The prices now quoted on the import Jackson Pro line are very much in the bracket of American-made models from other companies- $849-$999 is rather steep, given their origin outside the US. However, with the quilt maple, fancy paint job, fancy metalwork and all, even the prices of import guitars go up.
What I want is something basic- neck-through body in alder/maple (mahogany/mahogany and mahogany/maple will also do), baked maple/ebony/Madagascar Rosewood fretboard, basic inlays, string-through hardtail, chrome hardware and Seymour Duncan pickups. The X-series, for me, is less than basic- it's basswood (low-end guitar material) and the quality of woods not good enough, nor are the fit and finish.
My choice of an entry-level American Soloist is like the SLXT, in alder/mahogany and with Seymour Duncan humbuckers. I can pay $600-750 for one. I can get an American Gibson Les Paul with that money, but I'd prefer a Jackson Soloist.
EDIT: In the 1980s, when super-strats were very popular, Jackson had two lines in the United States itself- the Custom line and the Student line. I'd like a revival of the Student line, in some form.
