Over the years, Jackson has worked closely with many legendary hard rock guitarists - but perhaps one of their most revered and celebrated collaborations was with Randy Rhoads. When Randy left Quiet Riot to join Ozzy Osbourne's band in 1980, he already had big ideas for a new, innovative guitar design. After a meeting with Grover Jackson of Charvel guitars, plans for the perfect metal machine quickly got underway. Sadly, a tragic plane accident meant that Rhoads would never see his finished product, but thanks to this short-lived partnership with Jackson, his spirit is alive and well through every Jackson Rhoads guitar in this section.
Jackson never discriminates when it comes to taste and budget, and a quick browse through their line of Jackson Rhoads guitars will make that obvious.
