THE SO-CAL


Misha’s all-new MJ So-Cal 2PT CM marks the first signature collaboration for Jackson at the brand-new Made in Japan MJ Series. From a caramelized maple neck and 20”-radius caramelized flame maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo stainless steel frets to Luminlay® side dots, heel-mount truss rod wheel and a trio of Bare Knuckle pickups, this Daphne Blue is a sophisticated sound machine.

“We have my Bare Knuckle Ragnarok bridge pickup, and that is a very aggressive pickup," said Mansoor. "We also have a Bare Knuckle Trilogy Suite middle and neck (single-coil) pickup to complement it and with this, you actually get an insanely versatile set of tones. Obviously, the Ragnarok is a very aggressive bridge tone, and it actually works surprisingly well on mid-gain and clean stuff. I don’t know why, but it just does. And you’ve got the neck and the middle, so you can get those wonderful, single-coil, Strat tones.”





THE JUGGERNAUT


Combining the DNA from the time-tested Dinky™ and Soloist™ models, these familiar-feeling, thoroughly modern Juggernaut masterpieces seamlessly meld contemporary elements with classic features for a truly unique sonic identity.

Built to Mansoor’s exact specifications, his collection of signature Juggernauts feature the latest in technology combined with premium materials for massive amounts of articulation—a requirement when playing demanding progressive metal chord structures.

New for 2021, the acclaimed djent architect of Periphery has two new models featuring the game-changing EverTune® bridge with the Pro Series Signature Misha Mansoor Juggernaut ET6 and Pro Series Signature Misha Mansoor Juggernaut ET7.


“For those of you who don't know what an EverTune is, it’s a magical bridge that keeps your guitar in tune. It’s kind of insane—some super complicated tension-based system, but if you set up the guitar right, you can strike a string as hard as you want and it will never go sharp or flat. You can even set it up in this ‘safe zone’ as I call it where you can still bend – you just give it a little more than you usually would. Anyone who records knows how much time is spent in the studio just tuning your guitar. It’s a huge time saver when tracking and recording.”
