MGR/Anonymous's review"Jackson RX-10D"

Jackson RX10D Randy Rhoads
i tried it out today at a music ahop near me for about half an hour

everything is great. The shape is nice looking and easy to use and its not top heavy like the gibson/epiphone flying vs. The pickups are smooth because its only 2 humbuckers. my ibanez s370 has 2 humbuckers and a single coil and i dnt need the single coil and i find it so easy to use playing a guitar with just 2 humbuckers. the neck is great and so is the tremelo system.

Nothing. i read a review where someones bad points were all about the floyd rose and the fact it didnt have a tone knob. for the tone knob youve got one on your distortion pedal use that. for the floyd rose? it takes a long time to restring it yes but the advantages are vast. BRILLIANT tremelo arm system. You will barely ever have to tune it after youve restrung it so the strings stay at the same tightness so it takes about 4 months for me to break strings sometimes. It takes a long time to restring and tune but its worth it because it lasts a HELL of alot longer than a normal bridge. And yes its ont great for playing sitting down but then play standing up it keeps your practiose for concerts better.

brilliant as long as youve got a good gig bag or hardcase (i reccomend the hardcase)

Brilliant guitar need the money and im definately getting it

MGR/AJ's review"Jackson RX10D"

Jackson RX10D Randy Rhoads
I purchased my Jackson from Guitar Center, In Tucson Arizona for $380.00

The Translucent Blue finish is very well done and has great depth. The Duncan Designed pickups provide a clean workable range of tone that can be easily tweaked with my Line6 Flextone II XL Amp, However I opted to replace them with a pair of EMG'S. All controls work well and there were no factory defects. The neck is thin and fast and the overall balance is nice.

I had tighten the Input Jack and the Pickup selector nuts once. The factory Action was a bit high for my taste, I was able to get it dialed in with a little effort.

The overall construction was clean, More than you would expect fron an entry level guitar. The Neck is great and well fitted.

For the dollors paid it would be hard to beat this unit. After a few tweaks the Jackson is a blast to play and a looker for sure, I use it for 8 songs in our kick-em in the a-- set.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Jackson RX-10D"

Jackson RX10D Randy Rhoads
I bought this guitar at musicians friend for $489.99 for cherry sunburst and for the solid colors it was only $439.99. I bought it because i am an intermediate kid looking for a guitar that will last and have a tremelo system.



I like the finish it has killer looks the cherry sunburst paint is gorgeous. But thats about it. It was just good looking ohh yeah it also did have a reallly really fast neck.



I hated many things about this guitar but first is the whoel floyd tremelo JT-500 bridge and tremelo. It must take a couple of hours to string and tune it compared to about 15 minutes on my ibanez GAX 70 which was about 300 dollars cheaper. You have to cut the o ring off the end of the string in order to get it in there and if you loosen the string clamp to much on the bridge it falls out and its a bitch to get back in. NExt is the tremelo bar if you accidently tun it one to many times the piece that screws in to the guitar itself and the tremelo bar screws into that piece the little piece comes out wtih the tremelo bar. Next is the tuning keys on like the bottom three strings you have ot turn them 360 degrees about 10 times just to tighten it a little bit. WHen your tuning it and its just a little under perfect you have to turn the keys about 10 times to even get the needle to bounce. NExt is that the neck is set wrong i think. because it says in the manual between the top string and the top of the twelfth fret there should be about 1.5 mm clearance. adn i adjusted it to that and on th e second fret the string was damn near touching so i had to put it up to 2.8 mm and it still just barely buzzes so its pretty hard to push down 3 milimeters to make it sound right. Also there is only one volume know and no tone or other knowbs just a volume and a 3 way pickup selector. and the volume knob isnt even tightened down when ya get it so dont tip it upside down. and if you tighten it after about a week its loose again. another bad thing is dont buy this guitar if you play a lot sittn down it just slides down your leg bacasue of the v shape. ONe more thing thats wrong about it is that if you bend back with the tremelo bar the strings will fall out after about 5 times.



who ever thought this up its now worth the money my ibanez would kick its ass and so would my epiphone. its not great .



its not worth the money. BAD GUITAR.

killerkgprime's review"It's OK..."

Jackson RX10D Randy Rhoads
This particular model of the Jackson Rhoads is the most inexpensive one that Jackson offers. It's made in Indonesia, and it has a basswood body with a bolt on maple neck and rosewood board, with the signature shark-fin inlays that Jackson popularized. There is one volume and tone control, and it features 2 high output Duncan Designed humbuckers. It has a compound radius board that make lead playing much easier in the upper register.

UTILIZATION

The neck is fast and thin, and the rhoads has great upper access to the high frets. The shape is a bit awkward, and the bevels, lack of comfort cuts and asymmetric wings can make this an uncomfortable guitar to play.

The licensed floyd is pretty unstable. Sometimes it'll hold tune jsut fine, but more often than not, it's go out of tune with big bends or divebombs.

This guitar is super light because of the scaled down basswood body, really nice if you're gigging and doing a long set.

The compound radius board gos from 12" to 16", and it's really nice for playing in the upper registers, and the flatter board allows for bigger bends, adn overall more space for your fingers to move around on.





SOUNDS

The bridge pickup is aggressive and crunchy, but not dynamic or touch sensitive, neither is the neck pickup, but it does a better job of cleaning up. The tones are outwardly good, but they lack a depth and nuance. This guitar is pretty well suited to scooped tones, or high gain tones, where the amp takes over, because this guitar is pretty fun to play, and very fast.

OVERALL OPINION

I like the aesthetics of the rhoads shape, but I don't like the feel of it. Your mileage may vary.The lower horn bumps into my leg alot. The floyd not staying in tune is a big no no for me, and while the pickups are not the best, they can get it done if you're playing all out metal. There are much better options for a a metal guitar at this price point. Things that were not available at the time I bought this guitar.
