humm ..... seems my pet peeve is catching on gang
I definitely think it's bad form on moderately expensive/expensive guitars that they aren't shipped with at least a basic case as part of the deal. Cardboard isn't the most protective material for sending a costly and delicate instrument in and it doesn't say 'quality' to the consumer.
Conjaculations Jock, glad you love her and am sure you’ll enjoy!
My Gretsch G5120 & BC Rich Warbeast NJ Deluxe were shipped in cardboard packages. G5120 i got from GC the BC Rich from Amazon. I had no problems with them. But yea, wish they came with cases since, you know, they're like, another $100+.
They are not my thing, but they are great guitars. Aren't they a subsidary of FMI?
I do believe they are under the Fender umbrella now.
I have to say that I wouldn't mind paying a bit more in order to get a case made specifically for the guitar included. When I have bought guitars in the past I have typically ordered a suitable case at the same time, if one isn't already included and asked for the guitar to be shipped in the case.
Love the color! Congrats
I haven't played a Jackson in like,30 years,played lots of Charvel,Kramer and Ibanez but Jackson was thin on the ground over here back in the day.
Had to smile when i saw at NAMM this year that Charvel were doing a 40th Anniversary run .
And Kramer are bringing some stuff back from the 80's again too.
Kinda brought back memories from my teen metal days.
I've never owned a shredder though,i never had the chops for shredding,i had a better feel for bass when i played metal!
I could never afford Jackson or Charvel in the 80's. I remember entering a competition from the Megadeth 'So Far So Good So What' album to try and win a Charvel but I didn't win it. My main guitars back then were an Ibanez Rocket Roll II flying 'V' (Cheesey name, awkward shaped guitar to play sitting down but it was a joy to pick on) and a Fernandes "The Function" with sustainer. Wish I hadn't sold both those guitars and they seem to be very rare now. If anyone ever comes across an Ibanez 'V' in an Ibanez case with a Stray Cat head and the word 'Rockabilly' on the case then that's my old Axe
I believe you’re right. I remember years back that Dave Mustaine from Megadeth was in talks on buying Jackson but it turned sour some how. Afterwhich is when I believe FMIC picked them up and Dave signed with Dean guitars. I’m not sure if it’s 100% owned by FMIC, or something similar like they do distributing Gretsch while someone else like Fred Gretsch is somehow still in the picture.
Yeah, Mustaine was all set to buy and the deal was just waiting for signatures and then Fender came and ruined the deal and Jackson signed with them. He was pissed. He sold all of his Jackson guitars. First he signed with ESP for a couple years, then he moved over to DEAN. Now DEAN has a huge line of Mustaine sigs second only to all the offerings they have for Dimebag Darrel's Razorback line. I believe its the same type of deal they have with Gretsch.
Mustaine has stated that he'd go back to Jackson if they ever buried the hatchet with him. Ha. like he'd ever let them forget it.
