The Jackson USA PC-1 Phil Collen is an electric guitar that boasts a quilted maple top and compound-radius flame fretboard to provide visual appeal that’s as captivating as it is original.

A double-bladed Sustainer humbucker up front sings it sweet and quiet, while a DiMarzio HS2 in the middle and DiMarzio Super 3 at the bridge dish out that signature Phil Collen chunk and screaming sustain. The Jackson PC-1 has a mahogany body and quartersawn bolt-on maple neck. Floyd Rose Original double-locking trem. Jackson includes a hardshell case with your PC-1 Phil Collen Guitar.
Jackson’s compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you’ll play better!

Incredible sound! Astute design! Top shelf quality guitar in both physical appearance and sound. I will never look back.”

Best guitar I’ve ever owned! Bought it right here from Zzounds about 3 years ago. The sound is incredible for soloing! I can get any sound I like out of it, blues, rock, jazz, metal, it’s all there! Some people may like different pickups, but I have no problems and will never change them! Also,  the old saying holds true to “crap in, crap out” and with this guitar it’s “gold in, gold out”. Everything I plug it into sounds great! Either an expensive Marshall or a cheap Digitech or PoD product, it all sounds great! This guitar will make you want to practice more, that’s how great it sounds! (note, I do not work for Fender or Jackson).
 Floyd Rose, Mother of pearl inlays, Seymour Duncan’s, the best quality stuff you can find. This guitar is almost exactly the same as the KV2 other than the body shape.
  Ease of Use:
‘ve been playing this guitar every day for about 3 years now and find it very hard to put down. This guitar plays like butter and when you put some finger ease string lubricant on it, you will play like lightning and thunder! Arpeggios are but a breeze on this thing. I feel like I can play anything.
The quality of this guitar is what i call craftsmanship, it’s not that heavy nor too light. After 3 years of everyday playing it is only now starting to go out of intonation a little and the Floyd Rose screws are getting a little rusty, but i live in a high humidity climate so that is expected.
 They could easily have charged more for this and I would have still bought it and kept it. The only other guitar I found to have sound equally as good would be, a high end Hamer Elite. I think it is a fair value for someone who is serious about playing guitar. I mean, why else would Randy Rhoads, Marty Friedman, Kerry King, Etc. play them? Because they are just like a vintage Marshall stack, “You’ve tried all the rest, now try the best”.
Manufacturer Support:
Never had to call Jackson/Fender! I’m a guitar tech myself so I support myself when needed.
 The Wow Factor:
This guitar has alot of “sex appeal”! When you wear it and play it, women will flock to you like blind sheep! Honestly? Nobody ever notices the guitar once they hear the sound coming from it.

The Jackson Y2KV Dave Mustaine signature guitar was introduced in 2000 (see above for a scan from the 2000 Jackson catalogue). 2002 catalogue scan can be viewed here. The first production run of 32 Y2KVs was started in January 2000. These were assembled between March and August. 80 more were started in September 2000 and 33 more in December. Most likely another circa 150 of them were built before the series was discontinued in 2002.
Dave Mustaine had a truckload of Y2KVs. He received 10 of the initial batch of 32 and most likely got another 15 or so later on. He also had many custom shop Y2KVs including the prototypes. Dave has sold most of his Y2KVs – first through Andy Brauer and then later on Ebay. Some of them were also given to his friends.
During the Andy Brauer auctions in May 2002 Dave sold practically all the production Y2KVs that he got from the first patch. Below is a group picture of the auctioned guitars.

The white Y2KV serial U07869 was recently seen on Ebay. The silver Y2KV with a matching headstock can be seen with it’s owner here.
When Dave’s contract with Jackson came to an end he got a large number of Y2KVs. These have high serial numbers and they were sold during the Ebay auctions:
