MGR/Anonymous's review"Jackson Randy Rhoads Jackson RR3"

Jackson RR3 Randy Rhoads
I got this guitar from Musicians Friend and have not regreted it one bit. I paid $560 plus $40 for custom paint and got my moneys' worth. Ihave always been a Randy Rhoads freak so I had to get it to add to my collection of Rhoads guitars, (I already have the polka dot Vee and the antique white Gibson.)

The tone is like velvet and the construction is top of the line. This is a great metal guitar but is also good for any type of music. It has such a wide variety of sounds between the two Duncan Designer Humbuckers, you can play anything from the Three Kings of Blues to eVh to Angus Young on this guitar, and still go back to all out scream with "The Flick of the Switch."

nothing whatsoever: I don't even need a Straplok!!

It is also a GREAT guitar for beginners because of the flat and thin neck and its construstion and shape is perfect for developing good posture if you play sitting down or any type of classical.

Play hard and have fun, this guitar lets you do both

MGR/Nick's review"Jackson Pro Series RR3"

Jackson RR3 Randy Rhoads
Off of ebay for 300$!! It's used of course but it's still sexy looking.

When I first saw and heard the late great Randy Rhoads freak out on this beautiful guitar, I had to have it. Everything about it is awesome. The lead Floyd Pickup is really hot and it really shreds like nothing else: it has the best action ever. The locking also sustains any kind of weird whammy bar/bending abuse all the time. The rosewood fretboard and sharkfin linlays are wicked too.

Well, not a whole lot, as far as sound can be said against this guitar. The only thing that bugs me that I can't play this sitting down really. The odd (but cool) shape of this machine is just to difficult to sit with. Also, it's jet black, so all the fingerprints are visable. Other than that, it's fine.

Very sturdy. Hold's up well and everything. You just have to find a way to stand it up so it won't fall over beacause of the uneven "V" part.

This is one of the defining points in my guitar playing carrer. This guitar is amazing and every aggressive, metal/hard rock player should have one.

Wintersun94's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a good scratch"

Jackson RR3 Randy Rhoads
- In which country was it made? (United States, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
Made in Japan

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
A licensed floyd jackson, it is not bad at all, it is pretty good tuning I think. After that is a floyd, ie to change tuning, must get their hands dirty. If we know what to expect, it is quite nice.
Only downside: the stem tends to loosen permanent ... but hey, it's just a detail.

- What kind of stick? How many frets?
Bolt-on Maple 22 fret, flat. It's fast, access to acute is pretty easy.

- What types of micro and their configuration?
Two Seymour Duncan humbuckers, including the TB-4 bridge.

- What are the settings (volume, tone, micro switch ...)?
Two volume knobs, one master tone and a 3 position switch

UTILIZATION

- The handle is it fun?
The handle is very nice, fast, very flat (at the same time it is a jackson is reassuring), in short, typical of the brand. Easy access to acute.

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
If you love the form, it goes by itself. Otherwise provide a micro adjustment period.
This guitar tends to sting a little nose, but nothing serious. (And not all guitars of this form does not sting the nose, see the rr24)
It is light enough.

- Gets it easy to sound good?
The pickups were well chosen I find the bridge pickup is very effective in distortion, very powerful, but less cold than emg 81 (but no less powerful), while the microphone in the neck position is downright versatile and clean frankly is correct, or even good.

In short, that's good.

SOUNDS

- They are suitable to your style of music?
I play melodic death metal and this guitar is well suited to my style of music ... But I sometimes venture into the old-school rock and blues, or even a lil clean from time to time and I find my account.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play? I play this guitar amp with a vox vt-30, and the sounds j'obtient suit me. For big sound, I use the shop channel metal, and rock the AC-30. J'obtient sound very fat with the metal shop, and quite dry with the AC-30. The crystal clear, for cons, I have a little trouble. I think it's largely a matter of adjustment.
For effects, I pod 2.0 (not bad, but it is well worth not a pedal)

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? I like the sounds, but I confess that the crunch is, with these microphones, fairly rough.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it? I use it now for over 2 years.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, I tried a cort, I can not remember the model, but a micro y'avais EMG-HZ. I preferred the handle of the Jackson (and look, it must be said, is less that the cort toc)

- What is so special that you like most and least?
What I like is the look, and handle pretty nice. The shark teeth inlays are pretty too: p
What I like least is the fragility of the varnish, leaving at least scrape against a wall. But hey, it's not really serious

- How would you rate the quality / price?
I find the value pretty good, and with experience I would do I think this choice.

