Beautiful guitar that lets you feel the music
Retribution, 05.01.2019
This guitar is made of Mahogany. That means it's weighs just the fraction of the weight that most USA custom guitars weigh. Your shoulders won't ache after an hour of playing. Also, Mahogany is a beautifully sounding wood. Combined with the neck-through construction and the floating bridge, EVEN AT VERY LOW ACTION, I feel every note I play through my stomach and my chest where the guitar touches my body. That's something you don't get from stocky, crude guitars.

The inlayless ebony fretboard is BEAUTIFUL. I have always played shark inlays by Jackson, and I had my doubts that I couldn't find my reference fret while playing. Nope. The bars on the neck make sure that you never have to look at your fret inlays. You also don't bend the guitar towards yourself to see the frets, saving your wrist some effort.

The tone knob was definitely useless for metal. I'm glad SL2 doesn't have it. It always interfered with my picking in my other Jacksons. The hardware feels well. There are little imperfections with the finish, but at least the frets are well sandpapered and they don't try to slice you up when your hand slides across the neck. Very comfortable and smooth.

The finished neck feels so nice to move along. I prefer it to oiled necks. And of course you have the compound radius. In my opinion, Ibanez (flat radius), and Les Pauls (round radius) all feel like pieces of crude wood in my hands. Jackson necks are where my playing gets faster and comfortable.

One con I'm unhappy about is the jack input. It's embedded in the body with an angle which made it impossible to use a wireless transmitter instead of an instrument cable; it was just too deep for the transmitter's jack.

Also another complaint would be that, I asked Thomann to set the action as low as possible WITHOUT FRET BUZZ. Their PLEC machine must be broke because when I received the guitar I couldn't play beyond fret 14 at all. Just buzz and no sound.

Reminiscent of my Jackson SLSMG Snow White, beautiful guitar. Beautiful reverse headstock. The piano black shines beautifully when cleaned. And the PICKUPS ARE CRAZY GOOD! Don't want to use 81-85s anymore!
