    Wg standard.

    Though it is more expensive.

    But I have changed my opinion on them. The quality on them improves year over year.

    It plays almost as well as my MIM Wolfgang Special.

    The neck is great. Pickups are great. Stays in tune with whammy bar.

    I play my Standard more than my Special right now.

    The newer ones with the baked necks are probably really good. I have a 2018 or 19 model gold top.


    Check out some reviews on youtube.

    My brother in law has one of those Jacksons. Plays great. The neck has a great feel.
    It's not my Soloist but I was surprised how good it was for the price. The biggest draw back is the pickups. Not too good. Take those out and you got a nice guitar, though.

    Tyler is right. The Wolfgang is a much higher price point with better stock. It's the better instrument.

    I haven't played the Jackson, but really enjoy my Wolfgang Standard. I had bought it as a platform for mods and to use at casino gigs. It's turned out to be one of my favorite guitars to play.

    Whichever way you go I think the key to this "budget" range of guitars is to try and play them before you buy. That'll weed out the duds and help you find the best of the bunch.

    Jedi, not to be off topic, but it looks like the neck on your standard is leaning "right". The high E looks like it's falling off the fretboard! I imagine it's not a problem when you play or you would have noticed by now.

    Probably just the angle the guitar is at in the pic.

    Jedi, your mods make the "Ed Tinkerer" in me extremely happy.

    The new WG Standards are amazing for the price. I'm looking at getting either the Northern Lights or spalted maple one. Fuck, I might just have to get both because they look so awesome.
