About
The Rhoads family gave Mike Shannon and Chip Ellis (who worked on this guitar and the EVH Frankenstein guitars) access to Randy's guitar, Mike and Chip then rebuilt Randy's guitar down to every nick, scratch, and spec. It includes the black non-reflective tape on the back of the guitar that Sharron Osbourne made Randy put on the guitar on the Diary of a Madman tour so that when the lights were dimmed before the show started, Randy would flip his guitar up so that it would not reflect any light to keep the stage totally dark.

History
The original Concorde was built in 1980 and designed by Randy and built by Grover Jackson, Tim Wilson (Jackson Custom Shop), and Mike Shannon (masterbuilder). The Jackson Concorde was built by Mike Shannon who worked as builder at Charvel for Grover Jackson and was specifically built for Randy Rhoads. Grover thought the design was so extreme that he didn't want to put the guitar under the Charvel name which in turn, led to creation of Jackson Guitars. The original guitar had been kept at the Rhoads' family school since his death, and they say the case has not been opened in over 20 years when Chip Ellis and Mike Shannon arrived to inspect and measure every aspect of it. Amazingly, the neck was straight, and it was still in tune. One of the most noticeable customizations that Randy did to his guitar is the black tape all over the back. Randy was one of the most influential rock guitar players in history, and this is the defining Randy guitar. The guitar comes in a stenciled anvil case, and the whole project has the Rhoads family blessing.
