12"-16" Compound Radius Fingerboard
Jackson pioneered the use of the innovative 12"-16" compound radius 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.

HSS Configuration:Jackson High-Output Humbucking (Bridge)/Jackson Single-Coil Neck & Middle Pickups
An atypical configuration for Jackson, this guitar features a humbucker in the bridge position and single-coil pickups in the neck and mid positions. The Jackson high-output humbucking pickup was painstakingly voiced for full, rich tone while providing maximum overdrive and sustain. The Jackson single-coil middle and neck pickups deliver that tried-and-tested Strat sound.
