I'm interested in buying a new electric, a Jackson. I've been looking at a couple of models and one of the models that seems to appeal most to my preference and style of playing (metal) and also fits within my budget (1,000-1600) is the SL3. Any suggestions/thoughts/ideas from owners of jackson guitars?

I'm gonna pretend to be Akira and tell you to get the SL2. Any high end Jackson will be worth the bread from what I've played. Always smooth as butter.

I've heard pretty good things about the SL3 as well, which appears to be significantly cheaper.

ive never have played the sl3, but i do own two jacksons, the rr3 and rr5.
they both have fast necks and handle very well.in my opinion, you really cant go wrong buying any jackson pro series guitars.

Can you put the bottom V between your legs like other guitarists usually do?
