It's both a looker and a screamer with Duncan Designed SC101s in the neck/mid and an HB102B in the bridge position. The alder body is fitted with a shred-eriffic rock maple neck and a bound compound-radius rosewood fretboard. Transparent finish models have a stunning flamed maple top. The neck joint features a scalloped heel for uninhibited access to the upper frets.Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording, and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!
