I really liked the Jackson RR3 but it had a floyd rose on it, and I read somewhere that some models have a string through. Does anyone know where I can find one? I had a bridge with a locking tremolo but it got too cumbersome.
#2
RR5 has a tune-o-matic bridge, as does the JS30 RR. Get a trem blocker?
ohai little sig.
#3
What's a trem blocker? I saw the RR5 but its around 1200 and that's a little too much for me but i'll check out the JS30.
#4
A trem blocker is usually a piece of wood shoved in the trem cavity so the trem can't move about.

Can someone recommend a guitar that has a flying v shape like the rr3 that doesn't have a locking tremolo?
#6
RR3 Custom. Google it up. However, it doesn't have real Duncans, like the RR3 with FR, and the hardware is probably a little worse.

Huh? What model is this? I know there was a limited run RR3 that was identical to the RR5 save for a bolt on neck. May be hard to find now though.

wow i`ve seen more Jackson RR`s V with string through body`s then with floyds.. thinking about it i`ve never seen a RR with a floyd in person only in pic`s, at the store near me they have a Jackson RR something i don`t know which one but it`s white with gold hardware and it`s a string through, i think it`s over $1000, i never looked that closely at it though, maybe i will next time i`m in there

No, there was a direct RR5 copy that was an RR3. I think the Duncan Designed is a typo, as they all had real Duncans save the X series BGF King V.

Ahh okay. You said it was a limited run? Way to ruin my dream of owning a mid-priced string through RR...

They only sold for a hair above the norm. $700 for the RR3s IIRC. Not likely to go up in value much, but you'll have one of only a hundred.

EDIT: AFAIK, Kirk's a San Dimas Rhoads. He tunes it to D Standard for Sad But True and a few others. Jaymz also used to have a White King V and they both used Soloists from time to time.
