that was the move...
Ahh I see, but it is listed as a probable option. I personally like the new USA SL1 in the satin finish. The lack of binding on the fretboard also grew on me. I wish I could afford that right now.

Jackson USA soloist. And I'm a hypocrite too!
i'm in good company then! 👍

This guitar is a straight up killer. Muscle car attitude. I'll dump that noisy neck SC for my YJM fury... and look out!

woah that's good to know! That guitar is $$ and I love Rick's Playing.. but something wasn't clicking with this guitar. It's a beautiful looking guitar, but I dunno... seemed to "fusion-oriented"

I was afraid it wouldn't pair well with my EVH iconic...

I made the right decision with this Jackson.

Yeah man, It felt unbalanced and just uncomfortable. Also didnt really dig its sound....but with the USA soloist...you know exactly what you're getting.

Yeah, i was afraid of dropping $2.5 on a guitar only to not be satisfied.
I've had Charvel USAs and they're great... but those caramelized neck... too much funky spank for me..
