    Sometimes you stumble across a guitar that's just way to cool to pass up, and against your better judgement you are compelled to take it home with you. this was one of those guitars. When I first got my hands on it, the original owner clearly didn't take very good care of it. The hardware was corroded, fingerboard was filthy, but besides that the guitar is in excellent shape with not even a scratch on the finish. After giving it some TLC, it's almost as good as new.

    Congrats dude! I've been on the lookout for a MIJ Wine Drunk Dominion but they are rare these days. So I put together something pretty damn close with the Balaguer guitar builder:

    This price is for a bolt-on solid body with some extras like luminlay side dots and a roasted maple neck (plus SS frets and locking tuners standard). You could do a neck-thru chambered body for another $500 (gulp). Quickly gets pricey, but I'm not sure I would get along with a 24.75" so this would allow me to do 25.5".

    Now that's a classy looking instrument. I bet this has the Dimarzio Dominions too. Are the two small switches coil taps?

    ^ yes it does and yes they are.

    So I emailed Jackson asking for more info about the guitar, I found out that they only made around 100 of these. How lucky am I?

    I might need to get the frets leveled, but I am very picky about fretwork. Besides that its fantastic.


    If I am able to find an MIJ one I would probably scoop it up. This guitar rules.

    Had one of these and they are awesome. One of only a few guitars I regret selling. Just said that on the Cutlass thread as well lol - but - those are the 2. These guitars are a rare find these days. HNGD.
