Hey, I have a question about the Jackson professional series that they produced in the 90's. I'm getting (what I think is) a really great deal on a Jackson Professional series Rhoads, but I have some things to ask first. Now it says it has the great features of a USA model - full bound Ebony fretboard, Neck Thru, Seymour Duncan pickups, MOP inlays - , but theres Ita couple things. It says that it has a Jt590 Floyd Rose bridge. I know the USA models come with original Floyd Roses, so does anyone know if this tremelo is just as good, or lower quality than the USA models but still good quality? The guy also says he isnt sure what bridge pick-up is in it but he thinks its either a Seymour Duncan JB SH-4 or SH-6, and he thinks the neck pickup is a Seymour Duncan Full Shred. Does this seem weird to anyone who knows about Jacksons? I dont have experience with these pickups, but the guy says they're good.

Anyone thats got an info on this, it'd be really appreciated.

sounds like somebody who bought parts from different guitars and just slapped it together
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)
Floor Pod (for sale)

because there is also a gibson squire, and they don't want to get them confused

I think the JT-590 was made by Schaller, so is nearly as good as an original Floyd.

I cant try it out, thats the thing. I'll have to have it shipped to me. I'll find out what he is going to do about returns, because if its just a sell as-is/no returns type thing, it seems a little shady. I dont know though, I dont know that much about Jacksons, so anybody that does then I'd appreciate it if you could help me out.


Also, is there really any difference in an Ebny fretboard than rosewood fretboard? I dont think I've ever even played on an ebony fretboard, mainly because the few guitar shops around here dont carry really expensive guitars in store, you have to order them from the manufacturer. I obviously know that ebony's darker and doesnt really show any grains in the wood, but tonally, is there any difference or is it all for looks?

Ebony is brighter, Rosewood is warmer. Personally I prefer ebony over rosewood, and maple over both.

Only thing none stock are the pups if they are Duncan. Do they say Duncan? Fullshred is likely ****ty with a JB in the bridge if that's what it is. It h as the DiMarzio-like allen head pole pieces. Otherwise, the Pros were considered on par with the USAs.

Yeah, the picture shows the neck pickup as all black with the allen wrench holes, so it's gotta be a full shred. They're a ****ty pickup? I've never heard one so I dont know how they sound, why are they bad?


Also, do you know anything about the tremelo? He says its a Floyd Rose Jt590. Someone earlier said that they were made in the Schaller factory so if thats the case then I'm guessing they're good.

They aren't bad pickups, but don't go well a JB in the neck. Way too much output, and a totally different tone. They work with an Invader and that's about it.

The JT590's are great trems. The only issue with them, like some older Schallers, is the intonation screw holes can strip if you take them all the way out.
