Jackson has been unleashing wicked sound on the music world since the late 1970s. Originally founded in the back of a small repair shop, Jackson quickly expanded to become a brand that is simply larger than life. From their body designs, all the way down to their components, Jackson has become a name that musicians trust and love.
It's safe to say that Jackson's big moment arrived after a fateful meeting between founder Grover Jackson and Randy Rhodes in 1978. Randy wanted a truly one-of-a-kind guitar, and Jackson wasn't about to let him down. The result of this meeting was the legendary Randy Rhodes Concorde, which went on to become one of the most well-known guitars of all time.
While Randy Rhodes may have been one of the first big names to play a Jackson guitar, he certainly wasn't the last. Big time artists like Marty Friedman and Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Phil Collen of Def Leppard, Robbin "King" Crosby of RATT, and more showcase their virtuoso shredding on Jackson guitars. With names like these on board, it's no wonder you're looking for a Jackson to call your own.
It's safe to say you're not going to find a guitar that's more metal than a Jackson. Just take a look at an instrument like the KE2 Kelly USA Electric Guitar or the USA RR1 Randy Rhoads Select Series Electric Guitar; these guitars are seriously intimidating and sound as menacing as they look.
But Jackson aren't just about guitars, they also craft rafter rumbling bass guitars as well. For example, options like the David Ellefson Signature Kelly Bird 4-String Electric Bass and the JS3 Kelly Bird IV Electric Bass will definitely get you grooving. By packing a serious punch with every note you hit, Jackson basses are all you need to drive through the trenches.
Jackson instruments are built to help you bring the thunder when you play. With the experience and the know how to be the best, Jackson instruments will have all your fans raising their metal horns and saluting every time you hit the stage.
