I'm looking at this Jackson that I'm thinking about buying off a guy. It's a Jackson Randy Rhoads model guitar. I know that they've made several different types of Jackson RR guitars before and depending on the model, the value of the guitar is different. The guy doesn't know what the actual model of the guitar is, for example a RR3 or RR1, but he gave me the serial number. I was wondering if I could have a hand with pinpointing what model this guitar is, whether the serial number will help or if there's some other distinguishing characteristic about the guitar that'll let me know.

I'm pretty sure if you put up some pics of it, we could figure out what model it is. Closeup of pickups, neckjoint, binding, bridge...etc.

Also, if it has a "Made in Japan" sticker, or from somewhere else. Jackson serial numbers really don't help unless they're pretty old.

I have 2010 RR3 PRO it is MIJ and has real Duncan's JB/59 not Duncan Designed pickups, if that is a RR3 PRO series it should have real Duncans again JB/59 set looks like the pickups might have been swapped as those are Duncan Designed Invaders.

FWIW I paid $499 used for mine it was in near mint condition and had the factory Jackson hard case included.

Looks like a mid 2000s 3 or X series.

I have a KE3 from 2004 or so and it came with the same Jackson Trem and the same Duncan Designed Detonator pickups. Looks like their X series some years had the same hardware/pickups like in the 2006 catalog.
