Rock House Method Metal Bass Instructor David Ellefson recently partnered with Jackson Guitars to produce probably one of the finest Signature Bass Guitars that the company has put out in a long time.
Highlights of the news from the partnership are:
Jackson is supremely thrilled to announce its new partnership with Megadeth co-founder and monster bassist David Ellefson.
His new signature bass is a monster, too. The U.S.A. Custom Shop David Ellefson Signature Model Jackson Concert™ Bass is based on the Jackson Concert Bass with which Ellefson recorded Megadeth’s landmark 1990 metal magnum opus, Rust in Peace. Further, it’s a spot-on replica of the instrument he played during Megadeth’s triumphant Rust in Peace 20th Anniversary Tour in 2010 (as seen in the Megadeth Rust in Peace Live DVD/CD and The Big 4 Live from Sofia, Bulgaria DVD).
The bass features an alder body, quartersawn maple neck with compound-radius ebony fingerboard and jumbo frets, pearl shark fin inlays, EMG® 35CS neck pickup and EMG® 35DC bridge pickup, EMG® BQS electronics, Badass™ bridge, Hipshot tuners, limited-edition burned-in fallout logo and Rust in Peace-themed case.
