A longtime Jackson player, Def Leppard’s Phil Collen knows his way around a shred-ready guitar – and that’s exactly what the USA Signature Phil Collen PC1 is. Based on his original PC1 Dinky, this premium Jackson sports exotic tonewoods, a trio of powerful pickups, and a gorgeous Satin Au Natural finish. Whether you’re a Def Leppard fan or need a killer guitar built for rock ‘n’ roll, this flashy Jackson is a masterfully crafted instrument that’s sure to do the trick.
Unique to this model is its caramelized mahogany body capped with a 1/8″ quilted maple top. These tonewoods give it a gorgeous sound with punchy mids, truckloads of sustain, and a pleasant top-end bite. They also provide the foundation for its striking appearance. From the quilted maple top to the rich, smoky allure of the caramelized mahogany, the Phil Collen PC1 exudes elegance and style from top to bottom.
It wouldn’t be a genuine rock guitar if it didn’t play well at breakneck speeds, so Jackson fit it with a wicked-fast flame maple neck. In tandem with its 12″-16″ compound radius fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets, the Phil Collen PC1 offers unrivaled playability. Plus, its Floyd Rose Original double-locking tremolo bridge makes it perfect for guitarists who incorporate bends, vibrato, and divebombs into their playing.
Need an axe that’s as sonically versatile as it is visually stunning? The Phil Collen PC1’s HSS pickup configuration provides a vast tonal palette that ranges from hot, bright, and punchy to rich, warm, and saturated. What’s more, this Jackson has a PC1 Sustainer Driver pickup in the neck position, allowing players to hold notes endlessly for maximum creative expression. It even has a switch that selects whether the fundamental note or the harmonics are sustained. Seriously, this guitar rules.
For superior protection, the Jackson USA Signature Phil Collen PC1 ships in a heavy-duty Dinky/Soloist SKB hardshell case. Please reach out if you have any questions about this incredible Jackson guitar!
