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
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)
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 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.
