Jet JS450 Trans Blue
Blessed with boutique looks and built using high-end parts, the JET Guitars JS-450 is no doubt one of the best kept secrets in the world of guitars. Best of all, it comes at an inexplicably low price, despite the fact that it features a stunning basswood body. Not only that, the JS-450 sports a flamed maple top coated in transparent, colour-fading high-gloss lacquer and serves to beautifully bring out the wood grain, all of which is then nicely accentuated by binding lining the body.
The JS-450: Roasted Maple Neck
Another one of the high-end features of the JS-450 is its roasted maple neck with C-profile and traditional, 9.5" fretboard radius. Finished in a thin satin-gloss, it's the neck of this electric guitar that elevates its aesthetics and gives way to a familiar playing experience.
HSS Pickup Configuration
Since JET Guitars have armed this 450 Series model with a humbucker and two single-coil pickups, players can expect to pull a serious amount of different sounds out of the J-450. In fact, the guitar effortlessly handles anything from straight-up pop to down-right rock, while smaller but no less important details like the bone nut and locking machine heads call even more attention to the high-end build of this surprisingly affordable axe.
