NGD: Jackson SLSMG Eerie Dess Swirl















It was my dream guitar for a couple of years. Original EMG set was replaced with a pair of DiMarzio Breeds, now it has more tonal variety. The nicest guitar I've ever had without a doubt, and not only it looks beautiful, it plays equally well. Build quality is top notch, as on almost any MIJ guitar I've had. SLSMG stands for super lightweight Soloist - despite the name, it's not a light guitar, at 3,9 kg, it's a bit heavier than the RGs I had recently (RG560, RG7620). Overall, I'm absolutely happy with it. SLSMGs are of great value, you can get a black one on 'bay for around $400, an absolute bargain.

Happy NGD, you got an awesome example of one of those! Always Loved the SLSMG, and I've always thought the Eerie Dess finish is mega-rad. That particular Jackson headstock is my favorite as well.

Nice! I've always loved the DS finish, and kick myself for not picking one up on a DK1 years ago

Thanks, guys. Eerie Dess is one of the nicest non-custom finishes indeed. It would be cool to have a poker of ED guitars, as the Rhoads, the Kelly, the Dinky and the Soloist were all available with this finish.

That finish is amazing. I think the only other Jackson I've seen that's near as good or better is the Nebula USA Select. Happy NGD

I have an SL2H with the ED paint. Once I have enough posts, I'll put up a pic.

SWEET! I've always loved that paint job! I'm gonna have to experiment and try and match it! Could look cool in other complementing colors like reds, oranges, yellows...

Very cool. I've never seen any closeups of that finish. The small pics I've seen of it don't do it justice.

Whoa!

I'm usually not a huge fan of string-through's or painted necks...yet that guitar is badass enough to over-rule both of those issues! I'd play that guy until I wear the back of the neck down to the truss rod cavity, haha!

Enjoy man!

Nice Jackson and nice pictures...
Love that finish and the headstock...The Breed is a nice move. They going to give you the warms needed cause thats a neck thro guitar which gives lots of highs...
Looks like an Ebony board you got there...Verry nice Indeed...
Mind you there arent many around like yours..Let alone regular finish..Looks like they made them for a couple of years and stopped. I gotta admit, im drawn by it..She is a beauty, And i have over 30 guitars in my collection..lol..
Found a couple of Ebay but not with your finish..One was cobalt blue though..
