So I just got home for thanksgiving and have been impatiently waiting for this to be delivered for the past six hours
Sadly its really overcast today and there is no natural light for good pictures. This is one of the nicest figured tops I have seen on a jackson Not that you can really see it with these shitty flash pictures Once I sell a couple more guitars my entire guitar collection will be comprised of 1 Hardtail AT and 1 Trem AT. I'm still adapting to playing leads past the twelth fret, the transition to the smaller frets of a 24.75 scale is a bit difficult if you've been playing 25.5, but I'm really enjoying the gibson scale. There is a certain character to rhythms on a 24.75 scale that 25.5 scales can't really get, or atleast that is what I'm hearing.
I'm not sure what pickups I want to drop in this yet. Any suggestions? I might just go with EMG 81x-89x , but I'm also always interested in exploring new horizons.
Also, to those of you who might be interested in Jackson stuff, I noted that neck angle is not the same as on my trem AT. Both were among the first 200 produced in the japanese factory, so its highly possible that the design was changed (like the 750xls) along its lifespan.
So you did buy it anyway? Congrats.
