As a guitarist himself, Grover was always interested in input and comments directly from players, and many guitar models were originally done as special custom projects, where he worked one-on-one with their namesakes.

 

One particular vision came to be one day in 1980. Originally called The Concorde, the Randy Rhoads model was the result of a marathon session that started with an outline drawn on a napkin, and ended 12-hours later with what has become one of the most unique and identifiable guitar designs – ever! Originally meant to be a Charvel, the neck-thru construction and radical styling of the Randy Rhoads seemed to beg for its own identity beyond that of the current offerings, it was at this moment that Jackson Guitars was born.

 

Now reinventing himself and his craft yet again as GJ2 Guitars, Grover and his business partner, Jon Gold (a lifelong guitarist and enthusiast who most recently served as Sr. VP of International Sales and Marketing at Fender Musical Instruments Corporation) are redefining the modern electric guitar. Unlike most manufacturers who buy parts and complete sub-assemblies from a small group of the same suppliers, GJ2 makes everything they can, not just the wood parts, but pickups, pickup rings, back plates, ergonomically designed knobs and more, meaning that you get a guitar that screams quality craftsmanship. You simply can’t go wrong with a GJ2 guitar!
