If any of you remember a thread I made quite a bit ago (most likley not), I was on the verge of buying a 1990 Jackson SL1 Soloist.

Well the time has come, I have finally purchased a (additional?) guitar to add to my Jackson Guitar family tree.

Thanks man.

Ah, it sounds so ****ing sweet. I'm saving up to get a 6505 Plus', amp head, I can't even fathom the tone I will get out of it atm. I'm currently running it through a little crate practice amp . And the thing gets the most universal tone I could ever imagine, I can't wait to plug into a tube amp to hear this thing scream.

Anything from Motley, Skid Row, Metallica, Trivium, Megadeth, Pantera, Lamb of God - to SRV, Clapton/Cream, and hell. Even folk.

Worth every penny.

To be honest I'm not sure, all I know is that they're all Seymour Duncans.

I got a pretty great deal. That guitar, with that paint job runs about 2400-2600. That guitar itself runs 1700 + (new), with a paint job I don't like (and Fender has bought them out now, yuck). I got it for 1500, which I think is a great deal, I saw a few SL1 Soloist (Same Year) around Ebay, they all go for 1600+, and if they have a spectacular paint job, you can expect to add a couple hundred to that.

So

Oh, no. I don't have 2 SL1's (I wish..If I ever buy a new guitar again, it will definetly be a SL2H or another SL1!).

I have a Jackson DKMGT Dinky. Which I'm thinking about selling.. Hmm. *heads off to the FS forums here*

that middle pickup probably ran the price down a bit, but on my soloist i never really use the middle hotrails, so thats probably a good thing it's different. Plus that is a rad paint job and all the SL1's at L&M with big paint on 'em are like $2299.99. So ya, thats a great deal. Altough you might want to put a new floyd on, that one looks pretty beat up.

It could be, I don't really use the middle hotrails either. The Floyd works great dude, looks can be very deceiving. :p


All Heil Jackson SL Series.

My friend has a cool RR, has a bar and all. I personally don't like them, I like the Soloist better.

You will buy a soloist [/jedimindtrick]

...Brutal....

Not so much luck, I had to sell my motorcycle (Which I bought), Xbox 360 (Which I also bought), a camper shell on my truck (which was free with my truck, which I bought), and some money from work (which I earned :p to buy it.

I'd do it again if I needed.

Nice Jackson too by the way.
