Hey there guys. Im looking to get a Jackson RR3, but dont really know how good everything is. I tryed the 05' verisons and liked it. The playability was great, and looks really cool. I hated the trem though, and the pick-ups could have been better. I was originally going to get a LTD DV8-R but changed my mind. I really want something with a good tremolo and some killer looks. Is the RR3 06' better than the 05? and if so, how? Also, if you know any other guitars on www.musiciansfriend.com for around $800 let me know, BUT it MUST have a GOOD trem! I have a Epiphone Les Paul Custom Ltd.Edition Midnight, and looking for something around the same quality, or even better.

I got an RR3 in march and i really like it. After adjusting it a bit my trem and action were both fine. The pickups aren't that bad but if i got more serious i'd probably replace them .
At first i didn't really like it but the guitar warmed to me
Overall, good guitar

That looks nice, good pups too. But how is the trem? Anyone know?



When it says LICENSED, that usually means it's bound to suck, and those types of trems are either a hit or a miss.

Nothing beats trying it yourself though.

Totally untrue about the Licensed part. The Ibanez Edge Pro is a Licensed Floyd Rose, but is as good or even better than the Floyd Rose. If your price range is about $800, then I would recommend the Schecter Hellraiser C1 FR since it is supposedly one of their best guitars.

Get it, trust me I have one. Trem is great it's a bit crappy and unsmooth with 9-42s on it but I put some 9-50s on that sucker to increase tension so the springs are tigher and the trem's comparable to a freaking ZR trem.

Get the new '06 RR3. They updated from those Duncan Designed pickups to real Seymour Duncan pickups (JB in bridge & Jazz in neck, their best combo!) Of course it's a little more expensive, but it's better than the old RR3.

I was talking about axes with a licensed FR in the price range of the MH-50.

jackson's licensed FR trems are pretty good i think, but trems on cheap guitars usually suck and jackson don't have very many cheap guitars.

Their entire JS line is junk. Seriously. Starting from the DXMG, that's when Jackson is known for their name.

I love my '05 RR3. The trem is good I didn't tune it for 2 weeks and I just checked it and it was just barely flat. The pickups were too bassy for me so I've ordered a Bill Lawrence set for it, I can't wait until the come it. It is seriously the nicest guitar I've played for its price. I also have a Dinky and a lot of people love it(sexual innuendo). I've tried a KE3 too or if you want a V the King V is good.
