Story of Jackson Guitars

A guy named Grover Jackson owns the Jackson Guitar Brand.  Jackson Guitars started with the “Rhoads” V model guitar, originally designed and used by guitarist Randy Rhoads.

Jackson Guitars has become known for its slender and elegant models, these guitars have an aggressive look and they are pretty popular with harder rock and metal music players.

During the Fall of 2002, Fender has purchased Jackson/Charvel, and manufacturing plant was moved to the Fender factory in Corona, CA.

If you are a fan of hard rock or metal music, and trying to decide which electric guitar to pick, I’d recommend buying a used Jackson guitar.  I like the sound and quality.

  1. Jackson Guitars are great. I loved seeing Randy Rhodes play and That is where I first saw the Jackson. It had inspired many players to get the Jackson Rhodes model and start finger tapping a la VANHALEN and do the metal thing.
    I can say I do not have a Jackson but I do put it up there with the best of em.
