The Black Dahlia Murder guitarist has been captivating the metal realm since taking over lead guitar duties on the band's 2017 album Nightbringers. Jackson is proud to honor the incredible talents of the self-taught axe ace with a signature model that seethes with metal sophistication, while also delivering massive sound and high-performance efficiency.

"This is my first signature guitar and it's a huge honor to me to work with Jackson and to offer this as a production model," said Ellis. "It's based on my custom shop Kelly, which is the guitar I ordered when I first teamed up with Jackson. I went with the Kelly body shape because of course it's classic Jackson, and I really wanted to represent that. The sharp contours really embody the whole attitude that I like to put into my guitar playing. It looks pure metal." This instrument features lightweight and resonant poplar body-wings and a through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint for enhanced sustain, stability and comfort. Built for pulverizing speed, a 12"-16" compound radius bound ebony fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets and reverse pearloid sharkfin inlays.
