    Need some thing to cut it with...this looks promising

    I--wait, no--what?

    You know what, screw it. That tape doesn't look like it's on there all that tightly.

    There! Free from it's corrugated prison.


    Jackson, eh? Is it time for action?

    A SLAT3-7, you say? Don't mind if I do!

    Now getting serious for a moment, I've always that the gloss black SLAT was really...boring looking in pictures. Well, it's really boring looking in-person also. That's ok, though. It's boringness means that I don't have to feel guilty about "defacing" it. . .


    Like this:

    Ahhh, much better.


    I don't know why, but for some reason I thought that the arch would be...bigger

    Lurvs this neck :scream: :scream: :scream::scream: LURVS!!!!!! :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream:


    [​IMG]



    So my impressions after one session of playing:

    PROS
    Easily the most comfortable neck I've ever played--beats any Ibanez I've ever tried.

    Everything. Feels. SOLID.


    CONS
    It sounds really...dark--which doesn't make any sense. I'm guessing my amp (BlackStar HT5 ministack) can't handle the output, I need to tweak more, or try a new battery. The neck pup isn't bad, tho. Come to think of it, I only tried it at a low volume :scratch:, hmmm.

    9-52s? Really, Jackson? REALLY? B string is floppy as all fuck. Putting some thicker strings on here.

    Not crazy about the painted neck, but that can be fixed :evil:


    Overall, I like it. The cons are minor, and I really can't overstate just how comfortable the neck on this damn thing is.

    Holy fuck! They make butterfly knife style bottle openers?! Congrats, I'd open bottles just for fun with that thing. :agreed:

    Nice guitar too! :lol:

    grats personally your "cons" are all pros to me (other than the strings) so this just makes me want one even more

    Love the balisong joke. :D

    I agree with you on the painted necks, I don't know why you don't like them, but my palms get sweaty, and that makes painted necks feel sticky. Other than that, awesome guitar!

    Sweet guitar :metal:

    This is one of the few Jacksons I actually like and would purchase. That and an SLSMG. :yum:

    Nice looking Jackson, man (especially with the EMGs).

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of lacquered necks either. They're just troublesome for people like me whose hands get sweaty while playing. I've always been a fan of unfinished necks.

    Congrats!! this is one of the ealy ones without the neck binding and stretched inlays.
    I hope you got it for a deal!
    I love the necks on these too and the one I played thru a Mesa Mark V sounded killer.

    Thanks. Yeah, I don't even drink; I just bought the bottle opener to play with :lol:




    Same here. They just feel so much slower than satin or oiled necks. :noplease:




    Hell yeah, dude--stupid awesome deal!! :shred: Otherwise I'd have held out for one in Gunmetal Grey :hbang:

    It seems that you don't care about the black finish, so strip that fucker and leave it natural! :cool:
