Classic and familiar single-cutaway style melds with powerful sound and Jackson’s illustrious legacy of cutting-edge design and construction for a top-notch guitar. Whether you play with crystal-clear clean tones or thick, heavily saturated distortion, the JS Series Monarkh SC JS22Q easily keeps up with any style you can throw at it. Ideal for modern metal, this instrument is the ultimate complement to your music, as creative as your playing.

The SC JS22Q offers a slightly shorter (24.75") scale length than most of our six-string guitars, and features a poplar body with a beautiful quilt maple top and a bolt-on maple speed neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint. Designed for flexible playing, the 12"-16" compound radius amaranth fingerboard is curved for easy chord playing near the nut, flattening out for playing smoking leads without fear of fretting out during bends. The Jackson compound radius compensated bridge perfectly matches the fingerboard’s radius for accurate string action and spacing while chords stay in tune up and down the entire length of the neck.

Two Jackson high-output humbucking pickups in the bridge and neck positions crank out clear tone with plenty of the girth required for current styles. The pickups’ crisp, clear tone is channeled by a three-way toggle switch along with single tone and volume controls for versatile sound that matches any playing situation, and can cut through a thick mix to highlight your playing.

When you plug in a Jackson, you’re plugging in a legend. For over three decades our guitars have fueled musical revolutions, setting stages ablaze with fiery playing.

Available in Transparent Purple Burst with black hardware, the JS Series Monarkh SC JS22Q is a sterling addition to any guitar collection—both powerful and gorgeous.

Technical
What is guitar 'action'?

This is not the sort of 'action' that you get from the audience after the show when you're lead guitarist in an '80s rock band. It's much more exciting than that! Guitar 'action' describes the distance between the strings and the frets on a guitar. A lower action makes pressing down the string onto the frets a whole lot easier, but if it's too low your strings can buzz, rattle and lose their sustain (not "ring out"). If you have a high action, the strings are harder to press down but you get a much purer tone. Because nearly all guitars can be adjusted, you can usually find a happy medium between comfort and tone. If you need someone to fix the action on your guitar, just ask one of the Kenny's Music team.

Does it matter what the fingerboard on a guitar is made from?

Apart from making a big difference to how the guitar looks, different types of wood can feel and sound quite different when you're playing on them, and their differing feels can subtly affect the way you play.

Rosewood: Soft-feeling and warm-sounding, rosewood fretboards are popular for good reason.

Maple: Offering a brighter tone with more high end, Maple fretboards also wear over time which can be attractive if you want your axe to look lived-in. 

Ebony: similar to maple in tone and sturdier than rosewood, ebony fretboards offer a darker-looking neck with a brighter tone.

Does it matter what country a guitar is made in?

Despite what nationalists might tell you, there's not really any simple answer. Even though many companies design their guitars in the USA or Europe, the vast majority of instruments are actually manufactured in China, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan and Korea. There aren't any 'rules' as to what country makes good or bad guitars, but rather which brands have tighter quality control.

Does it matter how many frets a guitar has?

Not really. Most electric guitars have between 21 and 24 frets which allows you to play pretty much everything you can imagine. 24 frets can be handy for easily playing exactly 2 octaves above the open string during a solo, but Jimi Hendrix, Dave Gilmour, Eric Clapton and John Mayer got by just fine with 21 frets!

Does body shape matter?

Surprisingly, it does.  Wood type is not the only thing that affects the tone.  The shape of the guitar can also influence the sound.  As some shapes require the use of more wood than others, it can definitely give the tone a different texture.  Some shapes will also work better if you are performing seated as opposed to standing.  You also can't discount the importance of having the right "look" if that is what you are going for. 

Why are some guitars so much more expensive than others?

The price range of guitars can vary from less than £100 to prices too large to mention. The reason why the prices vary so much has a lot to do with the types of wood used, the craftsmanship of the instrument(customized or not), the quality of the hardware and the type of pickups used. Some guitars are made to be pieces of art for display while some are created for the everyday player or brand new learner to use as they see fit.  There are good guitars at about every price range. 

How do I know what guitar bridge type suits me?

There are 3 main bridge types that you regularly find on electric guitars, Fixed or Hardtail, Tremolo, and then Floyd Rose.  Fixed or Hardtail bridges have great tuning stability and are easily retuned or drop tuned without affecting the remaining strings. The main negative for this type of bridge is that you don't have the flexibility to change the pitch of a chord easily as you do with a Tremolo. For most guitarists this is not much of a problem and this tends to be the preferred bridge type. Tremolo bridges are usually set up as "floating" which means that if you push or pull on the tremolo bar you are able to change the pitch of the note or chord that you are playing. This type of bridge requires regular checking of tuning as the strings can get out of tune much easier on this bridge type. The Floyd Rose is the best known by the guitar shredding community. With this bridge you can dive bomb and lift squealing harmonics to the heavens by pushing or pulling on the tremolo bar. This bridge usually stays in tune very well no matter how dramatically you use it because there is a locking nut installed to help keep the guitar in tune. The difficulty comes when needing to change strings quickly or needing to change or drop tune. It all comes down to personal taste.
