    For what it’s worth, I’ve had 3 USAs and played a couple of the imports in stores and haven’t found an issue. Only problem was one of the USAs (the one I still have) had a squealy pickup (that Jackson was quick to replace)—but the both needed replaced anyway since I don’t care for them, so I didn’t even care. The imports obviously didn’t feel as good as the others, but solid for what they are. I’m not sure if I’m just lucky, not as picky some of you, or the issues are being overstated. But that’s been my experience.

    I can see it now. Pink shark fin inlays would be over the top, but that's my inner COB fanboy coming out.

    You're not alone. I've lusted after a Pink Sawtooth for bloody years. Ironically it's easier to get a CS Pink Sawtooth than the LTD Alexi-600SE

    I actually meant to say pink piranha inlays even though all of the sigs have moved away from them. Sawtooth, shark fin, they’re all good!

    Dude these being almost 4k is an absolute travesty. No offense, but they're not the only company making solid color, roasted neck super strats these days.

    The funny thing is, I much prefer the first generation a lot more. Thankfully those can be bought on the used market for a very solid price.

    And they quite frankly aren't worth that money :2c:

    I love my HT6 don't get me wrong but goddamn I wouldn't pay almost $4k for one, let alone $3k

    I was gasing pretty hard for one of these for quite some time but I feel i could get more guitar for the same money. Maybe if these had an option for a trem I'd me more inclined.

    I see the vacuum sealed polystyrene support bodge job to compensate for how the shit case makes the guitar rest solely on its neck is a standard feature :lol:

    Mine came with the exact same support, same colour crinkly bag around it and everything. The guitar feels crap the way it rests in there, so i've left it in.
    What i don't understand is i hear the "standard" Jackson USA case is great.

    Yeah that one ended up going back which I posted about in my ngd but they did move away from the blue bulb case to the the black Jackson one for the new models.

    As much as I've liked my USA HT6, the case really does suck—doesn't remotely fit the guitar to keep it still, and is also crappy quality. Worst part is they made it look like a G&G. I'm so glad they changed it on the newer ones.

    Yeah, my HT6 from the new run has the Jackson flight case and it fits great. Big improvement from the gen 1 cases.

    Ordered one of the black pro series ht7s b stock. I figure at the price they've got them out now it'll make a fun mod platform if nothing else.
