It happened again.....again!!!

Postby Genebaby » Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:23 pm

So I get alerts from Ebay about what is up in the Charvel Jackson world and sometimes I just can't resist. This happened with the Flame Up Charvel that I really love. It came with a pickup upgrade I really liked, so I put the same one in the red Charvel I bought afterwards.

Recently an import model of the Adrian Smith Jackson popped up, the SDX.

It had some pretty groovy upgrades itself:
  • Iron Gear Hot Slag pickups (I had just heard about these a few weeks before so it was cool to see these in there)

    Master Push/Pull Middle Tone Control Potentiometer for coil-splitting in all pickup positions

    5-Way Super-switch

    Gotoh Floyd (super keen to try this out as I hear very, very good things about this version of the Floyd. It's probably the only one besides the German made ones I would be happy with)

    Brass Trem-Stopper

    Noiseless Trem Springs

    Custom H-S-H Pickguard 3-Ply White/Black/White (the SDX usually comes in a H-S-S combo, so I really dug the fact that this had a humbucker in the neck now)
It's been well setup and looked after and was going for too much of a song for me to resist, with all the cool stuff that had been done to it. Plus I have always loved the look of the big Jackson logo on a strathead. Dream fulfilled!

It's currently living at Dannii's house, as it was very close by, so he graciously picked it up for me. I plan to bring it home when I see GnR on the 10th of February, there is no real rush to have this guitar, ha ha.

Once I get it home and bond with it a little I will look out for a suitable case, as it comes with a gig bag.
