yea,there are differences...

look at the brass tailpiece itself...there's a wider side,and a side that's longer and more narrow...

on the black Jackson,the wider side is on the left,with the longer,more narrow part on the right...

it's reversed on the off-white Jackal.... :)

Well I don't think that it is a big deal that it isn't an exact copy that is what makes it unique. Looks like a great guitar. Congrats!!!

Maybe the NAAM guitar was supposed to have a smaller pickguard to accomodate the reversed tailpiece, and all this done to match the reversed shark inlays as well.

Maybe this was an 'on purpose' thing between Randy and Grover. To basically 'reverse' the black jackson....even having the color to be 'White'...totally reverse or opposite to a black color.

Just a thought..who knows.

No...it's not a 'big deal'....but we happened to notice, we have an eye for detail and beauty....and Kev's guitar has got the detail and beauty regardless!

i really never noticed it either, the changes between the prototypes and the production models. i belive were just cosmetic i am sure the pick gaurd is smaller i am sure because of simplified electronics contained on it (no tone wiring just straight volume front and rear) but man that roller bridge sure takes some getting used to its really tall.

I'm posting as brief as possible because I'm in class right now, but, I based all my custom brass bits and pieces off of the only photos I have of the V - from the Clegg images and the black and white from the '83 NAMM show.

Naturally be different than the guitars made currently, but I'm going off what resources I have. :wink:

& let me tell you... the sustain is CRAZY on that thing!

ok so for the last 3 or four days it has been tuned down to open D or 1 step below 440 and the snarl and sustain and harmonic overtones are amazing. better than ANY Jackson i have ever played (and i have played a few) but even up in the 440 register the sustain and tone is great. the full bodied les paul is the only guitar that compares in true tone i cant say the pinstripe cuz it has a floyd and its a sustain killer. all floyds are and they kill some tone as well. so far the pureists are amazed at the sheer sound size of this guitar *0

I have not heard from Mike in a very long time. I do hope all is well with him.

I wonder when he will be up and running for business.

My PDV with the Kahler is still first in line, right Mike..... :wink: :lol:

Heck, didn't realise the exchange rate now!!

I'm down for a Jackal, & was going to get a Jackson RR55fr in the meantime, but thinking about getting a RR3 now, as they are much cheaper - leaving me the extra towards the Jackal.

Anybody got a RR3 at all? Price wise they are pretty cheap. I've currently got a Zakk Bullseye Epi, but i'm ready for a change. especially with a trem.

I've still got the money aside for a Jackal, not touching that. I just fancied another guitar in the meantime, as the Jackal could be awhile off :(

I wouldn't sell it, as i'd like to build up a little collection of guitars eventually. My epi looks lonely on its own :lol: . Well, i've still got my Black Westfield Les Paul......had to start playing with something.

Thought the RR3 would be a decent guitar, especially for he price.

how much longer of a wait?

is anything even official, as far as order list goes?

and how much does one cost?

i saw a jackal on eBay for $1500 last year,

i skipped out on it for a JEM7VWH,

now I've been kicking my self for it ever since...

i would love to order a pinstripe one.

well not much building takes place in the winter months because his paint booth is located outside and he is located in minneapolis minnisota. he has had some personal issues and some work issues. he builds as a hobby not as fulltime,(although i have been trying to convice him he can do it)

costs are all relitive, these are all one off handmade instruments. pinstripes are his specialty. the PDV is a relative newcomer to the fold. and the namm83 repro is one of a kind (mine) he can do anything you like he had a killer bolt on a while back. and he made a flaming skull guitar (like the hells angel backpatch logo. there are some guys that are getting priority positions on the list because they were slated for a build before his problems kinda kicked in. as spring approaches i think we will hear some more from mike.

I'm Baaaaaa aaaack! (in limited capacity at first)

Thanks for all the talks Kev you really are a great friend.

Anyway, I have a great connection at school a couple of nights a week too! :D
I use dial-up at home and it's gotten to the point where it's almost not even worth using :?
I am indeed starting (very slow and limited right now) to contact those who've been in touch the longest and most frequent. I have the first 3 contacted at the moment. (I didn't forget you guys either [Shawn, Dogman, & DavidDenson]
If I haven't contacted you, please contact me at my email address with "RR.tk- your screen name" and I'll try to answer you as soon as time permits.

I'll be in Florida from March 11-17 with my wife, so, I won't have any kind of computer access then.

Let's hope this goes well and everybody gets some great stuff to play! Game ON!
-Mike

Keep in mind folks... I'm going to be making primarily Rhoads stuff for a bit, but, I can certainly do custom things too.

That is one hell of a good looking guitar!

Is the paint job like Randy's or is it just black and white?
