This is, by far, the coolest Jackson Custom Shop guitar I’ve seen in a long time, and it has an amazing story to go with it…

A man named Ernie Pedregon was working at Charvel around the time that Grover Jackson bought the company. Ernie worked there for 3 years and was a Graphic Artist for Charvel/Jackson, and is the artist responsible for both of Randy Rhoades most distinguishable “V”s, the white one w/ black pinstriping, and the Black one w/ white polka dots (not officially a Jackson). These two designs have become iconic with metal, firstly because Randy was a musical, metal genius, and secondly because Ernie’s designs are timeless, they do not look dated to their time periods. After leaving Jackson, Ernie went on to do custom car painting in SoCal, painting mostly Low Riders, but now in 2012, Ernie is back at Jackson painting “one-off” custom designs.

You are now looking at an incredible 2012 Ernie Pedregon designed and painted guitar that will become as timeless as his other work. This classy design is enhanced by chrome hardware and Blue/Black zebra pickups. Pay close attention to the white part of the guitar, this is a hand-painted pearloid texture that reminds me of a marble bathroom counter, it’s very intricate. I also love Ernie’s signature on the back of the guitar, it looks very California, you know, Ernie is also responsible for the hand painted Jackson logo you see on Randy’s white V.

If you are an upcoming guitarist, or a shredder playing in a band that gets seen regularly… buy this guitar. Help make this guitar become a famous guitar, an iconic guitar.

I haven’t even mentioned how this guitar sounds, rest assured, it sounds as good as it looks! This axe is equipped with a Duncan Custom in the bridge and it has a perfect brightness that allows you to shred at full speed without a chunky “pick attack” sound. This guitar has as much character sonically as it does visually.

Somebody, please buy this guitar before I do.
