I kept hearing about this , wanted to try it out.
It’s my first Jackson as well as 7 with a 26.5 fretboard radius , so far it doesn’t feel very different than my 25.5 7s and 6 strings . Perhaps I’ll keep it ! Don’t know if I like the Seymour black outs as I’ve already contemplated changing them . Cheers 🥂

Congrats, looking good! Cool to hear the 26.5 scale feels pretty similar, I've been thinking about that for my next 7.

Nice, congrats on the guitar... now allow me a 2 questions:
1 - I've never heard of 26.5 fretboard radius, with this values it's more on the scale length...
2 - why is that the post is of a NGD, but 66% of the pictures are of its packaging? WE WANT GOOD HIGH RES PICTURES OF ALL DETAILS... no pressure 😁

Cheers bro, just kidding, may that lady serves you well for years to come, she looks "tuxedo sharp", elegant...

Looks good, I'm very nervous of Jackson pro series after mine though.

I don't notice 26.5 that much unless I keep switching between guitars a bunch. Also my other guitarist makes super stretchy riffs

I've been MIA for a long while (again), but I also got one of these today.

Looks pretty flawless to me, despite my hesitation with recent Jackson Pros. Hope it's been the same for you!

I thought the same as well but so far the quality seems to be excellent , to my surprise ! It has a better feel than my relatively new Majesty 7 . Its ease of playability is outstanding imho

Yeah, I'm impressed.

Further evidence that it matters more which country/factory is making things than which product line it's in.

These are made in Korea at WMI, I believe. Great quality stuff there, I think we all can agree. The dinkys made in Mexico by Fender are also solid. The soloists from Indonesia though have been less than impressive.

I'll make a NGD post eventually. Enjoy! Play some Nevermore on this!

I have enough superstrats but these look killer. Korean Jacksons are getting rave reviews and the price is not so stupid as Ltd current offerings.

(patiently waits for a 7-string Kelly sig to be released)

I'd be more inclined to get a MIK Jackson for sure. Everything I've gotten from Indonesia has been crap

How's the forearm contour on these? Broad and 'horizontal' like a RG/Luke/Suhr Modern or narrow and more 'vertical' like a Fender Strat/older Caparison/older ESP KH2 where you miss the contour completely unless you strap the guitar right under your nose? This is literally the one thing that's keeping me from getting one...

For anyone interested though Bax Shop in Europe have a couple B stock for less than 1,400 + an additional 10% discount.
