New 7-string signature model from Jackson – the Chris Broderick Soloist 7. Working with Jackson Custom Shop Master Builder Mike Shannon, Broderick designed his own special take on the venerable Soloist, with an offset arch-top mahogany body and quilt maple top (with matching headstock).
Features include quartersawn maple neck with quilt maple binding and Floyd Rose nut, natural body and headstock binding, ebony fingerboard, Broderick-designed Custom DiMarizio direct-mounted humbucking neck and bridge pickups and recessed Floyd Rose Pro bridge.
When Chris Broderick joined a revitalized Megadeth in 2008, fans were awestruck by his dazzling thrash fretwork. Jackson now honors this modern metal master with the Chris Broderick Soloist, in six-string and seven-string models.
