OMG!I LOVE that!!
Hey guys, i'm about to make a trade and as far as i am convinced to do it, but still i want to know your opinion: My Japanese Jackson SL3 soloist for a Schecter Blackjack SLS.
Yeah, neck through, flame maple veneer, thiner neck and pickups may seem to be slightly better over set neck, plain top and SD Blackout (this last one si more personal choice) but what kinda bothers me from my guitar is the FLOYD ROSE. I'm a guy who constantly changes the guitar tuning and i NEED a fixed bridge guitar. What are your thoughts?
Block the Floyd.
That said, if the fixed bridge is key to you enjoying your guitar and playing, don't hesitate to go with the Schecter. Hope this helps.
The SLS has a really comfy neck it does have a narrower neck. In terms of playability it is on par with the Jackson ones just narrower and rounder. The one I had played extremelly well and was really resonant. It slayed with the Blackouts and it slayed with the EMG57/66 I had it with. However the positives of a fixed bridge like the TOM and trying different tunings is only valid if you don't do extreme tuning and gauge changes. If you go From E standard to drop D or D standard to drop C or E standard to E flat without changing strings it is super handy even though the strings will feel a bit looser and vibrate more causing a bit of buzz. Intonation and trussrod adjustment you can get away with.
If you however play inE standard and change the tuning to C or B for a few months and back again then you still need to do trussrod adjustments, intonation adjustments which are admittedly easier on a fixed bridge. The only drawback with changing gauges back and forth is the nut slot sizes. For the 46 gauge E it was ok. The 60 I tried for B didn't fit the slot however. The question is how well the nut performs if you widen it and decide to go thinner strings again.
Just did the trade, now i am on my way back home with it!
I was told Schecter necks were like baseball bats (lol), thick and uncomfy but thats b*llshit. Neck its actually very similar to my jackie, a little bit more round, i may even like it more. Feels so good to my hands.
And about the bridge, i am constantly floating between E, D and Drop C, so i guess i will be able to do these tuning changes without touching the truss rod. In the worst case, i could keep it in D-Drop C and use my 8 stringer for standard tuning.
Thank you my guys @Edika @Kyle Jordan
Bought myself few days ago Style 2 HH HT in Chlorine burst. Absolutely love this thing, couldn't be happier with it. Owned a Pro Mod San Dimas in white when they first came out. I sold it quite quickly because I didn't get used to the floyd at all. Have missed it all these years, though. Now I'm happy again.
My Two Jackson 1991 Warrior Pros
Nooooooooo ! are those stars ?
I saw one on a French forum last year and didn't have time to buy it was already gone (white one)
if one day you wanna get rid of one...
The 90’s professionals are quality-wise what most people want Jackson to release around the $1600-1800 range.
And it’s sadly never going to happen.
would buy the white one instantly
already on it, take the black one, please
Those warrior professionals were 24.75in right? Pretty much my perfect guitar other than not being Dinky shaped
Going to check out an old DK2M pro this weekend at an absurd price. If things work out I'll be on Japanese Jackson Pro #3
Yes they are indeed 24.75.
I better hide these somewhere safe!!
I'm going to get busted at work for porn thanks to you That white one is gorgeous!
