Overview

New Jackson X Series guitars are loaded with purebred Jackson DNA-hot humbucking pickups, bound compound-radius fingerboard with the distinctive shark-fin inlays, and stunning finishes. Classic Jackson models imbued with the X factor, with fantastic tone, ultra-fast playability and unbelievable value for 21st century guitarists.

The Jackson Rhoads RRXMG has a basswood body, through-body maple neck and active EMG 85 (neck) and 81 (bridge) humbucking pickups that deliver well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids and crunching highs. Its bound compound-radius rosewood 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. Other features include Floyd Rose Special double-locking two-point tremolo, 24 jumbo frets and three-way pickup switching. Case sold separately.

Comments about Jackson RRXMG Rhoads X Series Electric Guitar:

Because of the active EMG pickups in it, I removed the 9 gauge strings and replaced them with 10s, and then tuned it to D Standard. The pickups sound great, heavy, not muddy, pick up the harmonics well. The Floyd Rose was a nightmare to get balanced, but once it's done, it shouldn't need touched for a while. After adding the heavier strings to it, it had a lot of fret buzz at the lower end of the neck, but loosing the truss rod a couple of turns seems to have cleared it up. It still buzzes in a few areas, but it doesn't come through the amp so I'm not that concerned with it. The one downside I would say to this guitar (and this is obvious just looking at it), it's almost impossible to hold comfortably while sitting. But that's the price you pay for the Rhoads shape. It's got a really thin neck which makes playing it very quick and smooth. This is a solid guitar that plays very well, however I think a more reasonable price would be closer to $600 not $700, given the fact it's an import.
