    Default Jackson Discussion Initiation


    Jackson has a special place in my heart. Growing up in the 80's, Charvel and Jackson USA guitars were top of the heap. I graduated from my first guitar, which was a Aria Pro II, to a Jackson USA strat in 1987. It was a big deal! I worked and saved until I could buy a $1200 guitar at 20 years old. They had just changed the USA strats from Charvel to Jackson when I ordered mine. They had changed their marketing scheme to having Charvel being all Japanese models and newer, cheaper Indonesian stuff. For the short term the Jackson's had original Floyd Rose trems. Shortly thereafter they became Jackson branded trems. I remember my dealer calling Jackson/Charvel for me to try to get the original Floyd Rose and I got it. I still have it. I haven't pulled it out in years but I can never sell it. Now Jackson and Charvel brands are part of the FMIC umbrella. Pretty cool to see the Charvel name brought back to quality products. They had really hit bottom at one point.

    Glad you like 'em, bud! Not my cup of meat, but I do have a mate that still wields his pointy Charvel occasionally. He's always dug them, and he is definitely talented with a Floyd.

    Didn't Jeff Beck play a pink one? Well, at least it's white

    After you up ended the couch, how did you get it to stay hanging like that?

    The hardest part was hangin' the couch on the wall, I bet.

    My guitar hangers look like couches. Beck played a neck-thru Soloist, which I always thought was a strange combination. Mine is an old-fashioned bolt-on strat. I could never get used to the neck-thru for some reason. I have an 80s Charvel like Beck's Jackson Soloist but haven't touched it in 20 years. I have spent more time hanging my couches on the wall.

    I think Fender makes couch hangers. I'm hard at work on my couch potato project.

    Jackson RR1

    I thought this one played great. Obviously felt goofy when you've been holding a Strat-shape for so long. Sold it for the gidas.

    Another one on my wall-mounted couch hanger:



    Another strat variation, baseball bat-huge neck, lots of toys on it.....Sustainer, etc. Sold it after a couple of months.

    Can't remember exactly when I had this one. I'm trying to judge by the carpet in the pic. I used "carpet hangers" back in this era. Must be early 2000's. USA made DK1. Probably should have kept it and sold it now as it has increased in value. I probably sold it for a loss. That's the way I roll.
