    I hear ya on that one, that's the way I roll too.
    "Life's too short not to enjoy great tone."

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    I have a Jackson JS22.

    I saw it at a pawnshop for $89 including Jim Dunlop strap locks, strap and a good gig bag. I talked them down 10% more and it was mine. I had briefly considered a Jackson in the mid '80s but regained my sanity.

    I had tried a few out at the local music store, perhaps even this one, and was impressed on how nice a guitar it was for a made in India guitar the price of a Squier Standard. It is surprisingly well made and a little work on the nut improved the tuning stability for whammy gymnastics. The openfaced 'buckers are very traditional in sound but add in a gain pedal and it can wail.

    It is a bizzare guit for a 63 year old guy who plays jazz, bluegrass and folk and blues. I've actually used it at a gospel gig once. Nothing like a reverse headstock pointy guitar for that!

    I'm switching it over to a Floyd Rose-licensed trem with a locking nut and some day may go for more aggressive pickups.

    Nice article on Charvel in a recent issue of Vintage guitar. It was a nice read and being an 80's Charvel guy it brought back some nice memories.
