we need 10 people to do a lefty run with Jackson's Custom Shop and there has been a great interest in an Extreme Warrior. we'd have to agree upon the spec's that we would choose because it is a custom, CS runs are only somewhat discounted and usually are completed much faster than average one-of customs. No word on exact price yet but its expected to be around 2-3K.

Specs proposed by Eric wr1:
Left hand xtreme warrior
Neck through with a Speed neck like kv2
EMG's (81 bridge, 85 neck)or SD (invader bridge, full shred neck)[normal config]
Black pickup bezels
24 frets (jumbo)
Ebony fingerboard w/ MOP sharkfins
head & neck binding (cream[normal] or red)
no binding over the frets
base color: black (option: red bevels)
Jackson style neck
Headstock: regular or reversed
body wood: alder or mahogany (might sound better with EMG's)
Neck wood: quartersawn maple
Trem: original floyd rose (recessed)
locking nut
black hardware
1 volume, 1 tone (metal dome)
3 way toggle
no pick guard (rear routed controls)
painted neck (black to match body)
input jack:either a strat type (normal warrior) or oval plate side of body

Could do scalloped heel and horn, but I think the normal warrior already has a little bit of a scalloped heel and horn.

What does it mean to have binding on the neck, but not on the frets? I kind of like the binding on the USA models. Although, I would be up for red to match the red bevels.

I think he means just standard binding like on the USA models, I know some companies offer binding over the fret wire it self and thats what I think he means by that statement.

Who would put binding on the frets? :p

Ok, that makes sense. We should also make sure we get the "custom shop" logo on the headstock. I've heard that they don't always put that on unless you specify.

Of course, the fact that it is a lefty extreme warrior kind of makes it obvious :headbang;

i wouldnt mind the custom shop inlay on the headstock..im a little skittish about the red bevels but eric wr1's proposed specs list it as optional.im thinking all black for mine.im hoping that we can get ten lefties to get in on this run.we can all save money!

I'm hoping there is money to be saved and not just a bump up the line which could be cool though too. Right now we are just trying to see if we can get 10 people interested and then we'll see how much it costs.

I might try out one of my local Jackson dealers with a quote just to see how much it costs doing 1 guitar.

Do you guys want me to do that? Atleast then we would know for sure roughly how much it will cost. Then I could go back to Matt and see if we did a group run if it would save us money or not.

Hell, Ill ask my local dealer if we did a group run of ten if it would affect the price or not.

I kinda like the idea of red bevels, I have enough solid black guitars personally, but really I could go either way I just want to get the ball rolling on this, Im really excited about it. And I too am for the Custom Shop logo

That sounds good to me, let us know, I might have to go that way if we cant find ten people

I agree that getting some real pricing info based on what we've agreed upon so far would be good. Depending, we might lose some people or gain some.

I'm with theherocycle on wanting something that wasn't all black. If red is a little aggressive, maybe silver bevels? Just something that would highlight the cool shape.

what about getting a price from southpaw guitars?they are known to do ten runs .they may be apt to cover the other five open slots to begin the run.i think they would have little difficulty selling the other five unspoken guitars.just an idea to get this moving.....

Damn! That sucks. So it would have to be a regular model with regular paint I bet as well. No custom graphics either I bet or swirl paint jobs.

yes if you want a discount, limited run discounted prices only apply to production models, and the extreme warrior is not a production model so we should expect to pay custom prices. But please dont let me discourage your research, I'm still on board if we decide to do this.

that is a good idea actually, still expect to pay through the nose though.

And would they consider dropping in some Bare Knuckle (http://www.bareknucklepickups.co.uk/products.html) humbuckers? My wife is off to England next week, and I'm going to ask her if she can pick me up some.

Which model BKP's are you considering? There's almost too many to pick from.

It seems like the Nailbombs are popular in Jacksons, but then I know some people prefer the Painkillers.

I like the idea of having a manufacturer run a limited number of guitars for us, but $2-3K is pretty steep.

I could build these for about $1500, but they wouldn't be Jackson's. But you could spec everything out as far as pickups etc, so nobody would have to settle for a setup they didn't like.

All I need is a body template.

hmmm how to explain...ok look at my Warlock, the edges are beveled instead of flat. Usually a Jackson RR has beveled edges as well.

I was thinking of a new Jackson this summer if the VA keeps me at my current pension rate.. Ihad in mind a soloist with the nebula graphic.. Iam so tired of black leftys eventhough I wear black my car is black and my Harley is black... but 90% of the market is black leftys...that being said if you guys are thinking of a custom run and expecting it to run between 2-3k we sould explore other paint options.. IMO..
check out the Extream Warrior Custom Shop/ w graphic. this thing is killer!! I would deff shill out 3k for this fucker.. even if I have to sell a kidney!

Also not sure if I posted this link to Southpaw guitar but they ordered custom run of Kellys..@2,699.99
Iam 50/50 with you guys... how soon do you expect to finalize the orders and get approxamite pricing?

I'm just thinking out loud here, so hopefully I don't offend anyone. If you can only get stock options for a custom run, then why even bother. That's unless they're going to cut them at a discount. I don't see the point in going through all the effort of getting a custom run going if you can walk into any Jackson dealer and order on your own.

If Jackson won't let you guys order something unique, I'd check with ESP or Ran to see if they would do something for you guys. If it were me, I'd try to get Ran to do it, they'll do just about anything and they're top quality stuff! Just my thoughts.

Ok...this is all saufen's fault for resurrecting this thread :D I just ordered an Extreme Warrior from Jason @ DCGL.

I learned that there are some variations to the Extreme Warrior shape....from mild to wild. When this thread was started, we were all looking at the wild one. The link above to CMC Guitars is the mild version. The difference is how deep or 'severe' the cutouts are.

I went for a combination of the wild body shape and the cutout sharkfin inlays like the one at CMC. Black with Snow White bevels....white binding on the neck and headstock to match.

Now the agonizing wait begins. I was quoted 9-12 months, so we'll see. I've heard some Jackson customs taking as long as 2 years. :eek:

HOLY SHIT. That thing is going to be sick! Glad u went with DL/GC. youd think Jason was a lefty for being so cool with us! I was quoted 4-6 for my RR1 but its not even a custom shop. And BTW I been waiting on a Fender Strat Deluxe now for 8 months now.. Im seriously wondering if I can contact Fender and ask them WTF?
