This guitar is everything I had hoped it would be and more. My first guitar with a double locking trem system and I have to say it is quite awesome. As with any guitar, it was not very playable straight out of the box. Jackson provides a guide to set it up along with all the clearance numbers you will need. After setting it up and tuning it, it played much better. That being said, it's still not perfect. There is a lot of buzzing on the E and A strings from the open to the 3rd fret positions. I raised the string height slightly, but that did not help much. So I am going to install a shim under the lock nut and that should do the trick. Aside from the buzzing, the guitar plays great and the trem system is a lot of fun. The hardware on this guitar is top notch and sturdy as well as the quality of the entire instrument. The pickups sound great and the tone knob actually works correctly: varies tone without losing volume. Given this style of guitar, it is great for metal and rock playing, but also sounds great when cleaned up and used for other styles. Lastly, it is a great instrument for the price and I recommend this guitar to just about anyone!
I have only had it about 2 weeks so I can't really comment on reliability yet. My main playing style is rock/hard rock/metal. I havn't played seriously in years so this was a way to get back in for cheap to see if I even wanted to play again and I have always loved Jackson/Charvel guitars. So far I like the way it feels and plays. Its smooth and silky on the thin fast neck. The Jackson tremolo is great and keeps the strings in tune pretty well. The Jackson pickups are bright and sound good but the three way switch doesnt have a whole lot of effect on them so I may upgrade to some SD Blackouts soon. I got the flat black finish and it looks great and doesnt show fingerprints. The guitar has some weight to it but its not terrible. Overall the tones are good and it has decent sustain. Its a bolt on neck but its easy to access the bottom of the fretboard due to the large contured cutouts. Out of the box it needed a little tweaking. I took it to Guitar Center to have them do a setup on it but I think they made it worse so I wouldn't recommend having them work on it for you. I am going to take it back soon because you have 30 days to take it back and get adjustments done. The 6th string is buzzing on every fret to the 15th now and it wasnt doing that when I took it in. I took it in for the 3rd and 4th strings sounding flat at the 5th fret. It still sounds kinda flat and now I have 6th string fret buzz to go with it so like others have suggested, find a real luthier that knows what they are doing. So, overall, nice guitar for the price just don't let GC set it up for you (sorry GC, just the way I feel at this point).
