    So I just traded for this from a very close friend of mine, took a lot of coaxing, but I got it out of him. It's my first guitar from this company and I absolutely love it and it plays great. It has huge wiring issues and none of the electronics on it work right now, but I'm going to replace everything with switchcraft parts and maybe drop some Dimarzios in it.

    No idea what top is on it, so it would be appreciated if any of you could help with that.

    We'll let the pics talk:


    What could be in here?

    Looks like you got your work cut out for you (that bridge for sure needs a bit of tlc) but I really like it.

    I'll be replacing the trem too, and pretty much all the electronics. Shouldn't take that long, I'm having a tech at a local shop do it.

    Congrats! Those older Jacksons are bad ass machines! Not sure what the top is for sure but it does look super nice.

    Yeah. I'm really intrigued by the top. It's really beautiful, no idea what it is.

    My God, that is better than sex.


    EDIT: I have two 1988 Jackson Limited Editions that it reminds me a lot of.

    One of these:

    I dunno, this looks like it has pretty big "eyes" for birdseye maple, it does look like it though.
