    I like that andreu rhoads, especially because it brings back poplar.

      the pink SL1X is pretty interesting in that from the pics its a top mounted floyd. Specs all say recessed but we'll see.

          I see some neat stuff and some unique options that I'll be adding to my database within a few days. I like the Dinky Reverse with the Dimarzios. I also like seeing Gotoh hardware on some. It's too bad the crackle finishes aren't on the MIJ stuff. Also worryingly, aren't new MIJ stuff the cost of what MIA stuff used to be? What plant exactly is doing the MIJ stuff? It's not the original one right?

            Yeah, crackle models are usually Chinese. As far as I can tell, the plant making the MIJ guitars is the...Fender Japan plant. They have their own now, well, have had for a couple of years.

              I was shocked to see the Crackles in the stores after all these years. Next observation was; Can't believe how expensive those Crackle models are (for a Chinese guitar). But I guess Chinese quality is better these days (sorry I've been away from this stuff for a while)?

                The one I like the most is the shattered mirror Kelly.

                The one that is messing with my mind the most is the Rickenbacker styled Concert Bass. I can understand since Rickenbacker had triangular inlays before Jackson existed, let alone made sharkfin inlays their thing. Really cheeky.

                I'd go with one of the new Jackson MJ models over an E-II, but ESP USA is very tempting compared to Jackson USA after all the price hikes.

                  thanks for pointing that out. when I was thumbing through the pages I guess I must have just thought it was a white kelly from the low-res image, but that's actually pretty cool. hope to see that "finish" on some other models! (ahem, "warrior") I see they applied the mirroring to the sl3r, but it's not shattered

                    I guess at least they are true to the vintage styles. Compared to BC Rich which seems keen on putting gaudy fucking abalone on everything these days which was never present "back in the day".

                      I went back through them again today. I can't believe I missed the fact that there's now an import SL1 with a weird explanation for that name at that. Also notice that several X Series now have Jackson brand pickup instead of the Duncan Designs. That concert bass is just ugly. Some of the camo finishes are a bit tacky but sometimes they work.
