Offering high end Custom Shop hardware and specifications, but at a much lower price point, these new high-performance versions of the Rhoads and Soloist models are Jackson’s latest addition to its Concept Series of models.
Jackson Concept Series
The new Jackson Concept Series offers players premium pickups and branded hardware, normally reserved for custom builds. So expect high-performance custom shop vibes, just without the accompanying eye-watering price tag. The range launches with two takes on the Soloist and the Rhoads models, both of which are classic shapes for the brand. They are now available with Luminlay glow-in-the-dark side dots, Floyd Rose Original or Hipshot bridges, and Seymour Duncan or Fishman Fluence pickups.
Concept Series Rhoads RR24 HS
The classic Rhoads extended Flying-V-shape has an alder body and a neck-through-body design with a graphite-reinforced three-piece maple neck with a 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fretboard. This new Concept Series Rhoads RR24 HS looks really striking in its all white finish and black pinstripes. And with gold hardware that includes Gotoh tuners, Dunlop dual-locking strap buttons and a Floyd Rose Original locking trem system, this instrument is sure to get you noticed.
The guitar is rocking a Seymour Duncan JB TB-4 pickup in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails SHR-1N in the neck position, wired via a three-position pickup toggle switch, single volume control and single tone control.

The pickups have also been swapped for a set of Seymour Duncan Distortion 7 humbuckers.

Concept Series Soloist SLAT7P HT MS in Satin Bourbon Burst
Finally, we come to this behemoth of a guitar: the Concept Series Soloist SLAT7P HT MS in Satin Bourbon Burst, and it looks like a beast!
This one has an ash body with a poplar burl top, paired with a neck-through-body build. The five-piece maple/wenge neck has an ebony fretboard, and a 25.5”-27” scale-length. This model features a set of Fishman Fluence Modern PRF-MH8-CB1 and PRF-MH8-AB1 humbuckers, with a choice of two voices that can be selected via a push-pull switch in the tone knob.
It comes with a black Hipshot 7 fixed bridge to hold down all those lows, perfect for sustain and note definition at both extremes of its range.
