Features of Jackson Guitars
Jackson Guitars made its own guitar and entered the market, and in addition to being highly evaluated for its quality and performance, it was also a big hit with the help of the unprecedented heavy metal boom. The Concorde head has a unique shape that pierces the lick, but it has a clear personality that is neither Gibson nor Fender, and it is a very excellent design that is simply organized. The conical fingerboard is also a big feature. In addition, the scarf joint is also a major feature of this manufacturer, and the head made of the scarf joint has high rigidity and hardly breaks. Furthermore, the through neck structure developed by B.C Rich is also adopted. Since the neck and body are integrated, the efficiency of vibration transmission is improved and a brilliant sustain is realized.
