*HTF do we post pics now? I cant make PB work..

Stumbled on a gem when I visited an old haunt today. First run Adrian Smith. Indian made- not indonesian. Maple board. Off color green with a flip-flop (pink/blue) clear. Gold Floyd Special & HW. H/S/S DMZ super dist & 2 singles I haven’t checked yet (all green- mtd in a black strat pickguard). I’ve no clue what the body is- but this pig’s HEAVY, & has a bad ass angry growl when you hit the minor cords.. Me thinks maybe maple.

The jumbo’s look nearly unplayed, & the back of the neck is skunk striped, & feels unfinished (I’m gonna oil it since it isn’t cleared). OHSC is a Black plastic/ “Jackson” embossed/locking with the exact same inside as my USA HSS Strat fender case. New gold dunlop locks & a black&white “Parental Advisory Explicit Content” 2” nylon strap that seemed fitting enough...

Brought it home for the night. Next week it goes in for new 10s, setup, electronics cleaning, big brass block, & I saw a fret I didn’t like...

All for $450.

Looks good. :thumbs
Shame they don't still do it in that colour. The skunk stripe neck looks classier than the current ones too.
It's pretty much a Jackson Pacer Deluxe!

Yeah- I’m kinda bewildered by it..

I can’t make heads or tails of it yet. It’s way heavier than it should be. Also- I’ve been searching forums & the Jackson page, but I can’t find any info on this color either. According to the Jackson site serial decoder it’s a 2012, made in India by Harmony. It’s supposed to be a white basswood body- but this is too heavy for basswood. I’m gonna weigh the guitar tomorrow, but it’s just slightly lighter than my Gibson LP custom was: meaning this is a pig.

It’s also supposed to be black hardware- but this is all gold... The shop I bought it at is has been around forever, and this came from a pile of stock the owner had tucked away- but I’m just stumped...

Killer axe tho. Too bad the setup is complete vomit- their tech is gonna hate me... dielaughing

Courtney Cox has a green Jackson, I think it's custom though:

It certainly looks killer :hit

More likely than not it could well be a mutt, body & neck probs never started out life as a pair & the gold hardware is deffo someone's personal choice as are the pups :thumbs

But the total package looks right & if it plays & sounds great then that is one sweet find, great buy at the price too :headbang
