Killer axe
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is a great value for the money. It has a great tone and surprisingly good sustain for a bolt on neck. I had read other reviews that spoke poorly of the pickups but they are a lot better than I expected. The fanned frets were easy for me to get adjusted to. All around I am very pleased with my purchase.

Best bang for the buck 8 string
What is your opinion of this product?
I've owned this guitar since November and hands down it's one of the best 8 strings in the price range. Low action, good frets (no fret sprout) the compound radius helps keep the action low and smooth without the guitar noting out on bends. The fanned fret keeps intonation solid. My only complaint is that the pickups aren't the best. Still they are clear and with a good boost in front of your amp it still gets the job done. Put some locking tuners and great pickups this thing would slay.

Ive owned/tried alot of 8 strings in this price range...
What is your opinion of this product?
Probably one of the best stock. The fanned fretting in this is well done. Big plus is there was no fret ends sticking out or sharp. As per every Jackson the compound radius makes it a comfortable player. I've owned an ibanez iron label fanned fret for a solid year and this guitar measures up favorably to it. The natural finish and low gloss neck makes it an easy player. Probably the guitars weakest point is the pickups, the ibanez fanned frets (7 and 8) come with EMGs which makes it sound good. The Jackson comes with some kind of stock pickups.The upside is that the rail design gives them more high end, so they have a pretty decent cut to them. My advice is to run this with an overdrive/boost and you'll be good to go. In giving it 5 stars based on price overall a great guitar for its price
