The more I play this guitar, the more I love it. The compound radius fretboard with jumbo frets lets your fingers fly up and down the neck. Of course the EMG pickups sound great with the tone of basswood wings and maple neck. One thing that isn’t in the description is the neck and headstock has black binding which is a plus. Sweetwater’s top notch service is what puts over the top. If you are looking for an affordable Jackson guitar that plays and sounds awesome, this is the guitar for you.