Guitar made in Japan.

- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?
22 frets, two Seymour Duncan

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Floyd

- What are the settings (volume, tone, micro switch ...)?
2 volumes, 1 tonalitée, and a three-position selector.

Very good mail, even if I am not a technician jumps to his eyes! For my guitar against a small problem is that when I'm on the mic acute and I put my volume knob to 0 when it sounds Also, I must drop my knob micro serious!
But anyway I replaced all of its by DiMarzio and all is well =)

UTILIZATION

- The handle is it fun?
I think it's awesome! Very fast and fluid ... etc. .... I have had no trouble to spend my last LP was my Randy after his people depend;)

- Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy?
Not really but still good

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
The shape is a cry how beautiful she is! on the other hand I had mine for Christmas and it is already damaged on the sides!
The weight and she looks great a bit forward but anyway when it was in the hand: it is played!

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...
Well ... yeah I find rather versatile! We just do a good big metal precise, the Accor end of the handle has AC / DC (especially the upper) and clear sound not so bad but it's not really the purpose of the guitar ^ ^

I put a 9 because of the shape is beautiful but not practical!

In fact it's pretty easy to play assi!

SOUNDS

- They are suitable to your style of music?
Yes, because I play mostly hard rock and grunge as well as metal, and it sounds even on the red hot chilli peppers even if it is not the best ...

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I play with a Marshall Valvestate s80 has the hold, or a Fender Super Champ XD in my room ^ ^
Indeed a VOX wah wah in a bypass looper Boss RC-2, a DS-2 Bosss, and a Boss DD-3.

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
We obtain the very edge of the upper well I trouve.Des fat on the neck but still very precise! (Basically my heaven ^ ^)

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
I love them all! no exeptions

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
Around three months

- What is so special that you like most and least?
The +: the pallete of sound, light weight and look nice outfit when playing standing.
the -: I like the shape but not practical

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes really (tele strat sg ibanez flying-V guitar maker ...)

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Very good!

Jackson RR3 Randy Rhoads
See below
very well done beautiful object which admits of no default
top

UTILIZATION

The handle is a fighter
a less hands have really tiny eyes all goes farm -]
it pitches down, but not that much, it remains stable
the floyd floyd is a very good and unless you want to change their tune every 10 minutes all is well, just a touch up every hour, c is never wrong!

the sound is a huge strength in addition to the look. If you buy this skyscraper c is that you like the look so it is c wins. The sound is phenomenalissime: clean sounds that are blind eye to the two mics (very light grain on the mic bridge) and sound distortion ... OOOOOOuch!

SOUNDS

J've redone my entire repertoire of a metallica pinkfloyd ... c is bluffing and it does everything well, without gaps!
Marshall AVT50 and H, n, K triamp
the sound is always balanced, never 'too' or 'not enough' ... HUGE
we choose the sound and sends ca: -] of the fat crystal clear flowing through the percuttant that hurts ... depending on the choice of channel amp. The guitar amp with a living force, but the discipline!

OVERALL OPINION

I have the last year or
Look killer tape al eye floyd stable, the pest of distortion to clean, easy feeling of the handle, finish ... The only drawback is c for transport, the box is a GIANT slight scratches if ...
J have tried the rr24 in the same vein, ltd m, ec, f, strata, epiphone lp, IBZ iceman and 7 strings.
J admits that outperforms all the jackson and worth its weight in peanuts.
guitar top of the basket without hesitation!

Tritt's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Jackson RR3 Randy Rhoads
- Guitar made in Japan
nothing special to add.

