SUMMER NAMM: Jackson

The Jackson Mark Morton Dominion is, obviously, the signature model for the Lamb of God guitarist, but even players who aren’t into LOG can still find a lot to like about the Dominion. Well now players on a budget doesn’t have to squirrell away their bucks for quite as long with the introduction of the D2 Dominion, a lower-priced, stripped down version with Duncan Designed pickups.

Jackson Unveils Mark Morton Signature D2 Dominion

Jackson’s Mark Morton Dominion™ signature model is now available in an even more affordable version, the D2.



Available in two finishes—black or an eye-catching trans-black on a quilt maple veneer top—the Mark Morton Signature D2 Dominion boasts a bolt-on maple neck with a compound radius (12”-16”) rosewood fingerboard, dot inlays and a 24.75” scale length. Loaded with a pair of Duncan Design™ HB-101 humbucking pickups, each with individual volume and tone controls for maximum sonic flexibility, the guitar also features an adjustable chrome bridge, a stop tailpiece and the Lamb of God guitarist’s signature on the truss rod cover.

The D2 easily evokes the Jackson vibe of its high-end big brother, and Morton himself calls the new model “a unique instrument” with “a great sound to it.”

“We wanted to offer a Jackson Dominion that was a little bit more affordable,” Morton said. “You still get all the essentials, and it still plays and sounds like a Jackson Dominion. It’s just a little more stripped down.”

Jackson also recently introduced three new Pro Series models:

Three New Jackson Models


Jackson is proud to announce the addition of three splendid new Pro Series models to the Bloodline—the SL3MG Soloist™, KV5FR King V™ and KE5FR Kelly™. All are equipped with a Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 double-locking two-point tremolo.

The SL3MG Soloist is an upgraded version of the venerable SL3, with an alder body in several finishes (flame maple veneer on trans finishes), rock maple through-body neck, 24-fret compound radius rosewood fingerboard, active EMG 81 (bridge) and 85 (neck) humbucking pickups and black hardware.

The KV5FR King V is a menacing new take on Jackson’s classic King V, with an alder body available in Black, Bolted Steel and Snow White with black bevels. It too has a rock maple through-body neck, 24-fret compound radius rosewood fingerboard and black hardware, plus Seymour Duncan® JB™ (bridge) and Jazz™ (neck) humbucking pickups.

The KE5FR Kelly presents the latest version of one of Jackson’s most distinctive body shapes. Like its King V sibling, it boasts an alder body (this time in Black, Black with gold pinstripes and Snow White with black bevels), rock maple neck-through-body, 24-fret compound-radius rosewood fingerboard, black hardware and Seymour Duncan® JB™ (bridge) and Jazz™ (neck) humbucking pickups.

Like all Pro Series instruments, the SL3MG, KV5FR and KE5FR come with a Jackson molded hardshell case.
