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

Those premium features include 25.5" scale, offset arch top mahogany body, premium 5/8" quilt maple top or plain maple top (Gloss Black only), through-body quartersawn maple neck, 12" flat radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo stainless steel frets, binding around the body, neck and headstock, direct mount DiMarzio Chris Broderick signature pickups, Floyd Rose Lo-Pro tremolo bridge, Planet Waves™ Auto-Trim locking tuners, Ernie Ball® strap locks, push/pull volume with coil split, push/pull tone control, kill switch and matching reverse AT-1 headstock. Comes with a hardshell case.
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.
