True Gnarliness

Wildwoodians, we are so proud of our new partnership with Jackson guitars. Every Custom Shop instrument we've had the privilege of showcasing put our jaws on the floor and set our heads a-banging, and this Oli Herbert Signature Rhoads may be the gnarliest of them all. It's certainly a fitting tribute to Oli, the trailblazing guitarist from metal giants All That Remains.

First, let's talk looks. The sinister Red Rum finish highlights the grain of a beautiful 3/4" quilted maple top. Under that, you can find a slab of natural-finish mahogany underneath. The shred-worthy neck goes all the way though this stellar-sounding body to promote maximum resonance and sustain, too.

Speaking of shred-worthiness, this neck is as righteous as they come. It's slim and fast with a compound 12"-16" radius, which allows for a fast, low setup, buttery bending up high, and easy chording down low. And, it's stable enough to handle anything thanks to its graphite reinforcement, which assures consistent playability and feel.

But, blistering sound is how you achieve true metal domination. Thankfully, this Oli Herbert Signature Rhoads comes equipped with a spectacular set of active Seymour Duncan Duality humbucking pickups. The good folks at SD designed them to have the power and clarity of active pickups and the flavor and timbre of classic pickups, and they succeeded spectacularly. The highs are clear, open, and touch-sensitive, the midrange has plenty of classic punch and rasp, and the lows are girthy enough to be satisfying and clear enough to avoid the dreaded flub.

But, the delights of these electronics go far beyond tech specs and frequency response. The sound of the Oli Herbert Signature is pure, visceral heavy metal fun. I could probably chug away on the low E string all day, because it's so incredibly satisfying. Ditto for screaming high bends and meaty Sabbathian riffs. And, the neck pickup is clear enough to excel at high-gain rhythms!

When you combine the Oli Herbert's amazing sound and its lightning-fast playability, you get a truly unparalleled pointy guitar experience. We are proud to present such an inspiring guitar to our exceptional customers, and we know it will take you to fascinating places as you walk The Path of the Shred.
