Triple threat Rob Caggiano has made a name for himself as an acclaimed musician, songwriter and producer. Currently the lead guitarist for Danish heavy metal-rockabilly band Volbeat, Caggiano has also snagged five Grammy nominations as a record producer/guitarist and has worked with a diverse array of artist including Anthrax, The Damned Things, Cradle of Filth and Bruce Springsteen.
Jackson is thrilled to honor his expansive talents with the Pro Series Signature Rob Caggiano Shadowcaster—a pedigreed music machine engineered to cater to a wide tonal landscape. Styled after the offset Jackson Outcaster from the mid-1990s, Caggiano’s signature Shadowcaster model features a resonant mahogany body. The bolt-on maple neck has a scarf joint and graphite reinforcement to reduce the risk of bending or warping under extreme environmental and climate conditions, while the 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets creates the ideal platform for complex, blazing solos or colossal, lightning-fast rhythm runs.
A DiMarzio Air Norton humbucking neck pickup radiates warm tone with open dynamic range and clean highs, while the custom DiMarzio Rob Caggiano Signature bridge pickup is a high-output humbucker that bites with a broad frequency response for brash power chords or fat single-note runs. Tone can be adjusted to preference with five-way blade pickup switching and single volume and tone controls, while a Jackson TOM-style adjustable bridge with anchored tailpiece and sealed die-cast locking tuners work in tandem to provide improved intonation and enhanced sustain.
A stunning new addition to the Jackson lineup, Caggiano’s signature Shadowcaster is cloaked in an exquisite Purple Metallic finish with a unique Jackson 3x3 matching headstock and chrome hardware.
