When Misha Mansoor stops by your store, you should prepare for a few things…a ton of laughs, gear-talk, and a whole-lotta djent! Well we got the full dosage when he came down to our showroom to check out a few guitars, and thankfully for you guys, he even signed a couple of his signature models! One of them is this Limited Edition Jackson Juggernaut 8!
This very limited (only 30 pieces made worldwide!) 8-String Misha Mansoor Juggernaut guitar first unveiled at the 2016 NAMM show. This 8-string in its all-black finish looks like a stealth fighter that’s ready to drop low-frequency bombs on your ears! With a body shape inspired by the Dinky, the Juggernaut features more radically sculpted horns and a contoured neck heel for amazing upper fret access. The neck is constructed from quartersawn Maple with Graphite reinforcement for unparalleled stability and is contoured to Mansoor’s exact specifications. The 24-fret Ebony fingerboard features a 20″ radius for fast, comfortable playing, and is inlaid with Piranha inlays. Dual direct-mount Bare Knuckle Juggernaut pickups are wired to a 5-way switch for a wide variety of tonal options, then to a master Volume control and master Tone control with a push-pull Tone bypass switch. This guitar was signed by Misha on the back plate of the body. He even played a few riffs on it!
