I currently have two of this particular guitar, one red, one blue. I have always been a fan of Jackson guitars since I started listening to METALLICA back in the early 90’s. When I first saw Kirk play his Jackson I knew I was sold on what I wanted at some point. I have had many guitars since I started playing though never seemed to keep them long enough due to mainly hocking them to help fund my old drug habit. Today I have four of the V range of guitars three being Jackson and one a Kramer.
I bought these Jacksons secondhand, again from my favourite pawn shop for a couple hundred bucks each and have loved them ever since. I love the fact that they are a metal guitar though can be used for many styles. I really like the necks as I find them super smooth, very lightweight and they have a great sound with a good distortion. Again, I could find no faults with these guitars. I just f**king love them.
I have my red Jackson tuned to dropped D and I have my blue one tuned to B.
The Jackson JS30RR Rhoads JS Series Electric Guitar looks great and plays fast. Late guitar whiz Randy Rhoads backed up Ozzy with lightning-fast, classically-based riffs. He worked with Jackson to design this unique-looking and fast-playing electric guitar with dual Jackson CVR2 humbucker pickups for plenty of high-end sparkle. The string-thru alder body with bolt-on maple neck produces great sustain and the compound radius rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets aid clean runs. Jackson put chrome tune-o-matic bridge and die-cast tuners on the JS30RR guitar.
Jackson’s compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you’ll play better.
