Jackson has adorned his Kelly KEX with a rather nifty Ferrari Red finish, with black binding. The guitar has poplar wings and a through-neck maple neck with graphite reinforcement rod. Unsurprisingly, we find the laurel fingerboard with a compensated radius between 12 and 16 inches. The 25.5 inch scale spans 24 jumbo frets. The black hardware includes a Floyd Rose Special vibrato and blocking nut as well as in-house tuners. Finally, the electronics consist of a set of Jackson humbucking pickups controlled by a master volume, a master tone and a three-position selector. Also made in Indonesia, the new Kelly KEX will be offered at a price of €679.

Finally, to finish with the guitars of the X series and before attacking the basses, let’s take a look at the Rhodas RRX24, version 2022. We find a body in Nyatoh and a through-neck in maple with graphite reinforcement rod. The novelty of this model comes from the Winter Camo finish which is also reminiscent of the Camo finish from ESP. Laurel fingerboard with a compensated radius between 12 and 16 inches, 24 Jumbo frets, 25.5 inch pitch… we find the fundamentals of the brand. The hardware incorporates a Floyd Rose Special tremolo, a Floyd Rose Special nut and sealed Jackson tuners. The electronics include two active Jackson pickups controlled here by a volume per pickup, a master tone and a three-position selector. Also made in Indonesia, the Rhoads RRX24 will be offered at a price of €819.
