Jackson Unleashes Jeff Loomis Kelly HT6

Jackson Jeff Loomis guitar

The latest collaboration between Jeff Loomis and Jackson Guitars.

Loomis’ relationship with the Jackson brand has spanned over two decades and reached an exciting milestone in 2020 with the release of his signature Kelly and followed up two years later by the release of a robust signature seven-string Soloist.

“It’s a seriously metal-looking guitar,” said Jeff Loomis. “My favorite feature is the heel mount truss rod wheel. As a touring musician, it’s perfect if I need to adjust the neck on the fly. The playability is truly superior and the single volume and pickup toggle switches make it simple yet effective. I’ve played Jackson’s from an early age so working with them again to create this signature model has been incredibly fulfilling. I just really love how this guitar turned out and I know fans will too.”

The through-body, graphite-reinforced neck with 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard makes for a light and agile playing experience. The Seymour Duncan Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts pickups give this metal monolith its roar of clear and articulate tones, even when under the heaviest distortion. A Hipshot HardTail Bridge will handle the rigors and ravages of the road, while a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes for quick and painless neck relief tweaks. Luminlay side dots on the neck allow for playing on the darkest of metal stages and the black sandblasted ash top finish with white binding gives the Loomis Signature Kelly a distressed and menacing look.

“The Jackson team has delivered a guitar that perfectly encapsulates Jeff's identity as a musician: the intersection of technical mastery and raw power," said Jon Romanowski, Vice President of Product at Jackson. "Following the success of the last two Jeff Loomis signature models, it was clear that fans would be ecstatic to see his unique take on the Kelly model that embodies his preferences and specifications that set an industry standard.”
