Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Like all of my other Jacksons, this seems like it will hold up great. General Your general opinion of this product. I am partial to Jacksons, so I love this thing. Price was awesome and it play great. Some argue that bolt-on necks sound better that thru-body on Jackson guitars, but I actually prefer this to the bolt-on. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The previous review was right- the neck pickup sucks. It is usable, but it is muddy rather than the fat tone you might want. Either change it out or use with the bridge and it sort of balances the tone. Goosing it with your amp's EQ is possible but only at the expense of the bridge pickup. The bridge pickup is hot enough. Just don't expect the wicked tone of an 81/85 configuration. This is a moderate-high gain setup and should be used as such. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Wicked as hell. It does have more yellow than the picture shows (which I like much more), but I bought it after playing it in a store so I knew what it would look like.
Awesome for the money!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It does have some great features. Neck thru, Floyd Rose, Bound rosewood fret board, bound head stock, quilted maple top. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall it's great!! I plan to buy another in a different color. You couldn't build it yourself for less. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The EMG HZ bridge pickup is a piece of crap. It's very dead with no character. I changed it out for a Dimarzio H2N. Now it kicks total a$$! The neck blends pretty well and is smooth overall. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very nice finish. The center haas more yellow than the picture but it looks really good.
