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.

    Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

    These reviews are always interesting to read. I bought an open box guitar, and am very pleased with what I got for the money spent. Finish is good, except for the chip that was fully disclosed in the ad. Neck is very good. Frets are smooth, and not sharp at all. Electronics work as they should. I do plan on using this guitar as a pickup test platform, so I will be pretty hard on it overall. I am pleased so far, but I think I may have to shim the neck to get the action as low as I want it. It is very playable like it came out of the box.

    Ok guitar for beginner

    By Dq

    from US

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

    Bought this guitar on GF from GC after having read the reviews from MF. My intention was to modify it as I have other more expensive guitars but this was cheap enough to try. I went through several to find one with frets that would not slice my fingers, choosing a sunburst model as I didn't care for the silverburst. I didn't want to take the time to undo all the packaging to try it out so I took it home. After I got home, took off the wrapping and tuned her up, i found the switch to be badly mounted and the pickup wiring to be wrong (middle position played neck pickup) and the coiltap didn't go to single mode. Since I got it at a store and not mail order, i took it back and went through more and actually tested it first. I found a good one so I was happy. As for the guitar, I found the pickups just ok though the inbetween positions sound good. Finish and overall quality is fine for a beginner, though my Squier Affinity is more to my liking.

    The quality of this guitar varies a lot so buying online is a crapshoot and I recommend checking one out at Guitar Center and test it if you are going to purchase one. Its good for a beginner or for modding if you get it on sale cheap, otherwise I think the Epiphones and Squiers are better for beginners as the quality control is better.

    Comments about Rogue Rocketeer Deluxe Electric guitar:

    I needed a budget guitar that I wouldn't mind banging on. I play mostly Christian, classic rock, rock...very little country except for some Johnny Cash, Waylon, etc. I like the power chords stuff mainly like The Who. I also playing some lead riffs. I'm not at all disappointed with this guitar...it sounds great in my Marshall, my BC Rich, my Line 6 Spider and even my Kustom. I knocked off a star for the single coil pick-ups; you really have to up the volume to get the full sound out of them even though they are not flat sounding at all. The humbuckers, though, scream as loud and as clean as my LP.
    The neck is a little wider than I like but not so that I can't manage. Just makes it a little difficult on barre chords, but hey, I never was the best at those anyway. All in all, you won't be disappointed with this guitar.

        1st string (E) hangs up under frets not good when power stroking. More attention to fret board from manufactuer should be taken, otherwise pretty cool. Not really for gigging with issues like this..Very stiff feel also...

          Unpackaged this piece as soon as it arrived and noticed something incredibly wrong with the neck. The strings were touching flat against the frets from 1-5; the entire neck was sloped downward in relation to the body of the guitar.

          Took it to my local shop and they performed the following:

          Loosened the truss bolt
          Tightened all tuning pegs; they were all loose enough to just about pull out
          New strings; two strings broke almost immediately after putting tension on them for tuning
          Adjusted all bridge bolts and hex screws
          Shaved burs off edges of each fret

          Thankfully I knew the shop keeper and he repaired/adjusted the unit for under 30. The guitar sounds fine now with the occasional buzz near lower frets.

          If you're looking to purchase a cheap guitar, expect to pay to have it adjusted entirely if you're unable to adjust it yourself.
