The Jackson RR or Randy Rhoads model is an iconic guitar. Metal and hard rock guitarists from all levels have run to this range as not only do they look really cool but they sound and feel great as well. Sadly there have been few good value left handed Jackson guitars...until now. The Jackson RRXT is now available in a left handed version for powerful high gain riffing.
Randy Rhoads Body
This is a guitar that was not just made famous by Randy Rhoads but was actually commissioned by the man himself with an asymmetrical V body. Now the Randy Rhoads model comes in many different versions and the RRXT sits as a great value workhorse option that will suit both hobby and gigging guitarists as well.
Hot Duncan Pickups
With a guitar like this you want some hot humbucking pickups. Randy Rhaods himself is known for his high gain crushing distortion and he gets that partially from his incredible amp lineup and partially from his guitar which was fitted with hot, passive pickups designed by Seymour Duncan. The RRXT has been fitted with Seymour Duncan Designed HB-103 pickups that are perfect for this kind of hard rock and metal playing.
Here's what Jackson say about the Randy Rhoads RRXT LH
As sleek as an airliner and as iconic as the artist who inspired and co-designed-the oft imitated, but never surpassed Randy Rhoads-the X-Series Rhoads RRXT LH is a slick, stylish guitar that packs fearsome tone and speedy playability into a compact package designed for left-handed players. As affordable as it is powerful, this axe is ready to scream and blaze all night long.
A duo of Duncan Designed HB103 high-output ceramic humbucking pickups generates clearly defined tones-ideal for pushing an amp into blissfully crunchy overdrive while retaining highly dynamic articulation. The basswood body has a crisp, defined tone that plays well with heavy distortion and crystalline clean tones and the speedy one-piece maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods refuses to budge, no matter how much environmental stress it's exposed to while the neck-through design offers superior sustain and increased playability. A 12-16"-compound radius fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and classic Jackson pearloid sharkfin inlays graces the neck with the perfect launching pad for fleet riffing, complex chords and fiery leads. The dense chords found in today's music require pinpoint accurate intonation to retain their clarity, and the Jackson compensated and adjustable strings-through-body bridge grants precise intonation, along with enhanced sustain.
Reach for the Rhoads RRXT whenever you find yourself in need of a guitar with classic metal style, including the beveled body and ever-popular pointed 6-In-Line headstock, and epically monstrous tone.
