The world’s longest-operating custom shop, turning out world-class custom guitars ever since Grover Jackson first affixed his name to a headstock in 1980.

 

The reason for this amazing longevity is simple: Jackson began as a custom shop. In the beginning, there were no production guitars—every Jackson guitar was a highly original high-performance custom instrument.

 

Whereas some production guitar makers open their own custom shops well after reaching a certain age or level of success, Jackson existed from its very earliest days as nothing but a custom shop, building distinctive and meticulously crafted instruments for a very exacting clientele. Further, from the very start, no design was too crazy and no idea was too far out—if someone could conceive of it, Jackson’s talented, imaginative and occasionally demented craftsmen could build it. This early emphasis on unique and outlandish one-off instruments proved enormously influential on Jackson’s most famous and oft-copied body shapes.

 

If you can dream it, we can build it. It’s a longstanding tradition of U.S.-made greatness and devotion to craft that continues to this day. The Jackson Custom Shop—the original custom shop.

As a longtime Jackson endorser (since 1986) and lead guitarist for one of the world’s biggest-selling rock bands, Def Leppard’s Phil Collen has deftly wrung numerous classic riffs from Jackson guitars. It’s impossible to imagine the ’80s and ’90s rock charts—or Jackson history—without him. With exotic woods and a Jackson Sustainer/ Driver system, Collen’s PC1 Dinky was one of the original Jackson signature instruments.
