Jackson has teamed up with Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor to create the unexpectedly traditional MJ Series Signature Misha Mansoor So-Cal 2PT guitar.
It's built with a basswood body and a bolt-on caramelized maple neck with graphite reinforcement and an oiled back finish. Its 20”-radius caramelized maple fingerboard features rolled edges and 22 jumbo stainless steel frets with white dot inlays outlined in Luminlay and black side dots.
Sounds on the guitar come by way of a Bare Knuckle Ragnarok bridge humbucker and Bare Knuckle Trilogy single-coil middle and neck pickups. These are controlled by a five-position pickup blade switch, single volume and tone controls, and parchment bobbins.
Other visual appointments on the guitar include a white pickguard, chrome hardware, and parchment skirt-style control knobs.
The Jackson Misha Mansoor So-Cal 2PT will be available in May – in a Daphne Blue finish with a color-matched licensed Fender Strat headstock – for $2,699.
