Brimming with technology and style, the Jackson Pro Series Monarkh SC Ash is an amped-up, hot-rodded metal machine, aimed at the demanding player who needs a no-compromise performer. Enjoy unparalleled consistency and tonal variety at any volume level, from the quietest whisper to a mighty roar, while experiencing the bleeding edge of modern guitar craftsmanship and construction.

The Pro Monarkh SC features a 24.75" scale length, mahogany body with an arched maple cap and ash top, and a speedy one-piece set maple neck with a scarf joint and pair of graphite reinforcement rods, providing stiffness and high stability to guard against temperature- and humidity-induced bending and warping. Enjoy Jackson’s familiar effortless playing feel with a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard featuring 22 jumbo frets and pearloid ghostfin inlays.

The modern-day metal guitarist requires tonal versatility and super clarity to keep up with the rapid twists and turns of modern metal. A classic Seymour Duncan humbucking combo delivers all that and more, with a JB bridge pickup for heavy riffage and a ’59 neck pickup for creamy leads. The Jackson compensated and fully adjustable TOM-style bridge creates perfect intonation along the entire length of the neck to ensure complex chords ring true, while the anchored tailpiece and die-cast locking tuning machines work in harmony for tuning stability that can withstand a good pick-hand thrashing without shifting.

Cloaked in classic Jackson read more style, the Pro Monarkh SC Ash is available in Charcoal Ash and features black hardware and black binding around the body, neck and 3x3 AT-1 headstock. read less

First impression was that the finish was not as nice as i was expecting it to be in person. Overall just by examining the looks and quality of the craftsmen ship Id say this guitar is more of a $400 (new value) not $800. It came with really cheap tin sounding strings. Went to replaced the strings and realized one of the locking tuning pegs is defective and wont unlock. The neck is a nice fast neck but the frets themselves need to be shaved down. They're too high and too sharp for fast playing.. I didnt even bother to plug this guitar in because I already decided I want to exchange it.
