I think Rhoads style bodies are the most sexy guitars on earth and I want one, bad!

I've set my sights on this one:

http://www.jacksonguitars.com/products/products.php?group=Left&page=1&product=2803161803

Now the problem is, I can't seem to find a price or a place that sells them lefthanded :s

I NEED that guitar the Eerie Dess Swirl finish is so sexy!

EDIT: Ok, I've found a dealer relatively close to me and I contacted them. Apparently they need to custom order it and it's gonna cost me €3235.
Is this guitar worth that price?

I'm sorry man, I can't think of any stores that sell the rhoads style v lefthanded. You could always buy the righthand and put a left bridge and nut on it. But that probably doesn't spark your interests, and that would probably be too big a problem if it were to have a floyd rose. (didn't look, slow dial-up connection).
Currently trying to find a band that can use me. ¿Y Tu?

perhaps you could custom order one directly from jackson?

I did. I'm from belgium, the closest I can find are dealers from Germany :s

EDIT: Ok, I clearly didn't look good enough, I found some dealers in Belgium. Gonna contact them now

Ok, I've done some research and it would cost me 3235 euros for the RR1T-LH. Does UG think this price is worth it for this guitar?

It apparently needs to be custom built when ordered.

http://www.thomann.de/ie/jackson_rr1_sw_lh.htm Check that out! I'm not too sure on shipping though!


Thanks, but that guitar has a floyd rose bridge, I switch tunings often and it's a pain in the ass to do that with a floyd rose, so I'd rather have a fixed bridge. + I really want that eerie dess swirl finish, it's teh sexy!

So, €3235, is this guitar worth the price?

Your thoughts on the matter please

i myself would say no,

but if you really want the axe save up and hope that it will statisfy all your needs

another thing to do: buy a right handed and flip it the other way around i believe some guy did that with a stratocaster so shouldn't be to hard with a flying V

that is a possibility, but the knobs will be in the way. And I would prefer a proper left guitar :p

A rhoads will be upside down too >.>.

Anyway, I believe Carvin makes nice rhoads shaped guitars.

The RR1T pretty much is everything I want

For that money you can easily pay a good customshop or luthier to do a custom made guitar for you.

If you're dead-set on buying that guitar, that's fine. If you haven never touched that guitar before I highly disencourage you to go through and down make the payment for it. Never, never EVER pay that much money for something you've never tried personally. Chances are that it will not turn out to be what you expected and you will lose a lots of money resell it.

how can I try something out when it will only be made if I pay for it?
I can't go asking them to make the guitar for me, then after half a year try it out and realise I don't like it and not buy it :s
