+1 Not only is that a pretty sweet looking guitar, it has some vintage character to it. If it play/sounds sweet, get it!

Make sure you haggle him on the price, too!

Pretty sure my friend has that exact guitar, and i'll tell you: it's absolute garbage. That's just my opinion, but I still suggest you try it out considering my taste in guitars are probably much different from yours and you may in fact like it.

it might be the new Js30RR,looks almost exactly the same...that indeed is absolute garbage..

this on the other hand,I think is a good guitar judging by the specs

The shop owner was right, the models with Grover Jackson on the headstock were built in Japan for the Japanese market. They still get unique models that the rest of the world don't. Up until recently they were branded as Jackson Stars, and I think the legal thing which stopped them simply branding them as Jackson like everywhere else has ended, and so the Japan only models will just be branded Jackson from now on.

Here's what you do: you go try it out, play it standing up, and play it sitting down. It's a pain to play it when sitting, but that's obviously your preference. Try it out enough to see if the guitar is comfortable and the neck suits you. If you honestly think the guitar has a good feel (which I think otherwise), then see if you like the sound of it. The sound is probably one of the most important factors, and I honestly didn't like the sound of my friends at all (but I think it was a different model either way).

But in all honesty it's up to you. If you like it and it's in your budget then go ahead and buy it, I can't stop you.

Thank you so much 4 your advice.To get a jackson with a good price is quite hard here.My budget is little only,furthermore guitars sold in malaysia are waaayys expensive.I think the tax is so high.For example,whole new rr3 costs usd1230 with hardcase.It is expensive right?
