    Hey everyone, So over at the JCF I've been trying to get a limited run of a Jackson SL2h in the new Absinthe Frost finish with matching headstock, abalone sharkfins and logo , and green Duncan's. Been working on this with Matt from Matt's Music and I thought I'd run it by people here to see if anyone is interested.


    This run would basically be pretty close to regular USA select pricing and it sounds like you have the choice to get an reverse headstock version for addition $100 or so. Also we were toying with the idea of matching green G&G cases. (another $100 add on)

    Anywoo here is the mock up I did. versions 1 and 2 are what we would be getting.

    heres the original thread with more details and pics for those who might be interested.

    Thanks

    Wow, I like it, I can't access the JCF thread on it though.
    Out of interest, what prices are you looking at and is it all payed at once, or half now half later etc.

    Prices are looking to be around typical USA select (soloist) prices like I mentioned before (reverse headstock adds $100) , then another $100 if we want a green G&G cases.
    Deposit is $350 according to Matt.

    Probably be best if you shoot me a PM (or email Matt- sales@mattsmusic.com) to get the actual pricing.

    and yup Duncan makes green pickups, right now it sounds like these would come with a JB and a Jazz.

    Goddamn, it is really really fucking nice. Ever since I saw the first post i've been convincing myself not to spend so much money on it. :lol:
    Its the shipping + taxes that really get me, not the price of the geet itself.

    I'm assuming it can be done? Powder coating isn't THAT expensive is it?
