I Jacksons, and that is one hot instrument. I hope this isn't blasphemy in a NJD threat, but that Daemoness really shines right there in comparison. It's like those Stevie Wonder tunes that start with a great backup singer, and then Stevie comes in and the juxtaposition makes you realize just how amazing Stevie Wonder is.

Yeah I agree, that Daemoness looks like it sounds and plays more amazingly than the Jackson.

Basing how a guitar sounds off of looks (especially when you haven't been there to test either of them) is kind of silly. They're both constructed very differently and likely lend themselves better to certain things

Would you tell Picasso to sell his guitars?

Reminds me of Chris letchfords Blue 8, I'm a massive fan of the straight blue finishes. Since first joining sevenstring, I've really started to dig jacksons.. but everyone i've played the action has been way to low to for my liking, but i'm sure thats adjustable

Anyways, looks rad!

I don't think this has been said, but what radius did you get on it? Did you get a 16-20" like on your db1?

Pretty neat but not for me. Do you think you'd be able to get a side shot and a pic of the heel? Body looks thick as hell!!

Also, screw the basswood haters. I love the sound of it
Oddly enough I love the old heel rather than the AANJ, and I'm a shredder.

i believe that older block heel does increase sustain... it just makes total sense... theres more surface area of contact between the neck and the body which is of the most crucial areas on a bolt on guitar... there would be more vibration transfer between the neck and body... at least thats how i see it... i have never had a chance to A/B a block heel and AANJ... but all the RG550s ive played w/a block heel were always very nice to play and never seemed to hinder the upper fret access

Im not sure how contouring the heel will affect the tone, but i know the guitar sounds A LOT bigger than basswood guitars tend to sound, so i am definitely not going to be sending it to get contoured until AFTER all the guitar tracking is done, just because i wouldn't be surprised if that was contributing to the sound. Jackson think that is a good call as well.

Such a cool looking guitar! Im wondering if a contributing factor to the bigger sound could be that theres no trem route?

I was just messing with you since you got a Strandberg as well. Actually a student of mine now owns the blue bomber 8 that they posted. the color in the picture posted is actually lighter blue than the actual guitar, its the exact color of your new Jackson : )

Jackson may or may not be building me something pimp as well. I will of course post any pictures I get

Brighter blue guitars look great against maple fretboards. Have something like that myself and dig it. It is basswood / bolt-on maple as well and I fully agree to what you're saying, 'cause it's my best sounding axe as well.
