Jackson JS32T Kelly Electric Guitar (Viola Burst)
Jackson's JS series has for a long time been the go to line for guitarists who want to get great high speed metal tones but on a tight budget. Now the JS32T Kelly is better than ever with hot hardware and some new design features that make it just a much better experience.
Originally designed in the 1980's the Kelly was made specifically for the guitarist of Australian Metal band Heaven...turns out that he wasn't the best draw for a new model. But when Marty Friedman started using one a lot in the 90's it picked up popularity and the Jackson Kelly as we know it today became a go to in the world of metal.
Using a Poplar body bolted on to a string 1 piece Maple speed neck with graphite reinforcement this guitar is strong enough to take years of playing and sound great while doing it.
The key to a great playing guitar is a well crafted neck. Depending on the style you play you will want different things. If you want to play blues, rock or jazz styles then a larger, smooth neck will feel great but if you want to play high speed, all out, shredtastic metal then the JS32T Kelly has the slim, fast neck that will suit what you want to play.
This pickups in this guitar have been designed by Jackson to offer the highest amount of gain possible without making it quite a bit more expensive. These work really well with high gain sounds on your amp for metal, hard rock, punk and similar styles.
