Jackson Pro Series Rhoads RRMG, Satin Silver, Ebony
Sleek Space Age style meets the ultimate evolution of the electric guitar in the Pro Rhoads RRMG, a wicked fast instrument designed to pump out flurries of notes with ease. Borne from a design collaboration between famed shred guitarist Randy Rhoads and Jackson, this is the instrument that started it all-the foundation of metal as we know and love it today.
Harmonically rich, with superb inter-string balance, the RRMG is powered by a duo of active EMG® humbucking pickups-an 81 in the bridge position and an coil-splittable 89 in the neck position. Mounted directly to the body for increased sustain through enhanced vibration transfer, these high-output pickups are just the trick for cranking out heavily-saturated overdriven tones while retaining enough clarity to punch through a thick onstage mix. The speedy neck profile is engineered for blazing guitar work, removing any obstacles to fleet-fingered playing and granting easier access to the upper frets. The sensitive Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 recessed double-locking tremolo adds expressive vibrato to notes and chords with the tap of a finger while working in concert with the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut for rock-solid tuning performance and precise intonation. The ultra-fast three-piece maple neck bears a pair of graphite rods for reinforcement against the assaults of temperature and humidity, remaining true for unbeatable performance. The 12"-16" compound radius fingerboard is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing-more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
Jackson is the progenitor of high-tech guitar style, and the elegantly innovative Rhoads model is one-of-a-kind. Black hardware-including a slick-looking anodized aluminum pickguard, Jackson sealed die-cast tuning machines and Dunlop® dual-locking strap buttons-is joined by the unmistakable pointed 6-In-Line headstock and unique body design for eye-catching appeal. A sleek guitar, borne of a desire for more style, sound and playability, the Pro Rhoads RRMG is a trend-setting instrument that defies belief.
REAL NECK-THROUGH CONSTRUCTION AND WRAP-AROUND BOLT-ONS
Jackson Pro series instruments are exactly that-pro-level guitars for pro-level players. Neck-through-body models feature hand-rubbed oil neck finishes and graphite neck reinforcement rods for the ultimate in sleek playability and rock-solid sustain and stability. Bolt-on-neck models feature an innovative "wrap-around" three-bolt neck joint with remarkable strength, style and feel.
FLOYD ROSE® TREMOLOS, COMPENSATED JACKSON HI-MASS HARD-TAIL AND STRING-THROUGH BRIDGES
Jackson Pro series guitars are built with the very best parts for pro tone, stability and durability for stage and studio alike. Nowhere is this more evident than the bridge. Pro series guitars feature Floyd Rose® 1000 Series tremolos, Jackson Hi-Mass hard-tail and string-through bridges.
Pro series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
GORGEOUS JACKSON STYLE
Pro series models present Jackson players with an alluring assortment of stylistic features and options. These include ebony, maple and rosewood fingerboards; sharkfin, offset-dot and "piranha" fingerboard inlays; deep solid colors and beautifully figured tops; and, of course, the classic Jackson six-in-line headstock.
