    Neck could be a little slimmer. But, overall, a great starter guitar for a child.
    I'm a luthier, and often asked by parents to help them find a guitar for a small child. "But I don't want to spend much," they always say, because they are afraid that their child won't stick with it. I explain that they have to spend a minimum amount of money to get something that plays well and sounds OK -- otherwise, they guarantee that their child won't stick with it and they're throwing their money away. For a larger child, I recomment the Fender Squier Bullet -- but now I've found this for smaller children. Out of the box, though, it needed a little work. So if you're a parent, you may need a little help setting the guitar up. It was not intonated, the bridge needed adjustment (to match the curve of the neck) and there was not enough tension on the truss rod. After that, though, it's a real, playable instrument. At the price, the kid has a chance. If he or she loses interest, you can probably sell it to another parent and get your money back. Not so with the discount store junk out there.
    Good frets. Humbucker pickup sounds pretty good, too.

    I give it a four reason being seems the tuners could be better but what do expect for the price plan to do some mods.
    Can't really say much about features kinda plain one humbucker and 1 volume
    Got the guitar today as far quality think made pretty good not expert but what seen so far it's made well one draw back are the tuners little cheap but time will tell..
    Can't beat it for the price.

    Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

    I bought this in hopes thast the neck would, when set up properly, be playable (most are, provided you're patient with truss-rod adjustments before setting the intonation). This guitar's neck is surprisingly hefty--feels like a 'boat-neck' Esquire, and the frets were seated and filed OK. Tuners and bridge were, as I expected, junk. For my purposes (hot-rodding and decorating), a fair neck and a black body were my criteria: I purchased a Badas s bridge/saddle assembly, a set of Sperzel staggered lock-tuners, and an on/on/on mini-toggle (to let one pickup select single, parallel, or HB).If I cared about 'tone' circuits on guitars (I don't; I adjust my pickup(s) height in its bezel and then leave the tone-removal knob alone--or get rid of it) I'd have installed a stacked vol/tone 'concentric' pot to use the same control-cavity hole for the one vol pot. The one-knob cavity will just fit a mini-toggle along with a knob...The pickup, an 11k HB, is 'serviceable' but clangy, and lacks a pleasant harmonic structure; I got a Carvin 14k 'Super Distortion' HB to fix that....
    I got this Rocketeer, ultimately, for a swirl-paint project, and ensured that, when put back together, it would play and sound great (and be stage-worthy). I put in about three-fifty five on this altogether, and have a unique-looking guitar with premium parts (and a neck-scale that allows awesome note-range within the shape of your hand). I considered this purchase a "bolt-on neck and a body" on which to build my project. I would be surprised if anyone ordered one of these and got a decent, ready-to-rock, halfway set up guitar--for this price you're really buying woodwork and some junk hardware to start a project with. That's what I expected, and just what I got. My project came out so well that I've since bought a 5/6th Ibanez Destroyer to do a similar build with. This Rocketeer is the cheapest neck/body with which to build a project guitar that I've ever seen. I've been offered 3x what I put into it, BTW! All you'll need is a soldering iron, a set of feelers (for string set-up), some real parts....and inspiration.

          Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

          I purchased this for my 9 year old son who is just getting started at guitar. It's a great size for him and he is very happy with it. The quality is very good, especially for the price, and I find it easy to play (I'm pretty much a novice too). If an adult is looking for a slightly more compact guitar, I'd have no hesitation recommending this one.

          One thing to note: I personally think we were sent the wrong color. Our really isn't very purple at all. Its more of a red than purple (see photo). My son didn't really care as it looks good and personally I like it more than the purple one advertised. If it had been for my daughter, she would have not been happy. So unfortunately I cannot say definitively whether or not the picture is misleading -- again, my guess is we got the wrong one.

          Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

          Personally I think the neck width and shape are exactly right. They are standard. No need to make the neck narrower or smaller (just My Opinion). Kids can handle this size for practice. Ever see the small kids in that video in Korea where they are playing Classic guitars? They handle it fine. Quality is not super-refined but it is very good. This is the 4th Rogue guitar I have purchased (large & small ones). I like them all, particularly the body shape and hollow tone. One standard size Basswood and the Pawlonia were too heavy. Be sure to get the Deluxe version !

                I had a luthier tell me this one is a decent guitar for an adult beginner, and as it's a 7/8 size (very hard to find), it's perfect for me. I'm learning on it, and it feels as good as my husban'd more expensive guitar.

                Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

                I bought this for my girlfriend a year ago for Christmas. She is very petite, so she needs a small-scale instrument. This guitar is great for her small hands and short reach. The neck feels good, much like a Fender C-shape neck. The action is good out of the box and low, but not too low. There is little, if any fret buzz. It is a good looking instrument, if a bit plain.

                Now to the bad news - the sound is mediocre, but that's okay, because it is meant to be a cheap beginner's instrument or one for travel. I'm sure that the main cause of the cruddy sound is the pickup, but there is no reason to replace it, as that would cost as much as the guitar originally cost. It sounds good enough to learn on. The main issue that bugs me is that the frets are badly placed, so there are some bad intonation problems, which made chords sound freaky and out of tune, even if the guitar is in tune. In addition, the tuning machines are junk and do not hold the instrument in tune for long. Once again, what do you expect for the price?

                The strings that it comes with are junk and must be replaced immediately. I put some ultra-light 9 gauge Rotosound strings on it for her and it is super fast and feels like butter. It plays effortlessly, as I am used to heavy strings and a high action.

                It is still a good small-scale beginner's guitar and I would recommend it for that purpose.

                  GREAT Metal Machine at a GREAT Price!

                  Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

                  Whether as a first guitar or for use onstage, this is a great addition to your arsenal!
                  The Rocketeer offers a scale slightly shorter than a Gibson (longer than a Byrdland) which allows more extreme string bending. The singe bridge pickup has great tone, especially when distorted, and the lack of a tone pot keeps the signal hotter and puts tone controls where they belong: on the amp. This would be perfect for an entire set or as a second guitar for specific songs. It gives you the optons of a Lest Paul Junior at an insanely low price. The guitar is worth more in parts alone! The tuners are good and stable and quality overall is first class. You can't go wrong buying one!
                  FIT AND FINISH ARE FIRST RATE!
                  A professional grade guita at the price of a clunker!
