Australian metal band Truth Corroded recently released their album Worship The Bled via Truth Inc Records. Guitarist Chris Walden also recently gave PureGrainAudio some of this time to discuss his use of his SLSMG Jackson guitar. Read on to learn more about this key piece of gear.

What one piece of equipment do you use to obtain your signature sound?
Chris: I experiment and buy and sell gear constantly to try and find the perfect tone, but the main constant would have to be my Jackson guitars. I currently play an SLSMG soloist, it’s a great guitar.

What about it makes it so important to you?
Chris: I’ve played Jackson guitars for many years, I really enjoy playing them. They’re comfortable and really easy to play.

What are the major pros and cons?
Chris: Pros: It looks and sounds amazing, it’s also the super lightweight model so it’s a joy to play live. It has a thin neck that’s perfect for playing fast leads and unbeatable high fret access.

Cons: There are none!

How long have you used this piece of equipment and would you ever change it?
Chris: I’ve used Jackson guitars for a long time, although I’ve only had this guitar for around 6 months. Only reason I’d change it is for another Jackson! I’d love a Jackson SLS with a Floyd rose.

Any final thoughts or comments on the gear?
Chris: If you play live in a metal band you need a guitar you can trust to stay in tune and shred on nightly, and Jacksons are perfect for that.
