Joe
 Go to your local music store and negotiate a cash deal.  Retail is much better than the MSRP!!

Okay I went to the music store today and I asked them about the exact model of the KV2 on the Jackson site in black. It came to about 2,800$.......

IIRC, I paid around 1500 for mine. I got it from a collector, and it still had the hang tag and original strings on it.

Okay I get it now. Thanks for pointing it out for me.

Well I took a look at the KV2's and did a bit of research and I guess all the parts and shit I named off WAS a KV2 hahaha. So I'll save myself a few thousand and get a KV2 I guess. There bloody nice guitars. 

Expensive though. How much did you get your's for?

Well, I guess it was a little of both. But to wait for a inexpensive guitar for even a month is just to long.
And Guid`s, Ken is still waiting on his black one to arrive (see the steel mill), so I`d be willing to bet I would still be waiting also!!! But hey,when they become readily available, I`ll buy one and trade you for ...you know what?????

Okay, could you send me some pictures of a guitar with bindings (neck, body, or both) and one without so I know what they look like?

Joe
 SDB is right about the custom shop. Just for grins and giggles a few months back , I submitted a custom build to Jackson and ESP. Both were over 4  grand and the only difference between what I submitted and what I now have was the pickups and the fingerboard. I opted ,then, for the Duncan Distortion and the Duncan Hotrails, with an Maple fingerboard. Jackson actually came in slightly cheaper than ESP. But both listed nearly a year before delivery.
As for binding, as mentioned ,strictly cosmetic, but it does enhance the look of the neck.
So far, I like the EMG`s, very high output, not a high as in distortion type of output, but in signal strength.
As far the Kahler, good units, but I`m addicted to the Floyds after all these years.

[SDBinNY] Tuesday, April 28, 2009 12:31:39 PM 
i'm telling you,Joe, what  you are looking for is nothing worth paying the custom upcharge for. Your best bet is to buy a black KV2 and make the hardware and electronic changes yourself. Fender owns Jackson now, and their custom shop orders start around 4 grand, so you can save more than the cost of the new hardware. If you do it as soon as you get it, you can always Fleabay the stuff you take out and recover some of that investment as well.

If you are looking for specifics about the KV2, let me know and I can post any pics you request. I have a KV2 and can get you shots or info on anything specific you want. They still come standard with medium frets, despite the info on the Jackson site (because any changes haven't made it to retail stock yet).

i go for a slimline neck and yes humbuckers - i prefer a motherbucker at the neck and a duncan PAF at neck - play a BC Rich Warlock thro a Marshall 5010 - several fx - that axe looks damn fine tho

I know I was just wondering what the hell the point of it was haha. 

I'm gonna get a through neck body, 81/85 EMG combo (still not sure about that), might get that EMG EXP or whatever the fuck it's called EQ switch, 24(it's not a real guitar unless it's got 24!!!) fret maple neck (ebony fretboard), alder body I think, sharkfin inlays (just cause I like them a little more), a 2300 Kahler Tremolo system most likely (still looking into different ones like classic Floyd's too), solid black paint job and chrome hardwear. Oh yeah it's a King V too haha.

Basically it'll look like this, with hardwear, knobs, and pickup differences. But this is the basic idea:

Alright I was looking into the Jackson Custom Shop last night and this is gonna sound stupid but... what the fuck are bindings haha? Like body, neck, and headstock bindings and do I need them? What's the point? What are they?
[guitardude] Monday, April 27, 2009 1:27:10 PM 
Well, I am glad you like it!!    So what will it be boxers or briefs??
EMG`s are smokin, but can`t really tell much of a difference when I toggle between the neck and bridge. Have only played it thru my Pocket POD and my son`s little Fender G-Dec, so I need to score a big amp .

    And the budget will recover soon enough.So buyers remorse should be minimal.

[SDBinNY] Sunday, April 26, 2009 1:38:59 PM 
HOLY CRAP !!! The flame on that top is drop dead gorgeous !!!!

VERY VERY nice score.... Glad the headstock matches, that really sets it off.

The EMG's sound phenomenal in my DK2M, and the 85 in the neck position oozes earthy tones.. How do they sound with the maple top?

I hope it doesn't screw the budget up too bad, Fender just had another price increase, and it seems to cascade to the secondary market.  Besides, you have no idea the mess that beauty has created here... You owe me a new pair of shorts my friend !!!!!!

[TIMBONI] Friday, April 24, 2009 10:57:55 PM 
Well, that's true.  Everyone plays other people's songs for a while.  But if you're up to it  .  .  .  write !  To me, music is all about expression and communication.  Why would you want to communicate someone else's feelings ?  Something I have always loved to do is to turn on the radio ( especially when KNAC was still on the air ) and ignore the vocals.  Then I would just solo all over it like it was my personal backing track.  Every time the song changes, you have to change with it.  The key changes, the tempo changes, the type of emotion changes, etc.

Doing basic bar chords can be frustrating, as they don`t really follow a riff. But, they can be helpful teaching you the feel and basic sounds in a particular key.
I can`t read sheet at all, just tabs, and even that is limited as I always tend to loose my place!!

bass clef, yes. treble, I write in the fingerings. at this point Im mostly wanting to play simple backup to my vocals. can always learn harder stuff later. currently tinkering with chords to couple songs.

There should be several books available to show you how to put phrases and chords together. Look for intro books for beginners and intermediates, any sale person should be able to point you in the right direction. Dou read sheet?

That is an awesome option, but much like mine I am more than certain your children have become comfortable with things like eating...

What options do they have in stock? If they have a website, drop me the link....

The SL2-H is a killer piece. Which variant did you get? There is one with an alder body and two with mahogany. If black was an option, odds are you have the alder one with a flamed maple top..
