i just bought a jackson KE3 Kelly, it sounds excellent and looks ****in mean.
but the strings feel so loose even when the guitar is in perfect tuning.
i never had this problem with any of my other guitars.
i need to know how to tighten the strings and still keep them in tune.
can anyone help me???

This happened to my guitar before and your probably going to hate me but...i seriously can't remember right now, ive been up all night and cant think for shit.

How tight the strings are depends on a few things:
- the scale of the neck
- the gauge of the strings

The longer the scale, or the thicker the strings, the tighter they have to be strung to get the same pitch. I'm guessing the strings are just a lighter gauge than what you're used to, probably .009. So i recommend replacing the strings with some gauge .010 or .011 ones. Thicker strings also give a fuller tone so it's a win/win situation

ok cool, but i would've thought that jackson would have put the correct ones on and put them on properly, coz i only got it today.....
slack bastards haha.

It's nothing to do with how they've been put on, it's just different gauges have different tensions. Like LKW said, if you're used to .10's or .11's then .09's will feel thinner and softer. Pretty much all Floyd equipped guitar's ship with .09's and that's what they're set up for, hardtail's and vintage trems ship with .09's or .10's depending on which brand it is.
