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.

Don't expect to play it straight out of the box. Intonation wasn't even remotely close. It sucks to play a guitar that can't be tuned right. I'm gonna probably have to take it in and pay to have it done cause I'm not very good at it and its so far out it'll take me forever :( Other than that it seems OK but right now its unplayable

    For the money (got it on sale) it's pretty good. Know what you're getting into and you'll be fine. I'm planning on swapping out the pick up and maybe upgrading the nut and saddles. I'll be using it as a travel guitar for jamming over friends' houses. Came with a gig bag, 2 cables, picks, and a strap, so added bonuses there.

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

    Purchased it for practice reason during lunch break. Guitar looks really great, great finish and tone. What sucks is the quality of the frets. At the ends of the metal frets, they are really sharp and it makes it difficult to slide. I will probably need to work on these to make them smooth. Otherwise good practice guitar for the money.

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

      I had wanted a short scale guitar for a while, as I enjoyed playing a neighbor's old Fender duo-sonic. This was an amazing buy on SDOTD. I like that the single pickup is placed well, giving a bit more bass, and having just a touch of strat quack. I'm not a beginner, and this is not necessarily a beginner's guitar, as the neck is substantial enough for most adults. The tuners and all equipment are just fine and do not need replacement.

      I thought enough of the little beast to install an xtrem bigsby and a wilkinson roller bridge. It is fun, though not quite a dive bomber.

        Too good to pass up for the price. Came with a decent bag, picks, cord, strap and allen wrenches! Yeah it's a cheap guitar, yeah you should replace the strings asap and yeah you'll have to adjust the action but it's a nice instrument that sounds good with the right amp. Got it on sale and it was dirt cheap. Already got my money's worth and a whole lot more.

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

          Amazing quality guitar considering its price point. I am very happy with it,it is beautiful with flawless wine burst finish. It's great for a kid to start on.The strings on it seem to be 8's and are very loose. Order a set of quality strings with it you will want them. I'm going to try 11's on it and adjust it after I make the hour drive for a set of strings.The truss rod will need to be adjusted for best results. It arrives well packaged all wrapped up and in a gig bag. I wouldn't put it back in the gig bag without its factory wrapping,the bag is mostly for shipping in my opinion. You may want to order a decent bag with it as well. For intonation the spring on the low E needs to be deleted or cut in half other than that it tuned up well.All of the ugly wording on the back of the headstock is on easily removed stickers. It comes with a few picks a cord and strap as well.
          I intend to swap the pickup with a TV jones and was going to add a Bigsby but there is not enough real estate for the Bigsby so I guess I'll go with a stetsbar. The machine heads seem ok but it's hard to tell with the original strings I'll probably swap them out as well. I'm trying to build an arm chair tone machine out of mine.

              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.

              Very happy with purchase

              About Me Novice

              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.
