JS32 King V™, Black

Experts consider the shark to be evolutionary perfection – the ultimate killing machine. The new Jackson JS Series is the affordable axe equivalent; each JS instrument is swift, sleek and deadly. Built with more than 30 years of Jackson expertise, JS series guitars are the ultimate shredding machines. Jackson JS models are armed with high-output pickups, jumbo frets and a tilt-back headstock – a feature normally found on more expensive instruments. This design negates the use of string-trees, which often cause tuning issues due to the unnecessary friction they create. JS Series guitars also feature compound radius fingerboards – a stunning design innovation unique to Jackson that rises above the competition in terms of shredability. The fingerboard radius is roundest near the nut – perfect for fretting deadly riffs and crushing chords. As players climb the neck, the fingerboard’s curvature gradually flattens out – perfect for warp-speed shredding and effortless string-bending.

JS32R Dinky™, Snow White

The foundation of the JS Series is the original JS1: an incredibly-popular, no-nonsense axe. Building on that, JS2 and JS3 models feature custom-voiced high-output Jackson pickups, 24 frets, trademark shark fin inlays and a Jackson gig bag. Five new JS3 models now come armed with double-locking tremolo systems, licensed by Floyd Rose®. Visit your nearest Jackson dealer and grab a new JS Series instrument by the neck. Your fingers will thank you.

JS3 G uitars with Fixed B ridges

Compound Radius Fingerboard

The five classic Jackson shapes all boast the same features as their locking tremolo brethren, but with a fixed adjustable bridge and string-through-body design for maximum sustain and resonance. Their tilt-back headstock design ensures correct string tension at the nut without ugly string trees and the tuning issues they invariably cause.

A feature unique to Jackson® that lets you shred like no other – rounder near the nut so it’s perfect for fingering deadly riffs and crushing chords. Then, as you climb the neck, the fingerboard flattens out, making it perfect for warp-speed shredding and effortless string bends.

24 Jumbo Frets Superbly finished and easily accessible, the frets on Jackson JS guitars improve your playing. When combined with our compound radius fingerboard, this feature ensures effortless string bending and super-fast shredding all the way up to the 24th fret.

Distinctive Shark Fin Inlays Undeniable. Unmistakable. Jackson. This instantly recognizable feature makes our guitars stand out from the crowd. Jackson guitars not only play better – they look better.

JS32T Rhoads, Inferno Red

High-Output, Custom-Voiced Covered Jackson Pickups Painstakingly voiced for full, rich tone while providing maximum overdrive and sustain. These bad boys also clean up nicely when rolled back, which isn’t always true of high-output pickups.

Tilt-Back Headstock

A feature normally found on more expensive instruments. This design negates the use of string-trees, which often cause tuning issues due to the unnecessary friction they create.

JS32RT Dinky™, Tobacco Burst

High-Quality Jackson Gig Bag Cover your axe. Besides protecting JS guitars, the gig bag lets players carry it with ease, confident it won’t get dinged. Why buy a lesser guitar that comes in a mere cardboard box?

All JS Series Jackson® guitars boast a compound radius fingerboard and the slickest, most comfortable back-shape in rock. So head to your Jackson dealer today and grab a new JS by the neck.

The fingerboard is rounder near the nut (12” radius at the 1st fret) – perfect for fretting deadly riffs and crushing chords with ease.

As you climb higher, the fingerboard gradually flattens out (16” radius at the 24th fret) – making it perfect for effortless, warp-speed shredding and the widest string bends known to man.
