In the world of heavy-metal, six strings are sometimes just not enough. For this reason, it's really no surprise that a company as synonymous with the metal genre as Jackson is would specialize in a wide array of extended range electric guitars. Within this section, you'll find more than enough stunning examples of what they offer in the vicinity of extended range guitars. From tobacco-burst 7-string models to pitch-black 8-string axes, any one of the extended range guitars in Jackson's catalog will make you stand out from the pack and have your killer shred skills noticed by an audience.
As mentioned, Jackson is a name that's no stranger to the metal scene. In fact, Jackson's roster of top-recording artists includes many legends such as Scott Ian of Anthrax, Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith, Randy Rhoads, and many more. In other words, you can take comfort in knowing that when you own an electric guitar from Jackson, you're in possession of an instrument that was designed with the same dedication to top-quality as the ones used by the pros.
So with that in mind, what Jackson extended range model is right for you? Well, if it's a new 7-string that you want, take a look at the SLATTXMG3-7 Soloist in slime green. Featuring EMG pickups and a tune-o- matic bridge, this beauty boasts an arched Soloist basswood body, and a three-piece maple neck with graphite reinforcement for ultimate stability. No doubt, when you're armed with this beast, nothing will get in the way of the soloist that's waiting to be unleased from inside you. Or, if it's an 8-string model you're searching for, then the SLATHX 3-8 quilted maple top electric would make a terrific choice for any headbanger. With its 24 jumbo frets, Seymour Duncan pickups, and Piranha Pearloid inlays, the SLATHX 3-8 is the perfect match for your ferocious music tastes.
When Jackson began their musical journey back in 1980, it didn't take long before their guitars were being championed by musicians from around the world. Today, Jackson's influence is very obvious in countless hard-rock and metal genres, and their extended range electric guitars are ideal for anyone who wants to expand on their virtuosity as a player.
