One of the most influential and respected players in the world, Marty Friedman’s impactful and game-changing contributions to heavy metal and guitar in general continue to inspire generations of musicians and music fans to this day.
This is a great guitar, it has a straight neck, low action and a pure EMG tone. The finish looks excellent with only light signs of use and handling. There are some light visible dings on the lower bout, bass side, on the side. There is a deeper scratch on the back, bass side, lower bout. As a refurbished b-stock guitar, it is stamped “used” to indicate that it no longer has a factory warranty.
Photography notes: The top of this guitar is basically a mirror, so anything in our photography room shows up in the pictures. Therefore, there isn’t a pure photo that doesn’t have some reflections. It looks very clean in person, other than the flaws described.
He defined modern guitar playing with Jason Becker in Cacophony, was a key element in the wildly successful rise of thrash pioneers Megadeth, and with his “Marty-esque” improvisations and exotic fusion of Eastern and Western music, has achieved global success as a solo artist.
Jackson® continues our longstanding relationship with Friedman by collaborating with the virtuoso on the Pro Series Signature Marty Friedman MF-1.
This 24.75″-scale signature model is loaded with great features to match the demanding needs of an elite and intricate player like Friedman – but at an affordable price.
Friedman’s signature MF-1 features a resonant mahogany with a striking cracked mirror top. A mahogany set-neck features a scarf joint and graphite-reinforcement rods to protect against environmental depredations. A 12″-radius bound ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays is an ideal playing surface for swift licks or articulate chord work.
Marty Friedman dual passive EMG® MF signature humbucking pickups deliver a sound that sings and screams. This axe is also equipped with two volume and two tone controls as well as a three-way pickup toggle switch to wrangle all of the subtle nuances out of your guitar tone. The Jackson TOM-style adjustable bridge with anchored tailpiece and die-cast locking tuners creates improved intonation and enhanced sustain.
Never fear being upstaged with the all-new cracked Purple Mirror finish, complete with 3-ply white/abalone/white body binding, all-black hardware and reverse Jackson 3×3 (3 over, 3 under) AT-1 black headstock.
