UTILIZATION

Lots of joy. The Jackson neck is just wonderful to the eyes and touch.
Access to the upper frets might be difficult for some but it's ok.
It's a Roads guitar so you'll have to get used to its shape. It's not difficult to play it sitting, you only have to find the right position. I personally prefer to play sitting with a V-shaped guitar than with a Strat-shaped one. The guitar is well-balanced if you play on your feet (of course you must know how to set a strap).
It's really easy to get different sounds, just play around with the knobs.

SOUNDS

I play heavy metal (like 95% of all Jackson RR owners) and It has certainly blown me away!
I previously played an Ibanez RS240 with a Fender Champion 110 feeding a Harley Benton 212 speaker cabinet. The sound was muddy, but now... It sounds sharp but not too fat and with superb overtones. In short it's exactly what I was looking for.
Clean sounds are ok. It could have more sustain for my taste.
In short there's not much to say regarding its sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using this guitar for 1 week.
Most of all I love its shape which is certainly light-years ahead from a Strat. I also like the position of the output connector.
Before buying it I tested lots of guitars, from the DKMG Jackson to an Epiphone Les Paul and a Gibson Explorer.
Only the Jackson is comparable but it has active pickups.
I bought it secondhand. The value for money is excellent even if you buy it new.
Would you buy it again? I don't know... I think I'd rather choose the supreme Randy Roads model (RR1) because I always want better.
