    Yeah kinda bland, it's fine, just not overly exciting.
    I much prefer his black Jackson:

    It would look better with either an ebony or maple FB. #teamnobrownfretboards

    Or at the very least throw on black or gold hardware so it all comes together nicely with the rosewood FB.

    If that had an ebony fretboard, reverse banana headstock, no neck pickup, Floyd Rose, gray finish, and some kind of upside down cross inlays, it would look pretty badass.

    I'm still having difficulty seeing him associated with Jackson and not ESP.

    God those look good, but the Japanese black ones with the non-reverse headstock are just the absolute bees knees.

    Cream, brown, chrome, and pearl. Horrible color scheme imo.

    Really reminds me of the ESP Random Star, especially the old ones he used, which I prefer more over the bevels on Gus's current sig. Makes me wish there's more star guitars on the market since this particular one made me love the shape a lot.

    Much, MUCH prefer the Jeff Loomis sig. But most Jackson USA sigs are ridiculously expensive anyway, so I’m out of their target demographic. Almost 5K USD.
