Using Charvel And Jackson Guitars For More Than Metal

Ariel and Danish Pete are back with another Guitar Paradiso, and this week they’re looking at using Charvel and Jackson guitars for more than just metal.

The idea for this video came from watching John Mayer playing a Jackson guitar. He’s best known for playing his vintage (and signature) Fender Strats, and his recent collaborations with PRS. A pointy shredder’s beast seems a world apart from those instruments!

This is a topic that resonates personally with me. I can’t speak for modern Charvels and Jacksons, but I do have an 80s Charvel and a 90s Jackson in my collection, and I’ve used both guitars for folksy blues far more than for anything else in the decades since.

The Ultimate Metal Rig?

Over on the Andertons YouTube channel, Joss has built his ultimate metal rig – and it sounds epic.

The basic premise is that this is the kind of rig that Joss would use both to record with, and to gig with. It’s a straight-forward, no-nonsense rig that will handle both lead and rhythm duties in one. If heavier tones are your thing, it’s well worth a watch.
