Birth of RR Concorde
On 12 23rd, 1980, Randy Rhoads found Grover and showed him a different designed guitar drawing, which was developed totally by Randy Rhoads himself. The pattern was based on the previously built polka dot V. The first Concorde was a little larger, as Randy Rhoads was fairly shorter, therefore the guitar was then altered and shrunk a little. Because of its innovative appearance, the guitar was called as Concorde. It's the first electric guitar bearing the Jackson badge on headstock and is regarded as a milestone of Jackson company. Within the readers' investigation of the Guitar World magazine's twenty fifth anniversary, the electric guitar was referred to as essentially the most representative electric guitar in history.

Polka Dot V used exactly the same design. That is the result Randy desired. And our items also use the identical Fender styled tremolo system.
