MUSIKMESSE 2013: Jackson has announced no less than eight additions to flagship USA Select Series, including four seven-string models: the B7, B7 Deluxe, B7MG and B7MG Deluxe, plus corresponding eight-string versions.

Common features include beveled alder bodies, quarter sawn maple necks and EMG/DiMarzio pickups. They also all feature Gotoh tuners, Dunlop locking stap pins and ebony fingerboards. Perhaps more importantly it's a sign of the ever-increasing demand for seven and eight-string guitars, even at the firm's highest price points.
