The guitar also features a licensed Jackson reverse pointed 6-in-line headstock.

The Limited Edition Super Stock Model 1888 features an HS pickup configuration consisting of a DiMarzio Super Distortion DP218 neck pickup and a DiMarzio Super Distortion bridge pickup, both with black covers.

A three-way blade switch, domed volume and tone control knobs, a Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system and black hardware also come standard.
