    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. :lol:

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

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

    :yesway:

    Oh, I like that a lot. Same headstock as my SDK2. HNGD to you and what the hell is the model so I can track one down?

    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.

    That silver burst looks awesome, but fucking EMG, make passive sized 7 string active pickups already!

    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.
