ARTIST SIGNATURE MODELS

Chris Broderick Pro Series Soloist™ 6 and 7

When Chris Broderick joined a revitalized Megadeth in 2008, fans were awestruck by his chops. Jackson now honors this metal stalwart with the Chris Broderick Pro Series Soloist, in six-string and seven-string models.

Both models boast an arch-top mahogany body and through-body maple neck, 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets, 25.5” scale length, stylish fingerboard and headstock binding, direct-mount DiMarzio® Chris Broderick signature pickups, Floyd Rose® Special tremolo (Special seven-string tremolo on seven-string model), Jackson die-cast tuners and Dunlop® locking strap buttons.

Corey Beaulieu USA Signature KV6 and KV7

Trivium’s Corey Beaulieu is a true virtuoso and needs a guitar to keep up with his blindingly fast hands. That’s why Jackson is excited to honor him and Trivium fans alike with the Corey Beaulieu USA Signature KV, in six-string and seven-string models.

Both models feature an alder body (AAA flame top on trans finish model), bound through-body quartersawn maple neck, compound-radius, ebony fingerboard with old-school sharkfin inlays, covered Seymour Duncan® Blackout pickups with three-way toggle switching, single volume control, original Floyd Rose tremolo (seven-string tremolo on seven-string model), and Jackson tuners.
