The legendary guitarist Randy Rhoads was Jackson’s first customer who asked to create a model that met the demands of his technically challenging playing with visual panache. The result continues to evolve, meeting the needs of players who came of age listening to his groundbreaking work. The Pro Rhoads RR is a proud claimant to the throne of high tech guitars designed for shredding.

A pair of modern Seymour Duncan pickups drives this guitar’s flexible tone—a crisp JB TB4 humbucking bridge pickup and warm ‘59 SH1N humbucking neck pickup combine for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for immaculate cleans and raw, raunchy distortion. The ultra-fast one-piece maple neck bears a pair of graphite rods for reinforcement against the assaults of temperature and humidity, remaining true for unbeatable performance while 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.
A 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard is engineered 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. The sensitive Floyd Rose FRT-O1000 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 most recognizable of Jackson’s myriad offerings, this guitar bears the familiar aesthetics that make Jacksons in demand for performing guitarists. From the all-black hardware to the unique inlays, pointed 6-In- Line headstock and revolutionary body designs, this instrument is very distinctly a Jackson creation. Jackson guitars don’t just push the envelope, they annihilate it— and the Pro Rhoads RR is no exception to the rule.
