This incredible value guitar has some features normally unheard of at this price! The Jackson JS22 has an archtop body which is sleek and modern, as well as a fast, comfortable neck! The fretboard curves dynamically along it's length (we call that a compound radius) so it's super flat closer to the body where most of the melodic action happens and nearer the headstock it's more curved to make it more comfortable and easier to play chords. The Humbucker pickups and powerful and aggressive for rock, metal and punk tones!
Here's what Jackson say about the JS22
Swift, deadly and affordable, Jackson JS Series guitars take an epic leap forward, making it easier than ever to get classic Jackson tone, looks and playability without breaking the bank. Upgraded features such as arched tops, new high-output ceramic-magnet pickups, graphite-reinforced maple necks, bound fingerboards and headstocks, and black hardware deliver more for less.
