Misha Mansoor is acclaimed for his masterful guitar work in fashioning the progressive metal of Periphery. Now, the esteemed Djent-leman himself and Jackson have collaborated closely on the Misha Mansoor BULB HT7, a brand-new seven-string model like nothing else Jackson has ever seen—or heard—before.
For guitarists who think that six strings just won't do, the new Jackson Misha Mansoor BULB H7 might be just what they need! A stunning 7-string guitar with unique looks, powerful tone and outstanding playability. This is the “bling” signature version with the “P” inlay, the “Bulb” etched rear cavity cover and also the nickel covered engraved Bare-knuckle pickups. Amber Tiger Eye one.
The instrument is crafted with a distinctive Jackson body shape inspired by the Dinky™, with sleekly scalloped horns, a comfortably contoured neck heel and a gorgeous AAA quilt maple top on trans-finish models. The bolt-on quartersawn maple neck is sculpted with Mansoor’s own custom profile, and features graphite reinforcement, ivoroid binding and heel-end thumbwheel truss rod adjustment.
The 20”-radius ebony fingerboard is crafted with 24 stainless steel jumbo frets, piranha inlays, special Periphery “P” inlay at the 12th fret, and Luminlay fluorescent side dots. The guitar’s tonally versatile sound comes from Mansoor’s dual direct-mount signature Bare Knuckle “Juggernaut” humbucking pickups with brushed nickel covers and engraved “Bulb” logo, five-way switching and a push-pull (on/ off) master tone knob.
Other premium features include a Jackson AT1 headstock with Hipshot open-gear locking tuners (three on one side, four on the other), Hipshot hard-tail sevenstring bridge, black anodized brushed aluminum rear cavity cover with laser-etched “Bulb” logo, black hardware and more. Available in Amber Tiger Eye, Laguna Burst, Matte Black, Matte Blue Frost and Silverburst Sparkle finishes. Includes custom black Jackson case with blue edges and Mansoor’s “Bulb” logo.
