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 the fourth guitar that i own, and out of all four, it is my favorite. It has a fast neck with 24 frets. this guitar doesn't have a floyd rose, but it easily competes with the guitars that do. This guitar beats my uncles schecter hands down, and we both play through the same line 6. Buy this guitar!!
i own this guitar and have to say that not only is it a comfortable guitar to play (standing up) but the sound quality is just awesome. i would say that out of my 2 guitars i favor this one more. thanks Jackson
Many people look at you a bit weird when you whip out a Randy Rhoades model Jackson, and then see it has no floyd rose. those people have never experienced a real guitar.i've owned mine since july of 04, and for the price of the guitar, it's a fighter. sit down play is something to get used to. It is very versitle however. the only problem i've had is that one time a wire became loose to the input jack (nothing a quick sauder couldnt solve) after about two years of playing. that and the ends of the wings chip a bit, but i've also had it for 4 years...i HIGHLY recommend this to anyone getting into guitar. it has style,durability, and it demands respect. BUY IT...
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.
This is my sencond guitar, my old one being a crap guitar. The neck is extremely smooth, so it's easy to slide between frets. The 24 frets are extremely accessable, unlike others I've tested. The only thing I don't like about this killer instrument is that it takes forever to get used to sitting down, and the neck is extremely heavy. Other than that, give this baby a try!
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.
this guitar is beautiful.im probably getting it after i work a bunch.i have a ESP LTD m-55.not the guitar ive wanted.its great but this is my dream guitar.i love the stock humbucking pickups and the color chpice for the body.this is my next guitar.
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.
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.
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.
