The Jackson JS Series Monarkh SC JS22 Electric Guitar in Transparent Red combines a hard rocking attitude alongside timeless style in this powerful guitar. Whether you're picking up the guitar for the first time, or are a seasoned veteran of the touring circuit, you are bound to fall for this awesome model.
The JS Series Monarkh SC JS22 is shaped to a recognisable single-cutaway profile, establishing its rock credentials from the off. Built using mahogany, this creates a substantial mid to low-end tonal foundation that is the bedrock of its weighty tone. Paired with a quilt maple top, the combination is a wide ranging tonal arsenal that gives this model incredible potential both in the studio and on the stage. The top is finished in a beautiful transparent red, which has been treated to a protective layer of gloss to prevent premature damage and to enable it to age gracefully.
Reinforced neck design
Fitted to the body via a solid bolt-on construction is a sleek maple neck, which has been shaped to Jackson's speed neck backshape profile for a more comfortable feel in the hand. Jackson know how important it is to preserve the structural integrity of the neck to guarantee longevity. With this in mind, they employ graphite reinforcement to prevent twisting and warping so that you get that same great feeling every time. The satin finish ensures your hand glides along the entire length of the neck smoothly.
Partnered with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which has 22 jumbo frets that are decorated with dot position inlays. Jackson's customary compound radius fingerboard creates a natural feel for the fingers as they navigate the playing surface. Paired with the speed neck profile, you can rest assured that every effort has been made to establish a lightning fast playing feel.
Jackson high output humbuckers
The Jackson JS Series Monarkh SC JS22 is equipped with a pair of their high output humbuckers, which generate a punchy and defiant output that puts a wide range of tones at the ready. Everything from crisp cleans that could cut through glass to headbanger-worthy aggressive chunk is present and correct. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a master volume pot, a mater tone pot, and a three-way pickups selector switch to keep everything simple yet effective.
The body is fitted with Jackson's compensated and adjustable bridge with anchored tailpiece, a partnership that creates a seamless connection between strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain. Adjusting string height is easy, enabling you to setup your guitar's action to your own specifications. Jackson's sealed die-cast tuning machines preserve tuning integrity rigidly throughout the most demanding of performances.
