Jackson guitars are designed for shredding and withstanding your heavy or virtuosic onslaught - they've been there since the birth of metal and throughout all its incarnations since, universally lauded as the original metal electric guitars.
Just some of the most popular Jackson ranges we stock:
Dinky - Superstrat-style with a very-slightly smaller than usual body size for maximum maneuverability.
Kelly - feels light, sounds heavy. Named after Bradford Kelly of Aussie rockers Heaven, but loved by Megadeth's Marty Friedman.
King V - another Jackson guitar with a Megadeth link, this guitar's V-shape is almost synonymous with Dave Mustaine.
Rhoads - originally comissioned by by Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist Randy Rhoads, this model's now one of Jackson's most played. Notable players include Kirk Hammet (Metallica), Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden), Dan Spitz (Anthrax) and even nu-metallers like Limp Bizkit and System of a Down.
Soloist - the Superstrat pioneer, and ideal for lead playing, tapping and shredding.
“Jackson have long had a rich tradition of working with some of the heaviest artists in the music business and there is a reason for this, Jackson have a great selection of guitars for beginners right through to more advanced players who demand the very latest named EMG & Seymour Duncan pick ups and top spec hardware already installed“ -
