Hello guys! I'm buying a fairly nice Jackson from a good friend of mine for $300 and I would like to know what model it is so that I can look further into it. Yes, I do have a picture. Only one though. This thing looks very similar to an SL1 but I know that it's not.
Sparkley black finish
Professional stamped on the headstock
Serial# J000356 (the last three numbers are wrong but it was something close to that)
HSS pickup configuration w/ EMG 81, SA, SA
3 knobs, one pickup switch (not sure what the knobs do, it's not wired up)
Ebony or Ebonized Rosewood fretboard
MoP Sharktooth inlays
White/cream neck binding
Hard to see, I know. But I assure you, there IS three knobs.
My main questions are
1. Model name?
2. Is it Japanese?
3. What bridge is in it? (Yes, the bridge is the stock one. Has "Jackson" stamped on it)
4. Does it suck?
