I suppose the easiest way to fix it is to get your name changed to the one on the headstock.
Holy Effing Shizzl, that finish is an absolute stunner! Also beautifully photographed! I hope she plays as well as she looks! Congrats!
Jaw dropping axe! congrats!
Amazing! Love the direct mounted pickups. It makes the whole thing look really clean.
Literally mindblowingly beautiful!
that colour is pure sex
why the hell do we not just get normal production models in this colour?
I would own alot of pink guitars if there were.
It’s a different shade, but Jackson does currently make the SL4X in a pretty cool shade of pink. Killer guitar for the money IMO. The color isn’t as striking as this, but I think it’s still a great pink. Agreed though, the more the better.
Hngd. It’s beautiful, and I’m incredibly jealous.
That's perfection! I could imagine Marc from Veil Of Maya playing that, if he were still with Jackson of course.
This image was never more appropriate:
I'm very curious to hear that tone, probably sounds absolutely devastating with that thru-neck construction. Congratulations, and enjoy that beautiful guitar!
I saw that baby on Reverb a few weeks ago, and I gotta tell you that the first thing I thought was. "How would I repaint this guitar?" I know I'm in the minority here, lol.
But I do own a masterbuilt soloist as well (NGD pending) and they sure are fucking amazing. Probably the best neck on earth!
Regarding the pickups, I don't recommend the EMG81 at all. No balls and too much high mids. The 707s sounds thunderous in comparison and is still tight enough for any task, yet far more versatile. It also sounds infinetely better for leads, too. If you plan to stick to actives I'd recommend you the 57/66 set. They just sound and feel better than older EMGs to me. Warmer, hotter, and without losing clarity at all.
EDIT: I just remembered your username. You were the guy who owned the first Jackson 7 string ever, that custom Kelly. Wish I had the money back then...
Ha, I actually already put an 81-7 in and I'm liking it better so far. I'll probably switch back and forth a few times to do a better comparison since it's so easy with EMGs and a Floyd—no restring even needed.
And yep, that was me, I was the original owner of that Kelly. I bought it with my high school graduation and lawnmowing money haha. There's actually a matching Stealth too, so technically I guess there are two "first" Jackson 7s. I've actually tried to track it down a couple times—most recently someone on the Jackson USA FB group said they knew who the owner was somewhere in Europe, but it wasn't for sale. I'd buy it back in a heartbeat if I ever got the chance. Wasn't the greatest guitar ever—the bolt-on heel was really cumbersome—but so cool with the Ibanez trem.
It seems that our tastes in pickups differ then, I really couldn't stand the 81-7 in neither of my Soloists.
About the Kelly, yeah definetely not a shredders guitar with that neck joint but still super cool and I'd take it anyway as I have other guitars for that, ha!
Now, gotta join that Jackson owners group. You never see enough Jackson porn
Nice !!! Love the color ! Happy NGD !
How is the volume knob position ? I own a snow white SL2H Soloist and the only complaint I have about it is the volume knob position, which sometimes interferes with my right hand. Hope they corrected that for your model
It's basically in the normal position, but I guess being a 7 inherently puts it a little further away from your picking hand if you're on the low strings. Regardless, I've never found it to be a problem on any Soloists, but I know a lot of people have issues with it.
I do. It's highly dependent of picking style. If you rest your fingers on the guitar/steing/pickup/rings is no big deal, but if you play resting your wrist is easier to hit it. Also if you play other styles like funk or rumba that include percussive strumming.
On my Japanese Soloist I replaced the knobs for Q-Parts mini dome, which helped as they shave 3-4mm of height and 2mm width. I still hit it, though, and if it had a 3-way switch instead of a blade I'd have swapped them already!
Jackson took note on that for more modern models, but classic layout still suffers it. Usually not a big deal but I've been out of volume mid-solo because of this live and it sucks.
