In collaboration with Jackson Custom Shop Master Builder Mike Shannon, modern metal master Chris Broderick designed his own take on the venerable Soloist.
This hardtail axe features an offset arch top mahogany body with premium 5/8" quilt maple top or plain maple top (Gloss Black only), through-body quartersawn maple neck and binding around the body, neck and headstock. Hosting 24 jumbo frets, the 12”-radius ebony fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles, comfortable for both low riffing and soaring leads.
Contemporary guitarists require tonal versatility and punchy clarity to keep pace with the rapid twists and turns of today’s metal. A pair of direct mount Broderick-designed custom DiMarzio® humbucking neck and bridge pickups punch well above their weight, cranking out monstrous tone that will pin your ears back. The volume control conceals a push/pull switch for coil-splitting, unlocking even more tonal options while the tone control’s push/pull switch enables the tone circuit. A kill switch allows for the stuttering effects that have become integral in modern metal. The Jackson® Single String hardtail bridge creates perfect intonation along the entire length of the neck to ensure complex chords ring true, working in harmony with the Planet Waves® Auto-Trim tuning machines for tuning stability that can withstand a good pick-hand thrashing without shifting.
Lastly, Ernie Ball® strap locks ensure your axe won’t go flying during onstage acrobatics.
