tjon901's review"The real Alexi signature model"

Jackson Randy Rhoads RR24
Jackson does okay in listening to its customers but sometimes they are really late with their models. People were asking for this model for years when Children of Bodom where one of the biggest metal bands around. When the band was becoming huge their frontman Alexi Laiho used a Black 24 fret Jackson RR with a single EMG in the bridge and paint on the bevels. Everyone wanted a guitar like that but you could only order one through the infamous Jackson Custom shop, and if you did that you would probably end up waiting 50 years to get it. Finally Jackson deicded to put out the guitar but only after Alexi Laihos personal guitar got stolen and he switched to ESP guitars. Laiho stated that he went to Jackson to get a replacement but they could not make him one in time. Now Jackson has it as a regular model and it is pretty reasonably priced. You get the Classic RR shape with a 24 fret ebony fretboard with the sharkfin inlays. The electronics are dead simple. It has an 81 in the bridge and a volume knob. Floyd Rose with a locking nut finishes the guitar off.


With the RR shape the upper frets are not as easy to reach as they are on most Jacksons but overall the playability is good. The ebony fretboard feels good under your fingers. The neck through design means there is no heel so that is good too. Jacksons at these levels come with compound radius necks. The neck radius moves from 12 to 16 as you go further up the neck. This means that on the higher frets the radius is flatter making it easy to bend but on the low frets its more curved making chords more comfortable. The Floyd Rose on this guitar is of a good quality and will stay in tune when properly setup.


With the 81 in the bridge this guitar is a metal only machine. EMG makes some of the best pickups for metal. Many players around the world have used these pickups for years. They are active so they need a battery to run. They have a built in preamp which boosts the signal from the strings. The 81 gives you a nice high end gain. You can get an awesome metal tone for modern metal music with this pickup. The sound is tight and punchy. With just the 81 in the bridge the guitar is not that great for clean tones. If you want to make the guitar sound even better with the EMG pickup you can do the 18v mod. With the 18v mod you run the pickup on two 9v batteries instead of one. This gives the guitar a more natural sound overall. It increases the pickups headroom and gives you a more organic tone.


A few years ago these guitars would be flying off the shelf. Since Alexi switched to ESP new fans of the band have no idea of their history with the classic Jackson guitars. Old school fans of the band will love these guitars. Metal players in general will like these guitars. The shape is metal and they come with metal pickups. What else do you want?

This beautiful Japanese.
24 frets, a EMG81.
original floyd rose !!
a single volume knob.
good handle jackson painting.
it has keys bne.


The handle is for me a perle.En effect that is late, and parfais for a quick game !! (good point !!)
The access to the very acute ais !! we see a little more difficulty level 3.4 desti- nations most recently frets!
we get a good sound because it is a quality scratching !! I have an amp 15watts so the I can not tell, but the sound is already very good !!!;)


It suits very well to my musical style, namely the Mtal !! Please do not rely on this guitar in other areas !!
I play with a pourrave amp !! lool.en effect I play with a Marshall 15 watt! in my opinion I would draw a much better sound with any other amp !!
the sound is rather cold it also allows you to make sharp enough !!! muted palms is perfect for Mtal !! sound is powerful !! is impeccable!
the clean distortion is horrible but it sends logs !!!;)


I use it for one week !! well it's a shovel coronation !!!
I like to sound distortion, its shape !! killeuse and above all it does not sting the nose.
I do not like the clean but good sound !!
I think That a humbucker at the neck would be wise for a little more versatility !!
for distortion if you found the sound acute, you can surely make necessary adjustment on Lampl
it remains very onreuse.
I'll probably do it again this choice or I might be hesitated with laiho esp esp sv or a Standard!

raphiki2's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not bad!"

Jackson Randy Rhoads RR24
So Easel floyd rose (real), a micro emg 81, a volume knob, a handle end a little extra to the ibanez but more comfortable and slippery. The paint is gold and black, nothing to say at the features, this guitar is great!


The handle is very nice, access to more than treble is easy. The form may pose some difficulties in sitting game, but you get used to it especially that the horns are rather thin so in the end you hold the guitar on the left leg and ca not pose a problem.


I tested this on a big guitar amp Marchall, and the small disappointment! Already there is only one emg 81, which is rather good for the metal, but for the clear sound even when it lacks an emg 60. It requires almost a dedicate this guitar has the distortion that is unfortunate.


I went to the store to try it even if my choice was rather on a flying V (unbeatable value for money) and I'm left with my Flying V, even when that is far above. The RR24 is very beautiful, well finished, extremely comfortable, but the single emg 81 putteth not really worth. If she had had an emg 60 or 85 more I left with, it's on!
This is a good guitar, but which lacks versatility.
