A great beginner's guitar built for ease of playability.

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.

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:

this guitar is okay for the price, but the tremolo is crap. plus, 3 of the strings have already broken, and the second fret is unplayable for me after just 3 weeks of playing. buy it only if you're out of money...

Comments about Rogue RR100 Rocketeer Electric Guitar:

I bought the RR100 on the "Stupid deal of the day".
It's the best deal I have ever made on anything,period.Yes,this guitar is not finished off,with the quality of a higher priced modal,but it plays'incredibly,for a cheap guitar.I have light gauge strings' on mine and I can bend notes' and gain speed,like never before.I don't use the whammy,because I really don't need to.I can pretty much get what I want,just by playing straight-out!
I have an Epiphone G-400 and a Madeira-strat-copy and honestly,this little guitar out-shines both of them!I have been able to pick-up more lead-licks' on this guitar,than the others' and you can get around on the neck like lightening!I've been playing for some years' now and I would recommend this guitar to anyone!I know the better players' will scoff,but this guitar is really quite astonishing.I don't see how they can build something that plays' this well,right out of the box,for so little money.I am beginning to think that this is one of those guitars'that,down the road people will say,"I wish I had bought ten of them,back then"!!!!!!Honest,No Jive!
The style I like to play is somewhere in the genre of "Jimi Hendrix/Stevie Ray Vaughn" and this guitar gets' me there,with ease!Nice tone,too.If it broke,the only thing that I would do different,is get the"blue"one instead of"Black"

Cheap but good

Comments about Rogue RR100 Rocketeer Electric Guitar:

Factoring in the price, this guitar is amazing.

However, if you have $1000 to drop on a guitar, or are a guitar snob... get an American Strat or something!

This is not a $1000 guitar!!! don't expect it to be.
A somewhat gimpy trem, all sorts of coils, and enough frets to keep most guitarists happy. All you really need for rocking out.
cheap, cheap, cheap... but the price is right.

The trem sux (as mentioned above). I recommend taking off the bar, and locking it altogether... even more expensive trems have trouble with tuning issues...

Don't fret about the trem though, come on... it's cheap!! and it sounds GREAT overall (minus the wonky off tune notes you'll get if you don't do something about the trem). Fret about the frets... the frets needed to be filed a bit on the guitar I purchased for a student of mine, the neck was literally not safe to shred upon...
For the price, this guitar seriously cannot be beat (low end, entry level, pre-rock-star, backupidontcareaboutitbutitsoundsnice).

At this price, you could rock out a gig and set it on fire at the end... and you'll sound very good during the gig too!

    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!

        My only real complaint is I ordered the guitar in blue and it came in black. It's too much of a hassle to return it just for the color. If I had ordered a guitar and gotten an oboe then that would be different.

            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 $$

              This is not a high end guitar so don't expect one. But what it is, is a solid playable instrument with a little work. Mine was playable out of the box. New strings, neck adjust, and lowered the pick ups. Stays in tune and that's a plus in its self.
