    Oh hell yeah, amazing. I've had my eye on a couple used Jacksons lately. This isn't helping.

    Great looking guitar! I love the flamed wood top and the body shape is very interesting indeed. How do you find the shape comfort wise?

    Me too as of now. Curious about getting an old US-made soloist or something given they're only like $12-1400.

    I think it's super comfortable. I have a couple explorers and I'm generally use to them being big and not comfortable, and didn't think essentially cutting out a fraction of an explorer was going to yield anything better, but this is perfect. Angled in classical style it wraps around your leg in a more natural way than a boden imo -- the boden would need to be bigger to get it quite right for me at least. Just straight on the leg it's better than super strats since the it really wedges on both sides of your thigh. And standing you have that extended explorer-bit rear end that tucks under your arm.

    The only thing that I think could make it better would be to add a JP6/7 style forearm cut, but that would be just too hideous.

    Kind of tempting to throw some PAFs in there just to see what it sounds like :D I mean hey, Albert King played a V.

    Right in the spirit of the 4 Kings of the Blues - B.B, Freddie, Albert and Kerry.

    You can find them even cheaper than that too - keep an eye on GC Used. One thing to keep in mind if you really like that neck is that WRs typically have "speed necks" which are pretty noticeably smaller than a standard Soloist neck. I far prefer the Soloist necks personally - so much so I've let go of stuff I've loved otherwise because of the smaller profile. That's not to say you couldn't like both, just to illustrate that it's a meaningful difference between the two.

    ^^ Good to know! There's the whole Jackson soloist/Caparison connection, and I'm very experienced with Caparison necks, so was surprised that the WR-1 neck was not at all the same. Maybe this explains it.

    Caparisons have very similar necks to the early '90s Jackson Pros (not really a surprise given the history) which are kinda different from the USA necks.

    Of course, pre-1990 the USA necks are all over the place, and even after that there's considerable variations on the true CS guitars.
