The Rhoads.

Has a nice alder body, some Seymour Duncans for added versatility, and an OFR. The neck isn't too thin either, so that's a plus for me. Plus it looks better.

RR5 for better pups and OFR.

Anything lower than RR5 in the Jackson line of guitars is shit.
Lost interest.

I actually prefer the SL3. I think they're both nice guitars, but I find the SL3 to be more comfortable sitting down and standing up, and the higher fret access seams easier to me as well. It's really something you'll need to try out for yourself. Everybody's different.
#7
Have you ever played a RR shaped guitar?
You may find them to be something you like, but I still don't think that they're comfortable to me, but that's just my opinion. Is your mind set on these two guitars, or are you open to other suggestions as well? If so, then state your price range.
I'm pretty sure the neck joint is different between the two, and the one on the RR is the reason I find the higher fret access to be a little more difficult then the SL3.

im open to any guitar in the price range so if u know some please let me know
#9
Well, is there anything you dislike on your guitars?
Like, do you prefer ebony, maple of rosewood fretboards?
Certain neck or body woods you dislike?
Bolt-on neck thru ect. preferance?
#10
well fretboards dont really matter to me. i like mahogony and alder. and deff neck thru
#11
Well, the wood from the fretboard makes a difference as well. What scale would you prefer?

lol, funniest post ever. Have you ever seen an SL3? Do you even know what guitar we're talking about?
Because, the SL3 has an alder body, the same SD in the bridge, and 2 SC SD's and an OFR... And since its a Jackson, the necks wont be so different either.

I'd say, go for the SL3. Neckthru > bolt on imo. especially for the upper fret access.

The RR5 is also neck through.


Furthermore both are maple neckthrough i.e the wing woods (what y'all call the 'body') doesn't matter nearly as much as the neck's. What you'll hear is mostly maple and both axes have rosewood boards.

^^oh my bad, i thought the RR5 was bolt on. So than its all about the shape. Choose the one you prefer.

Look, these are the only 3 differences:
- Shape
- 24 frets (SL3) vs 22 frets (RR5)
- HSS seymour duncans vs HH seymour duncans

So whatever you prefer, choose that axe. For ALL THE REST they are exactly the same.
