When prolific guitarist Chris Broderick (of Act of Defiance and Megadeth fame) first came to Jackson to design his own signature model, he had very exacting demands in mind for his take on the venerable Soloist™. Finding a more-than-willing partner up for the challenge, Broderick coined the longstanding high-performance guitar giant as the “company that could.”
The results of the collaboration are sophisticated riffing machines loaded with the premium features needed to keep up with the most demanding music produced today.
The Jackson Pro Series Signature Chris Broderick Soloist HT6 is a 25.5" scale electric guitar featuring a resonant mahogany body and one-piece through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement for rock-solid sustain and stability. Its 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is ideal for all playing styles, comfortable for both low riffing and soaring leads.
Contemporary guitarists require tonal versatility and punchy clarity to keep pace with the rapid twists and turns of today’s metal. A pair of Broderick-designed custom DiMarzio direct mounted humbucking neck and bridge pickups meet any challenge head-on, cranking out monstrous tone that will pin your ears back. The volume control conceals a push/pull switch for coil-splitting, unlocking even more tonal options while the tone control’s push/pull switch enables the tone circuit. A mini- toggle killswitch allows for the stuttering effects that have become integral in modern metal. The Jackson Single-String hardtail bridge creates perfect intonation along the entire length of the neck to ensure complex chords ring true, working in harmony with the Jackson-branded sealed die-cast locking machines for tuning stability that can withstand a good pick-hand thrashing without shifting.
A brutal beast available in Metallic Blue or Metallic Black with black hardware, the Jackson Pro Series Chris Broderick Soloist HT6 also gets an added touch of elegance with a matching reverse 3x3 AT-1 headstock and single-ply black body and neck binding. Dunlop strap locks also ensure your axe won’t go flying during onstage acrobatics.
