tjon901's review"An evolution of Randys original design"

Jackson USA RR1 Randy Rhoads
When Randy died he was arguably the most popular guitarist in the world. Shortly before he died the guys at Jackson offered to make him a custom V to Randys specifications. The original RR was slightly different but the basic design is the same. It is an offset V with the larger horn shorter than the lower horn. This design helps with the guitars balance. The guitar has a neck through body with a maple neck. The neck has a 22 fret ebony fretboard with Jacksons signature shark fin inlays. The neck and headstock are fully bound. It has a Floyd Rose double locking tremolo which is something the original didnt have. It has two Seymour Duncan humbuckers. It has an SH2 in the neck and a TB4 in the bridge with one volume and two tone knobs with a 3 way switch.

UTILIZATION

The frets arent as easy to reach on this guitar as on other Jacksons because the shape of the V. 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. 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.

SOUNDS

With the Seymour Duncan pickups the guitar has a huge versatile sound. The alder body with the maple neck give you the classic shred guitar tone. Not many companies put after market pickups in their guitars but Jackson does. Jackson knows if you are paying more than 1000 dollars for a guitar you should not have to change the pickups right after you get it.

OVERALL OPINION

Randy Rhodes was one of the most influential guitar players of the last half century. This model of Jackson guitar is a lasting tribute to his legacy. With Jacksons falling out of favor in use among the guitar players of popular music you do not see guitars like these being played as often as you would a few years ago. This is sad because its a perfectly fine and versatile guitar. When you play a Jackson RR you are playing and keeping a part of metal history alive.

Hatsubai's review"Classic RR guitar"

Jackson USA RR1 Randy Rhoads
The Jackson RR V was a guitar originally made for the famous Randy Rhoads. It has since evolved to become one of the most iconic guitars in the metal industry, especially in thrash metal. The guitar features an alder body, maple neck with ebony fretboard and shark fin inlays, 22 jumbo frets, and original floyd rose, one volume knob, two tone knobs, HH configuration and a 3 way switch.

UTILIZATION

I'm not normally a fan of V guitars due to ergonomics, but the RR isn't quite as bad as some other Vs. The shorter lower horn allows it to sit in your lap a bit easier, but I still find myself having to sit in classical style and support the neck. The coolest feature about this guitar is the compound radius neck. At the lower register, the guitar has a smaller radius. This allows you to chord very easily without straining your wrist. At the higher frets, the radius is flatter. This allows you to do extreme bends without fretting out. The fretwork on this guitar is also very nice.

SOUNDS

The RR1 is a very versatile guitar thanks in part to its pickup selection and tone knobs. The JB in the bridge is probably one of the most well known and well rounded pickups in the guitar industry. It has leant itself to nearly every style from jazz to death metal. The Jazz in the neck is actually deceiving as it can work for nearly any style you can think of as well. It's a little brighter and clearer than the '59, so fast shred lines come out cleaner. The additional tone pots also allow you to shape the tone a lot more than other models.

OVERALL OPINION

The RR1 is probably my favorite V out of the entire Jackson line. Part of that is because I'm a big fan of Randy Rhoads, but the other part is because it's a well put together and sleek guitar. The fretwork is nice, the pickups are great, the guitar sounds wonderful and it does metal tones in spades. Considering their price, you might want to look for one on the used market instead of buying new.

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

Jackson USA RR1 Randy Rhoads
I bought this guitar a guy an orchestra in my region who sold all his gear. It is white with a Floyd Rose vibrato brand, two microphones and is double the 1985 so I know if we can call RR1 but in any case looks like ay. On the head there described "made in United States" so I think she does makes the United States. It is very well finished and super enjoyable.

UTILIZATION

Everything is good on this guitar sound, the neck, the look ... I just have a little trouble sitting to play with but it must not be made for a. Besides, I have a poster of Metallica Kirk Hammet which has almost the same and plays upright.
The sounds are all sat monstrous crunch of the extreme sat and clean sounds are clean but trs trs are not Fender (dual microphones!)

SOUNDS

I like the mtal me and it's perfect. I have a Mesa, two Marshalls and a few other lesser-known lights amps (Laney, Ampeg ...) and it is with everyone. This is one of my guitars prfres.

OVERALL OPINION

I have this from scratch this t o I had a fit of money and I'm really happy. I paid 500 euros because his former Owner 'was an urgent need to sell and I because the merchant flighjt silent box a little battered. I think I made a deal.

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

Jackson USA RR1 Randy Rhoads
MODEL is a United States ...
22 frets, two Seymour Duncan, Floyd Rose original rglage rglages volume 2 tone, neck-through, to know everything going on the site of jackson ..
Anyway, everything is final and perfect!

UTILIZATION

The handle is also enjoyable as my pillow, it is varnished derrire making it soft key is bne, what do you expect??
Access in acute ais is perhaps a little less than a more traditional guitar shaped like YWAM, but personally, I sometimes fret of the camper and I do not remember to have t once bothered!
It is lgre, perfect to play standing (position involves sitting and standing than indented, allowing a transition without even noticing: the position of "classic" with a peak of each cot right leg). Ergonomics "metal" with these peaks is not at all teachers, I got used the position of game 1 hour, and found it prfrable From that moment, it is less turned to look its handle, it is before our eyes! (no back pain!)

SOUNDS

This scraper is suitable for all styles in terms of sound (at least in terms of look, of course =)! )
From the time I configured a sound that I like on my chain of amplification, the grate SETTING THE (micro selector, Tone volume), the possibilities open to me even more!

OVERALL OPINION

It has been almost two years since I use it, have APRS rcupr ocaz of France on ebay (risky!
It is gnialement comfortable, all spices are high-end, the key to vibrato, is the day and night with almost everything that I could now test level comfort, and best metal sound level (I did not test much in the other style, I admit that strat will certainly fits for some!)
SHE IS BEAUTIFUL! I MODEL LTG is to say with the clear paint through the pickups and the vibrato, I never t for designs on guitars, for fear of tiring myself but the custom shop Jackson has done things perfectly, it is perfectly integrated in the scrapers, I do not even notice it more, and is totally beautiful)
