Neck-through-body models feature hand-rubbed oil neck finishes and graphite neck reinforcement rods for the ultimate in sleek playability and rock-solid sustain and stability. Bolt-on-neck models feature an innovative “wrap-around” three-bolt neck joint with remarkable strength, style and feel.

Floyd Rose® Tremolos, Compensated Jackson Hi-Mass Hardtail and String-Through-Body Bridges

Jackson Pro Series guitars are built with the very best parts for professional tone, stability and durability for stage and studio alike. Nowhere is this more evident than the bridge. Pro Series guitars feature Floyd Rose® 1000 Series tremolos, Jackson Hi-Mass hardtail and string-through-body bridges.

Compound-radius fingerboards

Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative 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.

Gorgeous Jackson Style

Pro Series models present Jackson players with an alluring assortment of stylistic features and options. These include ebony, maple and rosewood fingerboards; sharkfin, shark eye block, offset dot and “piranha” fingerboard inlays; deep solid colors and beautifully figured tops with matching headstocks.

X SERIES

Loaded with Pure Jackson DNA and that “X” Factor

Think classic Jackson designs, outstanding tone, ultra-fast playability and highly affordable value for 21st-century guitarists. Built with the very latest in Jackson expertise and innovation, X Series models feature hot humbucking pickups that deliver well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids and crunchy highs. More than the sum of their parts, these mid-range level guitars are steeped with an “X” factor that makes them perfect modern shred machines for a whole new generation of no-holds barred guitarists.

X Series models offer a selection of EMG®, Seymour Duncan® and Duncan Designed humbucking pickups for unparalleled tonal versatility from clean to heavily distorted. All tremolo-equipped models feature Floyd Rose® Special bridges.

Graphite-Reinforced Neck-Through Design

True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980. For greater playability and sustain, X Series models feature a neck-through design usually reserved for much more expensive instruments. Further, graphite support rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.

Compound-Radius Fingerboards

Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative 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.

Gorgeous Jackson Style

The X Series presents a wealth of distinctive Jackson stylistic options from the subdued to the striking. Sharkfin or “piranha” fingerboard inlays. The traditional Jackson six-in-line headstock or an AT headstock with tuners on either side. Deep solid colors or beautifully figured tops. The X Series has something for everyone.
