Jackson announce new Marty Friedman MF-1 signature model. The MF-1 honours the longstanding relationship that Friedman has with Jackson by collaborating with the virtuoso on the all-new USA Signature Marty Friedman MF-1 and the more affordable X Series version. Friedman wanted a futuristic-looking singlecut so the MF-1 is based on the Monarkh body shape in distinctive gloss black with white bevels and comes loaded with Friedman’s discerning specifications…

The Jackson Marty Friedman MF-1 signature model features a Mahogany body with a thick Maple top, one-piece Mahogany set-neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, bound 12″ radius Rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays. The pickups are a pair of Marty Friedman EMG MF signature humbuckers. The hardware features a Jackson compensated and adjustable bridge, die-cast locking tuners and a reverse Jackson 3×3 (3 over, 3 under) AT-1 headstock.

“From the first time I saved my money as a teen to buy a Jackson to the day they released my first sig model Kelly, there was always an aura of greatness about the brand and the instruments. Even more important than that, the people at the company have always gone way beyond the call of duty to help me pursue my musical goals—even when I was not officially working with the company. That speaks volumes to me. My longstanding relationship with Jackson gave birth to my new sig model, which was a massive project for both of us. It’s a guitar that can hang with the most aggressive playing possible, as well as allows for tender interpretations of melodies, two major elements of my music. Oh, and it looks badass, too.” – Marty Friedman
