From bridge to headstock, Custom Select Series Guitars and basses represent Jackson’s top-line best. Nowhere else will you find U.S.-built production-model shred machines of such stellar design, peerless performance and superior craftsmanship, brought to life by the best luthiers and builders in the business. Of all Jackson’s most acclaimed and beloved instrument families, the Custom Select Series puts the best of Jackson’s best in your hands.
From time-honored neck-through models such as the Soloist and Rhoads to the bolt-on classic DK1, Jackson Custom Select guitars feature ultra-stable quartersawn maple necks and the finest ebony fingerboards with mother-of-pearl and real abalone inlays.
Jackson Custom Select guitars feature the finest components available. From top to bottom—from the Floyd Rose® tremolo system to the premium tuners and every part in between—every single element of a Jackson Custom Select guitar is nothing less than the best. The best pickups. The best hardware. The best inlay work, binding and bevels. The best finishes and graphics, from the elegant to the insane. All your call, and all to create your ultimate Jackson guitar.
Custom Select models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal articulation and bending nearer the heel.
From basic elegance to incomparable flamboyance, Jackson’s Custom Select series delivers great Jackson style. Colors range from sinister matte black to vibrant solids. Hand-painted graphics range from the understated to the outlandish, or choose one with a beautifully figured top. Necks with oiled finishes and classic inlay work. And much more. In body styles both classic and brand-new, the Custom Select series is the U.S.-made top of the Jackson line, sought by players worldwide.
Jackson doesn’t cut any corners when it comes to using only the finest traditional and exotic woods for Custom Select guitars. The distinctively shaped bodies, beautifully figured tops, rock-solid necks and more are fashioned from money-is-no-object woods of the highest grade—all to present you with the very finest selection possible when we create your ultimate Jackson instrument.
