My name is Mark, I live in Woodbridge, VA, (a suburb 15 miles due south of Washington, DC) and a Jackson owner since the mid 90s. I had a Charvel model 3 before that, a friend now owns it, never plays it, and I will be buying it back soon for sentimental reasons.
I will likely be in the market for another "serious" guitar this time next year if everything goes well.
I currently own 4 playable guitars. A Martin DC-1, a one off handbuilt custom Rhoads V copy with an ash body/Kahler tool less tremolo/OBL pickups, a Schecter Hellraiser Solo 6, and a USA KV1 Mustaine sig in charcoal metallic. Come tax time I will be buying back my old Charvel.
I am in a garage/cover band. We play an eclectic mix of everything from Cream to Stone Temple with a little Pink Floyd for good measure.
I am a big Megadeth fan as evidenced by my choice of Jacksons. I wanted a Marty Kelly to go with my Dave V but could not begin to afford it back then. I still want one.
My true desire would be a USA neck thru Kelly without a tremolo, equipped with either blackouts or EMGs.
After playing for over 25 years and owning/playing lots of different guitars my Jackson is like an old friend. It outplays anything and everything I have ever spent any time with. It has been and continues to be the best musical equipment decision I have ever made.
Looking forward to interacting here on the boards and learning all I can. Have a great day everyone.
