Jackson X Series guitars are loaded with pure Jackson DNA—classic Jackson designs, outstanding tone, ultra-fast playability and eminently affordable value for 21st century guitarists. Built with the very latest in Jackson expertise and innovation, X Series models feature hot humbucking pickups that deliver well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids and crunching highs. Their bound compound-radius rosewood fingerboards curve more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flatten out approaching the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out.
Jackson X series models feature a selection of EMG® and Duncan Designed™ humbucking pickups for unparalleled tonal versatility from clean to heavily distorted. All tremolo-equipped models feature Floyd Rose® Special bridges.
True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980. For greater playability and sustain, X Series models feature a neck-through design usually reserved for much more expensive instruments. Further, graphite support rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
X Series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
The X Series presents a wealth of distinctive Jackson stylistic options from the subdued to the striking. Sharkfin or “piranha” fingerboard inlays. The traditional Jackson six-in-line headstock or an AT headstock with tuners on either side. Deep solid colors or beautifully figured tops. The X Series has something for everyone.
