OVERVIEW

A very affordable guitar with great looks, expanded tonality, and playability

The Rogue Rocketeer RR200 combines the features of Rogue RR100 guitar with a basswood body for excellent tone and sustain. It is based on a classic design and was built for ease of playability. A sunburst finish and pearloid pickguard offer custom-good looks. The ultrathin, comfortable bolt-on maple neck makes it easy to riff up and down the 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ease. The humbucker/dual single-coil pickup configuration with a 5-way switch puts an incredible array of tones at your fingertips and the addition of a coil-splitting via a push/pull pot offers up even more tonal options. A 6-screw vintage tremolo lets you have tons of whammy bar fun, while the die-cast tuners make sure you are in tune every time.

Guitar case sold separately.

This is an inexpensive Chinese-made guitar with some good features. I wanted to see how much better it could be with a good setup, and the answer is very good. As delivered, the fretboard was dry as toast and the frets were not finished or crowned. Remove the strings, remove the neck, and a few minutes with a fine flat file fixed that. Oiled the fretboard, tightened the trem so it doesn't move, adjusted bridge height and intonation, slight adjustment to the truss rod (it comes with both wrenches) and the action now rivals some of my "better" guitars. I don't care about the quality of the pickups; like many people I have enough outboard electronics to make almost anything sound like almost anything else. This has a medium-weight body (much heavier/denser than the model 100), cheap but functional pots, serviceable tuners although I am replacing them with locking models. For a few hours' work it now plays well, and I like the 43mm (as opposed to many inexpensive guitars' 42mm) nut, since I have "adult fingers". Do not attempt to replace the plastic nut with bone or Tusq; it's glued in there solid. But for the price, this can be made very serviceable and I would recommend it as a decent beginner guitar.

I was looking for a budget humbucker equipped guitar to alternate w/ my Squier Strat, after trying a few of the usual suspects ( Gibsonish Epiphones, Tursers etc.) I decided that the Yamaha Pacifica type might be a better choice (longer scale, coil tap etc.), I saw this on sale and figured it would be a joke, but found it had some nice features.The styling is reminiscent of the pricey Patrick Eggle New York series from the '90s; in fact its almost a dead ringer for the "Liberty" w/ less expensive hardware. As others have mentioned the neck is very comfortable w/ a nice full feel in adult hands. The tuners are serviceable and much better than the "covered" tuners so often found at this price point, as they are standard size sealed units they are easily upgraded. The bridge is the standard S type import and works well for mild bends and warbles. Mine was even set up to float, w/ the little trick of easing off the interior screws, to replicate a two point term already done. The nut and string trees will need lubrication,& the fret ends will need a dress but it plays well out of the box. I will oil the fret board at the first string change as it seems dry, but nothing serious. The pickups are a bit noisy compared to entry level Fenders, but sound good, the "in between" quack is impressive, and the tone control has usable range which is rare at this price point. The Humbucker is VERY hot and you will need to roll of the volume to balance w/ the sc's but it sounds very good on it's own, pull the coil tap and you can cop some p-90 ish tones. The neck PU does a nice jazz box impression w/ the tone control rolled off; all in all a decent set that doesn't scream for immediate replacement. Finish is attractive (the pearloid PG is a nice touch) w/ a light satin on the neck, application is standard for this price point w/ a bit of ripple on close inspection, but nothing major. At the end of day you will be hard pressed to beat this for the money.

Great for Beginners

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

If your looking for a cheap, decent guitar to learn to play with, them you should get this. Rogue makes good products for great prices. They make great guitars for beginners and nothing more. Don't be complaining about this guitar being bad--it's $130. It's meant for beginners and should be played by beginners.

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

I rate this low end guitar an 8 because the price to quality ratio is unbelievably good. Great value for the money. Although this guitar is inexpensive, it is not a guitar you would be ashamed to own.
This guitar was just delievered today. I bought it as second/practice guitar. I have owned a Rogue bass for several years and still play it from time to time. The Rogue bass was a good value so I felt comfortable ordering this guitar. I got the gray burst model which has some different features that the standard strat knock-offs. First, the output jack in on the side rather than the front of the guitar. It has one tone control verses the standard 2. It has a bridge coil spliting feature that I think is kind of cool. The body is standard strat thinkness (not thinner like Squire's bullet model). The body looks to be solid wood as opposesed to being laminated wood. The neck wood is maple of good quility. The pearloid pick guard agienst the gray burst body looks much better than picture on MF web site shows. This guitar produces a good strat sound.
The guitar is made in China and came with no printed documentation. The quality is far above what you would expect from a guitar in this price range. The set-up was ok, although the intonation is not perfect.
This is a good value, I feel I got more than my money's worth.

Worship Leader

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

I like the verying sounds you get with the differant pickups and would recomend this to anyone who can't afford a name brand guitar.
I found the Rouge Rocketeer to be a complete surprise.
I took it out of the box tuned it up and it played very well.
Will have to work on the edge of the frets as they are sharp.
I'm not saying it won't need some tweeking but a very good guitar for the price.

Still Like it and got another one...

By Twangin' Bob

from Cincinnati

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

As the title says, I now have both colors of this fine Rouge Rocketeer and dig them both!
Adjust truss rod, file frets, adjust intonation (all guitarists should learn how to do these basics - from youtube, it's easy) and you will be ejoying this guitar greatly.
Get one, work with it, and it will work for you!
Splittable humbucker is "vary" nice for tonality variety (yes, I meant to mispell very).
Feels solid.
Do your own value comparisons.

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

If you think your good enough to be in a band why would you buy a guitar for 130.00 dollars and think your getting a great guitar? This guitar is for beginners,thats what its for, I recommend this for a person that would like to learn.

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

I bought this to have an inexpensive guitar to take on trips or to practice with or play when I didn't want to get out my better gear. When I bought it, it was approximately $72 on sale so I thought I would try it.

The first one had some issues but I could tell it had potential, so they sent me a replacement and the 2nd one was fine.

The 2nd one had great action. I didn't have to tweak anything.

The pick ups aren't the greatest, but for what I wanted it for, they are fine.

I don't think I would have paid more for this guitar, but for what I got it for, it was fine.

One other thing, the input jack was not on the front, it was on the edge.

Good for the price

By Jeffrey Alwine

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

Great guitar for the price.
Good feel, same or better tuners, frets, etc. as more expensive guitars. Great starter guitar.
Needed more tweeking than any guitar I ever had. Luckily there's lots of info on the net on how to adjust necks, etc. Just about every string buzzed onevery fret. Either use it as a learning tool as I did to learn how to set up a guitar or planto take it somewhere to get it done professionally. Also frets have sharp edges that need to be filed.
For 100 bucks you can't beat it.
