Description & Specs

Modern metal legend Chris Broderick — former Megadeth and current Act of Defiance guitarist — has teamed with Jackson to design an affordable, high-quality, shred-ready guitar. The Jackson Pro Series Chris Broderick FR7 Soloist is a modern metal player's dream. With a 25.5-inch scale, a resonant mahogany body topped with gorgeous poplar burl, an oil-finished maple neck, and a lightning-fast laurel compound-radius fingerboard, you'll be free to explore and hone your own metal style. In addition, a pair of Broderick-designed custom DiMarzio direct-mounted humbucking pickups gives you a massive array of tonal possibilities. Modern metal players here at Sweetwater love the sound and feel of the Jackson Pro Series Chris Broderick FR7 Soloist.
