Origination of Randy Guitar
On Dec 23, 1980, Randy Rhoads encountered Grover Jackson and showed him a whole new designed instrument design, which was designed entirely by Randy Rhoads himself. The design was based upon the previously manufactured polka dot V. The very first Concorde guitar was a little bigger, while Randy was fairly shorter, so the guitar was then tailored and shrunk a little. Due to its cutting-edge shape, the guitar was titled as Concorde. It is the very first guitar having the Jackson symbol on headstock and is regarded a milestone of Jackson brand. Within the readers' online survey of the Guitar World magazine's 25th anniversary, the guitar has been referred to as essentially the most representative electric guitar in music history.
Randy Guitar Neck Joint
The structure of this unique guitar is neck-through-body, which ensures the stability, reliability, durability and tonal capability of this instrument. But, our guitar is set-in structured, so the cost is less expensive compared to those neck through instruments but the reliability is definitely precisely the same. Needless to say, we can also construct neck through body guitars in case you want.
Randy Guitar Wood Selection
In accordance with our research, irrespective of Randy Rhoads' original instrument or Jackson's later reproductions, the wood is the exact same, maple neck, ebony fretboard and maple body. We just choose precisely the same wood, picking top quality wood, just the same as what utilised on the original instrument.
Randy Guitar Tremolo System
The tremolo system increases your means of musical expression with out worry of going out of tune. Since Randy's 1st instrument is actually a Gibson LP, he reserved nearly all parameters, such as the neck thickness, chord length and nut width, in the Concorde guitar, whilst the bridge used a Fender styled tremolo system, thus the Concorde is really a combination of Fender playing manner and Gibson tone. Polka Dot V used the same style. That is the effect Randy wished. And our items also use exactly the same Fender styled tremolo system.
Randy Guitar Pickups
It really is incapable to uncover the actual pickups that were used on the Concorde prototype because of the extended time, however on the thirtieth anniversary of Jackson, they built a limited model of this particular instrument which used a Seymour Duncan SH4 humbucker in bridge plus a Seymour Duncan Jazz SH-2n humbucker in neck. While in our items, except the Seymour Duncan pick-ups, we also offer Wilkinson pick-ups for consumers to have much more affordable pick-ups possibilities which can save you considerably cash!
