About Jackson Guitars
Jackson guitars are a titan in the realm of hard rock and metal. Their hot-rodded Californian creations went hand in hand with the explosion of hair metal and shred in the 1980s. Jackson now define, in many guitarists' eyes, the whole concept of the Superstrat. Their distinctive electric guitar designs were a breath of fresh air for a new generation of guitarists who wanted to play faster, louder and more brightly than anyone else! These included models such as the Randy Rhoads and the Kelly, with their sharp lines and even sharper headstocks.
Jackson guitars started out when Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads approached Grover Jackson (who had by that point bought the Charvel guitars company from associate Wayne Charvel) about producing a guitar for him based on the Flying V. Charvel were at this point making Superstrat models. So, Grover Jackson decided to put out this highly unusual guitar under his own name. The rest, as they say, is history.
Jackson are well known in the industry for their pioneering designs and high profile artist endorsements. They are also famed for their excellent levels of quality control. Aside from their most famous Superstrat models, Jackson are well known for their 'shape' guitars. Models including the Warrior, King V and Kelly provide unique identities for metal players of all styles.
Jackson electric guitars are generally equipped with high output pickups and flat fingerboards. Locking tremolo systems are another common feature. It's no coincidence that one of their guitar designs is called the Soloist!
