Jackson Custom Shop Gallery

There was a time when there was just one custom shop worth talking about: Jackson´s facility in Ontario, California. The shop has produced some of the most lauded designs, both graphically and instrumentally, and continues to do so.

We visited the shop back after the Winter NAMM session of 2001, and there were all sorts of guitars and basses we were asked not to mention. Well, we happy to be able to let you know that the official Jackson site now features 42 pages (count ‘em) of drool-worthy Custom Shop instruments, and some of these super-secret models are there for all to see.

Put the kettle on or grab a tinny, then click here. Yum…

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Guitarist magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder. What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
