With the success of Kiesel Guitars other Jason Becker tribute models, and in response to Jason’s still-strong legions of fans around the world, the Custom Shop is excited to debut the Jason Becker Tribute JB207C 7-string electric guitar. The JB207C is based on the JB200C 6-string model, and like other Kiesel Guitars signature instruments, is loaded with many upgraded standard features. Kiesel Guitars worked closely with Jason to maintain the spirit of his 6-string model, while allowing 7-string players to order their own tribute guitar. The JB207C is built in the USA, and is an instrument that you’ll be proud to play and own for years to come.
Like Jason’s original Carvin DC200 guitar, the JB207C is finished in deep sapphire blue on 4A flamed maple with a matching 7-string pointed inline headstock. It features a standard 25.5″ scale flamed maple fingerboard with abalone dot inlays, a 14″ radius and 24 jumbo nickel frets. The “Rapid Play” low action neck assures effortless playability throughout the entire fingerboard, while the smooth neck heel allows easy access all the way up to the 24th fret. A Floyd Rose tremolo with locking nut is standard. Premium Kiesel locking tuners with a 19:1 ratio ensure you’ll stay in tune no matter what your playing style is. Standard hardware is black.
Direct-mount Kiesel Lithium KL14 humbuckers and passive electronics are standard. These pickups are custom wound with vintage plain enamel wire that brings out the harmonically rich tone and sustain of the guitar. Standard controls consist of two volume controls, two tone controls, dual coil splitters and phase switching. Active electronics are available. If you prefer a simple control layout you can get our new 5WAY option that configures the controls with a 5-way lever pickup selector and single volume/tone controls.
In addition, we’ve updated the JB200C and JB200SC models to more closely reflect Jason’s original DC200. Passive electronics are now standard, with dual volume/tone controls, coil splitters and phase switching. Active electronics can also be ordered on these models. We’ve added a new option, 5WAY, that consists of a single volume and tone control and 5-way blade-style pickup selector (not available with active electronics), which is also available on the JB207C. Kiesel Lithium pickups are now also available on these models.
