Anyone played or own this guitar? I am thinking of buying it, maybe going with the MAH model. I´ve read reviews on Harmony Central but, I wanted to hear some other opinions too.

My Two Cents: I´ve played Jackson Soloists they are great. This is one of their USA models and is very very nice but a little on the pricey side. The transparent blue is really sharp looking.

Yeah, it is a tad expensive, but I am hoping that it will be worth the money. The blue IS sharp, that´s what color I will probably end up choosing. I am not sure if it would be worth it to go with the alder body or spend a little more and get the mahogany. Do you know what difference those two wood types might make, Lindyn?

Most of the tone an electric guitar gets comes from its electronic and pickups rather than the wood it is made of. The type of woods used may effect the sound of an electric guitar slightly but not the same way that woods effect the sound of an acoustic guitar. So really its a matter of looks.
