Boston-based metal titans Revocation are known for their spine-shaking death metal sound, and Jackson have given frontman Dave Davidson his very own signature guitar so that he can continue to carve his intense style.
Based on the ultra-modern Warrior shape, Davidson's WR7 signature model features a Mahogany body, adorned with a stunning Ash top that gives this instrument a unique and classy aesthetic overall.
This 7-string has other premium features too, with its vibrant-sounding Maple neck topped with an elegant Ebony fretboard. A smooth oil finish allows you to play super-fast up and down the neck, a must for the frantic and unpredictable nature of Davidson's music.
Electronics & Hardware
Davidson's signature DiMarzio Imperium pickups bring the thunder, wired to ensure a punchy mid-range even with the craziest of distorted settings. A 1000 Series Floyd Rose tremolo system keeps your tuning in check, whilst letting you also perform chaotic divebombs and flutter effects.
Here's what Jackson say about the Pro Series Dave Davidson Signature Warrior WR7 in Distressed Ash:
Over the last decade, Boston-based act Revocation has firmly established itself as one of the finest in today’s death metal and thrash metal genres. Heralded as one of modern metal’s elite guitarists, frontman Dave Davidson is also the driving force behind the band as it continues to evolve and challenge conventional metal norms.
Jackson continues its storied history of working with the best in the business with the creation of Davidson’s Pro Series Signature Warrior™ WR7 model, an instrument built for taking creative liberties and running the metal gamut.
Davidson’s take on Jackson’s revered angular shape is in a 7-string form featuring a 25.5” scale length, mahogany body with ash top and one-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, providing the utmost stability against the rigors and ravages of the road. The oiled neck back finish allows for smooth playing feel, while its 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
To meet Revocation’s propensity for building rich, complex chord voicings, Davidson teamed with DiMarzio® to create his own signature Imperium pickups, which power this signature Pro Series axe with dynamic tone and punchy clarity. Designed so that all notes ring through, from full-bodied, tight low end while using high gain amps to crystal clear cleans on nondistorted channels, these pickups are also highly responsive to harmonics. This axe also features a single tone control, a single volume control with push/pull coil split for single-coil tone and a three-way toggle switch.
Dive-bomb or flutter at will with the Floyd Rose® FRT 1000 series double-locking tremolo bridge system, recessed for pick hand comfort and providing superior string stability, sustain and dynamic tremolo action.
Dark and menacing with its Distressed Ash finish, black body, neck and headstock binding and black hardware, this signature Warrior is primed and ready for battle.
