Legendary luthier Grover Jackson – yes, that Jackson – has formed a new company called GJ2, and the guitars look awesome. Check this out:
That’s the Arete, GJ2’s initial model. It’s available in two levels, 4-Star and 5-Star, with in-house pickups (or other brands on request), original Floyd Rose tremolo, compound radius 10″-14″ fretboard, high-access heel, neck through construction… different versions are available in basswood, mahogany and Korina. More info here.
The guitars will be made exclusively in California, and they’ll be available through an exclusive network of retailers from January.
Kudos to iGuitar for the heads-up!
