Over the last decade, Boston-based act Revocation has firmly established itself as one of the finest in today’s death metal and thrash metal genres. Heralded as one of modern metal’s elite guitarists, frontman Dave Davidson is also the driving force behind the band as it continues to evolve and challenge conventional metal norms.
Jackson continues its storied history of working with the best in the business with the creation of Davidson’s Pro Series Signature Warrior™ WR7 model, an instrument built for taking creative liberties and running the metal gamut.
Davidson’s take on Jackson’s revered angular shape is in a 7-string form featuring a 25.5” scale length, mahogany body with ash top and one-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, providing the utmost stability against the rigors and ravages of the road. The oiled neck back finish allows for smooth playing feel, while its 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
To meet Revocation’s propensity for building rich, complex chord voicings, Davidson teamed with DiMarzio® to create his own signature Imperium pickups, which power this signature Pro Series axe with dynamic tone and punchy clarity. Designed so that all notes ring through, from full-bodied, tight low end while using high gain amps to crystal clear cleans on non-distorted channels, these pickups are also highly responsive to harmonics. This axe also features a single tone control, a single volume control with push/pull coil split for single-coil tone and a three-way toggle switch.
Dive-bomb or flutter at will with the Floyd Rose® FRT 1000 series double-locking tremolo bridge system, recessed for pick hand comfort and providing superior string stability, sustain and dynamic tremolo action.
Dark and menacing with its Distressed Ash finish, black body, neck and headstock binding and black hardware, this signature Warrior is primed and ready for battle.
MAHOGANY BODY WITH ASH TOP
Mahogany produces a rich, warm and resonant tone that is well balanced. An ash top provides additional treble and great sustain with a fuller, clearer tonal range while also adding to its striking looks.

Davidson’s Signature Imperium pickups offer a sound as unique as his style. These pickups have the ability to sound great as a lead and clean up well with crystal clarity, allowing the notes to ring through even with a lot of gain.
Formed in Boston in 2000 by frontman Dave Davidson, extreme metal band Revocation soon earned a reputation for unleashing some of the genre’s most potent, technical and abrasive metal. With a constant drive to evolve their sound, Davidson and his bandmates Brett Bamberger, Dan Gargiulo and Ash Pearson set forth their most dynamic, boundary-pushing and weighty release to date with 2016’s Great Is Our Sin. Davidson developed his ferocious guitar skills by attending the Berklee College of Music, where he focused on polyrhythm and jazz.
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
