Wow! Check out what just arrived! If you thought you knew exactly what kind of solidbody guitars Jackson builds, a look at this beauty will be a revelation! Why? Well, first off, the Jackson Solo Custom Koa LTD is a true limited-edition instrument, lovingly crafted by Jackson’s Custom Shop! The drop-dead gorgeous bound top is constructed of rare Hawaiian koa – a timber that is only found on the Hawaiian Islands and nowhere else on the planet! So right there, you’re off to a great start. But to deliver the aggressive Jackson tone you know and love, there are a pair of premium, high-output, custom-wound Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups installed, so this baby sounds as good as it looks. Just plug it in and stand back! And given how difficult koa is to get these days, we can easily see this being an extremely collectible guitar somewhere down the road! But look closer and you’ll see that the “shark’s tooth” position markers on the ebony fingerboard are real mother-of-pearl with stunning paua abalone purfling that shine in a veritable rainbow of colors!
The Jackson Solo Custom Koa LTD plays like a dream! It has a lightweight alder body (so you can play for hours without fatigue) and a hard rock maple neck with a comfortable, blazing fast profile, so your hand will literally fly up and down the bound fingerboard (which also happens to offer easy access to the uppermost frets for solos)! Of course, you’ll want to be able to bend notes (or entire chords) up or down with ease, so Jackson installed a genuine, gold-plated Floyd Rose vibrato bridge/tailpiece combination. There’s also a master volume, master tone, and a 3-way pickup selector toggle switch. Down at the other end of the neck, the trademark headstock has a flame maple overlay, a real abalone Jackson logo, and gold-plated tuners with faux pearl buttons. Each of these limited-edition guitars is constructed by hand in the Jackson Custom Shop, and there’s no telling when the next one will arrive. If this beauty appeals to you, we’d strongly suggest you contact your Sweetwater Sales Engineer about purchasing this one, particularly since you can get no payments and no interest for six months if you put it on your Sweetwater Musician’s All-Access Platinum Card! Who knows when the planets will align again for such a killer deal?
