Jackson guitars welcome you to the dark side! The brand releases a fresh batch of metal monsters for 2019, ready to take you directly to shred heaven. Read on for the latest on the awesome new guitars and basses launched at NAMM this year.
Kicking things off in style, the Jackson X Series Soloist SLX Crackle is an extreme offering. The molten crackle finish is available in either orange or green, with magma flowing through the black finish. The through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement is built for speed, and the Duncan Designed HB103 humbuckers give a high output growl. In addition, a Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo bridge system ensures string stability and extreme dynamism.
A classic of the shred-iverse, many a metal guitarist favours Jackson’s Pro Series Dinky DK2. An alder body is bolted to a graphite-reinforced maple neck with a hand-rubbed urethane back finish, giving you a sleek playing experience. Direct mount Seymour Duncan JB and ’59 pickups provide the powerful tone. As can be expected from a Dinky, there’s an official Floyd Rose 1000 double-locking system for the ultimate in whammy bar action.
Jackson’s JS Series guitars are the most wallet-friendly in their line-up, and they don’t skimp on quality. This Dinky Arch Top JS22 makes it easier than ever to get the coveted tone, looks and playability of a Jackson. With an okoume body, maple neck and a pair of high-output Jackson pickups, this is guaranteed to make any beginner very happy indeed.
The Jackson Pro Series Soloist will help you take your playing to unprecedented heights! With state-of-the-art features, this axe covers comfort, technical playing and a versatile tone. The HSS configuration gives you superb tonal options, thanks to the trio of quality Seymour Duncan pickups. Available in mahogany, or with a beautiful quilted maple top, the SL3 sets itself up as a real star of the line-up!
Phil Demmel is a lifelong Jackson player, and the brand immortalises his name in the Demmelition Fury PD. This fearsome guitar is an affordable full-throttle riff machine, and features a unique offset mahogany body. The EMG 81 and 60 pickups provide detailed intensity through thick and chunky mids and lows, together with a searing high end.
Having gained widespread acclaim as a highly technical and progressive player, Misha Mansoor has personally designed his Pro Series signature guitar – the Juggernaut. Available in both 6 and 7 string configurations, this thoroughbred axe is sure to set any shredder’s tone ablaze. A basswood body with an optional quilted maple top and a caremelized maple neck make for a solid base. Misha’s custom MM1 pickups sound killer, developed in conjunction with Jackson for a truly searing tone.
Jeff Loomis has torn apart the technical metal scene with his musical output thus-far, and Jackson welcome him to the family with his own signature model. The USA Signature Jeff Loomis Kelly is a real premium guitar, packing a punch with its distressed and menacing sandblasted ash looks. The Dynamic Seymour Duncan Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts give a roaring, monolithic sound. Aggressive and articulate with masses of sustain.
Versatility, style and enormous sound combine to create the all-new Jackson JS Series bass guitars. A fresh offset body evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument, giving great balance for hours of comfortable playing. The JS2 features a PJ pickup configuration, and the JS3 (also available as a 5-string) uses a pair of humbuckers. Whether you need punchy growls, lucid tones or monstrous low-end thud, the Spectra has you covered.
Bring the thunder with Jackson’s X Series Concert bass! Upgraded electronics, comfortable playability and brutal styling make this the perfect bass for any style needing low, punchy bass tones. A PJ pickups configuration and active tone circuit gives you massive versatility over your tone. The Concert Bass CBXNT is available in both 4 and 5 strings models.
