French metal act Gojira blends thrash and progressive elements to create a monstrous groove metal sound like no other. Jackson® once again teamed up with their acclaimed guitarist, Christian Andreu, to collaborate on an all-new signature model worthy of Gojira’s ever-evolving musical pursuits.
Engineered for sterling playability and crossed with Jackson’s renowned style, the Pro Series Signature Christian Andreu Rhoads RRT cranks out mile-wide riffs and leads as fiery as its namesake.
Andreu’s demanding playing requires tone and sustain that can shake the foundations of the earth to their very core, and his Pro RRT uses a single Jackson covered high-output humbucking bridge pickup for blistering high-output tones with a hint of warmth. 22 frets top the ultra-fast 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard, creating the ideal playing surface for fat riffs and easy chording near the graphite nut while gradually flattening in the upper registers for lightning-fast solos and wide bends without worrying about fretting out.
A Jackson TOM-style adjustable compensated string-through-body bridge and Jackson sealed die-cast locking tuning machines create colossal tuning stability and accurate intonation along the entire length of the through-body maple neck. Graphite-reinforcement rods keep this neck ultra-stable even while touring all over the world in different climates, while the scarf joint and satin back finish enhance playing comfort during long sets.
This sophisticated metal instrument features a Natural finish over the poplar body with flame maple top, matching Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock, single-ply black pickguard and black hardware.
POPLAR BODY WITH FLAME MAPLE TOP
Poplar offers a meaty, resonant tone that is quite similar to alder. The poplar body is capped with a beautiful flame maple top that gives this axe a one-of-a-kind rippling, water-like appearance.
SINGLE JACKSON COVERED HIGH-OUTPUT HUMBUCKING BRIDGE PICKUP
A lone Jackson covered high-output humbucking bridge pickup radiates with molten tone and a hint of warmth that maintains its bite even under the heaviest distortion.
Christian Andreu is a French musician best known as the lead guitarist of metal band Gojira. French metal act Gojira blends thrash and progressive elements to create a groove metal sound like no other. The quartet gracefully swings between quaking and quivering guitars, mind-bending percussion, chillingly elegant melodies, and cosmic atmospherics. A band has always dealt in extremes, uncovering light in darkness and finding beauty in heaviness, and with each release, they seek to further expand the sonic palette.
Jackson guitars began back in the late 1970s, when heavy music experienced a flamboyant and virtuosic resurgence in popularity and a small Southern California guitar repair shop became the epicenter of a new level of shred-approved excellence. Ever since then, Jackson guitars have been universally lauded as the metal guitars; the shred machines—highly original high-performance instruments of distinctive style and formidable substance. www.jacksonguitars.com
