I've pretty much decided on having one of these Jackson RR's. Only thing i'm gonna check is wether i suit one of them. Me being a pretty big guy and that being a smallish guitar (looks like it anyhoo).

But which shall/can i get? Cost is no issue, but i dont wanna pay more than a grand.

I want an OFR, 24 jumbo frets, and EMG's. I dont like the one that only has one pickup, so please dont suggest it

If i cant get one with EMG's, i need it cheap enough to buy EMGs seperate.

Suggestions and links/pics guys?

Thanks a lot.

I do not think there is a Rhodes that fits those specs. There's the RR24, and the RR5FR.

They're also big guitars.

Also, would you be willing to buy an OFR seperate?

I would buy one seperate yes

But with a £1000 budget would i get an RR, and an OFR and two EMGs?
Including fitting/technician costs?

Its fine by me if its affordable.

copied the body shape, only 189 more than what you wanted to spend

EDIT: i seriously doubt you can get a RR shape with all those exact specs cheaper than that btw.

Well, if you're looking for a V guitar and not just the Randy Rhoads exclusively, an LTD V-500 with case should be about $200 under your budget, and a beautiful dean VMNT with active Seymour Duncans (They sound better than EMGs in my opinion) is exactly your budget (hard case is included). Unfortunately, the jackson that fits your specs, the RR24 is about $250 over your budget (Jacksons are a really bad value-there, I said it!).


They are still awesome though

There's two two that come to mind. Except they both have cons.


This is about... $1500... Which would be about 3000 pounds.


This is significantly cheaper, but it also has a LFR, and you may hate the inlays.

Other than that, you can either sacrifice the two extra frets, and get the RR5FR, and put EMGs in, or sacrifice the neck pup, and get the RR24.

Right, thanks a lot for this info guys.

That ESP SV that "metallicafan" posted looks pretty much exactly what i want (minus the more killer-looking Jackson headstock). Just need to see all other options and i may end up getting that one...


EDIT;
To Colgate-Total;
$1500 is around £800.

One pound = approx. 2 dollars

Thanks for the pics! Thats the ESP SV right? Looks ****ing killer.

For 1000 quid, this is what you should do:
Browse ebay and other second hand sites, and look out for an RR1. Later swap out the pickups if you still want to.

What are you smoking man? $1500 is about £700. Remember, the pound is amazing compared to your dollars.

you lucky bastard, haha.
You live outside North America and can get your hands on those ESPs.
And from all that I've heard/read, I'd say the ESP is the way to go.

Whats the second guitar here? I know the top one is the ESP SV standard, but who makes the bottom one? I can't quite make out the name on the headstock.

Hey guys, the jackson RR5FR looks quite good to me, but it doesnt say "original" floyd rose, it says floyd rose and then a product number. Are they the same thing? I only want the best tbh.

I own one and yes it is an OFR, the only difference with it being made in Korea instead of Germany to keep production costs down. The same Floyds are used on Schecter's too if I may add. All in all, its the exact same tremolo as the Schaller made one without "Made in Germany" stamped on the bottom of it.

Now that we're talking about RR v's does anyone actually own a replica of his polka dot v? Everyone talks about owning jacksons but i dont think ive ever seen/heard of anyone that doesnt have a ****load of cash that owns one of these polka dot ones, because that guitar is very badass looking.

You know what? Now that you mention it I did see a polka dot finished RX10D or RR3 a while back, I don't remember where though.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I think Perry Ormsby over in GB&C made like 15 of them and sold them, so at least 15 people own a replica.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I wish the ESP made an LTD version of the SV-NT / SV-FR

It looks so badass, but its waaaaaay over my budget.
