"The best cheap 8-string guitar, imo!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this for my fiance so he'll be doing the review of it. I own a Jackson JS22-7 Dinky and was really impressed with the quality for being such a cheap guitar. My fiancee knew I wanted an 8-string so when she saw this, she knew it was a no-brainer and got it for me. Once again, I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this guitar for being so cheap. Everything on it is really solid and feels like a more expensive guitar. Even the stock pickups are pretty good. Out of all entry level models of guitars I've ever played, Jackson makes the best pickups, in my opinion. That could just be preference, though, as I like high output pickups because I mostly playing metal/progressive metal/djent style music. Of course, I ended up swapping then out for a set of Seymour Duncan Holcomb Alpha/Omega 8-string pups because I knew I wanted those anyway. That being said, if you can't afford to get new pickups for it right away, you should still be pretty happy with the sound right out of the box. With a good amp, you can still dial in a pretty good tone. The only other things I will probably change later on down the road will be the nut and tuners. They aren't bad by any means. I just want to upgrade them, which is the same thing I bought the JS22-7 Dinky for. I know a lot of people don't care for a 26.5" scale length on an 8-string, but I love it. I put some heavier gauge strings on it, set it up and tuned it to F standard with no issues whatsoever. I've never tried a Jackson before this year and now read more I own two of their guitars, if that tells you anything. They've got a new fan for life!
