Iron Maiden is one of the most successful and influential metal bands ever, and Adrian Smith’s molten yet melodic guitar work has long been a driving force behind their distinctive and dynamic sound. With timeless songwriting and thrilling live performances, Maiden continues to record, tour internationally and rock stadiums everywhere with electrifying prowess and unwavering heavy metal passion.
Solidly built to withstand Maiden’s relentless touring regiment, the USA Signature Adrian Smith San Dimas® SD features a resonant, lightweight alder body. The bolt-on quartersawn maple neck has a hand-rubbed urethane back finish for smooth playability and a pair of graphite reinforcement rods that refuse to budge, no matter the environmental stress it’s exposed to. Featuring 22 jumbo frets and pearl dot inlays, the 12"-16" compound radius ebony fingerboard is the ideal platform for heavy chording and fast, ripping solos, while a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel allows for quick and easy neck relief tweaks.
A DiMarzio Super Distortion humbucker in the bridge offers the perfect blend of power and tone — thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs, while Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Single-Coil Strat® middle and neck pickups deliver authentic, noise-free Stratocaster snap with incredible dynamic and magnetic response. A five-way blade selector switch along with single volume and tone controls open up endless tonal possibilities, while the Floyd Rose® Original double-locking tremolo system keeps the guitar in tune through the roughest playing, set after set.
Groomed for high-performance and speedy playability, this signature axe is wrapped in a classic Snow White finish with white pickguard, black hardware and licensed Fender® Strat® headstock.
