Guitar serial number

9829116 - Jackson guitar
Can someone tell me more about this guitar using the serial number please?

NEED HELP IDing this Jackson

I can’t find any info about this guitar . Starts with NHJ1000342 for serial . Has fin inlays, from the pics looks like 24 frets

Info on where my guitar was made.

I had a King V made for me in 1986. It is serial # J1777. I was wondering where it was made and by whom. I've kept this guitar for 30 years. It came with a Kahler tremolo (which I requested) that hasn't let me down in all this time. I've had to have the original J-50's replaced due to sweat and road wear, but this guitar will not go out of tune for anything. It cost around $1700 at the time, but it is the most reliable instrument I've ever owned, and it's going to my son upon my demise. Thanks for any info on the builder you can give me.

Approximately what is it worth ?

Thank you,

Jackson MIJ

Jackson MIJ started using USA Seymour Duncan pickups on Japanese Jacksons around the end of 2005, and all the Jackson MIJ models I've seen having such serial numbers starting with first two digits 96, 97 are built around 2006 or 2007. If the guitar is close to mint condition, it is worth at least $599

Would be glad if anyone could help me identify it.

Jackson Guitar

Hi, I saw your post and wondered if you found any info on your guitar, I just picked up a nice Amber Burst colored Jackson and I've been able to determine it is a DK. It has Duncan pickups like yours (2 single and 1 HB) mine has the licensed Floyd Rose tremolo with shark fin inlays on the rose fingerboard, the back of the neck is Maple. All my hardware is black and I am trying to figure out where it was made, hopefully Japan. The build quality seems very good to me, just as good as my American Strat and PRS SE (made in Korea) , I took the neck off but it does not give a clear indication of anything, a Possible date could be cut off that is 10-5-10, not clearly legible, it does say DK2, also 6-2 on the neck and 5-1 and ASB on the body. I was just wondering if you found out any other info on yours, thanks.

New Bass

Just picked up a beautiful Jackson C-5A 5 string, the A standing for Ash wood for the body. The serial number, 030150, is stamped into the last fret. I've had many Jacksons, but never this model. It seems to be a Concert body, 3 band EQ with Master and Sweep, and Duncan Designed soap bars. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

The A stands for active.

The A stands for active. There is also a C5P for passive. I've had both. Nice basses. Made in Japan

re: Jackson C5A Bass

Hi, with so many requests to id personal guitars I figured I would stop and help out a little if I can. First, your bass is from 2003 (which is funny because you will not find it in the 2003 catalog?). Of coarse this is not the first time I have seen this probably due to late catalogs or ending production early in the year. Anyway, you are correct in it's resemblance to the Concert Series as the "C" signifies exactly that. But, the "A" is a little less obvious. Actually, the standard C5A has an Alder Body. In most cases the last letter refers to the the pick up configuration (more on that later). HOWEVER, if I remember right it was the solid colors that had the Alder body. And if your guitar happens to have a transparent 'Red' finish the body is indeed "ASH". On the other hand if your guitar has the transparent "Tobacco Sunburst" finish it is made of Mahogany. All of which included a Maple Bolt on neck and Rosewood board.

With that said, the other basses in the Concert series included the C20 (for all I know it could have been 20 degrees Celsius outside that day?), C5MJ & the CMG. Now the C5MJ came with a Duncan Design MM100 & a JB102N, hence the "MJ". While the CMG came with EMGHZ's of coarse. As for your C5A? Well as you know it also has Duncan Design's but instead they used SB101's in both the bridge & neck positions. While the C20 also lacked the EQ system it came with Jackson J100 pick ups. And last but not least, if my memory is 'part' what it used to be the C20 is made in India and the C4A/C5A, C5MJ & CMG were made in Japan. Please do not sacrifice me to the wolves if any info isn't 110% accurate because my memory isn't quite what it used to be. Still my Passion for Charvel/Jackson helps to keep this type of information accurate, besides I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried! I wish I had time to help everyone out but it would be a full time job and God knows I do not need another one of them! Hope this helps, Paul "Keep the Bloodline Alive!"
