When Chris Broderick joined a revitalized Megadeth in 2008, fans were awestruck by his dazzling thrash fretwork. Jackson now honors this modern metal master with the Chris Broderick Soloist, in six-string and seven-string models.

Working with Jackson Custom Shop Master Builder Mike Shannon, Broderick designed his own special take on the venerable Soloist, with an offset arch-top mahogany body and quilt maple top (with matching headstock). Features include quartersawn maple neck with quilt maple binding and Floyd Rose® nut, natural body and headstock binding, ebony fingerboard with 12" radius and 24 jumbo stainless steel frets, Broderick-designed Custom DiMarizio® direct-mounted humbucking neck and bridge pickups, kill switch, recessed Floyd Rose® Pro bridge, black hardware, Planet Waves® Auto-Trim tuners, side-mounted Rhoads jack, Ernie Ball® strap locks and G&G case.
