Grover Jackson

Grover Jackson grew up outside of Nashville, TN and developed a strong and lasting passion for music, not just playing it in noted bands, but in designing instruments to achieve creative sounds. His powerful playing and early involvement in heavy rock music led to requests from noted players for Grover to make them guitars. His style included thin bodies and progressive colors and images – and the instruments came along just when MTV was born and metal bands almost always played a Jackson-Charvel guitar. The company was sold to Fender, and Grover proudly returned to designing instruments, something he continues to do.
