Happy Sweet 16th Birthday to my original 'Solar' Jackson PC1. It's just had a makeover. Adam Reiver just fitted it with titanium hardware and it's back on the road. I just wanted to share it because it looks gorgeous. This is the one that Jackson guitars used in their ad 16 years ago. - Phil

" Alright, first off I have to say that there are no numbers under the ranking marks, so if there is any confusion, MY RATING IS DEFINITELY 5 STARS!!!!
We tried the Titanium blocks on one of Phil's Jackson PC-1's during the summer tour last year, and were completely amazed at the change in the tone of the instrument. Every note suddenly had an extra definition and balance that never existed with the standard block, but all without being harsh or brittle. Notes in chords were all easily discernible, very even in volume and there was a serious increase in sustain.
Needless to say, Phil LOVED it!!
