OVERVIEW

The Rocketeer RR100 electric guitar is Rogue's take on a classic design, built for ease of playability. It is constructed with a lightweight contoured double-cutaway paulownia body. The ultra-thin, comfortable maple neck makes it easy to fly up and down the 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. The humbucker/dual single-coil pickup configuration with a 5-way switch allows for a wide variety of tones. 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.

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.

Great little guitar for the price

I normally play acoustic/electric but needed an electric for a few new songs.

    Comments about Rogue RR100 Rocketeer Electric Guitar:

    If I had a guitar like this one when I started to learn to play? It would have been a lot easier, and I would have learned faster.
    What I started out with, cost much more than this guitar and the strings so high it hurt the fingers to play.
    So I didn't practice as much and long as I would have if I had this guitar.

        Great value and the neck feels great and I love the tone as well. Still not staying in tune all that well even after a string change after initial delivery.

          Comments about Rogue RR100 Rocketeer Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar for my son, knowing that he may or may not stick with playing guitar. But, I have been playing for many years and was surprised at they high level of quailty of this guitar. The neck has this natural finish on its back that I like a lot. It feels fast, I do not favor the high gloss finishes on necks of some guitars.

          Then the pickups sounded good, better than the stock ones of other starter models.

          The finish looks really nice, a deep blue with a hint of purple.

          The main surprise was when I checked the 12 fret harmonics and those were in tune!

          The downside is that they used thin fret wire, so experienced guitar players will feel awkward. For a beginner, they probably will benefit from needing a lighter touch to fret. For this reason, I would not consider it a practice guitar for an experienced player. But if this guitar had med jumbo or jumbo frets...

          There is a designed gap between the fretboard and the body at the 22 fret that looks awkward but hey, look at the price point.

          In all, as I tested it I kept telling my wife how much quality our son will get for what we paid. Definitely a huge bang for the buck.

            Comments about Rogue RR100 Rocketeer Electric Guitar:

            Let me start by saying that over the years I have owned around 100 solid body electric guitars. I built several of these from scratch. I have also bought some lower end guitars and heavily modified them (change pickups,tuners, pots, and do some fretwork ect.) in order to get a great playing instrument. I bought this on a whim, I really wasn't looking for another guitar. MF had it on sale and based on reviews here I figured it would be good for parts if nothing else. Well, this guitar isn't going to be parted out! It played great out if the box (after tuning of course). No truss rod adjustment needed,the action was excellent, intonation was spot on, the frets don't have any sharp edges,the pickups sound really good, the tuners turn smoothly, the controls work as they should, and the finish is flawless! Speaking of the finish, I ordered the blue one (it was the one on sale) but I received the red one. That is fine with me as I preferred the red anyway, and only ordered the blue because the red one wasn't on sale. Summing up, I am very pleased with this purchase. Money well spent!

            Comments about Rogue RR100 Rocketeer Electric Guitar:

            So I found this little diamond in the rough at a local pawn shop ( sorry mf) played on it for a few minutes and was initially impressed by the super low action and thin neck. They had it on sale and I've been looking for something cheap to start learning some Luthier stuff on. After I brought it home I immediately took it to the workbench. After changing strings, tightening the knobs and input jack, oiling the neck and fretboard and throwing in a seymour duncan distortion in the bridge It honestly makes a great shred instrument! The one bad thing I can say about it aside from weak stock electronics is that the finish chips very easily. I took a nickel size chunk out just getting the wiring cover off :/ overall I would consider it a great platform for people just starting out or wanting to learn to mod their own instruments without fear of ruining the guitar.

              I bought this last week. I am not a very experienced musician. I have played for about 6 months. However I have played expensive Fender guitar too. This guitar is pretty close to a Fender Strat. I didnt notice any fret buzz like someother people. I didn't have to set this up or anything. The minor thing is that this cannot hold the tune for a long time. Still its not a big issue. It is a very great looking guitar. great craftmanship. I love my new guitar.
