    I played this guitar for quite some time and the things i hated where the position of the toggle switch (terrible construction but easily fixed) and the pick-ups were far to dull and just lacking but other than those two minor problems it is a damn good axe.

    This review seems more like spam than it does a review, considering over 2/3 of it is straight from the Jackson website...
