  • New guitar or no?

    Hi everyone.I was wondering if anyone has experience with entry level jackson js-1 dinky guitar.Thats what i have now.I have only been playing for 3 months or so.I like to play heavier stuff(drop d and drop c).What would be a good upgrade to my guitar?Im considering schecter damien 6 or jackson dxmg ot maybe an ibanez rg series.Or should i stick with my jackson and upgrade to emg pickups>What do you think?

            For that amount get an Ibanez. My little brothers cheapy played great right out of the box.
            Great Deals

              Ok.So it wouldnt be worth putting better pickups in my jackson because its a very basic model?By the way i can also get a Dinky dxmgt with EMG-HZ for 200 bucks used.And from what i checked thats the price you would pay for the set of emg's alone.

                Keep playing your Jackson, take your time and look around if you really want a better guitar. Use your own judgment and if you find one you really like and will be happy with, get it.

                  My first guitar was a cheapo Ibanez and it was really nice for the time I had it. I didnt upgrade until about a year in. I'd wait to upgrade until you see your commited to playing.

                    I agree.I just get a little disappointed when i compare my guitar to others and realize how much better it could sound

                          I agree, stick with what you have for now... but that's a pretty good price for a pretty nice Ibanez (model-wise)...

                              Well, if you have the $$ to grab it, and if you feel it will help you put in more practice time, then it may be a great investment. You can probably sell it later for what he is asking for it.

                              Enjoying your guitar is one factor in consistent practice.

                              If money is tight, stop and take a breath. Ask yourself if that is THE guitar for now. If not, do more research, learn all you can, play a bunch of different guitars and save your money to buy the one you really want.
