About a week ago I was talking with a good friend of mine about a 'new' music store in the area of where I moved to. He saw some sevens hanging there that he thought I should check out. So last weekend I went to check out the place and he had indeed some Jackson 7's even. I ended up noodling on those for a bit and before I knew what happened I fell in love with the one who ticked all the wrong boxes for me. no floyd, I really dislike the 4+3 headstocks etc... but still I kept noodling on it because that neck was just absolutely awesome... He had a Rhoads 7 but I already have one of those and since I don't play live atm, there is no need for me to own a second one right now... though they are just amazing! But I could use one that is easier to live with than my kelly for songwriting and recording... fast forward to today, sold off my last kelly 7 and brought it home... It's my second Jackson x series, and both are equally stunning to play... they really nailed it with these IMO.
