Meet the Jackson 5!

Thought I'd get a photo of all my RRs together. Middle one is Jackson professional RR 1 hand built, through neck. Solid. Got 3 projects on the go and the green dinky was a bargain.

Hi, tuners have been replaced. Tren Saddles correct. not sure about thescratch plate, is there a spare hole under it as this usually happens on an 8 to 11 conversion. however they have bben known to have non historically correct combos.
