With his dazzling thrash fretwork, former Megadeth and current Act of Defiance guitarist Chris Broderick is heralded as an exacting and modern metal master.
When Broderick first came to Jackson® to design his own signature model, he had exacting demands in mind for his take on the venerable Soloist™. Finding a more-than-willing partner up for the challenge, Broderick coined the longstanding high-performance guitar giant as the “company that could.” The results of the collaboration are sophisticated riffing machines loaded with premium features to keep up with the most demanding styles of music.
The Jackson Pro Series Signature Chris Broderick Soloist 6 features a 25.5” scale length, resonant mahogany body with arched top and through-body one-piece maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement for rock-solid sustain and stability. Its 12”-radius bound laurel fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is ideal for all playing styles, comfortable for both low riffing and soaring leads.
Direct mount DiMarzio® Chris Broderick signature pickups are ready to deliver powerful, clean tones with harmonic brights that accentuate pick attack. 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 mini-toggle kill switch allows for the stuttering effects that have become integral in modern metal. Other premium features include stylish fingerboard and headstock binding, Floyd Rose® Special tremolo, Jackson die-cast tuners and Dunlop® locking strap buttons.
Wrapped in a Satin Black or Snow White finish with matching reverse Jackson 3x3 AT-1 headstock and black hardware, this pedigreed metal machine is a force to be reckoned with.
