    The time has come. I have too much stuff(i.e. I need/want something else and the un-played stuff should go). So the old Rhoads is on the block. I love it and it plays itself but it just literally hangs on the wall looking cool. It's an 86 or 87 Rhoads. The serial says 86 San Dimas but I've...

    I definitely didn't NEED this but it was just sitting there on Craigslist for $120 so I decided to pick it up. I'm not likely to play too much so the price justifies my Rhoads GAS. :lol: I've had some trouble tracking down what exactly it is. I know it's on the budget end of the Rhoads...

    Never felt the need to post something like this before on a subject that I figured would be explored to death... but I've decided to get a Jackson Rhoads, but having a hard time picking through the litter. They all seem to be missing one or two details that I want... except for the RR1. Maybe...

    https://reverb.com/item/5006912-fernandes-robbin-crosby-king-v-1984-white Fernandes doesn't have a ton of name cachet, but let's not kid ourselves, pretty much anything high end made in Japan from this era rules. Dude has it listed as a King V, but that is definitely the original Robbin...

    35 years ago today the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place was killed in a plane crash. "Over The Mountain" blew my young mind. He was taken far too soon. I can only imagine what he would have done if he had lived.

    Came across this Kramer Vanguard Rhoads type V on Reverb and I kinda like it. Now, despite the what the listing says, I know it's not a classic 80s-Made in the USA era Kramer (PU arrangement, 24 frets, input jack location, etc) and was produced sometime in the late 90s - early 2000s (serial # is...

    So I'm mainly posting this on the hardcore Jackson forums, but on the obscure chance one of you guys knows someone who has one and is interested or there is a member I don't know about. So I'm a huge Jackson fan and have owned just about everything. I love it all. But these days I am mainly...

    Holy. Shit. :jj: Shame you have to be Robbin Crosby sized (pushing 6'4") to play one.

    Jackson Rhoads Pro, one of the good ones from the early nineties. These are coveted for being as good as the USA models. I got this from Garret, and it's a really good one. Definitely a players guitar, since it has pick scratches and buckle rash, but it's got ridiculously low action and...

    Looking for a replica of Randy Rhoads' polka dot V. Only interested in black with white dots and with the harpoon headstock- not interested in the Jackson roundhorn version. Ideally, I'd prefer one with a Floyd, but I'll consider a vintage style trem. I figure it's a tall order, but I'll put it...

    Delores Rhoads is finally reunited with her son, Randy. Delores passed-away this morning peacefully at her home.

    Somewhat belated NGD. Randomly got a fascination for Rhoads styled V's and figured I'd grab one cheap. All the MIJ RR's are somewhat pricey at present so I decided to track down a Fernandes version instead. This is a 1985 JS-75, the model below the JS-100 that had the bound neck and shark tooth...

    I've been on the lookout for an early 90's Japanese made Jackson Rhoads Pro for quite sometime now, but no such luck on Ebay or Craigslist. If I find one it's either under $500 and sells right away or the owner's asking price is too outrageous. I'm looking to find one between $500-$600 so if you...
