NGD: Custom Shop Jackson V --- 30" MONSTER SCALE!!!

This guitar (bass?) is awesome! A friend of mine used to be endorsed by Jackson, and since that band broke up it was just sitting at his house...so I offered to scoop it of him and....now its mine

Anyways, it's built immaculately, just like something you would expect from the guys at Jackson. The flame maple top is unreal, and the birdseye is gorgeous as well.

The 30" scale length takes some getting used to but the clarity is unbeatable. I can clearly make out chords even tuned down a full octave from standard E.

Re: NGD: Custom Shop Jackson V --- 30" MONSTER SCALE!!!

That's a great one.

While I enjoyed the somewhat long scale 26.5" inch Ibanez RGD, something with a longer scale could easily reach into bass territory and make a dedicated bass player unnecessary.

It's at least an answer to those who don't want to venture all the way into the sonic territory and musical difficulty of an 8 string like the RG8. I saw some Tosin written music he did in standard notation and it just lost me. It can be easier for non-trained hacks to get up to speed on super long scale guitar and transfer knowledge directly if it's tuned E to E but just down from regular guitar. You can't comfortably go E to E lowered and octave on a 26.5 or 27" inch scale neck without wobbly strings.

Oh man, that's gorgeous. What do you have it tuned to, and what are the pickups?

That's pretty awesome - is the body lacewood by any chance?

Love the fact that it's rear routed - wish the regular Rhoads models are thus.
