"Great value, easy upgrades, nostalgia!"

Dude, this guitar is just straight-up GREAT for those looking for that late 80's/early 90's metal look and feel! You will hear a lot about the Floyd Rose "Special" and how it should be replaced. This is surely a great upgrade, but you can save some money initially by just upgrading the saddle blocks with titanium or naval brass ones from FU-tone.com. You can also upgrade the springs and tremolo arm, etc. Easy upgrades that add strength to the Floyd Rose Special. I may also upgrade the locking nut at some point. Guitar was MINT out of the box and played well. A few minor tweaks made it scream. If you grew up seeing Jackson/Charvel crackle models in the music videos, this is a great guitar for you, even if you're a beginner or intermediate...... this will allow you to learn how to tune a floating tremolo through repetition and ultimately KEEP it in tune. Also, don't forget.... each one of these guitars is unique regarding the crackle paint..... no two guitars are the same due to the way they use compressed air to create the crackle pattern. Your guitar will be UNIQUE and unlike any other! Neck-thru, decent but easily-upgraded hardware, great FAST playing neck, and a unique paintjob. GREAT VALUE. Score it!

"Have to give it 5 stars"

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
I bought this guitar knowing two things might be subpar at this price point. The Floyd Rose Special indeed has very coarse finetuners and they tend to not return to pitch after a year of gigging. I expected the pickups to not be “spectacular “, like my preferred SD pups. I was pleasantly surprised. They kind of sound like Duncan Distortions, which is a good thing. The workmanship and finish of my SLX is superb. Not a blemish or flaw. The guitar plays great. The magic Jackson/Charvel profile recipe is just that. The neckthrough construction is solid as a rock. If you gig regularly, you might want to upgrade the bridge, but I really love this guitar.

"The Crackle is back!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This guitar is amazing! The finish is awesome. Just like it's Charvel sister from the late 80's. The playability, action, sound is 100% metal. I'm so glad Jackson brought back the crackle finish. I waited 4 months for this guitar and it was worth the wait.
