    8 strings of Death! What a great guitar! I have always loved Jackson guitars and I knew when I decided to return to playing seriously, I would need another Jackson. I knew I wanted an 8 string and even tried playing on an Ibanez and Schecter at my local guitar shop...and wasn't impressed. Of course this "big retailer" didn't even have a Jackson for me to try out. I had been eyeing this bad boy on Sweetwater and decided to take the plunge after speaking to Kenny. Man! Am I glad I did?! Yes! Not only is this one of the funnest guitars I have ever played on but the service and dedication to music by the staff is unmatched! Unlike the big retailer I have here at home, these guys care about what I want and need and don't feel like I am bothering someone when I have a question. Kenny treated me with respect and he even called me while I was looking on the site for more gear just to ask how I liked my Jackson.
    Bottom line: Awesome Axe. Awesome service! I am a lifetime customer! Thanks.

    I wanted to own an 8 string. I tried out Schecter and Ibanez 8 strings. Coming from a 7 string the necks felt too thick.
    After reading the specs on this Jackson I decided to take a leap and buy it. I was not disappointed. This guitar is worth every penny.
    I forget that I'm playing an 8 string. The neck is amazing! Very thin... Extremely fast! possibly due to the glossy finished fretboard and the smooth body finish.
    You can play up and down the neck and your sweaty palms/arm wont stick! I cannot stress how comfortable this guitar feels.
    Sound is huge !! WIN!
