This Rhoads RRX24 is a brand new factory second. The only defect I find is a couple of tiny (less than 1 mm) flecks that appear to be dust caught in the finish.
The guitar has a great setup and the tuning stability is solid. The neck has a great, fast feel. All strings ring out clearly at all frets. The playability is superb.
The Seymour Duncan Blackout active pickups excel at high gain tones, but are also quite good at overdriven and clean tones.
The tremolo bar is included. I will include a quality gig bag with 20 mm high density padding. This is an upgrade, as these guitars do not normally come with a case or gig bag.
"The Jackson X Series models continue the metal legacy pioneered by the immortal Randy Rhoads. Regal and proud, the RRX24 offers fantastic tone, ultra-fast playability and unbelievable value for 21st century guitarists.
The RRX24 features a basswood body, one-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, and a 12"-16" compound radius bound dark rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and reverse Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock.
Decked out for today’s modern metaller, the RRX24 delivers searing tone from a pair of active Seymour Duncan® Blackout pickups that can be further shaped by two volume knobs, a single tone control and three-way blade switch. It's also equipped with a recessed Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo system for outstanding sustain and solid intonation.
Infused with spotlight-ready style, the RRX24 is available in four finishes: the Black with Neon Green Bevels model offers reverse neon green sharkfin inlays and chrome hardware; the Black with Yellow Bevels offers reverse pearloid sharkfins and gold hardware; the Black with Neon Pink model offers reverse neon pink sharkfin inlays and black hardware; the Gloss Black offers reverse black sharkfin inlays and black hardware."
