Something for everyone!

Jackson 2017 Announcement

Cool news from the Jackson camp, who are hitting us with a whopping 59 new models! There truly is something for everyone.

One of the coolest, just also happens to be one of the lowest priced in the 2017 releases. As part of the JS series, the Dinky Archtop JS22 we love the most comes with a mahogany body in a natural oil finish. “Swift, deadly and affordable”, we totally agree and at $199 each, we’re pretty sure it’ll be a winner for most!

The Pro Series for 2017 brings a bunch of finishes that really punch you in the gut! Take the SL2Q hard tail in Fuschia Burst, or the Randy Rhoads RR24, with a stunning Rosewood top with gold hardware! There’s a lot of “natural” finishes this year, we feel – Quilted Maple tops and hand oiled Mahogany or Swamp Ash.

The X Series just keep getting better and better. Again, we can see beautiful woods, like the Koa topped, Soloist SLX. There’s also a Marty Friedman MF-1, which is a classic single cut, loaded with a pair of Marty’s signature EMG humbuckers – The look is outrageous, finished with Gloss black and deep, deep white bevels and all black hardware!

If Jackson has never quite been your style, maybe 2017 is the year to change your mind!

Jackson’s at Riff City Guitar are traditionally a popular brand and many guitars this first order have limited quantities, so moving fast is key!
