Very good quality Japan-made Rhoads with a great look, excellent playability and quality tone. In this era Jackson used Duncan Designed humbuckers, with a pair of HB-105’s, which are a Distortion/59, except with Invader pole pieces. Don’t know why Duncan used these poles but they sound great so it’s cool. Cosmetically there’s only one tiny flaw which is a small bit of white showing on the tip of the headstock but we will touch that up and it will “go away” by the time you receive it. Features include an alder body with flamed maple veneer finished in a deep red, rock maple neck with rosewood fretboard, 22 jumbo frets, sharktooth inlays, 3-way switch with dual volume and a tone control, Floyd-Licensed double-locking tremolo, chrome hardware, and logo that just says “Jackson”. Included with this guitar is the huge Jackson Rhoads case that fits the guitar like a glove and offers incredible protection. For a quality MIJ Rhoads with case, a nice deal at $459.
