normally i hate ugly, pointy guitars like this, but i think this one pulls it off pretty well imo... maybe it's that dark "seductive" red.... i'm looking into a parker about the same color.
if it werent for it being a V i'd say it looks comfy as hell, but i can't stand playing v's.
i guess it's an 81 in the bridge, which emg is in the neck?

Cost between $1600-$1700 U.S. This includes shipping and the case, and it's totally custom, so it's really a great deal.

You rotten bastard, that guitar is awesome. I always wanted a Rhoads that is 24 frets. When I try to solo, I keep my bottom 3 fingers hanging down, and it touches the knobs, so I would have the volume knob moved. Otherwise, nice man.

Man, i just came up with my dream guitar.

A Thunder body in mahogny, neck-thru/set thru mahogny neck, reverse headstock (the on in the picture), flamed maple top with dark blood red see through finish and a tremolo, JB/Jazz combo etc.

What do you think?

He ordered a Ran RR not long after Fritz. He should have his soon too.

I'm just glad that the whole US Customs thing is fixed now. You guys will never have to know that hell Just in case you do I'm still here for you.

Okay, after playing it all day yesterday, I still love it, but I've managed to come up with 2 small gripes. First off, yes, I occasionally hit the volume knob when playing, but it's nothing I won't get used to soon.

Secondly, the input jack is placed in such a way (under the smaller fin) that it's very awkward to play sitting down. The Jackson version remedies this by having the input well out of the way on the larger fin, but this would have been a bitch to configure on the inside. I may remedy this by putting the strap on and adjusting it so it just hangs at sit-down height. No big deal for "just jamming," but if I'm practicing hardcore it's a little frustrating. Anyone got any other suggestions?

Sorry it hear about the input jack and volume knob. Did you talk with Dariusz as to where to have those things put on the guitar? I did and he made it perfectly the way I wanted. Try using a angled plug cord, like Def said, and run it around the back strap button behind the guitar. That might be better for you.

The RR body style really only allows the knobs to be placed where they are; this is no big deal, I just have to watch my fingers when picking on the higher strings. After playing it more today, it's really not that bad playing standing up a lot. As we all know, playing standing up can be a lot harder if you don't practice that way, so this is good stage experience. \m/ It really is a killer guitar, I can't imagine needing anything different for playing metal. It just feels really good to play it.

ive only been talking about it in the ran threads for a couple months now, you might remember me as haxsk8, i had my forum name changed to h4x5k8, or as some people here refer to me as H8

Also i was gonna talk to dariuzs about the jack thing i noticed on some other custom V's like alexi laiho's esp custom rr he has the jack on the bottom side of the upper wing and it just runs up to his wireless thingy, i was gonna ask if he could do that but i figured i would just use an angled jack.
