2010 marks the 30th Anniversary of Jackson Guitars, and they trotted out some cool new models to commemorate the occasion at the Winter NAMM show. The official Jackson 30th Anniversary models are pictured above, with more pics and details after the jump. There are actually four 30th Anniversary models, but the 30th Kelly, a black one masterbuilt by Mike Shannon, didn’t make the show for some reason. All of the Jackson 30th Anniversary guitars will be available from The Music Zoo this year.
We probably shouldn’t say this but the 30th Anniversary Jackson Randy Rhoads “First Five” model masterbuilt by Mike Shannon, resplendent in Gold Metal flake with a hand-painted logo, was our favorite. Limited run of only 30 worldwide:
Also a very limited run, the 30th Anniversary Jackson Randy Rhoads “Throwback” masterbuilt by Mike Shannon is a very period correct black Rhoads model, with a hand-painted logo and a compound radius fretboard:
The last 30th Anniversary Jackson (notwithstanding the Kelly 30th, which wasn’t on display) is this Custom Jackson Dinky 30th Bomber, with a very cool graphic, quartersawn maple neck with graphite tubes, compound radius, and mini headstock inlays:
Happy Anniversary, Jackson! Please let us know if you’d like any more information or would like us to set one of these aside for you.
