NAMM 2011 - Megadeth’s David Ellefson Joins Jackson Guitars For Signature Bass

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.
