Hi all, just wondering if anyone can identify this instrument, which I presume to be a Jackson. I'm thinking its a USA Custom Shop but am not entirely sure.

Looks like an Archtop Dinky from CS (only way to get that top in a Jackson) definitely the 3x3 Jackson headstock!

Jackson for sure! Do you have infos on the band/guitarist?

Olof Mörck of Amaranthe (great band, really good live too).

We're gonna need more close up shots of the... er.. instrument.

:lol:

That's what I figured :yesway:
He used to use Caparison guitars and in the last few years went to Jackson, using their Indonesian models. Happy to see him get a higher end Jackson! Looks sick.

Yeah, I can't yell for sure from the pics if it's a DK or SL but the one pic looks like it might be a bolt-on. So I guess that would probably make it like a Custom Shop DKAT with an AT headstock.

Reverse AT headstock, actually. Looks to me like it's set neck, too - the joint doesn't look right for a Dinky. Definitely a CS Jackson, though.

If it's neck-trough it's definitely a soloist. Altough I still it gave me a lot of dinky vibes xD

Hideous things. Old-school for life!

I'll admit that it looks better that way round, though.

Agreed - only reason I've never bought a KV2T. (Well, maybe that and those inlays combined - I might be able to deal with one, but not both.)

Always wondered why the KV2T had to be such a departure from the KV2 when the other "T" models (KE1T, RR1T) were basically the same as their Floyd counterparts with a tuneomatic bridge.
