**This is a pre-order. The current ETA is January, but to leave some buffer in there for any manufacturing or delivery delays we're estimating a February ship date. A deposit of $975 reserves the guitar for you! You’ll pay the rest when we receive the guitar in the shop and she’s ready to ship to you.**
As a longtime Jackson endorser (since 1986) and lead guitarist for one of the world’s biggest-selling rock bands, Def Leppard’s Phil Collen has deftly wrung numerous classic riffs from Jackson guitars. It’s impossible to imagine the ‘80s and ‘90s rock charts—or Jackson history—without him.
Collen’s PC1 Dinky was one of the original Jackson signature instruments, and continues to stand out in modern times with its staple exotic woods and a Jackson Sustainer/Driver. Refreshed in 2017, Collen’s revered USA signature models keep up with his latest tastes and specifications.
The USA Signature Phil Collen PC1™ Matte model boasts premium features including a caramelized mahogany body, bolt-on two-piece quartersawn caramelized flame maple neck with hand-rubbed urethane gel on the back and graphite reinforcement, 12”-16”compound radius caramelized flame maple fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets, convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt adjust and licensed Fender® Stratocaster® headstock.
Collen’s favored H/S/S configuration is also here, with a DiMarzio® DP-152-F bridge pickup, DiMarzio® HS-2™ DP116 middle pickup and a PC1 Sustainer Driver neck pickup. Equipped with dome-style master volume, master tone and intensity control knobs, as well as a five-way blade switch to tweak and refine tone, a Floyd Rose Original tremolo with die-cast tuners.
Available in Satin Gray and Matte Blue Frost with black hardware.
