Re: My 2 cents on Jackson trems
I have owned lots of guitars and some of the best shredders on the planet including a JEM and several Jacksons (PRS, San Dimas Charvel, Gibson Original Firebird, SG, Strat, Hamer Californian, Robin Medley, etc....)
You have to get a good guitar with good parts. I have found some decent cheaper Korean models (I have a fairly good Hamer Vector import).
I had a Jackson SL1 that had the cheaper trem and pick ups and I did not like it. However their USA models kick some serious ass. And their custom shops are nothing less than spectacular.
But every manufacturer has their bloopers.
And I have yet to find an import that is as good as its American made counterpart.
