No need to even take a glance at Megadave's new Gibsons and Kramers.

Made in Japan - 1993. A product of the notorious Chushin Gakki factory.

This thing is in incredible condition, I got very lucky. A lot of 'em ended up as beaters for the stage (since they were deemed to be lesser than the USA equivalents).

This is kinda connected to the thread I created about my Caparison Angelus - the same team were the builders of these early 1990 'Professional' models.

That is AWESOME! MegaDave is one of my earliest guitar influences. Always wanted one of his signature Jacksons. I recently picked up a 1999 MIJ Kelly so I can get my Marty on and a 2008 MIJ DK2.

That's dope. With a Kahler?

I recently picked up an X series King V. Love it.

If you like that, look for some of the 90s-00s Japanese mid level Jacksons. I think they are built far better than the modern Indonesian X series and they came with a HSC too! The used ones will probably cost less than a new X series too.

Thanks all. This is actually my first flying V; it had to be a special one!
I have to admit that I am only a casual listener of Megadeth. The specs of this KV are very much to my taste.

The Kahler on this one is fixed (APM 3310) - it seems that Marty also had this unit on his Kelly model.

Indeed, the were several periods of M.I.J. Jackson goodness:

Early '90s Professional
Grover stamped domestic exclusive line
Stars
2009-2010ish SLAT

...and they have produced a new 'MJ' series as-of-late:
