OVERVIEW

A distinctive body shape with EMG pickups and Floyd Rose tremolo.

The fearsome RRMG Pro Series Rhoads from Jackson features an alder body, 3-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and hand-rubbed oil finish, compound-radius (12"-16") ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and alumiloid shark fin inlays, EMG 81 (bridge) and 85 (neck) humbucking pickups with 3-way toggle switching, anodized black aluminum control plate, Floyd Rose bridge, black hardware and Dunlop strap locks.

Crafted with more than three decades of Jackson experience and expertise, Pro Series guitars feature volcanic pickups from pro makers EMG, perfectly sculpted maple necks with hand-rubbed oil finishes, and 24-fret compound-radius fingerboards in rosewood, maple and ebony that curve more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flatten out approaching the body for wicked-fast runs and crazy-high bends without fretting out.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Jackson RRMG Randy Rhoads Pro Electric Guitar:

This guitar rips! With the active EMGs and the coil tapping ability of the neck pick up, you can really get some awesome sounds out of this axe. The bridge p'up, when coil tapped, gives you a crystal clear clean sound without any twang.
The thin, unfinished, compound radius neck makes playing fast effortless.
As with any brand new guitar, I would suggest getting it set up by a guitar Tech to your preferences and playing style. After all, it does have a Floyd Rose. (I laugh when I read reviews that mention a "poor setup" out of the box. Of course it will not be right, it's not set up for your style!) But, back to the axe.
The finish is matte, so don't expect it to shine under the stage lights, but the finish adds to its unique character.
The only issue that I have with mine is that the shark fin inlays are too dark once you're on stage. I purchased a set of glow in the dark inlays for the side of the neck to compensate.
I would highly recommend this guitar if you are in to the "V" shaped bodies. Just remember to get yours set up before you play it. Oh, and strap lock, as well :)

    Comments about Jackson RRMG Randy Rhoads Pro Electric Guitar:

    All in all, this is a good Axe. For its price range, its better than most. I am impressed Jackson has put forth an item like this, since their next available model is nearly $1600 more than this. Ive owned a few RR models over the years, of better quality than this. This one keeps pace pretty well. Thats the jist. Now for specifics:

    Starting with Cons, because thats what people look for:

    1) My biggest grumble is the neck binding. Normally, this would be neat, but the binding is some kind of tortise pearloid material that is grey. The white side markers blend in perfectly, and you cannot see them well, unless you're Batman. Its very annoying. I had to modify them to see them better. Not impressed with this option.
    2) EMG Pickups. I hate them. The world should learn to hate them as well. They are noisy, cheap, and the worst part is they are EVERYWHERE. Kids, do yourself a favor, and take a look at something like a Gibson 500T, a Seymour Duncan Blackout, or even a Charvel/Jackson J-90-BC. These EMG Pickups these days are trash, quit playing them. There is a reason they appear on cheaper guitars. Done deal.

    Pros:
    1) Good neck. Its a sanded satin-like neck, very comfy and smooth. Plays nice. I like it.
    2) Comes with an original Floyd, like more things should at this price range. Fun times.
    3) Push/Pull coil tap: Every humbucker guitar should have one. Dont argue, you're wrong.
    4) Quality: overall its good stuff. Plays good, ditch the EMGs for something more substantial, and I bet it would even sound good.

    ---

    Bottom Line? Yes, I would recommend it.

      Comments about Jackson RRMG Randy Rhoads Pro Electric Guitar:

      So, yeah. I was on vacation in Virginia Beach, and i ran across this beauty at a guitar store. I'd always wanted a Jackson rr1, and was never really convinced that there was another Rhoads-style to my liking. I saw this guy on the shelf and decided to pick it up. The first thing that I noticed was that I LOVED the grey finish and the aluminum inlays (which are kind of hard to see when you're playing). Now, i will say, that if you've never played a Rhoads, well, it takes a little getting used to. I love it though. The EMGs are like a swiss army knife. They can make this thing sound like anything. The neck is as thin as it gets, and the oiled finish is like butter. If you're into radical, fast, and powerful, this is definitely the machine for you.
