Jackson Add Several New Models to the 2012 X Series
Jackson Guitars need no introduction, being the
choice of axe for top names like Randy Rhoads,
Mark Morton (Lamb of God),
Corey Beaulieu (Trivium) and
Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden), from
the Kelly to their Soloist, these are synonymous with the rock and
metal genre, and for good reason.
Jackson have added 11 top of the line axes to its 2012
catalogue. Each one carefully designed to exceed metal players'
high performance needs.
The line includes eight new Soloist arch tops (known as SLAT
guitars), four extended scale seven string models, two limited
edition Kelly models and a new signature model for Machine Head
axeman Phil Demmel.

Also new to the X series are the Limited Edition KEXMG and
KEXTMG Kelly models. Available in Transparent Black and Black with
White Bevels, the KEXMG Kelly features a basswood body (quilt maple
top on trans finishes), three-piece through-body maple neck,
compound-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and
classic Jackson Shark Fin inlays, EMG® 81 (bridge) and 85 (neck)
pickups, and a Floyd Rose Special bridge.
The Limited Edition KEXTMG Kelly, available in Matte Black and
Tobacco Sunburst, offers the same features as the Limited Edition
KEXMG, minus the Floyd Rose Special bridge which is replaced by a
string-through-body Tone Pros Tune-O-Matic bridge.
And last but certainly not least is the PDX-2 Demmelition King V
artist signature model honouring Machine Head guitarist and master
of shred Phil Demmel. Built to Demmel's exact specifications, the
upgraded PDX-2 now features a three-piece through-body maple neck,
EMG HZ pickups, Floyd Rose® Special bridge, 24 jumbo frets, bound
compound-radius, rosewood fingerboard with Shark Fin inlays, two
volume controls and a three-way blade pickup selector switch.
