This Jackson Custom Shop NAMM Display Kelly caught our attention, mainly due to the wicked artwork, created with a technique we’d never seen before.  Artist Mike Learn ground the design into a thin sheet of aluminum, and then used an airbrush to highlight the metal.  It had a nearly 3D effect in person, and suited the mean vibe of the Kelly perfectly.  Those triple humbuckers were made in-house at Jackson for this guitar, and the neck is adorned with stainless steel frets and sterling silver shark inlays.
