Signature Modern Metal Guitar from Jackson
Modern metal legend Chris Broderick, former Megadeth and current Act of Defiance guitarist, has teamed up with Jackson to design an affordable, high-quality metal-ready guitar. The Jackson Chris Broderick Pro Series Soloist HT6 solidbody electric guitar is a modern metal player’s dream. With a 25.5″ scale, a resonant mahogany body, oil-finished maple neck, and 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.
Compound-radius fingerboard provides the best of both worlds
The Jackson Chris Broderick Pro Series Soloist HT6 features a compound-radius laurel fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 12″ radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed chord work. Up top, a 16″ radius lays it all out flat for effortless, low-action high-speed runs with monumental string bends without fretting out — the best of both worlds.
Neck made for metal style
From bow to stern, the Jackson Chris Broderick Pro Series Soloist HT6 is set up for mammoth sustain. You get a through-body maple neck — a proven sustain-enhancing design that lets you explore your own metal style and attack. Top that off with custom DiMarzio direct-mounted humbuckers, and you have a recipe for slippery-pitch expressiveness with rock-solid tuning stability and endless sustain.
A pair of Broderick-designed custom DiMarzio direct-mounted humbucking neck and bridge pickups gives you all the metal punch and bite you need. In addition, a volume control with push-pull coil splitting unlocks even more tonal options while the tone control’s push-pull switch enables the tone circuit and puts you in control of a massive array of tonal stylings and attack. Finally, a mini-toggle kill switch allows for the stuttering effects that have become a mainstay of modern metal.
