As distinctive as its namesake, the Pro Series Signature Brandon Ellis Kelly™ comes in a distinct Green Crackle finish with reverse pointed 6-in-line black headstock with green Jackson logo and black hardware.
Through-Body Maple Neck Construction with Graphite Reinforcement
Neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980, allowing for greater playability comfort and enhanced sustain. Neck-through is a method of guitar construction which involves extending the piece of wood used for the neck through the entire length of the body. Graphite-reinforcement rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
