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 the premium features needed to keep up with the most demanding music produced today.
The Jackson Pro Series Signature Chris Broderick Soloist 7 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 deliver powerful clear harmonics with tight lows for versatile tone, from heavy chording to searing solos. 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 features include stylish fingerboard and headstock binding, a Floyd Rose® Special 7-string tremolo, Jackson die-cast tuners and Dunlop® locking strap buttons.
Wrapped in a Satin Black or Snow White finish with matching reverse Jackson 3x4 AT-1 headstock and black hardware, this pedigreed 7-string metal machine is ready for destruction.
