Overview

Jackson's entry-level JS Series suits the needs of beginning players, and offers the best in materials, workmanship and value. The Jackson JS30RR Rhoads Electric Guitar features an Indian alder body, bolt-on maple neck with Indian rosewood fingerboard, Jackson CVR2 high-output humbucking pickups, adjustable string-through-body bridge and chrome hardware. Jackson Gig bag included.

The distinct Rhoads V Style body has a cool vibe and allows complete access to the 24-fret neck. The Jackson compound-radius fingerboard has more curves more at the nut for easy chording and flattens out towards the body for shredding lead work. This is a fitting axe for its namesake.

This is an amazing guitar! I was a little skeptical at first, but as soon as i picked it up, all of my doubts were gone. This guitar has an amazing feel to it that ive never seen in a guitar that's this cheap(it fells almost as good as my Gibson Les Paul). The neck and shape is one of the most comfortable ive ever played. My only complaints are that it's hard to play sitting down (get an angled cord, it helps) and the pickups are only OK (they still sound good, even through clean tones) I highly recomend this guitar!

This guitar looks good. It sounds good also. But it feels so bad when your playing it! The neck is heavier than the body which makes playing very difficult, expecially when you slide or solo because you have to hold up the neck with your left hand (or right if your a lefty).

THIS...IS...BRILLIANT...

By JacksonRandyRhoads

from Beaumont CA

Well, I went to GuitarCenter for mt birthday, and I played ESPs, Deans, B.C. Riches, and Jacksons. This stood out. I was on a low budget, as I was looking for a good amplifier as well, and this guitar is the most bang for your buck. It has fantastic, bluesy cleans, all the way to death metal solos. The neck feels great, and the fingerboard is soothing to the touch. The hardware works great, and looks good. Ohh boy this guitar looks great! There is only 2 things I'm going to change about this guitar: the pickups(although the stocks are FANTASTIC!) and add a Floyd Rose tremolo system.

By Metalblues

i got this guitar for christmas last year and wanted it for a while. i was very pleased with this guitar one thing is that u need to be sure u can handle something as distorted as this. once u get this down ur pretty much set. i highly recommend this guitar as a begginers and even experienced guitarist on a budget.

Sounds Great !!!!

By mattyDee91

from scranton pa

I bought this guitar about a year ago, it sounds amazing especially through a line 6 amp. I usually play with dropped tunings and this is one of the only guitars that i own that keeps its tone when the tunings dropped. I wouldnt suggest buying this if you're a beginer because its un balanced. The bodys too light for the neck which causes it to slope down, you kinda have to hold it with your left hand. Other then that its amazing !

AMAZING

By Danny Axxe

from Monroe, Ohio

I got this guitar a little more than a week ago and it is AMAZING. I've tuned it all the way down to drop A# and still it stays tuned! I also own an ibanez artist gix, and since I got this I have left it to collect dust. The pickups are very responsive, the neck pickup is great for all kinds of thrashy distorted tones and the bridge has a deep, rich clean sound. Only problem is the body shape makes it hard to play sitting down.

Amazing Guitar

By Mark

from Jersey City, NJ

This guitar is amazing. For a low end model, it sounds great. I use a pretty cheap amp, but my rhoads stills screams. The stock pickups sound great, but i plan to replace them with a pair of EMGs. Only downer would be that the neck weighs more than the body, causing it to droop. But, nothing a good leather strap won't fix.

JACKSON RANDY RHOADS!

By MetalHead

from Beaumont CA

This is amazing! It is lightweight, but, certainly not the sound it packs. Man, this baby dishes out LOADS of heavy upon heavy! The clean tone isn't bad either. This beats any other guitar in the price range. By far. This will be the only guitar a metal master will ever need if you change the pickups to an EMG 81 at the bridge and EMG 85 at the neck.(The stock pickups are great though)I recommend this to any metalhead on a budget.

Great Guitar

By brandon mcduffie

from lakeland,fl

I have had this guitar for about 2 and a half years now and the better i get, the more it amazes me. the stock pickups are okay, but i never use the anything but the bridge pickup on distortion. the neck pickup is great for "..and justice for all" clean tones but if you want an old skool metallica sound or a modern hardcore tone, i would recommend replacing the pickups with emg 81/85's. all together it is a great starter or mid ranged guitar. if you are a little bit more experienced, i would recommend a more expensive guitar.

Awesome Value!

By Brian_M

from Carol Stream, IL

I received this guitar for my birthday last February and I love it! The neck is the perfect size for me and the fretboard is nice and smooth. This guitar rocks when you plug it in to a amp, I have a Raven RG20 Guitar Combo Amplifier a pretty cheap amp and it still sounds amazing. The only problem I have with this guitar is playing sitting down is awkward because of the shape of the body. I would recommend this guitar for a beginner and a nice backup for anyone else.

R.I.P. Randy Rhoads!!!

By Mr Crowley96

from carrollton, ohio

I went into guitar center ready to look around. I tried out a few other guitars, an epiphone les paul custom, an epiphone dot, and a fender deluxe player stratocaster. but when i started looking at the jacksons, thisone caught my eye. I asked if i could play it and the salesman got one down for me. I hooked up to a marshall mg15 and started blasten out the solo for Over the Mountain. And i gotta tell ya, this guitar was amazeing the pick-ups were perfect for that diary of a madman-late rhoads tone the neck was fast and it stayed in tune after a few rhoads-style neck bends. All in all, i think this is a stripped down straightforward shredder worthy of Randy Rhoads himself.

Man this guitar is awesome

By Marco Martinez

from Los Angeles, CA

Wow. This guitar is great. I fell in love with it the first time Im still in love with it. It feels so good when im holding this guitar. The neck feels great. The pickup were kind of bad, but I switched them for Seymour Duncans and now the guitar sounds amazing. I really recommend this guitar for beginners or for anyone who wants an extra guitar. This is a very sexy looking guitar.

Jackson RR

By 6 String Armageddon

from Oklahoma

For lower end model, this guitar kicks butt! I mean, the CVR 2 humbuckers are pretty good in comparison to some other companies stock pickups, it's lightweight and feels great when playing. I left Jackson products alone awhile back, but now I'm back to using only Jackson guitars. Keep the Bloodline flowing!!
