Got one of these on the 'stupid deal of the day' sales. I was one of the lucky ones that got it before it sold out. The guitar was sealed/unopened. Don't know if they had even had it out to inspect it. I will have to say that the out of the box setup was absolutely horrible. The neck had shifted ALOT and needed a really good tweaking to straighten it out. It did come all the way from Japan you know.. anyway, once set up it is really nice to play. VERY fast, comfortable compound radius. GREAT sounding pickups. Nice case. Decent balance on a strap, great tones. The only thing I didn't like was the finish. That thick poly finish is just a tone robber. The fret job is great. Why can't Gibson get a fret job that feels like this on a new guitar? Nice polished ends, NO sharp edges. After I got the neck adjusted the pickups were WAY off, really needed to bring them up. Now it is Rock ready. Seriously, if you aren't at least somewhat adept at minor guitar adjustments avoid. If you were to play this hanging on a wall at a store somewhere you would curse and hang it right back up. Much better now.
this thing is a metal machine! better than any guitar iv ever played!in my opinion it is better than the rr1.
Got this guitar only because it was on the Deal of the Day, I really didn't need another guitar. But I have always wanted one of these Guitars. The title of stupid deal of the day just didn't do this deal justice, I thought the price had to be a typo. I just couldn't pass it up.On to the review:When I opened the box I was really upset, the point of the top fin of the guitar had been badly damaged, but considering the price I paid, I can't complain.Like a previous reviewer stated, it needs to be setup. Mine arrived in horrible condition, but a little tweaking on the truss rod, dropping the bridge, raising the pickups, and changing the strings its all good now. I played the guitar on a Fender Princeton Reissue, and a Blackstar HT-5 Combo. Playing clean or with a little overdrive it sounds find, but it lacks headroom with my setup when I go full on distortion. I plan on replacing the pickups with EMG 81-85 combo later.Overall, I am happy with the playability of the guitar, its got beautiful fretboard work, highly polished frets and a great feel. I am not happy about the damage to the top fin of the guitar, but for the price, I can't complain.
Really nice addition to my collection. Super fast neck, compound radius fretboard, and the neck joint are awesome. Swapped the Duncans out for EMGs, but the duncans sound good just a little short for my style. Quality of components is excellent and its easy to play sitting or standing.
This guitar is amazing! As soon as I took it out of the case I was in love. When I put it on and plugged it in, I was addicted! Plays great, looks great, sounds great . . . what more could you want. I am an EMG pickup junkie, all of my other guitars have them, but I can't make myself take out these Seymour Duncans. The JB in the bridge sounds better in this guitar than in any other I've tried it in. Only issue: you might want to upgrade the screws in the Floyd Rose to something a little tougher. But that's only like $20.00.
I've been playing for the past two years and I've been saving up for this guitr for the past six months. In my opinion, Jackson has always done an exceptional job on the Rhoads line, the only RR I've ever played that didn't handle or sound well was a JS30RR. Features: I dig the Rhoads body style, my only real issue with the way the body is made is the neck dip, but thats about it. I've played my fair share of Jacksons, And in my opinion The Jackson license Floyds are damn near just as good as the real thing. Two volume One tone, so you can do your little machine-gun noises if you want. Construction: I've heard some people say something to the effect that these guitars are bolt on's which is the biggest crock I've ever heard I've never seen an RR5 bolt-on. This guitar has a "Set-Thru" neck-joint so it's a setneck but it plays like a neck through. I've only played this guitar one time, and it left and edeleable impression on me. I'm a sucker for duncans as it is. The JB sounds particularly sweet in a guitar set-up like this. This thing has also got sustain for miles. I'm not a big fan of the Jazz P.U. i'll probably wind up changeing it out for a 59' when I' get this guitar. I love the color's that this thing is avaliable in. My band is kind of an Odd deal anyways. we're essentialy punk meets butt-rock My only real advice for people regaurding this guitar, is yea it looks cool. yea it looks fun. but the onlything I can tell you and it's the same thing I tell everyone, is go play it before you buy it. It might look cool and it mught look like fun but your never gonna know for sure unless you go play it and find out for yourself.
First, though SOLD as one, mine was not a new A-stock guitar but obviously either a return or a factory restock of some kind.Aside from the SD pickups and a Korean Floyd, this was a very typical low/mid-range Asian import, not appreciably better than a cheaper Korean or Indonesian axe except for a very slight bit better fret detailing. MSRP is hugely inflated for what the instrument actually is -- and it's not much.Quality is lower than the price would suggest, with some finish flaws and misaligned pickup mounting. The control circuitry is cheap and suffers the usual V/V/T control peaks and cancellations.The heavy SKB case is really excessive for this instrument and the interior fit is a bit of a tight kludge to get this body in a case shell made for a straight V and not the Rhoads. It would be hard to exaggerate the nuisance aspects of this body style, too.This is an adequate instrument, not more. At the sale discount it was so-so. At regular price, forget it.
Got this on the stupid deal for insane low price,its the black model.My first Jackson guitar after owning hundreds,and must say I am impressed.I had to lower the bridge upon receipt,but the Floyd was close to tune which is always nice.A nice gloss black finish with a different type sound than most guitars I have owned due to the SD pickups I guess.This thing has sustain for daze on end,and the body style fits close to your body and is not awkward at all like some other unconventional shape,very well balanced and with the V shape it allows full access to all the upper frets with ease.I love this guitar..BUY ONE
out of the box it was just barely out of tune.i tuned it, locked it, and proceded to try and jerk it out of tune.the floyd stayed it tune through everything i gave it.the neck is so fast your fingers will bleed.the pickups are passive but the only way you can tell is there is no battery.this thing is a true shredders dream.
