Wow, that's awesome. I've seen that around from time to time, kind of legendary.

Some guitars float around on the interwebs so long, I'm tempted to give them names. But then I'd only think about them too much and buy them, so.....

I've stalked certain rare ones for years even...

Snagged this wee Pro Mod San Dimas about a week or so ago. No NGD thread on this one so briefly...nice build quality, sounds good...very bright...great mids from the SD's and the neck profile which I was a little worried about (I have terrible Carpal Tunnel) is sweet!

Excellent! I have both of those, but my Soloist is white. I've always wanted one in Ferrari Red as well since seeing Robin Crosby's red King V and it WILL happen eventually.

That's a Fusion, not a Soloist. Still awesome, and Ferrari Red is the best red.

That's the only swirl I've seen with a swirled headstock. Awesome score.

Here is my Charvel San Dimas MIM, which I bought as a way of having a budget Washburn N4 (Nuno) shredder. Almost all of the main ingredients are there: natural ash body, maple neck, ebony board, Bill & Becky L500XL (added by me) and '59N, but the Stephen's Cutaway really is a BIG deal, so I'm sure I'll get a real N4 one day, probably in either Paduk or Mahogany.

Doesn't take anything away from this project, though. This has the best frets I've ever encountered on any import guitar (perfect), very impressive. Better than the frets on my 2010ish MIJ Charvel actually. And the L500 is very musical for edgy music and very distinct from the '59N, it is absolutely a bridge pickup. The wide range is even better with the factory 6-pack wiring using a push-pull volume knob.

Shipping on this was delayed a few days until today, I'm so fucking happy! The Ebony Fret board and frets look flawless for it being a 30 year old guitar. View attachment 94560

Congrats on this! I have a Fusion Pro in some sort of trans finish that I just had refretted with SS frets. They're such killer guitars and it makes me kinda sad that Jackson stopped making Fusions. It would be a dream of mine to snag a USA Fusion but they seem to go for stupid money if they even pop up.

I'll probably pick up a DKR MJ in black in a few months. I will just wait for reviews first. Or maybe wait for the next release when they sort out why the black one has white binding on the headstock and none around the fretboard. It's a stupid design.

At least the white one has black binding throughout.

The white MiJ DKR does not have binding on the neck. Played one at my local Jackson dealer.

I need a little help. Working out a possible trade for this Jackson, but I can't come up with a price for it as prices on used Soloists are all over the map. Anyone have a rough guess as to what this might be worth?

I saw this and immediately went “Ah I too have a Nuno!” Lol. Great looking guitar man.
