The guitar itself is light weight and decent for anyone who is being welcomed to playing a guitar that is not a natural shape. Duncan designed pick ups aren't all that but ok for someone who has somewhat a decent amp.
When you need a guitar that is ultimately refined in every way from the highest quality craftsmanship, to the sound and playability; the Jackson RR3 Rhoads V has it all. Pickups are replaced to my Signature Diamond DiMarzio Titanium Pickups, they're are not built or wired like any conventional pickup on the market today. They have several times the high output of the highest typical pickup, and as a result these innovative pickups are crystal clear, dead silent, & built for effortless rhythm work & shredding at any volume for any metal genre. Other than the characteristics that were described and shown by example; their rarity has been confirmed and nothing else is currently known.
Amazing guitar, Black, Black hardware. Made in Japan in 1990 officially but was partly made in north america. Stock jackson active pickups I replaced with Seymour Duncans. TB4 in the bridge, 59N in the neck position. Alder body (I think), Ebony board. Neck through body. Playing amazingly. The first real guitar I owned, bought new at the age of 16.
