Im looking at getting a new guitar and I noticed the Jackson RR3, heres the link. I was woundering if anyone knows how good the guitar is, I really want a randy rhoads body possibley some other v , with a locking trem, a neck thru or set neck would be nice but those are out of my price range, if it helps I play mostly thrash metal.

I would personally save up for the more expensive one, but then maybe thats because I think Randy is a God!

Personally I am not a fan of them V shapes you can't hold them normally to practice. Sure they look the bomb but just so annoying to hold!

I know that but personally I find it a bit awkward and begs your wrist to get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

my friend has one with emg's in it and he plays mostly metal/rock/classic rock. they have a really nice sound and a pretty quick neck. i have played a few. i personally am not a fan of fr trems so... but neck thru is way sweet. i dunno if you wanna save up, it would probly be wortht the wait. so overall... i think it is a very good guitar, playing sitting down you get used to and for thrash metal i think youll like the sound, but probly if you want more aggressive and xtreme crunch, you might wanna change the pu's to emgs.hope that helped

No no I wasn't saying there was anything wrong with that way, of course there isn't, no way, but to me it's horrible.

its not bad the problem i have with it is the trem is that of a half decent one but you can always swap it straight for an OFR so yeh thats that done. also what amp do you use?

You're joking right?

It's like comparing sex to sticking your penis in a blender.

what do you mean other than the neck thru, and when the floyd goes ill just get an official one, and plus i will have to save for like 2 and a half years for the rr1.
