    I'm changing my opinion now that you called out the frets. It's a JS30.
    There's an identical guitar on reverb for $300

    Also in the 2002 catalog on the jackson website...same pickups/bridge/hardware

    Used Jackson prices are just stupid right now.

    The black one has messed up binding and the Professional has a chunk missing out of the headstock.

    At least the NAMM guitar is something rare and in good shape. That might actually not be completely insane price-wise.

    I’m not big on the bengal finishes but it looks good in a darker color IMO.

    So I tried the Lace pu's. Really like the cleans, but with distortion, they sound muddy to me, lack of precision a bit..

    I have many skills, unfortunately mind reading is not one of them!

    Hopefully I'll have my SL1 back from repairs shortly and I can give it a proper NGD thread.

    GAS + a Moment of weakness is a hell of a combination.

    Where do you guys find these kickass Jacksons? I've seen so many that are literally perfect like that Bengal Kelly, some of the blood splatter stuff, swirls, but when I go to try and find any they just aren't anywhere to be found. I'm making my next guitar a USA Jackson for sure (so I can't buy one any time soon) but I have no idea where to find them.

    How do they stack up with ESP Japan? I've only seriously owned one high quality guitar and while it feels light years ahead of any LTD or production guitar I've played outside of my mockingbird, I'm not sure what I should be looking for when I eventually have the cash saved.

    you won't find the really good shit on reverb generally. Pretty much have to cruise multiple fb groups.

    Damn I was hoping not to have to go that route bc I hate Facebook but if it's where they are it's where they are. Do good things like that HSS Kahler Rhoads and the more rare shapes come up a bit or is it just SL2s and Misha sigs?

    depends on the groups. There was a custom shop rhoad warrior 7 that popped up recently. The less common stuff doesn't pop up often, and when it does people snatch it up quick. That rhoad warrior 7 was sold in under a day.

    Looks like I'm gonna be staying on there for a while. I eagerly await the day I have a solid job, the time, and the skills to appreciate something like that.

    Thanks for the tips, are there any groups where it's more common to find good stuff? I know nothing about the used Jackson market so all help is very much appreciated.

    the jackson specific groups are usually your best bet. Otherwise you could check out big selling groups like music gear exchange and advanced guitars/gear trading. If you're looking for pointys then check out the pointy guitars group or some related group.
