The Jackson Performer series of guitars were built by the Jackson guitar company from the 1990s until the early 2000s. Based on the Kelly, Dinky and Rhoads model body designs, the Performer series used lower quality parts and construction materials compared to their American-built counterparts. The lower build quality allowed these guitars to be sold at a lower retail price and be targeted toward beginning and non-professional guitar players.

Performer series guitars featured a wide range of build materials and electronics during their nearly decade-long manufacturing life, but usually featured a bolt-on maple neck, rosewood fretboard and passive pickups. Depending on the model, the guitar would also have a three- or five-way pickup selector along with volume and tone controls.


The Jackson Performer series guitars can be identified by the Performer label written in small font along the front of the headstock next to the Jackson label. The model type, such as PS4 or PS-37, is also located on the neck near the headstock.
