    Well I have been wanting one of these for a very long time and specifically in this color. This trans blue burst almost never pops up for sale unless its a custom shop model and then they want too much $$. The seller described the guitar as 'excellent' but it does have an undisclosed chip in the paint near the trem cavity cover the size of my pinky nail. Yeah I was pissed when I discovered it. Other than that it is a super nice guitar, zero fret wear, SD JB bridge & 59 neck -sounds awesome! Ebony board, real mother of pearl inlays and logo, alder body, quartersawn eastern hard rock maple neck-thru-body, genuine Floyd you can't get better specs really. The action is ridiculous low, might have to raise it a bit. Its a 2004 SL-2H btw.

    What I love about US Jackson guitars is that they feel like glass. Due to the painting i think

    That thing looks like a monster! I love those guitars. I've been in a tug of war between a Soloist and an Explorer for a while.
    Nice find!

    Allen wrenches that adjust the Floyd.

    Do these guitars have real maple tops?

    According to the folks over on the JCF board, the USA Select production guitars (alder body with maple neck) with flame tops have a thin veneer. The Custom Select guitars - flame or quilt - have a 1/8" top.

    I like the black vignette around the edge. I have a blue soloist myself similar to yours but mine's got a heavy quilt to it. Great guitars, very playable. Congrats!!!
