Just by looking at the Jackson USA Select WR1 Warrior you can tell that this guitar is meant to rock hard and heavy. Its heavily angled body matches the rest of the guitar perfectly to make an instrument that will not only look great at any metal gig but also feels great to play at high speeds. Nothing quite feels like a Jackson and if you need speed and power well you can't go wrong with this.
Simple Metal Joy
While some guitars are bulky and heavy to deliver a crushing low end heavy tone the Jackson WR1 is surprisingly light. This guitar is more focused on clarity and articulation rather than low end brutality so you know that everything you play will be heard by the crowd. Made with a thin alder body and a quatersawn maple neck the WR1 feels amazing in the hands. Plus with a compound radius ebony fretboard nothing is getting in the way of your super fast lead lines and quality solos.
Very Hot Duncan Pickups
Quite often you will find guitars made for metal that use lower output pickups to give you better definition while playing. This guitar flips that rule on its head by having a Seymour Duncan Invader SH-8 in the bridge position and a Full Shred SH-10 in the neck. These pickups have seriously high outputs and sound their best being chucked through a cranked high gain stack. While they do cool down nicely to get great hard rock tones and even some cool clean sounds as well these pickups love it when the amp hits 11.
What makes this Jackson so cool and really the top of its class is how everything comes together. Everything has been carefully chosen to keep great playability, articulate sound and high gain tone heaven. That includes the hardware with a Floyd Rose Original Locking 2-Point tremolo and matching nut this guitar is not only a dream to play but also sounds incredible when you start to really use the tremolo system. No matter how insane you go with it this tremolo system will not go out of tune so you can worry about what you are playing.
