Model: 291431 | Pro Series
Jackson’s Pro RRT-5 and RRT-3 Rhoads models are elegantly formidable new takes on the Jackson guitar that started it all, with supercharged features, gold hardware and a choice of Gloss Black and Ivory (with black pinstriping) finishes. The three-piece maple through-body neck has an ultra-smooth oiled back finish and rock-solid graphite reinforcement, while the compound-radius (12”-16”) bound ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays. Other premium features include Seymour Duncan® JB™ SH4 (bridge) and Jazz™ SH2N (neck) humbucking pickups, three-way toggle pickup switching and an adjustable string-through-body bridge and tailpiece.
Jackson Pro series instruments are exactly that—pro-level guitars for pro-level players. Neck-through-body models feature hand-rubbed oil neck finishes and graphite neck reinforcement rods for the ultimate in sleek playability and rock-solid sustain and stability. Bolt-on-neck models feature an innovative “wrap-around” three-bolt neck joint with remarkable strength, style and feel.
Jackson Pro series guitars are built with the very best parts for pro tone, stability and durability for stage and studio alike. Nowhere is this more evident than the bridge. Pro series guitars feature Floyd Rose® 1000 Series tremolos, Jackson Hi-Mass hard-tail and string-through bridges.
Pro series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
Pro series models present Jackson players with an alluring assortment of stylistic features and options. These include ebony, maple and rosewood fingerboards; sharkfin, offset-dot and “piranha” fingerboard inlays; deep solid colors and beautifully figured tops; and, of course, the classic Jackson six-in-line headstock.
