    Default My guitars!

    Just taken some photos of all my guitars, so here they are:

    The whole family, from L-R, cheapo Westwood bass, Jackson SL3, Freya strat, Jackson Concept JDR-94, Epiphone Black Beauty, Jackson KE3, Jackson RR3. I likes me Jacksons!



    The SL3. I just changed the middle Hot Rails for an SSL-1, it sounds awesome. JB bridge, SSL-1, Hot Rails neck.



    "Freya" strat. This is an old Marlin thing, which I repainted pink. My baby daughter's name is Freya so I had a decal made up with that in the "Fender" font for the headstock. Duncan Distortion in bridge, Fender USA single coils mid and neck. Although a cheap old pawnshop guitar, it sounds incredible even if it doesn't play as good as the rest of the family.






    Jackson Concept JDR-94. New control knobs and a Bill Lawrence USA 500XL bridge. Incredible metal sound from this thing. And you can't beat a Jackson reverse headstock!



    Epi Black Beauty. You've seen this before. Alnico 2 Pro bridge, Phat Cat middle, 59 neck. Plays and sounds beautiful.



    Jackson KE3. I can't get a good photo of this thing, the colour never shows well. It's a nice indigo colour. JB bridge, 59 neck. Black pearl pickup rings and truss rod cover from Dave at www.fretsonthenet.com
    Reverse sharkfin inlays too. I replaced the chrome hardware for black.





    Jackson RR3. More parts from Dave, red pearl stuff this time. Fitted with Blackouts.




    I just wish I had enough hair left to look cool playing these metal machines.

    Great idea with the Freya Strat... looks good too, but I really like the flamey Jackson!! On a side note, your 3 pick up B.B nearly inspired me to have mine routed and get a Phat cat in the middle!!

    Thanks guys. The SL3 always gets good comments for its looks, and it's also the best player and sounding out the lot. It's easily my no.1, although the Black Beauty isn't far behind. Those two seem to have that little extra mojo compared to the others.

    I've just been downstairs playing along to "Kill Em All" with some of these guitars and the strat played and sounded awesome, I must be getting used to it.

    Hey man!

    Cool photos and great gear.
    And don't sweat it 'bout the hair, just go the "other" way.
    No hair and sunglasses are "Metal" as well, look at Rob Halford or Ralph Scheepers

    Nice gear. The Kelly is nice... I've seen that color in person and it does make for a striking guitar. Those things have such a cool shape.
