Birth of Rhoads Concorde
On Dec 23, 1980, Randy found Grover and demonstrated him an exciting new created guitar drawing, which was designed fully by Randy himself. The style was founded upon the previously made polka dot V. The very first Concorde guitar was a bit larger, as Randy Rhoads was reasonably shorter, so this first guitar was then altered and shrunk a bit. Because of its cutting-edge contour, the instrument was named as Concorde. It really is the initial instrument bearing the Jackson brand on headstock and is regarded a milestone of Jackson Company. In the readers' survey of the Guitar World's 25th anniversary, this Rhoads Concorde has been titled the most representative electric guitar in history.
Rhoads Concorde Neck Joint
The design of this unique Rhoads Concorde is neck-through, which guarantees the stability, uniformity, strength and tonal strength of this electric guitar. However, our guitar is set-in structured, so the cost is cheaper than this neck-through instruments but the stability is simply precisely the same. Needless to say, we'll also make neck through body instruments if you want.
Rhoads Concorde Wood Selection
According to our study, no matter Randy's authentic guitar or Jackson's later on replicas, the wood is the very same, maple neck, ebony fretboard and maple body. We simply use exactly the same wood, selecting best high quality wood, just the identical as what utilized on the genuine instrument.
Rhoads Concorde Tremolo System
The tremolo system increases your method of musical expression with no concern of moving away from tune. Given that Randy's first guitar is a Gibson LP, he kept the majority of parameters, for example the neck thickness, chord size and nut width, on the Concorde guitar, whilst the bridge adopted a Fender designed tremolo system, so the Concorde is a combination of Fender playing mode and Gibson hue. Polka Dot V adopted precisely the same style. That's the result Randy desired. And our products also adopt exactly the same Fender styled tremolo system.
Rhoads Concorde Pickups
It really is incapable to discover the initial pickups that had been utilised on the Concorde prototype as a result of the extended time; however on the thirtieth anniversary of Jackson, they created a limited version of this unique electric guitar which used a Seymour Duncan SH4 humbucker in bridge and a Seymour Duncan Jazz SH-2n humbucker in neck. While in our items, except the Seymour Duncan pick-ups, we also supply Wilkinson pick-ups for consumers to obtain far more affordable pickups possibilities which can conserve you considerably money!
