Jeff Loomis has seared his mark on multiple subgenres of metal with his smooth technique at breakneck speeds. His rhythmical style became central to the Seattle-based progressive metal band Nevermore's sound, while his solo albums tore apart the technical metal scene and featured intricate fretboard skills laced with soaring solos. As the current guitarist for the world renowned Swedish melodic death metal act Arch Enemy, he continues to build upon his legacy with the most astonishing riffs the genre has ever heard. Jackson's collaboration with the prominent guitarist continues in the form of the all-new Pro Series Signature Jeff Loomis Kelly Ash.

This aggressive signature axe features a poplar body with a sandblasted ash top finished in Black with white binding for a distressed and menacing look. Through-body maple neck construction creates grater sustain and includes graphite reinforcement for the utmost stability against the rigors and ravages of the road. Shaped for speed, its bound 12"-16" compound radius ebony fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets and stylish pearloid sharkfin inlays. Luminlay side dots will help you find your way along the fretboard even on the darkest of metal stages, while a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes for quick and painless neck relief tweaks.

Dynamic Seymour Duncan Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts humbucking pickups give this metal monolith its roar of clear, articulate tones even when under the heaviest distortion. The neck pickup read more delivers smooth, glassy leads, while the bridge pickup sinks its teeth into more aggressive tones and sustain while maintaining its legato.

This metal behemoth's other premium features include a single volume control, three-way toggle switch, Floyd Rose 1500 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, Jackson die-cast tuners, Jackson's famed pointy tilt-back headstock and black hardware.

"Love this guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I wanted another backup for my main Kelly (2001 USA series) and I fell in love with the look of this guitar. The grain of the sandblasted ash is gorgeous, and the continuation onto the headstock with the raised metal logo makes it look and feel premium. The neck has a satin/matte finish which plays super fast.Saw the specs and was intrigued by the price. I recently switched to 8 guage strings which makes my guitars play fast and smooth and still packs a heavy chug. This guitar pairs perfectly with 8s. And the tone is killer. There were no issues upon arrival and just needed a slight neck adjustment for C drop out the box (I also love the easy truss rod access). And the fretwork didn't need any tinkering which was a relief. Jackson seems to be getting back into making quality instruments. This is a bang for your buck guitar and its worth every cent.
Sound
The Blackouts pack a killer output and sounds great for metal
Features
Getting rid of the tone knob was a plus. Could have used a regular Floyd, but the 1500 gets the job done.
Ease of Use
Great playability and sound.
Quality
Very well made. I play it almost as much as my USA series

Definitely worth the price
Manufacturer Support
