If I didn't already buy the matte black with floyd rose for $199 a couple months ago, I'd probably get this.

Finishing isn't great, but it's good enough for a $200 guitar. The pickups are well regarded at this price range as they are actually usable compared to something like low end Harley Bentons. The neck is very comfortable to me. I had to warranty one for a defective bridge pickup. Fender replaced it in 2 weeks, but I had to take it to a music store. The second one I got had a little rough finish on the neck so I sanded it a little with some 1000 grit sandpaper to get it slick. The fingerboard comes dry and needed a little mineral oil which made it way better looking.

Most importantly it plays very well. It's crazy that you can get such a functional instrument at this price.

Probably just "Jackson Series".

According to the listing it's short for JS32Q DKA HT.

I think I saw some Breaking Benjamin songs in drop a but I haven't tried to figure out that tuning yet. Can't wait

I grabbed the green quilt one a month or two ago. It's alright. I really like Jackson necks when the frets aren't razor blades. Only real complaint on this was the pickups aren't great and microphonic without a lot of volume. Still a fun guitar and well worth the price.

You might need to some filing to get your strings to seat properly, I have some guitars in drop B. 13-58. You can get by without filing but your strings wont seat properly on the low end. You might need to do some bridge adjustments too. It's not hard. Just labor of love.
