The Jackson Pro Series Rhoads RR24 Electric Guitar in Charcoal Gray takes the awesome style of the original design and ramps up its metal-side with hotter pickups and a visually dominating charcoal gray finish. For those who like it loud, then the RR24 is definitely the one for you.
Unique Rhoads' body shape
The distinctive Rhoads' body shape is instantly recognisable, with a clipped lower bout that sits much smaller than the upper bout. Built using mahogany, the body is reassuringly solid yet retains a balanced and lightweight feel. Paired with the mahogany is an ash top with charcoal gray finish that is protected by a coating of satin.
Reinforced yet elegant neck
The single-piece neck-through-body construction optimises sustain to give your tone the legs to ring out for days for beefier riffs, searing licks, and tantalisingly moreish solos. Graphite reinforcement ensures that no matter what you throw at this beauty, the neck remains firm and unyielding. The sublime scarf joint encourages a snug feel against the body during performances. The classic Rhoads' neck shape has been applied to create the same feel that the man himself favoured. Single-ply binding traces along the neck to ensure seamless transitions between each and every fret.
Married to the neck is a heavenly ebony fingerboard, which is home to 24 jumbo frets that are adorned with alumiloid sharkfin inlays to guide your way in style. The compound radius fingerboard lends itself well to smooth string bends, elegantly executed legato licks, and those all-important arpeggios to complete the fretboard gymnastics' routine. The oiled finish maximises the lightning fast feel so that nothing can restrain you.
Punishing Seymour Duncan pickups
The Pro Series Rhoads RR24 is equipped with a pair of blistering pickups from Seymour Duncan, the TB-6 in the bridge and the SH-6N in the neck. Make no mistake, this coupling is not for the faint of heart and those who want a mild-mannered model might want to look elsewhere. The aggressive edge produce by these beauties is perfect for anyone who want to wear their metal colours on their sleeve. Shredding never sounded this good!
Randy Rhoads wanted his model endure life on the road, and Jackson have adhered to this spec by kitting out the Rhoads' RR24 with roadworthy hardware. The headstock is home to Jackson sealed die-cast tuning machines, which fix each string firmly before passing them via the Floyd Rose FRT 02000 locking nut on their way to the Floyd Rose FRT-02000 double-locking tremolo bridge. No matter how much you dive or wail on this beauty, you can rest assured that your tuning will remain intact with intonation preserved.
From the headstock to the straplocks, everything has a feel of durability and quality, ensuring that the Jackson Pro Series Rhoads RR24 electric guitar in Charcoal Gray is the metal monster we've all been waiting for.
