They are very comfortable to play standing. They are normally fairly light and they don't have any points jabbing into your ribs.

Like you said they suck when sitting down, but just like any guitar while standing.
Your opinion is just that, YOUR opinion. It doesn't make you right. It doesn't make you better. It doesn't make you god. Everyone has their own view and that view is neither right or wrong.

Ignorance destroys music.

i have a KKV, as said its not as good sitting and playing, i have to put the V between my legs and tilt it at an upward angle, sort of like how i play classical guitar :/

but if you plan to play standing its quite comfortable, and V's are usually light on weight so it doesnt kill you when you play gigs and such ^^

You get used to it. Just get a good leather strap.

And get an RR5FR, much better than the RR24.

Ok fair enough.

And once you get into the Pro Jackson Series you don't need to worry. I've heard nothing but good things. Even my X series is way better than any
Ibanez I've played in that price range.

only thing ive noticed is that jackson strings are a little further apart than normal...which is good and bad...my schecter strings are close, my esp is a little further apart and the jackson will be even further...wondering how this will work out

Yeah, All the Jacksons I've played absolutely blow away any Ibanez in the same price range. And I agree about the Pro Series. I've played a bunch of pro series and I've never really found anything wrong with them. I used to own a KE3 and an RR5 and they were absolutely amazing.

The KE3 didn't fit my body properly when I played standing up and I had the RR5 on approval to see if I liked it or not, but I ordered an RR5FR instead since I prefer a trem.

O man i love V's. Once u get use to sitting down with them it doesnt bother ya at all. And they give sooo much more better access to the higher frets. The only thing i would have to say about the Jackson Rhoads is that they are Top heavy as in the on the headstock side it is heavier than the actual body so it wants to fall down whenever u let go off it
#23
V's are great. they're not too hard to play sitting, just hold it with your right leg in between the wings and you're good to go.

the Alexi-600 isn't quite like an RR if that's what you're wanting. plus it has a passive EMG (or Duncan Blackout in the new ones) as opposed to the EMG 81 in the RR24. the Hellraiser V looks ugly i think. the bottom wing is longer than the top wing, wtf?

THANKYOU.

And I'm still tossing the RR24 around, please be sure to review it also I vote white, because that's the color I'd get it in

Doesn't matter. You're going to end up with a super sexy guitar anyway... Just go with what seems good to you.

The Demmelition is awesome. The RR24 looks good in either white/black bevels and black/red bevels to me. Compared to the Alexi-600 and Hellraiser, I'd have to go with the Jackson. I don't fancy ESP very much and the Hellraiser V looks odd to me. Rhoads is the way to go.

and it will take the place of my hellraiser on my wall

wow that's a bit of a stupid idea to get rid of a guitar. the v shaped guitars are the ****, but at times i do want to play in the regular way so i either go to my piece of **** yamaha or my dean ml.
#37
I'd rather have the Hellraiser than the RR24.

Ok, but it's his guitar and not yours, so why would he care?


I think what he meant was that you shouldn't just get rid of a guitar because you're getting a new one. You may get rid of it thinking your new one will take its place when in fact your old one may play just as well or better as your new one.

True, but if there's something you really don't like about the guitar (more than cosmetics) then why keep it? Sell it to fund the new gear. If we never got rid of any guitars we'd all end up with like tons eventually... Which would be pointless, because the way I see it once you get past probably 5 guitars unless you're a pro you're NOT going to play all of them (well you may... But I doubt it) they're going to start becoming wallflowers, sitting on stands or hanging there just collecting dust.

Out with the old and in with the new right?
