Expressing the master shredder's vision.<br />Rhoades didn't live to see production, but he helped design it...
From the warped minds at Jackson's custom shop.
Every shredder in the world can envision a heavy metal guitar. Certain designs and shapes just scream "metal". Sharp, jagged, and all around solid, a heavy metal guitar should look how it sounds, and sound how it looks. Although there are all kinds of guitar models that try and replicate the classic heavy metal guitar design, there's a good chance that most of them are basing their designs on the look of a Jackson guitar. Head bangers are more than familiar with Jackson guitars. Since the 1970's, Jackson guitars have been consistently applauded for being the ultimate metal guitar. Their distinct tone and high performance abilities are a virtuoso's dream. And from Randy Rhoads to Chris Broderick, you'll find Jackson models endorsed by the some of the greatest axe-wielders the world has ever known.
Who isn't familiar with a flying V guitar? It's a staple of both hard rock and metal, and the Jackson RR1 Randy Rhoads Select electric guitar contains a master design, fiery craftsmanship, and blistering sustain. Equipped with roaring Seymour Duncan open humbuckers, this guitar is a superb choice for any young headbanger. Another highly rated choice is the Jackson SL1 USA Soloist electric guitar. A recent addition to the Jackson catalog, the feel, sound, and sustain of this guitar is like no other before it, and needs to be heard to be believed.
Metal fans are deeply passionate about their genre. In fact, any metalhead will tell you how easy it is to become totally enthralled with the lifestyle once you start. It's an exciting thing to be a part of after all, and if you decide to learn the guitar on top of it, the chances are you'll be pointed in the direction of Jackson. The Jackson name has been a metal comrade for over 30 years, and as long as people feel a need for crunch, speed, and shreds, it will forever remain an essential part of heavy metal.
