The other day Josh Smith from Northlane was involved in a bad cycling accident here in Melbourne. He’s okay (but a bit bashed up) but his bike was totalled, and he’s selling his amazing Jackson B7 custom to fund a new bike. The guitar is fully loaded with Evertune bridge, bone nut, custom swirl finish by Charles Cilia, Josh’s signature Bare Knuckle Impulse pickups, 27″ scale length and plenty of other pro features, and you can make it yours for $7,500AUD.
Here’s the info from the Reverb.com listing.
“This Jackson B7 has been customized and used by myself on the road for around 6 years. It was also used in the film clip for the song Obelisk.
Although it is a regular USA B7 model, it is truly one of a kind. It also contains a pickup set not yet available to the public. Specs as follows:
– 1pc quatersawn bolt-on Maple neck w/reinforcement rods
– Ebony Fretboard
– Alder body with Maple top
– Luminlay Side dots
– 24 XJ frets
– 27″ scale length
– custom swirl refinish by charles cilia (neck pickup route filled in and routed for single coil)
– Evertune Bridge (installed by Harron Custom Guitars)
– Bone Nut (cut by Harron Custom Guitars)
– Hipshot grip lock tuners
– Dunlop Flushmount Straploks
– Bare Knuckle impulse H/S pickups
– 550k BKP/CTS bridge volume
– 280k BKP/CTS neck volume
– Dimarzio 3-way toggle (inner position hum cancelling with bridge inner coil/neck activated)
– Jackson OHSC
I have decided to allow for free international shipping if my asking price is met, this will open the guitar up to the world. Price guide is based on offers received prior to listing. All offers considered. I’ll string it up and tune it to whatever you’d like.
The guitar does have some road wear to it, dings etc that are impossible for me to show in photos. Plays flawlessly and sold as is.
Reason for selling is that i was involved in a pretty bad cycling accident and want to fund a new bike.”

Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who’s contacted me over the last couple of days since my accident. I was doing intervals at Albert park when a pedestrian walked out onto the road without looking as I took a corner at about 55kph. I locked up my rear wheel and hit this piece of road furniture and went flying ✈️. Although said pedestrian just left the scene of the accident, there were police around that called an ambulance for me and a personal trainer who administered first aid. I was transported to the Alfred hospital where I stayed for about 36 hours before being discharged. Miraculously I have no broken bones, I did a bit of internal damage to my liver, right kidney and spleen but there’s no bleeding. Left ribs are bruised up pretty bad but this Desmond is still breathing. I’ve had my amazing partner @angiebeb taking care of me every step of the way, from bringing me food in hospital to transporting my bike for me and making me pancakes in bed this morning. Also had a coffee delivery from my pals @mayajaneska & @jonathondeiley which really pepped me up while I was in the ward. Definitely feeling super lucky today ❤️
