Great deals on musical instruments
Jackson has announced the launch of a range of USA select models in response to the rise in popularity of seven and eight-string guitars.

The manufacturer has unveiled the USA Select B7, B7 Deluxe, B8 and B8 Deluxe models which will be the perfect instrument for those looking to jump on the bandwagon and pick up a seven or eight string, MI Pro reports.

All of these latest offerings provide a beveled alder body, bolt-on quartersawn maple neck with graphite reinforcement and oil finish. They all come with a compound-radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets, 27" scale length and dual direct-mount DiMarzio D Activator 7/8 pickups.

Players can choose from a range of colours and finishes for their axe with the USA Selects coming in either satin grey, walnut stain, au natural or satin black.

Jackson guitars are used by some of the biggest musicians in the metal music scene with the likes of Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden), Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), Chris Beattie (Hatebreed) and Phil Collen (Def Leppard) all wielding the instruments.
