The only things that would make these better would be binding on the neck and headstock, and a passive pickup option.

Looks like they changed the two biggest complaints that the SLAT3-7 got, the inlay and headstock.

Good to see a non-CS Jackson 7. Maybe this one will actually be available for sale.

I dig what appears to be a white/silver variant on the wall. Fake tops never really did it for me.

Need help with setting up a trem?
Need info on your Ibby?

Pls pls bring this out with binding. I can't take Jacksons seriously without binding on the neck and headstock.

It's not a NGD

It's a new model Jackson is releasing.

I like it without the binding personally.

I think too many guitars have binding these days anyways...oh and this guitar is sweet.
I'm not sure what you mean by "entry level". This is like mid range stuff I think.

Please, please let this be released as a fixed bridge model!

I definitely dig it, but binding, an option for passives, and ebony would make it so much nicer. If LTD and Schecter can do it, why can't Jackson?

So I'm guessing that's a 707 combo.

Would prefer and 81-7 in the bridge myself, but that a small change I suppose.

Looks like certain aspects were "improved" over the older SLAT3-7. The differences are in the newer smaller headstock vs. the bass guitar headstock, piranha inlays vs the sharkies (toss up here - I'm a fan of sharkies), Made in India vs. Japan (Japan's definitely better here), fixed and floyd versions and what looks like no binding on these which could very well be prototypes.

If a guitar like bulb's went into production I'd sell anything I had spare for it. As long as it wasn't a sig with the huge P on it. I don't like P on my guitars.

Right headstock, right inlays. Wrong pickups, but that's replaceable.

I bet they are gonna be around $899. I wonder if these are 25.5" or the 26.5" I heard about at NAMM. And that quilt is probably a veneer but it looks very nice. Seems like they did well on the color choices. Next question is mahogany or alder? Looks like Mahogany.
