X Series Signature Adrian Smith SDXQ, Maple Fingerboard, Transparent Green
Iron Maiden is one of the most successful and influential metal bands ever, thanks to the molten yet melodic guitar work of Adrian Smith. With timeless songwriting and thrilling live performances, Maiden continues to record, tour internationally and rock stadiums everywhere with electricity.
Jackson honors Smith’s metal prowess with the X Series Signature Adrian Smith SDXQM, featuring a basswood San Dimas® body with elegant quilt maple top, bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and a 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, black dot inlays and licensed Fender® Strat® headstock.
The SDXQM also offers an HSS pickup configuration and is powered by a Jackson high-output humbucking bridge pickup, Jackson single-coil middle pickup and single-coil neck pickup with five-way blade switching and master volume and tone controls. A non-recessed Floyd Rose® Special double-locking 2-point tremolo bridge will withstand all the abuse you throw at it, providing rock-solid stability and stable tuning.
Available in a Transparent Green finish with a white pickguard and black hardware, this beauty looks as sharp as it sounds.
HSS Configuration: Jackson High-Output Humbucking Bridge Pickup, Jackson Single-Coil Middle Pickup
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.

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.
