In 1987, I got my first electric guitar, it was a Series A. it was a Jackson copy.

Two months later i was starting a band ! My best friend got himself a Series A bass, black precision copy. We were in heaven !!!

It is really hard to find information about it, so i decided to create a blog about those guitars. My goal is to find more informations about the history of those guitars.

The only thing that I know is that it was distributed by Kief Music LTD in Surrey, BC, Canada.

Some say that it was made in Korea.

The blog is here to share informations about those instruments, so, if you have any information, please feel free to share it with us !!!!

thanks

Rainbow Music Shop



Gilles, from Rainbow Music Shop in Cornwall, Canada wrote me :


I had sold a "tonne" of those (over ten years ago).
They were a private label brand owned by Kief Music, to compete primarily against Samick's and the like back then.
All the ones I carried were made in Korea and, yes, the majority of them were Jackson styles.

  10. Series A guitars were made by Samick in Korea. They were the bigger manufacturers of guitars in the world at that point. Here is a link on their website. http://samick.wikia.com/wiki/Samick_Wikia
