USA Signature Chris Broderick Soloist™ HT6, Ebony Fingerboard, Transparent Blue

$4,551.71 MSRP

In collaboration with Jackson Custom Shop Master Builder Mike Shannon, modern metal master Chris Broderick designed his own take on the venerable Soloist.

This hardtail axe features an offset arch top mahogany body with premium 5/8" quilt maple top or plain maple top (Gloss Black only), through-body quartersawn maple neck and binding around the body, neck and headstock. The 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is ideal for all playing styles, comfortable for both low riffing and soaring leads.

Contemporary guitarists require tonal versatility and punchy clarity to keep pace with the rapid twists and turns of today’s metal. A pair of Broderick-designed custom DiMarzio® direct mounted humbucking neck and bridge pickups punch well above their weight, cranking out monstrous tone that will pin your ears back. The volume control conceals a push/pull switch for coil-splitting, unlocking even more tonal options while the tone control’s push/pull switch enables the tone circuit. A kill switch allows for the stuttering effects that have become integral in modern metal. The Jackson® Single String hardtail bridge creates perfect intonation along the entire length of the neck to ensure complex chords ring true, working in harmony with the Planet Waves® Auto-Trim tuning machines for tuning stability that can withstand a good pick-hand thrashing without shifting.

Lastly, Ernie Ball® strap locks ensure your axe won’t go flying during onstage acrobatics.

Jackson Single-String Hardtail Bridge

This unique design features separate and individually direct mounted string saddles. Each string is isolated, allowing for individual resonance per string and a more focused sound.

Direct Mount DiMarzio® D Activator Chris Broderick Signature Pickups

The Broderick-designed DiMarzio® D Activator humbucking neck and bridge pickups are passive with a lot of headroom, and respond quickly and accurately to changes in pick attack. A hard pick attack doesn’t cause the signal to flatten out and picking more softly or rolling the volume control down lets the sound clean up naturally. Tonally versatile, these pickups punch well above their weight, cranking out monstrous tone that will pin your ears back, while also delivering glassy single-coil tones.
