I wonder if that is the one that popped up on reverb a few days ago for 3000.
Those prices are nuts these days. Remember when i got the white with black bevels one for around 700 and sold it for about the same. Now they want more then they were new back then :/ one of the only guitars i ever regret selling though, great score, enjoy!
Nah, this one wasn't listed anywhere, fell into my lap via IRL happenstance. I did pay a little more than original MSRP for it though (although not 3 grand!!) Justified it as destiny calling + inflation cheers!
Putting lightweight tuners also help. Shaving 50grs out of a headstock is already noticeable, and you can add extra mass to the body with a big brass block for the tremolo.
If @soul_lip_mike wants locking tuners I've measured Gotoh SGS510s as lighter than Hipshots and Sperzels
I cut my teeth playing an original Jackson RR on tour from 84 until about 1991 and sold it when lost record contract and moved from the touring to the Entertainment lawyer side of things. Have not touched or played a Jackson since then.
I want something really nice and it can be a RR or Super Strat style. What would you recommend. See my signature for guitars I have now and general budget issues . . . none within reasons, but want to be smart about it.
between availability and import tax you might be better off looking into the new MJ series rather than a USA. They're doing a Rhoads, a load of Dinkies and a Soloist
