Jackson Guitars has announced that Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano has joined its artist roster. Caggiano’s signature model is scheduled to debut in early 2020, but in the meantime, he will be playing prototypes for Volbeat’s upcoming live dates on Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow and their own Rewind, Replay, Rebound world tour.

“I’m beyond thrilled and proud to be a part of the Jackson family,” said Caggiano, who has also played with Anthrax, in a statement. “Jackson guitars played a huge role for me in my formative years as a guitar player. Besides the fact that some of my favorite players growing up were also Jackson players—Randy Rhoads, Marty Friedman and Scott Ian to name a few, I fell in love with a quirky little guitar myself called the Jackson Outcaster in the mid Nineties. It quickly became my main guitar for a few years.”
