Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (94 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Don't let the one guy's bad review sway you away... he doesn't know how to work his amps, pedals, tone or something -- this guit"
Sound: Sounds superb for the money. 1/3 more than the boom boom starter at the grocery store, yet sounds like Metallica. The ONE guy badmouthing the sound out of everyone boasting it doesn't know how to work amps or tone or something. Feature: What more do you need? Ease of Use: The feel is more excellent than I ever imagined. Quality: Tough as nails. Solid and smooth. Nothing needs replacing. Nothing sloppy. Value: I know I made the right decision. Manufacturer Support: I've heard they'll do whatever it takes. The Wow Factor: Fits my whole motif perfectly Overall: I may surprise myself how long it takes to pry it out of my hands... maybe do a graphic or two.
Style of Music: alt. hard rock

Sound: I'd say that out of all the guitars I've ever owned, this one had got to be th most impressive. Sound, playability, and looks are all well me here. I had been wanting to pick up a Kelly for a long time but often shyed away because of the usual Floyd Rose dive bomb tremlo (I've never been able to keep one of those things in tune, no matter what brand of guitar. The day I saw this particular Kelly, my prayers had been answered. It's very basic, simple, and I can go for about 7 songs before she shows any sign of falling out of tune (I'm very abusive on strings) Feature: The stationary string through tremlo, it's simply the best. The pickups are great. I get a very true clean tone, the neck pickup has the most incredible clarity during solos. The clipping I hear during shedding solos is fantastic. And the bridge pickup can get the crunchiest sound with any distortion. I've heard that people have changed the pickups in this particular model to get tones they want. Why? Every tone you need is right here. I got mine in black and it looks absolutly wicked. Ease of Use: If want to adjust anything (I've never had to it can just the way I like it right out of the box), everything is easily accessable. Tuning is a breeze, action height is quiclky adjustable. and the playability- I'll put it this way, I'm coming down from a 7 string to this and I thought it would take me about 2 or 3 weeks to get used to it. Not so. This instrument is so comfortable to play. Quality: First of all, it a Jackson, born and bread right here in the united states. Need I say more? It's truly road worthy with a decent case. Either I'm just a softie, or there is one hell of a coat of paint on this instrument because I've accidentaly bumbed the body against a few things and found NO DENTS OR SCRATCHES. I think this instrument will last for many years to come. Value: I've played instruments ranging from $150 all the way up to $1200. The surrent price of this instrument is an absolute steal! I saw the price and thought maybe it was a typo. but no, it's not just a dream, it's a reality. I've seen guitars with similar hardware and design go for way more. Manufacturer Support: I personaly haven't had to deal with Jackson directly, but I have a few friends who have contacted them about product issues or even just questions and they have found that Jackson is more than eager to be of quality service to the customer. Every time. The Wow Factor: If part of your performance is theatrical, definetly pick this up. I can tell you one thing, this instrument makes me look good, even before I start playing. My wife even says it looks sexy on me! Overall: I already have plans to buy another of this particular model but in another color. I just can't decide if I want the red or the blue. Maybe I'll get both. I've played for 20 years and I can honestly say that I feel that I've found the "soulmate" instrument for me. It was 20 years ago that I saw the video "Free" by Stryper, and it was Michael Sweet's solo that inspired me to pick up a guitar. He was playing a Jackson Kelly in the video! Go figure!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
