Description & Specs

Since first storming the Bay Area thrash metal scene in the early ‘80s, Death Angel evolved as one of the most influential and thriving staples on the metal landscape, largely thanks to the extraordinary fretwork and fast, complex arrangements from founder and lead guitarist Rob Cavestany.

In honor of his boundary-pushing talents and decades of allegiance to Jackson, we proudly present the all-new Pro Series Signature Rob Cavestany Death Angel.

Cavestany’s wickedly offset X-shaped weapon of choice dates back to a design he came up with as a teenager. Like his guitar hero, Randy Rhoads, Cavestany sketched out his vision for an extreme guitar shape on a napkin, and in 1989 that sketch became a reality with a custom-built Jackson guitar that he’s played ever since.

Previously available only as a made-to-order signature model from the Jackson Custom Shop, the Pro Series offering starts with a nyatoh body, with a deep C-cut inner lower horn for unencumbered access to the upper frets. The through-body maple neck features a scarf joint and graphite-reinforcement rods for rock-solid stability and enhanced sustain. Designed for furiously fast fretwork, the 12”-16” compound radius rosewood fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, black sharkfin inlays and Luminlay® side dots.

A thunderous EMG® 81 humbucking bridge pickup delivers searing intensity and fluid sustain for lead work that slices through the most dense mixes, while the EMG HA neck pickup provides the widest possible frequency response for clarity, warmth and a rich blend of harmonics — ideal for everything from articulate chording to bright single-coil snap.

Other features include a three-way toggle pickup switch, single volume control, Dunlop® dual-locking strap buttons and a dive-bomb-certified Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo bridge.

This menacing signature model comes in a Satin Black finish with black hardware, black neck and headstock binding, and pointed black Jackson six-in-line headstock embossed with a black nickel Jackson logo.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
