Great Buy, but Expensive

Pros:Playability, looks

Cons:Cost

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this guitar if money is available


The Jackson RR1 is of all the guitars I own my favorite, both for its looks and playability. I purchased the instrument in April of 2006, and although it put a sizeable dent in my bank account, I have not once regretted the acquisition. My guitar is all black with white binding, which is not only the cheapest option in terms of finish, but the best looking in my opinion. Even though I recently upgraded pickups to increase sound quality and output, the standard pickups still sound great, and, if the large price tag has discouraged any thoughts of additional spending, are good enough to use long-term.
The guitar is perfect for my style of playing as well as creating the image I would like to convey when I perform. However, I wouldn’t say I recommend the guitar for everybody. First off, it is far too expensive of an instrument for a beginner to buy, mainly because of the possibility that a novice player could lose interest in it or because musical styles are very prone to change at such an early point in a musician’s career. The Jackson RR1 is mainly for performers playing hard rock or heavy metal because of both its aggressive looks and heavy sound. Additionally, the action is low and the neck is thin and smooth which makes it ideal for genres geared for a more virtuoso-type guitarist. Overall, I would suggest purchasing the Jackson to anyone who is looking for a fast, aggressive guitar and is willing to pay a high price.
