Megadeth's 2008 recruit and axeman extraordinaire Chris Broderick landed his own signature model back in 2011. In collaboration with Jackson Custom Shop Master Builder Mike Shannon, modern metal master, Chris Broderick designed his own special take on the venerable Soloist. The USA Signature Chris Broderick Soloist is a sophisticated riffing machine loaded with the premium features needed to keep up with the most demanding music produced today.
Those premium features include 25.5" scale, offset arch top mahogany body, premium 5/8" quilt maple top, through-body quartersawn maple neck, 12" flat radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo stainless steel frets, binding around the body, neck and headstock, direct mount DiMarzio Chris Broderick signature pickups, Floyd Rose Lo-Pro tremolo bridge, Planet Waves™ Auto-Trim locking tuners, Ernie Ball strap locks, push/pull volume with coil split, push/pull tone control, kill switch and matching reverse AT-1 headstock.
This Jackson was custom built by Mike Shannon for Chris Broderick and used to record on Megadeth's "Thirteen" and "Super Collider" records and to tour around the world!
This Jackson was part of the instrument collection at Essex Recording Studios, UK.
