Erm no I dont think so.....But Jackson and Charvel joined forces to create a megalomanical totalitarian business in which they destroy everyone else's guitars (except Ibanez) and feed you theirs. Check em out, jacksons and charvels are hawt.


.....If Fender DID buy out Jackson, Im quitting guitar and music. Would hate to see the same model of a jackson, the Jackocaster, sold every year with little or no change.

Who knows? maybe its not true, and if it is maybe fender wont ***** the guitars over. Doesn't matter to me though, Stock fender style is good to me. And fenders a more shredable then "gabsons"... BTW great quote ChurchNSkate.

Why a shorter scale length? They've had 25.5 inches all the time.

Look, they were bought ages ago. I'm surprised you only noticed now. And they've always been making strat-based guitars, like the Dinky and Soloist. They still come in 80 different colours. They're just as shreddable. They've even been upgraded and now most of them have Duncans or EMG pickups.

I don't see why you all are complaining.
#13
thanks you guys for the last two posts but i'll also help clear it up, YES fender guitars bought jackson guitars but they realize that fenders *example: stratocaster* are different than jacksons *example: kelly* knowing this they own the business but they still have all the same workers doing the jacksons, their quality isn't going down, theyre actually gonna get better YES there still gonna be "shredable" so dont worry it was actually a good move and again i repeat FENDER STILL HAS THE JACKSON GUITAR MAKERS WORKING FOR THEM SO THE JACKSONS WILL EITHER STILL BE THE SAME QUALITY OR GET BETTER!!!!!!!!!! cleared up enough?

Jackson guitars have got worse since the buy out, you damned morons, just like Charvel got crappier when they went into mass production and joined Jackson, Wayne got forced out. Kramer are pretty much the same; they stopped making good guitars in the 80's and got bought out by Gibson.

A 2006 Jackson doesn't even compare to one of the 80's before they got really big and the buy out.

Um, morons, Jackson has been owned by FMIC for about 5-6 years now.

Chill the fuck out. Fender knows Jackson makes money by being JACKSON, not the Jackocater or whatever the hell you morons yelled out.

A USA SL1 or whatever will still pwn the pants off of whatever you have, don't worry kiddo.
haha

Aged guitars are always better, 2001 Ibanez RG1570 is going to be better than a 2006 RG1570, its just because of aged wood and all that ****, theres really no big deal.

Prices have gone up considerably since Fender bought out Jackson. An example of this is that when I bought my DXMG they were at $399 in US dollars. Then they went up to $472 for a while and now I believe they are around $540,,,,and I really dont believe that any of you can blame this on inflation. They maybe have changed the models a little bit over the years, and I suppose that would explain the price jump,,,but pretty much all lower to middle price range Jacksons have had this same type of price increase.

jackson didnot go down in any way after being bought by fender.They kept the same workers,models,and designs,and anyone who says the 80's jacksons are better than the ones today, means they've probaly never played an 80's jackson
