Jackson PS3 Rhoads
Japanese 22 fret rosewood fingerboard fairly thin
type fixed bridge humbucker through 2micro jackson
a volume a tone selector 3 positions
sleeve type trs ibanez wizard from home plate and screwed fast trs


I love this race a default of the same while the thickness of the hoof at the acute but hey you get used to it.
the weight is respectable but still lightweight compared to a gibson quilibrage and not bad but just not quite the same form kan is one of the charm of this guitar (it's on APRS we like it or not ......) by playing against sitting for the technical work is only possible on a sofa where you can put the horn down (on a chair not even bother), but the essence of this guitar is the guitar is a scne when the sound of no surprise that Jackson has saturated hot and aggressive wishes.


It's a guitar nag let us not mince words lol
mtallica fans, spultura will be happy to sound like their idols (even if it stays well on the entry jackson .... can not have everything)
the branch and my boss gx 700 Valvestate 100 watt AC spits out the sounds are pretty clear with the chorus (like the intro of ONE and Sanitarium) ca claque to play well in hand by renaud's not super clear sound faithful like his lol
And finally to play fast is too good it seems like this guitar is made of por return to the mediator has a 180 black :-))


It's been two years since I have this guitar I like I do not regret my purchase (actually I bought it second-hand and re-painting and I finish it I am not income tr s expensive and even if I cheeks less often than I like my SG
scene is finally on the class of metalheads ensured hhbr />

Jackson PS3 Rhoads
Korean manufacturing cheap, but nice for a small scratch upgrade
the neck has 22 frets, 2 humbuckers, two volumes, one tone, one 3-position toggle switch type Gibson
the strings through the body, it was just a bridge without tailpiece
the handle is screwed

I put a 5 to remain neutral


The neck is thin enough, in the pure standard Jackson and Ibanez, but no frills, no binding, marks round any animals, not fancy
body shape allows access to acute friendly enough, but prevents the game sitting (or by setting the lower point between the legs ... anyway this kind of guitar is not made to sit the game)
the weight is reasonable, but the size of the beast requires a careful if you jump around while playing, because the upper point is likely to take the slightest shock (still weak)
violin making is correct, but as mentioned above, without fantasies
the strings through the body, it has a right to sustain pretty cool, but comes close to a Gibson

I put a 8 for access to acute and to sustain


Not having kept the original pickups, I can not judge them, they were favorably changed by a set of EMG 81 and 85, which in dépotent wickedly distorted (the couple is fairly well matched with the look of the granny all look at her)
I used it on a lot of amps and racks, and microphones go well, clear, full, but it is a characteristic of the EMG, they "embellish" almost any excavator which they are mounted as long as the handle is playable

I put the 10 but for the EMG, (I love EMG)


I use it in cycles from 10-12 years, with hindsight, it is a basic model, may be too well, I do not remember how I had bought at the time but I'm the second or third hand, it has been tuned over the years, microphones, electronics, mechanical (the Grovers)
I prefer being the guitars a little less "cheap" with a richer finish, (such as binding, style guides shark tooth), but especially today sorely lacks vibrato
this remains a very good guitar, with its flaws, however, is a guitar to play metal, its shape is immediately agree, so if you're a bear wire, closed to any other musical style, go for it, otherwise if its eyes on the classical or jazz, are planning a second guitar or go your way.
When I bought this guitar, I was pretty straight forward thrash blocked / disto has the plaster off, I'm a little less radical today, but it is always small effect when I draw.
At the time I shall have made a 10, I would put today 7 for the cheap side and lack of versatility, catching the aggressive side note.

Jackson PS3 Rhoads
It is a 22-japanese guitar frets for me my microphone is amended and are déormais the emg-esp of the Kirk Hammett signature ltd therefore my opinion on this point does not affect original microphone, but the pattern remains the same two micro double with two volume and one tone knob and the three position switch type gibson who is also well placed.
The bridge is a fixed bridge and string through the body.


An important point is a jackson so the handle is very fine, very nice played the access to corect is not too acute gene despite a handle screwed Heelcushion the gene does not really. It is a very light guitar easy to wear. In terms of form it is a randy roads if you do not like V-type guitars go your way if you do plan to play seated cable jack was taken with one end bent as it must once sat wedged V in his thigh and a jack in classiqe out right for the game is annoying and causes a deterioration of the cable. The sound is easy, can be mounted pull cord element without making any special adjustments thanks to the fixed bridge, so the string tension is chosen by the guitarist and his comfort level playing


I play metal and micro being replaced it is very suitable bridge pickup sounds allow a sustained rhythm and tuning dark (for me tuning in C you only need to put the right string gauges) but remains well defined and quite transhant. Regarding my neck pickup tone with a rule severe, undistorted sound is round and hot, which allows a small versatile nonetheless. As for the two régalge MicroX same time the power is to go but loses its cleanliness. The style is also, adapted to the metal due to its aggressiveness. I play with a peavey studio pro 112 that I do not use the otherwise clean j'utilis of distortion effects pedals (see my sheet of material) I also use corus pedal, a whammy wah-wah and more.
I love the riff powerful, clear as dark but also chaining dark very fast.


I was for some days but I already spend much time on it and is already done one repetition with other musicians. the feature I like most is the smoothness of the handle and the ability to offer a warm thanks to the neck pickup. the feature I like least is the fear of losing the belt given the position of the bindings in particular placed BEHIND the neck until this is no accident I said. Deusième feature I like least frailité the peaks of V has to take great care to maintain the aesthetics of the guitar.
value for money is good given the performance that ansi investment that is not so concéquent. For now experience with this guitar because my lack cella is only one day but let say that for the moment I do not regret my choice
