Overview

The strikingly designed Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Electric Guitar is a great guitar for its price. Alder body (with flamed maple top on the transparent finishes), maple neck, compound-radius rosewood fretboard, jumbo frets, Floyd Rose-licensed Jackson low-profile double-locking tremolo, Seymour Duncan JB (bridge) and Jazz (neck) humbuckers, volume/volume/tone with 3-way switching, and black hardware.

Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

metal-head's dream

By Garland B

from michigan

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

this guitar rocks! i loved this guitar from the moment i saw it so i bought one a couple months ago. coupled with some superslinkys, this guitar rocks. although the seymour duncan's are nice, an emg 85 in the neck and an emg 81 in the body sound a lot nicer. this guitar is great for sitting around playing, band practice or doing shows. it looks pretty and playes nice, too. the shape takes some getting used to and the tips chip easily, but i lve it anyway. the floyd rose is a nice feature along with the locking nut so it doesn't go out of tune. one problem is that it takes forever to change the tuning from d to c because you have to reset the springs. but i strongly recomend this guitar to any metal-head like myself.

WOW! Simply Amazing,

By Sid

from Utah, Eagle Mountain

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

I have had this guitar for several months now and after i put my ideal strings on it this thing felt amazing. It is kind of funky to sit and play at first but you get used to it pretty fast, the pickups are pretty good and the neck feels amazing. This guitar is also probably one of the lightest electric guitars i have ever held. so anyways, if you love to shred, this is a deffinate shreader guitar and it is deffinetly worth every penny.

Jackson Rhoads ROCKS!!!

By Kid Khaos

from Midland, MI

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

I bought this guitar about a week ago and I LOVE it. It has amazing tone on both pickups. I have yet to experiance any problems with it. You can give the RR3 a brutal beating on the whammy bar and never have to worry about it going out of tune. The price was amazing. Nothing I have played can compair to this masterwork. I have played on both clean and heavily distorted tones and it sounds AMAZING on both.

Awesome

By TSMF

from Oregon

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

I bought this guitar about 1 year ago and it still plays excellent. The pickups are straight foward for metal tone. Some people might have to get used to the neck heavy design but that is easy to get over after a little play time. I would suggest the guitar to headbangers, and avoid it if your looking for Beatles, Clapton, 60s era tones.

I Love It!!!!!!!

By Daniel

from La Puente, CA

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

This Guitar is amazing!! I Bought this guitar about 4 years ago and it hasn't let me down. The Neck is really smooth and the shape of the body is great!!The Guitar is really light and it's very comfortable while sitting or standing....i only made a few adjustments to it like changing my humbuckers to EMG's and it sound even better....especially when your shredding, it sounds so clean you just don't wanna stop!!!!

AMAZING!!!

By Christian Metal Head

from AR

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

I first saw this guitar at the GC grand opeing in my area. I picked it up, and it was perfect. I loved everything about it. Before I found this baby, I had my heart set on a Gibson Faded V. The RR3 blew it out of the water. the Gibson couldn't compare. The Seymore Duncan JB and Jazz pickups wail, I still intend to swap them for a pair of SD Distortion pickups. The unfinished maple neck is smoothe as silk, and the finish (black) is beautiful. And don't listen to people when they tell you "It's hard to play sitting down.". All in all, it's a great buy. Don't think twice, just go for it... Now.

Randy Rhoads Lives!

By RandyRhoadsRock(ed)

from Newberg, OR

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

i bought this guitar used about 3 months ago, and it has been AWESOME! it came without the Duncan Designed pickups because they suck compared to a set of EMG 81/85 active pickups. so i dont know how the real Seymour Duncans sound in the newer ones, but im assuming they sound awesome, because theyre in the RR1, too. the thing that i like least about it is the "Licensed under Floyd Rose" Floyd Rose. it doesnt hold its tune very well. overall though, its worth more than the $665-$770 that it goes for here.

Great Improvement over the old RR3's

By The Omniscient One

from Whittier, CA

Comments about Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar (2008 Model):

This guitar is very nice. I really like how they threw in the same duncan's that are in the RR1 models. The old versions were all duncan designed and they sucked. But this guitar is remarkable for the price. I'm very pleased with this instrument
