Well, I got Jackson Flying v Rhoads from a store, and it was set up pretty well. I raised the action I tiny bit and got it feeling the way I wanted it. There were no sharp frets, dead notes, or anything of that nature, which surprised me considering its a low end instrument. Very good Craftmanship here.
I play mostly Jackson Guitar Flying V, meaning a lot of 80’s shred, and more modern metal like Killswitch Engage, Bullet For My Valentine, and Some core style stuff like The Devil Wears Prada. I’ve found at least usable tones for all of these genres. I’ve also used it for rock like the white stripes. It is a very versatile guitar for the money. The pickups will most likely be replaced soon. I’m considering Seymour Duncan Livewires
I’m reviewing the new Jackson Guitar V. I got it free in an even trade for an old PRS SE I never use and didn’t want (so please don’t try to tell me what a bad deal I got). It has a 24 fret, bolt on maple neck with a rosewood fretboard. It has the two stock Jackson humbuckers, with a three way switch, volume knob and tone knob. It is also string through body. It has the sharkfin inlays. Over all it looks like a metal beast =). I traded for it with a gig bag. I believe I got a good deal. I couldnt find what kind of wood it is made from, but I imagine it is some sort of alder.
I recently purchased a Jackson Dinky STrat style guitar. It has a licensed jackson FLoyd in it and EMGHZ pick ups. The floyd kinda sucks though. It slips. Its not a smooth whammy, it has a slight lurch when you use it. how much is areal Jackson FLoyd Rose, and will it go into the Jackson easily, and is replacing this Licensed jackson FLoyd, with a true real Floyd a better idea??

The Jackson Rhoads RRXMG sports a compound-radius rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 12″ radius thet keeps things nice and confortable for natural, relaxed chord work. Up top, a 16″ radius lays it all out flat for effortless, low-action high-speed runs with monumental string bends without fretting out. The best of both worlds.
Through-body maple neck and Floyd Rose = prodigious sustain and divebomb-ability
From bow to stern, the Jackson Rhoads RRXMG is set up for mammoth sustain. You get a through-body maple neck – a proven sustain-enhancing construction method – and a Floyd Rose Special double locking 2-point vibrato. Top that off with two ferocious active EMG humbuckers, and you’ve got a recipe for slippery-pitch expressiveness – with rock-solid tuning stability and endless sustain.
If looks could kill…
If you’re after a guitar that looks as mean as it sounds, Sweetwater has your axe. The Rhoads body shape alone is enough to convey instant attitude. Throw in Jackson’s distinctive pointy headstock and Sharkfin position inlays, and you’ve got one arresting-looking guitar. The Jackson Rhoads RRXMG is one of the sharpest-looking guitars around; a serious axe wielder’s instrument of destruction. Exactly what you’ve been looking for, right?