- Look
to die for, this guitar is beautiful, as soon as I saw in the window I could not resist. It is crimson red and has no pickguard (and that's good I think it's ugly). The chrome hardware is beautiful, it is even engraved on the inside, not really there's no shit in Jackson are masters in design.

- 2 humbuckers Seymour Duncan "designed"
a real shit these microphones are a disgrace to the brand Seymour Duncan, the sound is dirty and cold, I quickly rushed to exchange them against a kit EMG 81 / 85 which, really pierces your ass. After I may be unlucky because on other criticism of this guitar has some genuine Seymour Duncan which obviously changes everything.

- Floyd Jackson
Then I siterais no names but I saw a review on something like "yeah the floyd is not bad too I m'exite dessu and sometimes it takes the agreement." Frankly, this thing is crap, it is likely the same for all Floyds at least those that price (yes I am perhaps a ignard but I give my honest opinion). No but honestly, have a floyd is great in principle, I am the first to play with but does not agree so it spoils all the fun obtained during its use ... Furthermore, having a guitar made for metal and more able to change tuning without having to open it. That's why I'm as eager to block> 8D, and is the ultimate foot, I can always make the dive bomb but pull back so I do not care what his Disagree

- A single knob for volume
Yes, a single knob AND ITS JUST VERY WELL.

- 22 round boxes screwed.

UTILIZATION

- 22 round boxes screwed
It took me some time to reach me up with the saw teeth but now it's really niquel. The neck is very thin, very fast and very nice, unfortunately the damage access to the latest box is really limited ... because the main bump on the tip of the handle as it is not hollowed out like a RR1 at this time and frankly it's pretty boring but hey, we get used to it ... I wish I had 24 boxes too, but hey, it already looks a bit with 22 I dare imagine with 24 ^. ^ '

SOUNDS

- Style of music
I play metal of all kinds, but mostly i like to do like everybody solos masturbage handle, and with this guitar since I turned the microphones of shit I take my foot completely>: D.

- I play on a TonePort UX2 (external sound card special Line 6) and that's exactly what I wanted, really perfect sound we all seek in vain. Before I played on a line 6 amp and a ubermetal and it was not bad at all either.

- I like the heavy rhythm and effective (hence the micro EMG 81) solos and sweeping clean and well rounded (thus the cut 81/85)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years, I am a little harsh on the criticism but it's really a beautiful instrument.
I love its look and cofortable gaming
Before I had a Peavy pourrave, what a change!
The value for money would be interresting if it was mounted with real Seymour Duncan!
With the experience I would do so this choice without hesitation.

Jackson RR3 Randy Rhoads
- In which country was it made?
This is a guitar made in japan!

- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?
Unfortunately, 22 frets, the pickups are two Seymour Duncan

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Floyd Rose Licensed

- What are the settings (volume, tone, micro switch ...)?
A selector 3 positions and 3 pots (2 volumes and one tone)

UTILIZATION

- The handle is it fun?
Yes, yes, the stick is more enjoyable, but coming from Jackson it does not surprise me!

- Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy?
Yes enough, despite the heel can easily go to the 22nd fret

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
In terms of form ... must love! I find this guitar extremely lightweight ergonomic good enough!

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...
I find I play on a 15W Behringer jpeux and tell you that the sound is niquel, long live the seymour duncan!

SOUNDS

- They are suitable to your style of music?
Yes totally, I play death metal!

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
As mentioned above, a 15W Behringer (for now)

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
Whether bold or its lens, the sound is really niquel, I really do not know what to say about this guitar!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for the past 48 hours, what I like least in this guitar is a sore thigh that gives you when you play too much sitting! ^ ^ And what I like most ... sound quite versatile Duncan, the look, and especially his sleeve! Before I tried to buy a Jackson PS-3 and an LTD EX 400 black diamond (which is also a very good guitar) and I definitely took the RR3! The value for money is not good either be excellent, this guitar shows good jackson! The future will tell me if I made the right choice!
