Great little guitar for the price

By Michael Oliver

from Huntington Beach, CA

Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

This is a decent first instrument for beginning players. The build quality is good and the finish has been quite good on the 4 or 5 Rocketeers I have seen. I have been a guitar teacher for many years and regularly recommend this as a first guitar for my students.

    Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

    I wanted a goof around guitar and thought I'd give the 7/8 scale neck a shot since I have fairly small hands. The good news is that the scale works well for me since you can move around a little faster on it. However, I think Rogue missed an opportunity by not making the neck proportionally narrower. It has a standard 43mm nut width. Would have loved to have seen this in a 41mm.

    Anyway, the finish is really quite nice. I didn't see any flaws anywhere (your mileage may vary with Rogues though). The pickup is decent although because it's at the bridge, it's going to sound thinner. I think a compromise location maybe an 1" further forward would have been better.

    Intonation out of the box was fine and no, I don't miss the tone control at all. I'm giving thoughts to replacing the volume knob with a pull tap to go from humbucker to single coil which I've done on other projects. Some have complained about the fret work being a bit clunky on the edges. Yeah a teeny bit but that is quickly knocked down with a fine file or careful sanding. Tuners are much better than average for a cheapo guitar. Smooth and hold well. All in all, this is a bargain at the fifty nine buck price.

        I got a red one on sale figuring I could use the neck for a short-scale project. The 43mm nut was the main selling point. Great neck and finish. Will add Teisco tremolo and better pickup. Everything else is perfect.

        Comments about Rogue Rocketeer RR50 7/8 Scale Electric Guitar:

        I have been a playing professional for 30 years and also build guitars as a hobby. I purchased my first RR50 for a recording project that I figured the 23.25" scale length would be perfect for, and found out quickly that this shorter scale is actually amazing for just about any tuning (with proper string gauges) or genre. The body sits perfect in classical position and the slightly smaller overall dimensions allow for extended jamming/practice/recording sessions with minimal fatigue.

        This guitar did require some basic care and setup out of the box to make it a proper playing instrument; which is expected of any of these inexpensive guitars that are shipped to you in "straight from the factory" condition. The fretboard material was very dry and had shrunk which caused the fret ends to protrude and be uncomfortable. A couple applications of wood conditioner fixed this and made the rosewood really beautiful. The strings were oxidized and 'dead' sounding, which I had already planned to replace with a set of Dunlop Heavy Core 11-50 anyway, and while I had the strings off; I took the time to smooth the fret ends and roll the fretboard edges and polish each fret with 0000 steel wool.

        The original pickup is a Ceramic Humbucker with an output of 15.75k and sounds fine, but lacks character and loses note definition under moderate to high gain. However, I had planned to replace the pickup anyway since I was targeting a specific tone and put a Seymour Duncan JB in and kept the pot and output jack as they are work perfectly fine.

        I was surprised by the good quality and fantastic stability of the tuning machines (make sure to check shaft play and tighten as needed). The nut is a typical synthetic bone material much like you see on Fender Squiers and was properly slotted. In fact, it handled the 11's just fine without any modification.

        This guitar played flawlessly and sounded amazing all through the recording sessions, and it is now a favorite of mine, so I've bought 5 more
