July 2, 2020 – Jackson Guitars has announced that they are releasing a new and updated version of the USA Signature Adrian Smith San Dimas® SD Model Guitar.
According to Jackson: “Solidly built to withstand Maiden’s relentless touring regiment, the USA Signature Adrian Smith San Dimas® SDM features a resonant, lightweight alder body and a bolt-on quartersawn maple neck with a hand-rubbed urethane back finish for smooth playability and a pair of graphite-reinforcement rods that refuse to budge, no matter the environmental stress it’s exposed to. Featuring 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays, the 12″-16″ compound radius maple fingerboard is the ideal platform for heavy chording and fast, ripping solos, while a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel allows for quick and easy neck relief tweaks.
A DiMarzio® Super Distortion® DP100 humbucker in the bridge adds the perfect blend of power and tone, with thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs, while Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Single-Coil Strat® middle and neck pickups deliver authentic, noise-free Stratocaster® snap with incredible dynamic and magnetic response. A five-way blade selector switch along with single volume and tone controls open up endless tonal possibilities, while the Floyd Rose® Original double-locking tremolo system keeps the guitar in tune through the roughest playing, set after set.
Groomed for high performance, this signature axe is wrapped in a class Snow White finish with black pickguard, black hardware and licensed Fender® Strat headstock.”
