    What do you think of this Jackson Custom Shop Warrior? I took this in on a trade. It is actually from NAMM 2008. It is untouched. The bag that has the warranty card and wammy bar was never opened. When the original owner told me it was a Tobacco Burst Warrior I almost said no. I took a chance and had him send it to me to look at. Well I was blown away. So much so that I am keeping this one for myself. I was picturing a maple quilt or flame top. I'm glad it is just plane alder. I don't think it would be as cool with a maple top. What do you think?

    Should I re-order this one? Would someone buy it or is this just an oddball that I should stay away from and that I should have my head examined for liking?

    Any Thoughts?

    You might want to put this in the USA or General section, as members can't really reply in the dealers' section.

    Cool. I can't believe no one has been able to see my pics until now. That sucks. Apparently the admin settings were not set right on my account.

    If this thing was available 5-6 months ago, I would have bought it myself.

    I'm not really digging it myself. I don't like "metal" guitars with traditional paint schemes such as sunbursts. I don't like Soloists and Dinkies with trans finishes at all. I like graphic Warriors the most - especially Warbirds.

    This one has sort of an identity crisis. I'm a warrior, I kick ass! But, I'm a tobacco burst...I'm a gentlemen! But wait, reverse headstock, so I'm a little freaky deaky!

    Meh. Being a non-figured top and in tobacco burst, it does have a slight Necronomicon/covered in burnt flesh kinda look. A little. Kinda. If you tilt your head and squint.

    I like it; if I wasn't so fixated on a V and already have two warriors, I'd be tempted myself.

    Thanks for the feedback. This guitar does have an identity crisis. I think this guitar would have sucked with a figured top but I don't know I not a fan of burst finishes on metal guitars but this guitar has its hooks in me.

    (That would be for the re-order).

    I love tobacco bursts and warriors.

    If you were to order it, perhaps get it in Ash? I love trans finishes on Ash, because the grain looks so cool.

    I have a Anderson tele with a ash in that color, looks very nice.

    Yes, my 60th strat is ash with a similar burst. As is the '79, except it is in what is now called trans wine. Both are solid hunks of ash.

    Ash is just too cool. Sounds unique too. Play an Alder and Ash guitar side by side, they are not as similar as everyone thinks they are. have very different characters.

    I like flamed and quilted tops, but something about an unfigured piece of Mahogany or Alder that just screams class with a burst finish and a nice natural woodgrain showing thru. Wouldn't have my KV2T (Burnt Cherry Burst - which looks quite different in diffrent lightings) any other way.



    Transitioning from full-time guitarist part time vocalist in a cover band to a Full time vocalist/frontman part time guitarist in an all original band....it's been a while but this could get NASTY!

    I think that might be the ONLY warrior I have ever liked. EVER. If it were a regular headstock, it would seal the deal for me.

    sorry i know this thread if a few months old, but i really like that guitar and honestly if I didn't already have a WR1 CS i was thinking about, that one would be high on the GAS list. I for one love the burst on it.
