Jackson unveils new Pro Series models

Eight new shred-tastic guitars on the way

Jackson has expanded its Pro Series range with eight brand new metal-ready axes.

The new additions include the SL2 Pro Series Soloist, SL2Q Pro Series Soloist, DK2M Pro Series Dinky, DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky, RRMG Pro Series Rhoads and the KVMG Pro Series King V.

Available in a huge array of finishes (including the curious sounding chlorine burst and exotically names Quicksilver), the new models are a pretty scary looking set of guitars that look tailor made to keeping up the neighbours with shredding practice.
