Hey all

I've got a question and it needs answering.

okay, ive been looking online at different guitars that i want to get and i saw the Jackson RR3 randy rhoads. i thought it was amazing when i saw it. im eventually going to go try one out but i live in a tiny town and the nearest guitar place that is likely to have one is around an hour away, and i dont drive.

anyway, my question is:
are they good guitars? i play metal, some classic rock, some modern rock

I need some help on this one.

I own an RR3 and I can say it's one hell of a guitar; great low action, pickups are nice (with the right amp, obv), holds tuning well, comfortable shape to sit with (sit in the classical position, problem solved), unfinished neck helps for fast playing, great for metal.

The neck is a thin D, what neck are you used to playing on?

im not entirely sure, how do i know what kind of neck ive got?
ive got an old harmony les paul?
is it the curve that the neck is in? caz mines fairly thick

Fairly thick?
Hmm it may take some time getting used to the thin neck, but i'm sure you'll learn to love it.

Just a question, how does the neck compare to say, an Ibanez edge type neck?

I think the Edge is the tremolo, not the neck The Wizard is what you're thinking of, I believe.

I've only played an Ibanez S for about three years now. I like the feel of almost any Jackson neck, although all I've played are Dinky's and the RR's. Both Wizards and the necks on the RRs are thin and fast.

The neck will be MUCH thinner than the Harmony LP's neck.

It's a bit bigger, and I mean a TINY bit bigger; also I think it's a different shape, not sure.

It's amazing, it has great pickups, action, ect.

I play a wide selection of genres on mine, does all of them perfect.
