Chris Broderick Soloist™

With his dazzling thrash fretwork, former Megadeth and current Act of Defiance guitarist Chris Broderick is heralded as an exacting and modern metal master.

When Broderick first came to Jackson to design his own signature model, he had very exacting demands in mind for his take on the venerable Soloist™. Finding a more-than-willing partner up for the challenge, Broderick coined the longstanding high-performance guitar giant as the “company that could.”

NEW Pro Series Hardtail 6 and 7-String Models Added in 2018


Available in Metallic Blue or Metallic Black, the Pro Series Signature Chris Broderick Soloist HT6 and HT7 models feature a 25.5” scale guitar, resonant mahogany body and one-piece through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement for rock-solid sustain and stability. A 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is ideal for all playing styles, comfortable for both low riffing and soaring leads.

Broderick's all-new Pro HT models feature the Jackson Single-String hardtail bridge, which creates perfect intonation along the entire length of the neck to ensure complex chords ring true, working in harmony with the Jackson-branded sealed die-cast locking machines for tuning stability that can withstand a good pick-hand thrashing without shifting.

“The first thing that really intrigued me about Jackson was they were like the company that could. When I was talking to them I was like, 'is there any chance we could maybe do an asymmetrical body?' And they were like, 'yeah, sure.' 'What about stainless steel frets on my guitar?' 'Yeah, no problem.' 'What about the 12" continuous radius? I really want a continuous 12-inch radius.' 'Oh yeah, sure.' When you meet a company like that, that is so willing to experiment with you and really work on your design, something that is very personal to you, they can't be beat.”
