Amazing guitar!

By Deathrocker416

from Nevada

Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

This guitar can only be described in one word. Amazing! My friend got this same guitar and i was jealous after playing it for the first five minutes. The neck is sooo fast, it's unbelievable. The pickups have so much chug in them they smoke emg's. the floyd rose also has a pretty smooth action to it so no explanation needed there. to shorten it all up, it plays better than it looks and its totally worth the cash.

Great Guitar

By M. Peter

from E. Greenwich, Rhode Island

Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

This guitar came into my possession 2 years ago. I got it with a custom paint job (lightning sky), ordering it straight from the Jackson factory. This guitar is great. The neck is so easy to play on, and it produces a great rock and metal sound. Don't let that fool you, though, as it is great for any style. I own a Gibson Les Paul Custom, a Gibson Les Paul Standard and a Jackson Dinky along with this guitar, and I would have to say that this guitar is tied for my favorite with the Gibson Les Paul Custom.

Made for MetalGods

By Robert J. Garcia

from pueblo

Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

This has to be one of the best made Jackson guitars of our time. I've been playing nothing but thrash metal like Megadeth and Metallica, and this guitar sounds the best to that genre of music. the pickups and whammy are the best i've ever seen. Also,one of the greatest guitarists played this brand of guitar "Marty Friedman". So buy this well constructed guitar made by the MetalGods themselves.

Exeptional Instrument

By Vrozzi

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Jackson KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar:

Very fine instrument which you start value from the very first second you feel it in your hands. Very expensive but worth the money paid. I am now happy and proud owner of KE2 Kelly. It'l steal a lot of time of yours to play with your amp and pedals if any. Sound possibilities are endless.
