This is yet another low end Jackson made overseas. The guitar has the following specs:

Basswood body
Maple neck with a rosewood fretboard
24 extra jumbo frets
Dot inlays
A Jackson licensed floyd rose
HSS configuration
One volume, no tone and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The Japanese guitars back during this day had some hit or miss things going on with them. There were some that were killer. These were the ones made with the same woods as the American counterparts. They were also built by a certain luthier. The lower end ones made with basswood don't really sound that great, and I find their quality isn't quite as good.

The floyd rose on this thing is a Jackson floyd rose. They're not the greatest at staying in tune and kinda suck tone out of the guitar because of the cheaper metal that they're made out of. If you're going to keep this guitar, I think replacing the floyd would be a good idea. I like the original floyd the best. Aside from that, the guitar wasn't too bad. About average for what to expect with these.

SOUNDS

This one had replacement pickups, so I'll be going on those. The bridge was a Duncan JB. This gave it some nice bite, and it works for nearly any style you can think of. It can do blues, rock, metal and any other genre you can think of. The middle and neck pickups were Hot Rails. These gave the guitar a super fat sound that works awesome for lead tones. You can get some crazy sick legato going on. I think the Hot Rails in the middle is a bit too overpowering, but it all depends on your tastes.

OVERALL OPINION

These can be somewhat hard to find, but they're not too terrible. There are some better Jacksons out there that are made over in Japan, but if you're a fan of these, it's worth checking out. Just be sure to at least replace the pickups. They really give this guitar new life.
