Forty years ago in Southern California, USA, Jackson Guitars was born. After starting as a small time repair shop in the midst of the rising San Francisco Thrash Metal scene, Jackson has established itself as one of the key guitar brands in metal and rock music.
Universally praised for its innovative nature, Jackson has a model and artist roster to rival any. When players like Randy Rhoads, Phil Collen, Marty Friedman and Misha Mansoor choose to play your guitars night after night, show after show, you know it must be doing something very right indeed!
The brand new Jackson Concept Series is an exclusive and strictly limited edition range for Peach Guitars and encapsulates its reputation for excellence. But you might be sat there thinking, 'What makes these any different to Jackson's core production line?'
The Jackson Concept series allows for unique and unconventional takes on its most revered and iconic models, fusing specs you would usually associate with high-end models but at a super consumer-friendly price point.
Ingenuity and creativity lay deep in Jackson DNA and that's certainly on show here. Jackson's 'Concept' name hasn't been used since the '90s so we are super stoked to see it return with these killer King V, Rhoads and Soloist models.
There's four models in total with the Concept Series Soloists available in a six-string option with Floyd Rose or seven-string hardtail with Hipshot 7 bridge.
The good news continues with the specs elsewhere. With alder and basswood bodies these guitars have a strong midrange with a lightweight nature, paired up with a through-body maple neck to deliver killer sustain with tonnes of clarity and tonal richness. And you have to check out that satin to gloss neck gradient on the Soloist 6, King V and Rhoads models; it's super slick and allows for quick and easy movements.
But there's more… Power and aggression runs in Jackson's veins, and it's very much on display here with EMG 81/85 or Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups. These provide a precise attack and articulate high-end whilst keeping brilliant bass and midrange response.
Finished off with high-quality appointments like Luminlay side dots, Hipshot 7 and Floyd Rose Original bridges, plus a Jackson foam core case, the Jackson Concept Series is available exclusively at Peach Guitars for £1649.00, where every model is photographed, weighed and listed individually.
With Finance options available and the opportunity to upgrade to a full PLEK setup, these guitars really demand your attention. This is also a strictly limited run with only six examples of each model available, so you best act quickly by heading to Peach Guitars.
