Jackson Guitars kicked off operations by building a custom signature Flying V-style guitar for Randy Rhoads dubbed the Concorde in 1980. Since then, Jackson models like the Soloist and Kelly been in the hands of shredders like Adrian Smith of Iron Maidon, Scott Ian of Anthrax, and Mark Morton of Lamb Of God. In the '80s, these popular guitars helped define the sound of heavy metal. Today, Jackson continues to offer their aggressively elegant, fast playing and high-quality guitars at every price point.
