    That one actually looks really nice.
    As a guy not very familiar with Jacksons guitarline is that a US or an import?

      Nevermind it only took me 5 seconds to search the answer myself......

    Yeah, somehow that finish and the chrome work together to make the pointy look alright. Nice specs on the guitar. I like the fact that it has a master volume and two tones, rather than the other way around (which is more common with hums and 3-ways).

      Looks like fun, til someone loses an eye.

    But this one can also function as a weapon in case someone breaks into your house!

      It's kind of cool, but the combination of color + shape isn't doing it for me.  I like a lot of V's, but not this one.

      Not hot.

    I don't like V's, but I do like that.  Hot in a '50s Buick kind of way.

      I like the color and the inlays.But as a whole, not. I don't care for the asymetrical V.

    No problem! I'm enjoying hunting down interesting guitars.

    I feel the same about this one. The aesthetics somehow work for me, and the specs are similar to what I'd like.

      The world would be a safer place without pointy guitars.  I'll pass.

      Two types of people you don't want to argue with.... geniuses and fools. .....it helps if you can tell the difference.
