I have had the Fury, a couple months or so, give or take a bit. This is a solid, well-built guitar. I have a thing for white guitars, to begin with, so this was a no-brainer for me. Additionally, I like an explorer shaped guitar.I am no stranger to EMG Active Pickups, so the 81 and 60 are or were not strangers. In terms of which would be better in the neck, for some it would be a toss-up, a 60 or an 85. I like both, actually, but in this instance, the 60 has proven itself to be a solid asset, for our music. That being, Celtic Metal.The fit and finish right out of the box was superb, just a little tuning, and minor tweaks. Playability is superb and given its neck-through body constructed, you can feel the solidness and stability throughout. Add to this string-through body, and you've immense sustain for days. It is a metal guitar, that's a given. In my humble opinion, it is far better looking than an Explorer.The neck's fretboard is solid, the frets are well dressed, so no tweaking there. Tuning stability is rock solid, compared to some of the guitars I've owned. Controls are well laid out, comfortable. EMG pickups are pretty constant in sound and tone, across the board, with guitars. You may find a minor difference between tone woods, but not enough to warrant concern. It depends on your flavor of music, as well as being subjective.I have played a couple shows with it, thus far, to which it has stood up to everything I've given it. I play aggressively and hard... the Fury handled read more it with ease and asked for more. The Explorer shape can be or seem, to some, a bit much. However, it is well balanced and comfortable whether standing or sitting, when playing.Given the quality of the Fury, it is more than well worth its price. Jackson has another winner.

The sound quality is phenomenal, but then, we're talking about EMGs in a neck-through mahogany body. The sound I am able to produce is ideal for our music. Sustain for days due to the neck-through and string-through body construction, which is tantamount. Depending on what your music is and the sound you're trying to achieve, one might experiment with rolling amp volume down and pedal volume up, or vise-versa, The EMGs scream to begin with, anyway.

The Fury is all but a perfect combination of tone wood, pickups and with the string-through body bridge combination. Locking tuners would be a nice touch, but that is something one can always change.

Ease of Use
Getting a decent sound is simple and easy. You simply dial in your pedals, (if you use them), dial in your amp, (across the channels if you have multiple channels, as do I with a Marshall JVM410), tune the guitar and let it rip.

The Fury is solid, rock solid. Workmanship is superlative. As I mentioned above, locking tuners would be a nice touch. However, not having to polish frets, dress the ends of the frets, is such a nice thing. I see years upon years of trouble-free playing.

This guitar is more than well-worth its price, in my opinion. There are other products out there, similar to this guitar, with less quality, priced comparably, that would not hold a candle to the Fury, (in my humble opinion).

Manufacturer Support
As of yet, there has been no need to interact with Jackson Support.

The Wow Factor
I have had numerous compliments on the guitar. But, a white guitar makes its own statement, without much effort, especially when it has black or gold hardware. You will stand out, on stage.

Musical Background:
I've played about 50 years, as a session musician and in bands, primarily Rock, Hard Rock, Celtic Rock and Celtic Metal.

Musical Style:
I primarily play Celtic Metal; however, I do play some acoustic material. We're an all-original material Band.
