    Since this thread has been made for every other guitar manufacturer out there, lets make one for Jackson :)

    Michael Keene, seems to be getting a sig, kinda suprising considering recent shenanigans with The Faceless

    Looks like a fat caparison headstock:lol:

    Surprised for sure.

    EDIT: is that not a Vola?

    Are you sure that's Jackson? I'd be pretty surprised that's a Jackson judging by the headstock, but hell I hope I'm wrong because it looks badass.

    Oopsie, it is actually made by Vola. :facepalm: Thought that he was still with Jackson but he jumped to Vola during summer.

    I agree this does not look like a Jackson. Could it be a Vola Guitar Ares? They seem to be bolt on though. :confused:
    He has posted a pic of one on insta a while ago and it seems to me he is no longer associated with Jackson Guitars. I could be wrong here as I dont follow him that closely.

    Edit: got ninjaed

    It's doing as well as any Faceless tour in the last 10 years.

    I've heard from two dealers that 7-strings are remaining Masterbuilt and that there is no indication they'll be opening back up to Masterbuilt orders for at least the first half of 2020.

    That's all I really need to know really.

    Additionally, no USA Dinky or Soloist in 7-string, at least as far as anyone (two dealers) knows.

    Well that seems to follow trends at least. No one is really offering high end 7’s, apart from ESP USA and Ernie ball, etc. . It’s a shame.

    Jackson categorizes their Chris Broderick offerings as "soloists" even though the body shape and contours are different. I think they're covering the USA production 7s with that model as well as the juggernaut for a bolt-on alternative (in place of dinky).

    They’re not Jacksons? Keene has been playing Vola for quite some time now

    Don't get the vola hype.....Mayones rip off all the way....
    Anyways....hard to know anything about jackson before Namm, they don't let stuff slip easily...
    waiting for the rob Caggiano sig , the skatecaster/JJ mix looks great (import already ?) and the Loomis import sig maybe.
    Why not put this topic in 6 string ? jackson isn't a "true" 7 string brand for me (like ibanez or schecter etc...)

    Jackson NAMM is just Customs with graphics, $9K Masterbuilts, the usual lineup of imports and Signature USAs. Nothing new. Fender has neutered Jackson this past three years and hardly anything exciting or new has come out. Where are the Warrior Pros at least??? Give me the bevels back on my Kelly and Warriors!

    I guess it's very likely that an affordable Jeff Loomis signature will be revealed at namm?

    I think it's the opposite problem.

    They've let their master builders run the show and we've been subjected to their whims. All those relic'd "Gibsons" last year were what Mike Shannon wanted.

    Remember those goofy Pablo builds?

    They [FMIC] needs to rein things in. Give us stuff we might see in production some day.

    I liked Planetary Duality just as much as the next guy, but it’s hard to believe anyone would want to associate with Keene at this point.

    Yeah this. Some of those Pablo builds were just horrendous.

    Show us new production line guitars and build them in the Mexico shop that does the new Charvel DK24s. The Jacksons selling at basically that same price point are made in Indonesia and suck... which is really too bad because they look fantastic and spec out really well on paper. They are just horribly inconsistent and even the best one I played wasn't good enough for the money.
