USA Signature Rob Caggiano Shadowcaster, Ebony Fingerboard, Trans Purple Fade
Triple threat Rob Caggiano has made a name for himself as an acclaimed musician, songwriter and producer. Currently the lead guitarist for Danish heavy metal-rockabilly band Volbeat, Caggiano has also snagged five Grammy nominations as a record producer/guitarist and has worked with a diverse array of artist including Anthrax, The Damned Things, Cradle of Filth and Bruce Springsteen.
Jackson® is thrilled to honor his expansive talents with the USA Signature Rob Caggiano Shadowcaster—a pedigreed music machine engineered to cater to a wide tonal landscape.
Styled after the offset Jackson Outcaster from the mid-1990s, Caggiano’s signature Shadowcaster model features an alder body with a gorgeous 1/8" quilt maple top and a bolt-on maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement to reduce the risk of bending or warping under extreme environmental and climate conditions. Hosting 24 jumbo frets, the 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard is the ideal platform for complex, blazing solos or colossal, lightning-fast rhythm runs. Luminlay® oval side dot inlays will guide your way along the fretboard on the darkest of stages.
A DiMarzio® Air Norton™ humbucking neck pickup radiates warm tone with open dynamic range and clean highs, while the custom DiMarzio® Rob Caggiano Signature bridge pickup is a high-output humbucker that bites with a broad frequency response for brash power chords or fat single-note runs. Tone can be adjusted to preference with five-way blade pickup switching and single volume and tone controls, while a TonePros® TOM-style adjustable bridge with anchored locking tailpiece and Sperzel® sealed die-cast locking tuners work in tandem to provide improved intonation and enhanced sustain. Designed to Caggiano's preference, this signature model is also equipped with Dunlop® flush mount Straplok® strap retainers and Ernie Ball® Slinky nickel plated strings (.009-.046 gauges).
A stunning new addition to the Jackson lineup, Caggiano’s signature Shadowcaster is cloaked in an exquisite Trans Purple Fade finish with a unique Jackson 3x3 matching headstock and chrome hardware.
