    The camo looks even better in person. For some reasons the colors look all washed out in any photo I have ever seen.

    I used to used 10-52+66 tuned to drop A.
    I wouldn't use light strings on it at all..it just doesn't feel right to me.

    10-46+58 is what this guitar has been using since purchased. Plays flawless to us (I sold it to my bandmate).

    yeah i ended up throwing some 11-48+58. They feel great. I totally love this guitar, it's really light which is a huge plus. The neck is just perfect for also. Funny thing is like the past few months my friend was always telling me to get a jackson but for a bit there i was gonna end up getting an ESP. Now i don't think i'll ever get an esp, i really like these jackson guitars.

    Just to show how crap guitar prices are here in Oz, to get a new COW (the Japanese one) without a case, approx $1500 US :nuts:

    I use 0.13-0.56+0.64 to tune in G# (not dropped). This guitar is damn cool for this price, and sounds great with 707. I'd like to try 81/7 on this model, and also customize it painting like an ESP custom:

    damn the poll values went wrong and don't know how to change them, sorry :nono:

    I've heard a lot of good things about this guitar now. I know Jackson plays very well in general. I'm just not a fan of the lack of flexibility in a single pickup, and all these 7 strings are coming in mahogany which is nice, but its such a dense wood to use in low tunings.
