Rhoads Goes Pro With This Shred-Ready Metal Machine

Continuing Jackson's legacy of inspiring guitar shredders across the world, the high-tech Rhoads RR3 has landed. The latest evolution of a classic instrument designed for technical guitar playing, the Rhoads RR3 melds versatile tone with classic rock style and innovative technology for a purebred machine that proudly exhibits Jackson's deep-running bloodline.

Chosen specifically for their complementary sound, a pair of modern Seymour Duncan(R) pickups drives this guitar's versatile sound--a crisp JB(TM) TB4 humbucking bridge pickup and warm '59(TM) SH1N humbucking neck pickup combine for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for pristine cleans and snarling distortion. The speedy neck profile is engineered for blazing guitar work, removing any obstacles to fleet-fingered playing and granting easier access to the upper frets. The ultra-fast one-piece maple neck bears a pair of graphite rods for reinforcement against the assaults of temperature and humidity, remaining true for unbeatable performance.

The 12"-16" compound radius fingerboard is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing--more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out. The sensitive Floyd Rose(R) FRT-O3000 recessed double-locking tremolo adds expressive vibrato to notes and chords with the tap of a finger while working in concert with the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut for rock-solid tuning performance and precise intonation.

Instantly recognizable from the front row or the nosebleed seats, Jackson's hallmark styles have spawned many imitators, but none comes close to the original metal machines we create. From the gold hardware to the unique inlays, pointed 6-In-Line headstock and unique body designs, stylishly cool aesthetics has been one of our calling cards for decades. Forged in the pit and engineered for fiery playing, the Pro Rhoads RR3 is the ideal instrument for players who aren't afraid to turn up and cut loose on their guitars.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fantastic guitar after sorting out issues"
Sound: After repairing the toggle switch to have both pickups fully functional the sound of the guitar was great Feature: Love playing with the whammy bar although do not until the issues with the creaking and excess spring noise is sorted out but am still excited to use it. The EMG active pickups are great although the toggle switch needed replacing straight out of the box to engage the neck pickup Ease of Use: This is my second Rhoads style V guitar but my last one was years ago and it took me a little while to get comfortable playing with it sitting down. A good foot stool helps a lot. Now that I'm used to it again I love it. It puts the guitar at a great almost classical style angle and makes aggressive playing incredibly easy. The accessibility of Tue higher frets is also great because of the body shape Quality: It's a stunning guitar and seems like will withstand the test of time but again when it comes quality to many issues needed to be resolved for a brand new instrument Value: Yes Manufacturer Support: I cannot say because I did not use the manufacturer or haven't yet. I did not want to ship the guitar back out The Wow Factor: Absolutely. I love the Rhoads style V's and my other main guitar is a gorgeous ebony USA made Gibson SG that in my opinion plays better than the RRMG pro but I still prefer to play the RRMG Overall: I bought this guitar through Zzounds on their payment plan which was fantastic. It arrived on time but straight out of the box the neck pickup was not functional what so ever although the problem was actually the three way toggle switch which had to be entirely replaced which I did so through a local guitar shop because I did not want to have to ship the guitar back to the manufacturer. My next issue was with the Floyd Rose. When I dive or pull it back the springs make a horrible creaking sound which reverbarates through the body and pickups into the amp. This is my first Floyd Rose equipped guitar but from talking to guitar techs and other musicians this should not be happening and I have to sort that issue out so I have not been playing with the whammy bar on. Other than being exceptionally disappointed with these issues consoderering the guitar was brand new I am extremely happy with its playability, aesthetics and sound. It is a great guitar and I cannot wait to have the Floyd Rose problem solved so I can use the whammy bar. I would recommend this guitar to others at the drop of a hat but am not happy with Jackson for the state I received it in and would not blame these problems on Zzounds. A lot of the star raitings will not be phenomenal do to the issues I had with the instrument right out of the box although I do love it and plan on keeping it indefinitely.
