The San Dimas still has old school joint. Not a problem for me personally as I have large hands, but it could be better. My idea with my San Dimas Ash was to have basically everything that came on the Washburn N4 except the Stephens extended cutaway, which is insane! After playing an N4, the old school San Dimas neck joint is like riding a motorcycle that really needs one more gear on top----you know it could be better. At least my USA Charvels and even MIJs have an angled block/back plate. It makes a BIG difference!

The DK24 series joints are perfectly fine. I'd like to see SD duplicate that upgrade.

I still want to carve out some of the back of the lower horn on my N4. Can never get rid of enough wood around the heel.

Still no news from Jackson or Charvel?

They usually take their time. Last year, Jackson unveiled some guitars "new for 2021" in March. With Winter NAMM being COVID-postponed to "not winter anymore" this year, stuff might be released even later, who knows.

Seems to be our first taste of 2022. The Concept Series. Jackson's take on the Ibanez Premium line

So far the only thing from Charvel is a San Dimas in a chameleon finish

For the multiscale if the page is correct, it is a smaller than usual fan at 25.5-26.5”

Loving the H/S soloist & rhoads; also JL soloist!

Any idea where these will be made? I'm assuming WMI (Korea) for JL signature?

HS Soloist and Charvel are not bad but I was expecting something more exciting specially after the ESP reveal... Well, we'll have to wait a bit more I guess

Some concept series guitars that appeared as an exclusive shop only order in a UK shop, where saying Korea. That 7 string Rhoads is cool, even though the paint scheme could be better. But $2199, no stainless steel frets and a semi rigid case? That's pushing it a lot. The Ibanez premium guitars are cheaper and have stainless steel frets at the higher price points. They are made in Indonesia though and I understand they're cheaper to make there, but Jackson I feel is still not competitive to a other brands with similar specs.

Concept series - where are they built? Those prices scream inflated asian country pricing that isn't Japan.

They did a run of "concept" guitars a few years ago that where Korean made, limited run, I am assuming these are the similar.

Yeah, that Jackson 7 string headstock is for the person who absolutely has to have the biggest headstock! I think the only way I would ever buy a Jackson 7 string is if they came out with a headless 7 string.

Yeah I'm assuming Korea. The JL Kelly is MiK and I heard some people say the Concept will be made in Korea.

This wasn't from any official announcement. I just saw someone share some Zzounds links. Seems like they jumped the gun a little too early.
