Comments about Jackson RRT-5 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar:

This has quickly become my favorite guitar. The neck is fantastic, I was able to get really low action with no fret buzz or dead notes. The neck feels very good in hand and pinch harmonics and tapping really ring out clear. The guitar is light, just under 7lbs. The genuine Duncan JB pickup works well with this mahogany bodied guitar and has great tone. It has more bottom end than my EMG 81 equipped guitars and a darker, more powerful sound. The RRT-5 is perfectly balanced, with none of the neck dive that plagues other "V" shaped guitars. The fit and finish of this guitar is also good: the paint and binding are near flawless, the gold hardware looks great, and the ebony fretboard is awesome. The guitar came with Dunlop strap locks already installed. The only thing I changed was the stock tuners with Planet Waves locking ones, for easier string changes( a direct swap). I wouldn't let the fact that it is made in Indonesia worry you, this is a well made guitar. I had a Japanese made Jackson back in the 90's and this every bit as good, you couldn't get one with these specs( neck through body, ebony board, genuine Duncans) for this low of a price back then.
