Scott Ian T 1000 Soloist

PRESS RELEASE: Scott Ian is a veritable thrash godfather who has made a living out of pummelling audiences worldwide for decades with his huge sound and formidable chops.

Jackson now honours the long time Anthrax axe man with the Jackson Select Series Scott Ian T-1000 Soloist model.

Designed by Ian himself and acclaimed Master Builder Mike Shannon, the neck-through-body guitar is based on Ian's '87 Soloist (the one with the New York Yankees logo on it). It has a super-sized mahogany Soloist body with 1/8-inch maple top and Quicksilver finish, and it comes in single and double humbucking pickup configurations.

The single-pickup Scott Ian T-1000 Soloist 1H/ST will be priced at £2,218, while the double-pickup 2H/FR will cost £2,422.
