    I literally gave up trying to get a good representation of this finish. It goes from a plain brown/black in the dark, to this crazy bright amber/black when the light hits it head on. Sometimes it resembles that new Lava finish that Kiesel guitars came out with a while back.
    I was much more attracted to the Lagoon burst, but when I saw the top on this guitar, I couldn't pass it up. I think I was lucky to snatch it up and for $200 cheaper than what most sellers are charging for these. It really looks insane. I got it from Eddie's guitars near St. Louis. Came very well packed and within 5 business days.
    PICS!

    I have only had it today, but great first impression, with zero issues as far as I can tell. I'm stoked to have a piece like this, especially for my first Jackson.
    The only thing I need to do is condition the fretboard, because it looks and feels pretty dry.

    The guitar has a snappy attack and the Juggernauts round out the low mids to blend the attack and body of the guitar together nicely.
    I'm off to play some more!

    That finish is gorgeous, even with your pics, the subtle changes in color depending on the angle are noticeable.

    Congrats on the guitar, dude!

    That top, holy smoly

    .... i played once a Ibanez JBM100... well i visited the MUSIK MESSE in Frankfurt and i played that thing nearly for 6 hours at the Ibanez booth because this thing sounded so awesome... so i think the Jackson will be in the same league, maybe even above, than congrats
