Had borrowed my cousins for over a month and taught myself to play a little so I finally splurged and bought a Jackson RR3 Rhoads Pro Series Electric Guitar. Price at $650 on the website and othersites like Musicians friend, zzsounds, etc... Well, The sale guy reccommended it and I played it and love the sound more than the other guitars I played, which ranged from Les Pauls in the $500-600 range, schecter c-1's and damiens, a $850 jaguar, an ephiphone sg, which i though was by far the worst, and a few others. Well, I loved it and its FLoyd Rose so I decided to buy it. Best thing was, it was on sale for $500. Must have been a store special, because it wasn't even listed at that on the store cpu when he wrung me out.

Good deal? Good guitar? Personally I was just playing the Star Spangled Banner on it Jimi Hendrix style and the sound is to die for....

Great guitar, as long as you know how to set up a FR you'll be fine.
I'm guessing you do since you bought one for your first guitar.
Nice purchase. Proud owner of an RR5 myself.
Rock on!

To me, Jonas Brothers sound identical to Dragonforce. So I'm not sure what you've just proved.

Well first off your amazingly lucky to have a RR3 for your first guitar. I know most of us are stuck buying shitty starter packs and knockoff's. But yeah I used to be a fan of the RR's. The only thing I dont like personally is they feel WAY to small. They have great sound however and damn do they look sexy.

I guess its a good buy,There is only one problem.....when it comes time to change the strings,i hope you know how that since youre guitar has a floyd rose system,you know how to tune it,trust me ive been playing guitar for over a year now,and it still bugs me :P.

Gl on rocking out with that guitar.Peace


Dude, the rules state that you must post a picture of your new guitar.

Shitty ass B.C. Warlock + nice amp + distortion pedal = Amazing sound for a starter

Gotta love my C-1 FR though

i think u made the right choice in ur perspective. the only thing i hate about randy roads vs is that their a bitch to play sitting down

Congrats. Just make sure you're properly maintaining it. It'd be pointless to shell out a bunch of money on a decent guitar just to let it fall to s***.

I've never been a huge fan of the V body style, but Jackson RR Vs are great guitars. Sounds to me like you made a good buy, a store near my house has one for $800

What is your amp TS?


I have a Line 6 Toneport which plays through the computer and can emulate many different amps and tones, and a Line 6 Spider III. The spider was cheap and reccommended.


And on the guys about the FR, the salesman told me I'd have a pain doing it, but that it was worth learning to do it. He showed me how and I'm confident that with that demo and the internetz It shouldn't be a real bad pain.

I played the warlock which was $150 and though it sucked. Tried out like 20+ guitars and I thought the warlock was the worst after the crap Ephiphone SG I played.

Yea you're right about that. I was stuck for my first month with my Squier Strat and shitty Fender "starter amp" that picked up radio frequencies and buzzed everywhere. Then I got a Peavey amp. It's a lot better than the Fender, but by no means great.

Finally now, I am stuck for the next 3 months with a PRS Tremonti SE (Les Paul body) and a Roland Cube 30X. when my friend takes them back, I will HAVE to buy something new. I am saving up for an amp moreso than guitar (a Gibson Explorer is like $1400 or something stupid like that ).

Anyway nice guitar TS and post some pictures!!!

Thats actually what I started with. My cousin lent it to me. It was part of a $150 bundle.

Absolutely beautiful. Must be a bitch to play sitting down though (as with any flying V).
