Djent forefather and speed demon Misha Mansoor has gained widespread acclaim as the mastermind behind the axe-centric progressive metal band Periphery. He’s known to impress the most discerning of metal fans with his steadfast, fleet fingered technique, and his personally designed collection of Jackson signature Juggernaut instruments is sure to set any shredder’s tone ablaze.
For 2017, Jackson adds a new Pro Series version of the seven-string Misha Mansoor Juggernaut HT, offering many similar features as his U.S.A. model with a price tag that is easier on the wallet.
The Pro Juggernaut HT7FM features a 26.5 inch-scale length, basswood body with a striking flame-maple top, one-piece bolt-on maple speed neck with graphite reinforcement for rock-solid stability and wrap-around heel for comfort, 16 inch flat radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets, offset dot inlays, Luminlay side-dots, and convenient thumb wheel truss rod butt adjust.
Not willing to sacrifice tone, Mansoor spent considerable time working with Jackson to develop new, killer-sounding Jackson MM1 pickups, which can be shaped with a master volume and master tone control with push/pull select and five-way blade switch. Also features a Jackson HT7 string-through-body hardtail bridge, Jackson die-cast locking tuners, black hardware and reversed Jackson 4x3 (4 over, 3 under) AT-1 headstock.
