A 6-screw vintage tremolo lets you have tons of whammy bar fun, while the Rogue Rocketeer's die-cast tuners ensure solid tuning stability. Guitar case sold separately. Case sold separately.

This is a great guitar for a beginner or someone who wants to experiment or use it as a base for a custom guitar. The neck is very nice and would cost more than the guitar if you had to buy it alone. The humbucker is pretty good, and the singles are okay. The factory left some dust under the covers in the back, but that was easily cleanable. I used the stock strings for awhile, but I can say it plays one heck of a lot better with some Ernie Ball Stalinless Steel Super Slinkys.There is a bit of noise when the tone adjustmnet is set all the way clockwise, but you can get new pots cheap or just don't peg the pot all the way.The tremolo is fun, but after I used it for awhile, I locked it down by tightening all the screws as much as possible at the neck end of the bracket, add a block in back, and then reset the intonation. This thing stays in tune just fine!I did have to adjust the intonation which arrived with no adjustment at all, and I did a slight tweak to the neck, but it was pretty good to start with. Instructions for setting the intonation are available in many places online. If you are handy, you can do the tuneup yourself. If not take it to a shop as many do with far more expensive guitars. If it is for someone who will not stick with it, you will save some dough. Someone who really wants to learn will find it adequate with some adjustment. And others will buy it for some useful and decent parts to build a custom axe. The volume and tone knobs are real nice and would run $10-$20 alone, and again the maple and roswewood neck is very nice. The frets were finished better than a comparable Fender I had and many others I've seen. The finish on the body is pretty nice, but I think I am going to strip mine and refinish it someday, or maybe redo the body altogether. The decription does not mention that it comes with a hookup cable. Mine was so noisy, I just threw it away. I had ordered one with the guitar not knowing it came with one. I'd order one anyway. Some people might think it is the guitar causing the line noise, when it is in fact, the cable.Also, get a Fender Mustang I if you don't have a decent amp. It is well worth it and makes this guitar sound really good; much better than the 10W or 15W units that come in guitar packs for just a little more money. There is little else that comes in packs that's worth it which the possible exception of a stand and picks, which should not be a real consideration. You can get better tuners and straps if you just do some research.I think I read somewhere that a pro band buys lots of these to smash during their act. That also means they use them to play their songs.

This guitar plays well and stays in pretty good tune without a clamping system for the price. Complaint is that the color shown is not in the same universe that it came in! (purple burst) You can barely see a color at all, and when you do (in bright light) it is like a wine red. Somebody must have had some spare time with Photoshop. That is the main reason I bought it. If you are not concerned with color I would definitly recomend it for the $$

      As with other reviews the color of the guitar is not exactly like the ad on MF.
      It is a great color though.

        Comments about Rogue RR100 Rocketeer Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is a best buy for the amount that I paid for it. I tuned it up in a couple of minutes & began playing it right out of the box. I was not expecting the sound quality and ease of playing without any adjustments. I originally bought this guitar so that I could remove the pickups and insert them on my old Ibanez Artist. I now plan on keeping this guitar intact and will continue to play it. This was an incredible deal.

          The finish is comparable to products that cost hundreds, if not thousands more. It arrived well setup out of the box. It has good action and the intonation is excellent. The electronics are on the weak side, but excluding that I was amazed by the quality and playability of the guitar.

          Learning to play on a classical and steel string, but needed an electric to use with Rocksmith 2014. It has a nice feel and the neck is smooth and dry, no sticking nor grabbing. Very low action, which is fine except if hitting the low E very hard, you will get fret buzz. Just have to play nice. Very happy with this purchase. Great first electric to learn on.

            I bought this as a "stupid deal of the day". just did it on a whim. Crazy cheap - thought it would be junk. Its not. I own 19 electrics and acoustics. It came reasonably well set up, even the intonation was close. finish good, range of tones, playable, everything works. much better than many of the Squires I have seen. Only minor complaint was the fret ends slightly rough (easy fix). It would be a great gift for a new player.

                    This guitar has solid tone and drive. The neck can be adjusted if desired. The size is comfortable and easy to hold. The black finish is glossy, which gives the guitar a great look. It has two strap buttons, so a strap doesn't require being tied on. It also has a cable output for amp capability. The neck is slightly rough around the frets. Overall, the guitar is well made, and has a full-tone sound.

                      I got one last year (doorbuster) to complete a partscaster. The nice thin neck bolted right on a Tele body and all the other parts to complete it, except the bridge and pickup, were included as a bonus. Got another one this year and although the fret ends were rough, the overall quality was better. Highly recommended for parts but an Indonesian Squire or Epi is a much better starter guitar.

                        I have been a semi-professional drummer for two decades,so I know a little bit about instruments and I play some guitar too. I bought this guitar for my 12 year old son who started his first band. I was ready to put some work on this guitar when it arrived, but I was amazed that the guitar was ready to go right out of the box. It has a great sound and great feel, it is a solid instrument that will last a long time. We got the blue one and it ahs a beatufil finish and glow. If you are reading this you are probably looking for a starter guitar, and that is what this is. But a great starter guitar at that. You can't go wrong buying this guitar. And if you wait for a sale, like we did, you will get it for 2/3 of the price. My son had the option to ask for a big brand guitar (Gibson flying V was his first choice) for Christmas, but decided to hold on to his Rocketeer for a little while longer.
