I was wondering if they were any custom shops from other brands or lesser known ones that would make a custom rhoads guitar seeing as how an actual Jackson one seems to be ridiculously priced.

Find a luthier to build you one?

Warmoth for one.
You can also get a kit from Guitarfetish for under $200 I think.

Warmoth gets my vote (the neck isn't from them, otherwise that fingerboard would be ebony).


hey is that a custom wireless unit on top of your amp?

I highly doubt you will ever find a custom built RR V for cheaper than you can buy a jackson. The Jckason JS32T RR is $300 and it is a RR V, just in a budget form.

I think he means from the Jackson Custom Shop.
Find a (local) builder and ask for information.

Most cost effective way is to build one yourself, or have a local luthier make you one.

I find WARMOTH to be pretty expensive, $400+ for just a body I wanted, thats JUST the wood too. That's not even anything else on it. I'd say the jackson custom shop is the best bet still, may seem like a lot, but 4ish grand for a 100% custom guitar, not to mention insane quality, is a fairly good deal, fill your boots if you go custom, I wouldn't bother if you just want one that's only like, one small little thing off from the standard production models.

Carvin has a Rhoads-ish V, but reversed:

You could theoretically get this made as a lefty and then flip everything around, sort of reverse Hendrix it, but Warmoth or a local luthier would probably be your best bet

my vote is for Ran, fairly inexpensive, 100% custom guitars. I haven't heard anything negative about them.

Carvin . Can't go wrong. Here's my beauty:

Custom guitars, vintage amps, boutique pedals. Blah, blah, blah.

That carvin is awesome aside from it being a reverse rhoads. If they didn't do that id get a carvin in a heartbeat. Also i looked at ran before, but i was wondering if anyone had a general idea of how much one would cost.

i think it's usually about $2000 shipped if you don't go too nuts with inlays and shit

I guess if you don't like the look that can't be helped, but it is 1000X more comfortable than a standard Rhoads. It's not just weird, it has a very functional aspect to it.
