Note- Picture is of the bolt-on neck version of the Select B7
The Jackson USA Select B7 is a seriously cool 7 string shred machine! Loaded up with the latest hardware you will not believe how wonderfully this guitar sounds and plays.
Smooth Slim Design
While a lot of Jackson guitars have been designed around big sharp shapes; the B7 is a much more reserved design that can fit in on almost any stage. Built with an alder body and a neck thru quatersawn maple neck with graphite reinforcement this guitar is not only tonally beautiful but also extremely stable. Finish off this guitar with a compound radius ebony fretboard and you have a stunning guitar that will not get in your way.
Direct Mount DiMarzio Pickups
When it comes to extended range guitars pickups are an interesting thing as they need to be powerful enough to keep the low 'B' audible but clear enough so it doesn't just turn into rumble. Some of the pickups that get this spot on are DiMarzio D pickups. Fitted with a DP-720 and a DP-719 pickups this guitar has a smooth enough sound to suit clean sounds while being hot enough to handle tonnes of gain as well. So no matter where you need the extended range this guitar can fit in.
The Finishing Touches
To make sure this guitar is tuning stable and feels great to play Jackson have made sure this isn't just a modified 6 string and have added in some cool new features. This includes an extended range 27" scale length so you get fantastic string tension and a set of Grocer Locking Tuners with Jackson HT7 hardtail bridge so that once your guitar is in tune it will not budge.
