EMP Features – The new Scott Ian Jackson Anarchy Soloist Electric Guitar has now been unleashed! (And we are giving you the chance to WIN one of them…plus Bloodstock Tickets and other awesome stuff!)
Scott Ian is a veritable thrash godfather who has made a living out of pummeling audiences worldwide for decades with his huge sound and formidable guitar chops. New for 2015- The Jackson X Series Scott Ian Anarchy Soloist Electric Guitar is a homage to the venerable Anthrax guitarist! Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find out how to WIN one of these lovelies in our latest competition!
The Anarchy Soloist proudly depicts the Anarchy “Thraxaram” graphic in colour. The body is made of basswood and features neck-thru construction for improved sustain and access to all 24 frets. The neck has a rosewood fingerboard with custom lightning bolt inlays and a compound radius for maximum playing comfort. A single, strategically-placed Duncan Designed humbucker with volume control inspires unrestrained power and tone
Name-brand pickups and hardware
Jackson X series models feature a selection of EMG® and Duncan Designed™ humbucking pickups for unparalleled tonal versatility from clean to heavily distorted. All tremolo-equipped models feature Floyd Rose® Special bridges.
Graphite-reinforced neck-through design
True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980. For greater playability and sustain, X Series models feature a neck-through design usually reserved for much more expensive instruments. Further, graphite support rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
X Series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
Gorgeous Jackson style
The X Series presents a wealth of distinctive Jackson stylistic options from the subdued to the striking. Sharkfin or “piranha” fingerboard inlays. The traditional Jackson six-in-line headstock or an AT headstock with tuners on either side. Deep solid colours or beautifully figured tops. The X Series has something for everyone!
As if this wasn’t exciting enough, we are giving you the chance to WIN one of these beautiful guitars and a whole bunch of other cool stuff!:
