Huge Tone Plus Low-noise Electronics

The Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC solidbody electric guitar balances aggressive tone and eminent playability for modern guitarists. The playability is fast and smooth thanks to the Speed Neck profile and the compound-radius ebony fretboard. The tone is tenacious and wide ranging, delivered by a pair of low-noise Seymour Duncan Blackouts humbucking pickups with active electronics. And guitarists at Sweetwater especially dig the set-neck construction, which helps enhance sustain and note definition. Whether you're after an agile instrument for melodic playing or a high-output guitar for grinding rhythms, you'll be impressed with the Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC.

Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Active humbucking pickups for aggressive tone
  • Plays fast across the entire fretboard
  • Sturdy neck that's built to last
Active humbucking pickups for aggressive tone

The Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC guitar is ready to turn practically any amplifier into an aggressive metal machine, thanks to a pair of high-output Seymour Duncan Blackouts humbucking pickups. These pickups also have a very low-noise design, which means you won't be trying to hide unwanted hums and buzzes between notes and chords.

Plays fast across the entire fretboard

As your playing speeds up, the Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC won't get in your way. The compound-radius fretboard is rounder near the nut for easier chords, and it flattens out as you move up the neck for faster melodic playing. And you'll find it's comfortable to play up to the highest frets, thanks to the contour cut heel which helps you transition to the highest registers on the fretboard.

Sturdy neck that's built to last

Your guitar's neck takes a lot of abuse, between your playing and the constant string tension. The Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC boasts a graphite-reinforced maple neck, designed to resist twisting and warping over the years.

Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Designed for aggressive tone and fast playability
  • Wide-ranging, high-output tone from 2 Seymour Duncan Blackouts active humbucking pickups
  • Rigid maple neck is reinforced with graphite for long-term reliability
  • Set-in neck construction enhances sustain and note definition
  • Compound-radius fretboard flattens out toward higher frets for faster playability
  • Perfect for modern metal, with enough sonic flexibility to play in any genre
The Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC plays fast and sounds epic.

Good

Pros: -Excellent fingerboard (ebony), feels fantastic -I love the pickups Cons: -very sloppy finish -susceptible to nut issues I'm very happy with the look and feel of this guitar, for the most part, but my main caution would be that the finish between the body and the neck (where the black finish meets the neck) is pretty sloppy, and evidently that's par for the course with these, so you shouldn't expect very high quality. I sent back the first one that Sweetwater sent (very kind and helpful customer service, might I add) as the binding at the bottom of the neck (which isn't really binding, it's some kind of glue) was pretty sloppily done, there was excess "glue" that was smeared further up the side of the neck. Also, several of the strings were very dull/dead sounding, which I'm attributing to a bad nut. The second one that Sweetwater sent me sounded better (good nut), but had different cosmetic flaws than the first one regarding the binding at the bottom of the side of the neck. Instead of being "smeared" up the neck in a sloppy way, it was actually too thick, increasing the effective width of the neck. You don't notice it unless you're truly focusing and/or looking closely at where the neck meets the body. The black finish is then painted on top of this "glue"...and because the "glue" (which is rather transparent) is so thick I can actually see the edge of the black paint...it's very ugly. But again, it's only something you notice if you're looking/feeling for it. If I were starting my search over again I'd probably steer away from this guitar, but in all honestly I still might end up back on it again as I do really like the ebony fingerboard, and the pickups, and the price...so I guess those outweigh the cosmetic flaws for me.
