One of these made it to the shop, and I'm pretty sure it's just a cheap budget Jackson for those looking for a beginner guitar or something. Here were the specs on it:

Basswood body
Maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and 22 frets
Vintage style trem
HSS configuration
Dot inlays
One volume, one tone and a five way switch

UTILIZATION

This guitar had all kinds of problems going on with it. For one, the frets were terrible. There were high and low frets that were causing all kinds of issues with action and bending. The edges were extremely sharp, too. Every time you slid your hand up and down the neck, it would dig into your hand. The neck joint wasn't that great; there was a nice noticeable gap in it. The nut also had some binding issues, which means it was cut incorrectly. It needed to be filed down a bit because it would snag on the string every time you tried to tune it.

SOUNDS

The guitar was pretty dead sounding. To make matters worse, it had some no name pickups that were probably created in house. The bridge was extremely thin and undefined sounding. I wouldn't recommend that bridge pickup to anybody. The neck and middle singles were half way decent. You could get some average sounding single coil tones out of them. I'd put them on par with the Fender Tex Mex pickups. However, they're far from ideal, especially for those looking for a good, proper single coil tone that really sings. The in between positions weren't too bad for clean tones, but the bridge + single position was crazy bright sounding.

OVERALL OPINION

I don't recommend these guitars. They don't make them anymore, and I can see why. It had all kinds of issues with it, and I'll be surprised if the store can even sell the thing. Personally, I would have thrown it away, but I'm sure it'll work for a decent beater guitar for someone who wants to smash it or something.
