About Jackson Guitars
Jackson guitars are a titan in the realm of hard rock and metal. Defining in many guitarists' eyes the whole concept of the Superstrat, Jackson's hot-rodded Californian creations went hand in hand with the explosion of hair metal and shred in the 1980s. Their distinctive electric guitar designs such as the Randy Rhoads and the Kelly, with their sharp lines and sharper headstocks, were a breath of fresh air for a new generation of guitarists who wanted to play faster, louder and more brightly than anyone else!
Hailing from Glendora, California, 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 at that point were 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, high profile artist endorsements and excellent levels of quality control. Aside from their most famous Superstrat models, Jackson are well known for their 'shape' guitars with models including the Warrior, King V and Kelly providing unique identities for metal players of all styles.
Jackson guitars are generally equipped with high output pickups, flat fingerboards and oftentimes locking tremolo systems. It's no coincidence that one of their guitar designs is called the Soloist!
