EMG® 81/60 Humbucking Pickups
An active EMG 81 humbucking bridge pickup will deliver blistering tone and make your leads slice right through even the densest mix, while the EMG 60 humbucking neck pickup packs plenty of output with a balance of thick, boosted mids, big lows and singing highs. Featuring close aperture coils, similar to a mini-humbucker, the EMG 60 produces rich harmonic overtones with plenty of sustain and has a full treble response and loads of output great for distinct single-note solos.

12"-16" Compound Radius Ebony 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.
