br /> Speaking to the company's official website, the 52-year-old revealed that not only does it meet his standard requirements of staying in tune and allowing him to express himself, but it is also among the loudest instruments in his collection.

"When Jackson sent me a prototype of my signature guitar, I liked it right away," he remarked. "So much so, it became my number one choice onstage for the Somewhere Back in Time tour."

Smith's signature guitar is based on his original Custom Shop instrument from the late 1980s.

Two versions of it have been made, with the models launched officially in January 2009.

Jackson has released numerous signature instruments over the years, including the Jackson Randy Rhoads and one of Dave Mustaine's favourites, the Jackson Kelly - named after Heaven's lead guitarist Brad Kelly.
