so, i've been slowly getting a few of my guitars that have been collecting dust back up into playing condition. the most recent being my Jackson SL-1.
let me tell you, this thing has been through hell and back. i first bought this guitar new off the shelf at Sam Ash in '98 or '99, had an EMG 81/SA/SA set installed, and it was my main player for about the next five years, i mean literally the only guitar of mine i cared to play. this one saw MANY shows and has plenty of battle scars.
anyway, i eventually started getting more and more into sevens, and even more away from EMGs so this spent a few years in a case.
so i decided it was time to get this thing up and running again. the electronics were gutted awhile back when i sold the EMGs, so i started from scratch with a few pickups i had laying around and went to work.
Seymour Duncan JB (bridge), SSL-4 Quarter Pound (middle), JB Jr. neck/ middle (neck)
Schaller megaswitch S model
new output jack
and all new wire
i still need to pick up a new OFR trem arm assembly for it, but other than that it's pretty much back in full force. the JB and JB Jr. just sound perfect in this guitar, i couldn't be happier. while the SSL-4 sounds surprisingly good, especially clean, and in combination with other pickups, i just can't deal with non-hum cancelling pickups, so this this will probably get pulled soon.
all in all, i'm really having fun playing this guitar again
Oh man, I want that. That is slick. I was looking for one of those around that time actually, around '97 actually. I dig the stickers on the case too.
