okay i have a 1993 Jackson Dinky Professional XL. I think i see an opportunity to sell it and get a Fender Mexi strat "arctic white with maple fretboard" *ORGASM* anyways there are somethings that i will love about the jackson and i will love about the fendere. here is the comparison:

Jackson: HSS config, Schaller Floyd Rose, all black with black hardware (i hate the look of it)

Fender: SSS config, beautiful guitar, more of my style, but ill miss the craziness of the Floyd.

WHICH SHOULD I CHOOSE?!?! im going crazy over here....

*how would a hotrails, JB Jr, or little 59' sound in the bridge on the strat?*

Ah japanese versions are still pretty decent jacksons though. I guess its just going to depend what you like the feel of more.

personally id take the jackson... but some might argue thats because i worship satan

haha i LOVE the jackson, very heavy sound yet can calm down quite a bit. but it just doesnt have that strat feel. how would a hot rails soun din the bridge of the strat?

I've heard that hot rails actually sound pretty thin and sterile. I haven't heard much about the mini JB or mini '59 though.

And personally, I'd choose the strat since I love them.

well, since fender owns jackson your not switching at all =]


Fender bought out Jackson only a few years ago, in '93 Jackson was its own company.

dude,i got a '93 Jackson Dinky XL Professional... i've played some EXPENSIVE guitars including strats. i've never played a guitar tht compares to playing this Jackson... although i guess it really depends on your style of playing. i'm a die-hard metal head,so thts prolly the reason i like the Jackson xD but hey,there's my 2 cents

No, the Japanese Jackson will likely be superior to the strat.

Personally, I'd only trade for something of equal quality. I picked up and played a Fender Pawnshop series mustang the other day in the GC, it was pretty awesome and blew my Mexi strat away, and I love my strat. I'd imagine your Jackson is the same way.

Those jacksons had a reputation for being better then the american models at the time. Keep the jackson. Save for the MIM start its not as if they're expensive used.
