Fender

Since 1987, the Fender Custom Shop has been a “dream factory,” producing guitars that are to playing what Ferraris are to driving. The skilled craftsmen in Fender’s Corona, Calif., Custom Shop are known worldwide for their artistry in making guitars that range from the fine to the fantastic. Whether it’s building a new custom instrument from the ground up or modifying an existing one, their best is the best. Fender’s finest is the world’s finest.

Fender Custom Shop instruments have been crafted for and with the input of the world’s finest players—names like Clapton, Beck, Burton, Cray, Gilmour, Townshend and Vaughan, to name just a few. One could be yours.

“You can have your guitar built at the same factory where Eric Clapton’s guitar is built, by the same people,” said Mike Eldred, Custom Shop Director of Sales and Marketing. “Nobody else does what we do.”

Epiphone

The Epiphone story does not follow a straight line. For more than a century, it has twisted and turned through triumph, setback and comeback; hitting both dizzying highs and crushing lows as it winds its way through the ages. The latest chapter, in 2007, finds Epiphone as one of the most successful and respected instrument manufacturers on the planet. The opening chapter begins some 130 years before that, in the workshop of Anastasios Stathopoulo.

In 2007, Epiphone is all things to all players. Working musicians prize the company for its Gibson replicas, offering the quality of the most famous US models at competitive prices. Collectors of vintage guitars snap up the authentic Elitist reissues of the Emperor, Casino and Excellente (and many more). Recording artists turn to the Epiphone US range for quality that rivals any guitar manufacturer in the world, while rock 'n' roll fanatics delight in the company's signature models, which include everything from the Nick Valensi Riviera to the Zakk Wylde Les Paul Customs. Regardless of budget, ability or musical leaning, today's Epiphone line has it covered.

Perhaps even more important, Epiphone has retained the pioneering spirit that was always Epi Stathopoulo's calling card. Whether through the 2006 'Guitar of the Month' scheme (offering a different collector's model each month) or through its unending quest to challenge tradition, this is still a firm that thrives on the risk while always delivering the result. Perhaps David Berryman puts it best. "Gibson is a traditional company, Epiphone is more of a renegade. It marches to the beat of a different drum. Always has." One suspects that it always will.

Jackson

he Jackson guitar company had its official beginnings in 1978. Originally called Charvel Guitar Repair, Wayne Charvel sold Grover Jackson, his partner, his shares of the company. With the shift in ownership, Jackson was not interested in keeping the old name. Thus, Jackson Guitars were born.

From 1979-1986 the company was located in San Dimas, California. They made guitars at this location up until the company merged with IMC, or International Music Corporation. Now, Fender holds the rights to the Charvel label and manufacturers guitars that are very similar to the early models manufactured in the San Dimas location.

Jackson Guitars or probably best known for their Rhoads-V a guitar that they made with the late Rhandy Rhoads, former guitar player for Quiet Riot and later, Ozzie Osborne. Rhandy Rhoads had quite a following, so therefore this guitar was pretty sought after.

Another thing Jackson is famous for are their guitar styles that appeal to heavy metal and thrash artists. In general, the guitar designs are sleek and elegant and only some of these have designs that appeal to the hard metal style of playing.

In general, Jackson guitars resemble the Gibson Explorer. In fact, the
