I bought this
guitar new in 1987. That's me above, playing it with FEED
back in '97. In '88 I had the stock Jackson pickups replaced
with EMGs, an 81 in the bridge and a 60 in the neck. The
tremelo is the original Kahler which I prefer over the Floyd
Rose. Although the guitar seems to be black, it is actually
a very dark "black cherry" which can be seen when the light
hits it just right. This is a neck-through design with
24 frets and a rosewood fretboard.
Of all my guitars
this one is my favorite. I have spent more hours with
this guitar than I have with most of my friends.
Update: This guitar
now has EMG 89's in both positions.
is the most commonly searched for item on my site. A lot of
people are looking for informaion about these guitars apparently.
So why do they still consistenly sell for $300.00 - 400.00???
Damned if I know. They are sweet!
