New Jackson X Series guitar for 2012 – the Adrian Smith SDX signature model. Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden has been a Jackson endorsed guitarist for years and already has a US made Jackson Adrian Smith signature San Dimas model to his name.

The big difference with this new SDX is it’s made in Asia and is a quarter of the price. The other cost-saving features are the Jackson pickups rather than DiMarzio, the Floyd Rose Special rather than an Original and the tuners are Jackson rather than Gotoh.
