Randy Rhoads white Jackson Guitar is now on the way to honor him ahead of his induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this fall. The induction ceremony is scheduled to take place October 30th in Cleveland.
We recently spoke with Kathy Rhoads Dargenzio, Randy’s sister and head of the Randy Rhoads Trust along with Randy’s brother Kelle Rhoads. We takled about Randy and how happy the family was with our new Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz Statue. During that call she told us one of Randy’s axes would be going to the hall, but they were still going back on forth on which to send. Glad they picked the White Jackson. We think it’s the most striking of Randy’s guitars he played on-stage.
Our 1st project when we founded KnuckleBonz 18 years ago was Randy Rhoads with his white Jackson from the Diary of a Madman era of Ozzy Osbourne. The great folks at Fender/Jackson actually sent us one of the reproductions they had done to help us nail as many details as possible. That was great, with only one problem. When we were getting down to final approvals and production, one of the head guys in the custom shop at Fender called to tell us the guitar we had not an exact match to Randy Rhoad’s original. The big difference was the body. Randy’s White Jackson has a wider body and slightly different shape that the more sleek reproduction. So…that part of the sculpt was a complete re-do….it happens.
The shot in the Blog here is one of the most coveted in the KnuckleBonz studio. It’s from a sound check taken by the great Neil Zlozower. Neil has helped us with photo research over the many years. He was kind enough to sign this print from his original negative…so cool.
Our Randy Rhoads 3 Rock Iconz Statue is super hot and now on Back-Order on it’s way to a SELL OUT. Order Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz Here…No FoMO!
