I broke down and ordered a guitar today from Sam Ash. It's a closeout Jackson King V in a color they call Quicksilver. I figure it's a decent place to start modding and the price was right.
Jackson King V KVXT in Quicksilver
At $299 U.S., I couldn't pass it up, even though I'm not hot on the color. I see racing stripes in its future.
I'll get some pics going when it arrives this week.
