Just as it looked as though its Fender family sibling Gretsch would steal all the thunder with its summer lineup of 15 new electric guitar models, Jackson has delivered big time with new electrics and bass models. 

It's delivered small time as well; the scaled-down Minion guitar and bass models are back. Ideal for children or as a travel guitar. And they're just part of the story here…
