Jackson JS22 Monarkh SC Guitar in Satin Black UPGRADED PICKUPS AND TUNERS!!
Jackson JS22 Monarkh SC Guitar in Satin Black.
This guitar has had her pickups upgraded to an awesome set of Warman Destroyers (16K Ohms output in the bridge and 15K in the neck!). Her standard Jackson sealed tuners have also been upgraded to a set of locking tuners which holds her tuning perfectly :)
Over the years Jackson have built up their JS line to be great feeling, sounding and looking guitars that will not break the bank. Now the new Monarkh SC shape is entering the lineup with specs made for high speed, all out metal riffing but with a slightly more traditional look that you may not have seen from Jackson before.
Classic Meets Modern
While it doesn't look like it came from the 50's or 60's the Monarkh body shape using a single cut style that certainly hints at some old school influence. Made out of poplar and cut with a heavily contoured, thin design this body is comfortable while both sitting and standing and doesn't weigh too much so you know you can play it for hours without any fatigue.
If you are playing hard rock or metal styles chances are you probably want to play some super fast solos or riffs that are just not possible on a lot of guitars in this price range. So Jackson being kings of the slim neck guitar set up this guitar with a 1 piece bolt on Maple neck with graphite reinforcement that has their 'speed' carve for great fret access and minimal friction. Best of all they have used a compound radius 12"-16" fretboard that makes playing at the higher end of the fretboard so much easier. This is exactly what you want in a guitar made for metal.
