Jackson welcomes a new guitar in 2008 to its venerable Rhoads line, the RR24M Rhoads. The Spartan-looking model has an alder body and rock maple neck-through-body, with a compound-radius maple fingerboard, body bevel, matching logo, 24 jumbo frets, EMG® 81 pickup, a Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 double-locking two-point tremolo and black hardware.


THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAAAAA!!


So this post isn't spam,

The pickguard on the RR5 is horrendous. I like the other one mentioned though.



Agreed.

If I bought one, I'd remove the pickguard.

that kinda exposes the electronics

the rr5fr just looks like an rr3 with bevels, but theyre making progress, all they need to do now is make a 24 fretted rr with 2 pickups.

The RR5FR is perfect 22 frets, 2 Seymour Duncan pickups and an original Floyd rose. But where is it made, because if its made in USA then doesn't this means that it is basically an RR1?

So the only difference between the RR5FR and the RR3 is the original Floyd Rose as opposed to the Jackson one. Right?

Thats what some people THINK.
There's a big quality difference though (regarding woods and craftmanship). For example the neck. The RR1 has a neckthru quartersawn maple neck, the RR5FR has a neckthru rock maple with scarf joint headstock. And an RR1 has an ebony fretboard.

RR24M Would be perfect, if it had a neck pickup


Yeah, I agree about that.
I can't believe they charge so much for a Guitar with just ONE pickup.

Quote by fixationdarknes
With the RR24M's coming out, does this mean the current RR24 models will have lowered prices? Anyone know?


Man, I hope so
#23
No, the price will remain. Much like what happened with the dk2 when the dk2m came out. They didn't lower it because it was a new model, not a replacement.

It's about time they updated their site. Love the maple. It'd be nice to see some other colors besides black and white though.
#26
Me. Want. RR5FR. In. Ivory. Now.

Yummy. Now, the regular RR5 is ugly.... (The gold hardware looks CHEAP!) but that thing... me want.
Life is like an Empty Box, there could be something exciting in it at first look, but upon further review, well, it's empty.

#27
Astounding!

I had played one of the older models about a month ago and I could not believe what an amazing piece of work it was.
#28
if they had that gold rr5 with a gold fr i would be all over it. i wish the made a 24 fret 2 pickup rhoads!!
Sigs are too hard to think up
#29
Ahh major GAS for the RR5FR.. I played the RR5 again today it's such a great guitar was hard not to take it home with me today.. But man its got an OFR!! Can't wait till they stock it here

EDIT: I wish Jackson would actually update their website totally but..

Oh, wow.... Another Floyd equipped Jackson... Would be nice if there was more after the entry levels without Floyds, to be honest - Quick flick through the site and I found 3, not counting the Artist models

The RR5FR is made in Japan.

It does not come with an "Original Floyd Rose". Rather it includes an FRT-O2000 (look closely at the spec sheet, on the Jackson website).

I wanted to know what the hell is an FRT-O2000, so I called Floyd Rose, Inc.

They said: The FRT-O2000 is actually a very good trem, built to the same specs as the Original. It is, however built in Korea as opposed to Germany, thus saving us (the company) a few bucks.

If you look closely Originals will say "Original" on them. The FRT-O2000's simply say "Floyd Rose". If any of you are using Schecters with "Originals" these are actually the FRT-O2000's. I have one, on a C-1 Hellraiser FR, and I think that it is, in truth, a pretty darn good trem. Very much like an original, only less expensive.

Meh, I like the ordinary RR24 more.
EDIT: Goddamn I want a RR24 now speaking of it...
