Jackson Chris Broderick Soloist 7
Jackson introduces the Chris Broderick Soloist 7, a seven-string metal guitar co-designed by Megadeth's famed virtuoso.
This signature model is part of Jackson's latest 2013 guitar models, a 6 string version of this guitar is also available.
With Dave Mustaine and Megadeth fans impressed, Chris Broderick helped revitalize Megadeth back in 2008. He wowed fans and guitar manufacturers alike with his impressive fretwork.
Now Jackson pays tribute to this modern metal master with the new Chris Broderick Soloist, in six-string and seven-string models.
This signature guitar is Broderick's personal take on the original Jackson Soloist model. Jackson Custom Shop Master Builder Mike Shannon worked with Chris Broderick to plan and design this guitar, resulting in a juiced up Soloist with improved aesthetics.
The body of the Chris Broderick Soloist 7 is made of mahogany that features an offset double cutaway shape, and a beautiful arched quilt maple top that matches the headstock. The guitar is currently available in four finishes: Black, Transparent White, Transparent Red and Transparent Black.
Attached to the body is a quartersawn maple neck topped with an ebony fretboard. It gives you 24 easy to play jumbo frets and a scale length of 25.5". Being a signature guitar, the neck features a quilt maple binding for matching aesthetics with the headstock binding.
Capturing the guitar's tone are two Chris Broderick designed Custom Dimarzio direct mounted pickups. These pickups are built to meet the demands of Chris playing, which makes it a friendly choice for Megadeth fans and other high gain guitar slingers. A three-way toggle switch lets you choose which pickup to engage, while controls are provided for by the Master Volume knob and Master Tone knob. A nifty Killswitch is also part of the design.
Rounding off its features are some cool hardware including a recessed Floyd Rose Pro bridge, Planet Waves Auto-Trim tuners, side-mounted Rhoads jack, Ernie Ball strap locks and a G&G case.
