The JS1 electric guitar is Jackson's lowest-priced Dinky-style axe. It features a 22-jumbo-fret rosewood fingerboard, 2 humbucker pickups, vintage fulcrum-style tremolo, a volume and tone control, and 3-way toggle switch.
Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

This guitar is great for those starting to play guitar. The pickups are ok and the neck is set o perfection.Tremolo is also great. The guitar is heavier than some guitars but everything else makes up for it. I would recommend this guitar for beginners.
This is NOT a bad guitar for the price!! I've wanted a Jackson for some time, but really couldn't afford the "Top" of the line ones. First thing I did though was replace the stock strings with GHS Boomers .009 gauge and that made it sound really good. Then I adjusted the pickups which again Great Sound!! The frets are alittle rough on the edges of the neck. The neck itself is very nice and fast. The body is comfortable, and I like how the body angles back where your arms rests while playing. Very Nice. All in all this is a really nice guitar for someone just starting out, or even for someone like myself who is an Active Musician and would like to add yet another guitar to his or her collection without going broke. I give it a "4" out of "5"
The guitar has a great look to it but the performance isn't all that great. That action is pretty good after a bit of tweeking. One problem I had was the tone knob always came off. I replaced the humbuckers with emgs because the stock ones have terrible squeeling. Other than that its an ok guitar.
This was the first guitar I ever bought and it is not a bad beginner guitar. its awesome to learn how to play metal or hard rock on it with the floyd rose and tremolo. the pick-ups are good but not the best. It sounds good and I hope to play it until I can afford something better. If you are interested in playing metal i suggest an Ibanez.
i got this guitar about a year and a half ago for my first guitar. it has awesome tone from the stock pickups, the neck has a great feel, and nothing seems to go wrong unless i screw it up. my father has played for a very long time and he even said that he would even buy it. i did do some tuning like lowering the action and putting in some new pickups, which made it sound about 10x better than before and improved playability by about the same. overall i would recommend this guitar to both experienced players and beginners alike.
