While scanning local classfied sites I found something very interesting. One of those "electric guitar, Jackson brand" ads that tell you the seller has no clue about what they're selling.
Turned out to be a MIJ Jackson SLSMG in near mint condition for 250 bucks (these were 999$ brand new). Even frets are new. Just needs some polishing everywhere as the guitar was unplayed for a year an a half according to the seller. It's the early model with the EMG-HZs, but I recall these having thinner necks so I don't mind the pickups.
So here's what I found after exhaustive unpacking:
Both me and my phone suck big time at taking pictures:
Crazy ass high action, thin body edges:
Final QC inspection:
The guitar itself is in pretty good condition, but it feels completely abandoned. The strings have corroded, which in return corroded the bridge saddles. Everything else looks mint (even has the adhesive cover on the truss rod and tuners). So I'm putting a fresh set of 010s and polish everything and see how it sounds (it's terribly out of tune atm and I won't bother plugging it in). I also have a spare set of tuners from an USA Jackson (Gotohs) that i might put in there.
Guitar is light, but not overly so as i expected by its name and shape (my 90s Ibanez S7420 was MUCH lighter).
The hardware store is closed atm so I'll report back after the guitar is up and running again!
