Swift, deadly and affordable, Jackson JS Series guitars take an epic leap forward, making it easier than ever to get classic Jackson tone, looks and playability without breaking the bank.

The JS Series Dinky(TM) JS30 features a poplar body and a bolt-on maple speed neck with graphite reinforcement for rock-solid stability. Hosting 22 jumbo frets pearloid sharkfin inlays, the flat 12" radius amaranth fingerboard allows for precise chording and tackles bends for articulate lead playing.

A pair of Jackson high-output humbucking pickups with ceramic magnets cranks out clear tone with plenty of girth. The neck position delivers bright highs while the bridge adds plenty of crunchy distortion that can be shaped with a three-way toggle switch and single volume and tone controls.

Offering more for less, the JS30 features a stylish Natural Spalted Maple finish. Other features include a Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock, slick chrome hardware including the synchronized fulcrum tremolo bridge, die-cast tuners and standard strap buttons.

Beautiful guitar, well-priced, fast neck, solid FR tremolo...but disappointingly weak pick-ups. (My Gibson SG's pups at half gain were louder than the JS30's "high output" puts at full gain.) Pity.

Well-priced; looks great; seems very well made; was well set up; the smooth, slim neck was easy to play; and moderate use of the FR didn't send it out of tune. Unfortunately the "high output" pickups were surprisingly weak. My Gibson SG with its gain at 4/10 was louder and crunchier than the JS30 with its gain maxed out. So back to L&M it went. Pity.

So much to love about this guitar: The look, the build quality, the overall set-up, the playability and the price. Unfortunately, the "high output" pick-ups were surprisingly weak, even with the guitar at full gain. (The pups on my Gibson SG at 4/10ths gain were noticeably louder and crunchier.) And, so, back to L&M it went.

The sale price on this guitar was too good to pass up. Aside from one sharp fret-end, the guitar itself seemed very well-made. The set-up was good, the neck was slim and fast and the FR seemed to hold tune. The deal-killer for me and the reason I returned it was the pickups: They were surprisingly weak - both noticeably weaker than the humbuckers on my Gibson SG, and nowhere near what I was expecting from "high-output" pups. Pity.
