USA Signature Marty Friedman MF-1

Model #: 2803333801

One of the most influential and respected players in the world, Marty Friedman’s impactful and game-changing contributions to heavy metal and guitar in general continue to inspire generations of musicians and music fans to this day. He defined modern guitar playing with Jason Becker in Cacophony, was a key element in the wildly successful rise of thrash pioneers Megadeth, and with his “Marty-esque” improvisations and exotic fusion of Eastern and Western music, has achieved global success with his 13 solo albums.

Jackson is incredibly proud and honored to continue a longstanding relationship with Friedman by collaborating with the virtuoso on the USA Signature Marty Friedman MF-1.

This 24.75”-scale signature guitar is loaded with premium features to match the demanding needs of an elite and intricate player like Friedman.

Premium features include a mahogany body with 3/4” plain maple top, one-piece mahogany set-neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, and a bound 12” radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium wide jumbo frets and mother of pearl block inlays.

Dual Marty Friedman EMG® MF signature humbucking pickups power this single cutaway, delivering a sound that sings as well as screams. Also equipped with two volume and two tone white speed knob controls as well as a three-way toggle switch to wrangle all of the subtle nuances out of your guitar tone, while a TonePros™ adjustable Tune-O-Matic Style bridge with Gotoh® stop tailpiece and Schaller® locking tuners provide state-of-the-art tuning stability and sustain.

Available in Gloss Black with White Bevels, black hardware and a reverse 3x3 (3 over, 3 under) AT-1 headstock. Comes with a hardshell case.
