    Real Shredder!

    Bought this guitar a month or so ago and immediately knew it was gonna be hard to put down. Immediately slapped on some Dunlop Heavy Core Strings and dropped it down to standard B or "Baritone" tuning to really play some heavy stuff. I love jackon necks as they are just so smooth and easy to play. The pickups sound sweet and I am super happy with the purchase. For the price this is a pretty awesome guitar. Rock on!!!

    Unbeatable at this price point!!!

    For a penny short of three bills, I don't see how any metal guitar enthusiast could pass the new Jackson JS series up. Jackson really has stepped up their game on the lower priced models and this Kelly is no different. It's not unlike the Kelly Professional XL series from the mid nineties. It features a fully bound neck and headstock, high output Jackson humbuckers, and a super fast neck. Could it be better? Of course! But certainly NOT at this price. I love the carved out heel which makes the upper fret access much easier. Lets face it, the real enthusiasts are going to swap the pickups anyhow. As a non-gigging weekend warrior guitarist, I think they're pretty decent as far as stock pickups go. I've been able to get some great clarity on clean settings and the harmonic squeals come off very well too.
    The basswood body is very lightweight. The body style is very comfortable. The neck is unreal and so very fast. All this, plus Sweetwater's 55 point inspection (played almost perfectly when I got it), their two-year warranty, and their unbeatable customer support, make this a remarkable purchase for you budget conscious shredders.
    I wish they made guitars of this quality as inexpensive when I was starting out!!!

    JACKSON KELLY

    AWESOME GUITAR, GREAT ACTION BUT IF YOURE NEW TO THE FLOYD ROSE TREMOLO YOURE IN FOR SOME WORK AS THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME ENCOUNTERING THIS BRIDGE STYLE, I WASNT EXPECTING TO SPEND TWO + HOURS GETTING NEW STRINGS ON, GETTING THE BRIDGE LEVELED AND THEN GETTING IT TUNED AND FINE TUNED AND LOCKED! IM SURE AFTER A COUPLE TRIES IT GETS EASY BUT IT WAS KIND OF A HEADACHE. BUT, FOR THE PRICE IT CANT BE BEAT AND WHEN YOU DO GET IT TUNED ITS A FREAKIN PRETTY BAD##S GUITAR - TWO DEVILHORNS UP FOR THE JACKSON KELLY BUY IT NOW! - TONE-
