Jackson

Description

One of the most influential and respected players in the world, Marty Friedman's impactful and game-changing contributions to heavy metal and guitar in general continue to inspire generations of musicians and music fans to this day. He defined modern guitar playing with Jason Becker in Cacophony, was a key element in the wildly successful rise of thrash pioneers Megadeth, and with his "Marty-esque" improvisations and exotic fusion of Eastern and Western music, has achieved global success with his 13 solo albums.

Jackson is incredibly proud and honored to continue a longstanding relationship with Friedman by collaborating with the virtuoso on the X Series Signature Marty Friedman MF-1.

This 24.75"-scale signature model is loaded with great features to match the demanding needs of an elite and intricate player like Friedman—but at an affordable price.

Some of its fine features include a mahogany body with 3/4" maple top, one-piece mahogany set-neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, bound 12" radius laurel fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays.

Marty Friedman dual EMG MF signature humbucking pickups deliver a sound that sings and screams. This axe is also equipped with two volume and two tone white speed controls as well as a three-way toggle switch to wrangle all of the subtle nuances out of your guitar tone, as well as a Jackson compensated and adjustable bridge and die-cast locking tuners for increased sustain and tuning stability. Case sold separately.
