NGD - Baux content

Baux





Need some thing to cut it with...this looks promising




I--wait, no--what?





You know what, screw it. That tape doesn't look like it's on there all that tightly.





There! Free from it's corrugated prison.


Jackson, eh? Is it time for action?





All together now!

One




Two,




THREE




A SLAT3-7, you say? Don't mind if I do!




*Warning: poorly lit pictures ahead*







Now getting serious for a moment, I've always that the gloss black SLAT was really...boring looking in pictures. Well, it's really boring looking in-person also. That's ok, though. It's boringness means that I don't have to feel guilty about "defacing" it. . .


Like this:




Ahhh, much better.


I don't know why, but for some reason I thought that the arch would be...bigger




Lurvs this neck LURVS!!!!!!






So my impressions after one session of playing:

PROS
Easily the most comfortable neck I've ever played--beats any Ibanez I've ever tried.

Everything. Feels. SOLID.


CONS
It sounds really...dark--which doesn't make any sense. I'm guessing my amp (BlackStar HT5 ministack) can't handle the output, I need to tweak more, or try a new battery. The neck pup isn't bad, tho. Come to think of it, I only tried it at a low volume , hmmm.

9-52s? Really, Jackson? REALLY? B string is floppy as all ..... Putting some thicker strings on here.

Not crazy about the painted neck, but that can be fixed


Overall, I like it. The cons are minor, and I really can't overstate just how comfortable the neck on this damn thing is.

Love the balisong joke.

I agree with you on the painted necks, I don't know why you don't like them, but my palms get sweaty, and that makes painted necks feel sticky. Other than that, awesome guitar!

Sweet guitar

This is one of the few Jacksons I actually like and would purchase. That and an SLSMG.

Nice looking Jackson, man (especially with the EMGs).

Yeah, I'm not a fan of lacquered necks either. They're just troublesome for people like me whose hands get sweaty while playing. I've always been a fan of unfinished necks.

Congrats!! this is one of the ealy ones without the neck binding and stretched inlays.

I love the necks on these too and the one I played thru a Mesa Mark V sounded killer.

Same here. They just feel so much slower than satin or oiled necks.
