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”.
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.
