Founded in 1980 by a man named Grover Jackson, the brand “Jackson Guitars” has come a long way.
This manufacturer provides a range of bass and electric guitars.
While working at Charvel’s Guitar Repair store, Jackson mentioned the idea of setting up his business. Wayne Charvel had promised assistance for Jackson’s time and in the end sold his store to the budding entrepreneur (1970s). This was when he was able to take a guitar to Randy Rhoads in 1980.
It was at this stage; he was able to release the name of his business as Jackson Guitars.
The guitar was made under the Charvel brand until it became apparent the design was far different to anything being sold at the store. This was when it became clear the best solution was to go with the Jackson Guitars label. The assistance of Randy Rhoads, Mike Shannon, and Tim Wilson was needed to build the guitar.
In the modern era of his business, Grover Jackson has gone on to do millions in business and is well-received as a top-notch guitar manufacturer. The popularity of this brand has reached new heights and is sold under an Asian label. Grover Jackson has also gone on to do a range of side projects to help guitar companies around the world with their designs.
HIs expertise has helped grow the business and spread the wealth of his knowledge in the industry.
