The result of a collaboration between Paul Reed Smith and Paul Jackson, Jr., the JA-15 was originally designed with Jazz musicians in mind. But with several new innovations, it’s no surprise rockers are loving it too. Highlights include a “pattern” neck shape, 53/10 pickups and a 2-piece adjustable bridge. The warmth of the spruce top paired with the high-end clarity of the figured maple back creates a resonance in this guitar that is balanced with tonal clarity, and the simple control layout makes the JA-15 a joy to play.
This particular instrument is special as it comes with the highly sough-after 53/10 PRS pickups - normally retailing at $400 / pair! The tone is absolutely out of this world - thick, rich and full of complex overtones with an extremely tight bass and balanced midrange. Normally, a semi-hollowbody instrument is not well suited for higher gain structures due to issues with feedback; this guitar absolutely CRUSHES high-gain rock! No feedback issues whatsoever.
This JA-15 is mint! Original hardshell case & hangtag included.
