In addition to rolling out dozens and dozens of brand new products, Jackson has also added several new finishes to some of our existing models.  Although this doesn’t cover nearly all of the latest colors, here’s a quick look at 10 new Jackson finishes — from subtle to shocking!

On the more subtle side or for those who like to commune with nature, Jackson has a few new “au natural” finishes in store for you this year.

Starting with the Pro Series, the SL2 MAH features a beautiful Natural Mahogany finish, allowing the natural wood grain of the mahogany body to shine through. Wrapped in single-ply ivory binding and paired with an ebony fingerboard and black hardware, this new model cuts an elegant figure.

On the X Series front, Jackson has added two new finishes to its popular SLX model. Featuring a basswood body, the SLX can also now be paired with either a koa or zebra wood top. Both offer a more striped wood look that couples nicely with a dark rosewood fingerboard and black hardware.

At our most affordable range, the JS Series Dinky™ Arch Top JS22 DKA is now offered in a bare bones, Natural Oil finish with a fully bound rosewood fingerboard.

For those of you with ice in your veins, Jackson now offers its Pro Series Monarkh in a new Snow White finish, featuring black body around the body and white binding around its ebony fingerboard.

The top-selling JS Series Rhoads JS32 also gets an Ivory facelift, matched with a fully bound rosewood fingerboard , black pickguard and black hardware.

If these classic and subtle finishes don’t have you already allocating your tax refunds, Jackson also brings the shock value with a few choice models.

The Pro Series Soloist™ SL2Q MAH for instance, features an other-worldly vibe with its Alien Burst finish over a quilt maple top. A matching headstock,  ebony fingerboard and black nickel hardware complete this stunning design.

The SL2Q MAH is also available in a vivid Transparent Magenta Burst with black nickel hardware.

The Dinky™ Arch Top JS32 now comes in a drool-worthy Pavo Purple or stage-stealing Neon Orange. Both are paired with a rosewood fingerboard and black hardware.
