Like i said wicked looking guitar bought it but should have played it a little longer at the store.
It seems like it is gonna need a little fret work getting some buzz around the 12th fret, frets look very dull and not very well polished and maybe some nut adjustment pickups really don't sound to bad.. Once i get the neck dialed in it should sound better and from other comments on this particular model some had the same problem.

    Comments about Jackson Special Edition JS32RM Rhoads Electric Guitar:

    For the JS series being entry level it has great craftsmanship. The neck has the same profile as my american Adrian Smith. The tremolo being a Floyd Rose licensed...its not bad either. This guitar will absolutely need a good setup, the factory is awful. The achilles heel of this guitar is the pickups. The bridge isnt that bad. It produces descent harmonics but the neck is simply put...atrocious! Im putting in some Evolutions. This is a great guitar for beginners and novices granted you change the electronics. I highly recommend.

        This Guitar plays great once setup. Sounds thin and generic though. I put some SD Black Winter's and new electronics and wiring. Added Brass block to the jackson/floyd and BOOM. Modern shred machine that sounds as mean as it looks. For the money this is a great little metal shredder.

        Comments about Jackson Special Edition JS32RM Rhoads Electric Guitar:

        Great guitar over all. Frets are a bit flat but no buzz right out of the box after set up. The pick ups are pretty good my only dissertation would be lack of volume out of them but I use a custom made Stonewall Villain Bridge Pickup with some serious output. I recommend a FuTone Floyd Rose block and you got to go with this Jackson.

        For the money you can't beat the look and great low action playability of this Jackson. Special edition = it increasing in value over time.

            Being a huge fan of bands like Anthrax, Children of Bodom, and the like, I've been wanting to get a Speed V for some time. Now, I generally have one criteria when I buy any guitar at this point, that is either a satin or unfinished neck, which, thank god, it does, but this thing exceeded my expectations amazingly, and it really makes me happy to own it.
