Contemporary guitarists require tonal versatility and punchy clarity to keep pace with the rapid twists and turns of modern metal. A pair of Seymour Duncan® Blackouts AHB-1 active humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions provide all the aggression you’ll ever need, throwing out a hotter-than-average signal with up to 14dB less noise—perfect for driving high gain amplifiers with thick, grunting distortion. The active preamp was deliberately engineered for high performance, as is the 12"-16" compound radius fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets for Jackson’s familiar effortless playing feel. The one-piece maple neck capped with Jackson’s 3x3 AT-1 headstock conceals a pair of graphite reinforcement rods, providing stiffness and high stability, guarding against temperature- and humidity-induced bending and warping. The Jackson® fully adjustable radius compensated bridge creates perfect intonation along the entire length of the neck to ensure complex chords ring true while the anchored tailpiece and Jackson die-cast locking tuning machines work in harmony for tuning stability that can withstand a good pick-hand thrashing without shifting.
