This guitar has seen very little use, it's in almost new condition (one tiny ding on corner, shown in picture gallery). As Randy Rhoads is probably my all-time favorite guitarist (maybe top 3),  I had no intentions of selling this guitar, but I need the money so it is priced to sell. 

The Jackson RR5 Rhoads solid body electric guitar brings you
the style, tone, and ultra-fast playability of a legendary guitar design,
complete with an ultra-solid neck-through-body design! Following in the
footsteps of the original Randy Rhoads (the first Jackson produced), the RR5
Rhoads features a distinctively aggressive "V"-shaped body. Its fast,
comfortable maple neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard. Also included:
Gold hardware, tailpiece, and pickguard as well as two DiMarzio Humbucking pickups (Bridge: Super Distortion, Neck: PAF Pro) replacing the factory Seymore Duncans. Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves
more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it
approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. You'll
feel the power when you play a RR5 Rhoads!

* Replaced Seymore Duncan Pickups with DiMarzio Super Distortion Humbucker in the bridge position (as Randy Rhoads used in his polka-dot flying-V) and DiMarzio PAF Pro in the neck position (Randy used the DiMarzio PAF in his Polka-dot V). Have played it through both my Marshall JCM900 and Orange AD30HTC (Marshall 1960A cabs) and it sounds amazing in both live (only 2 live uses) and studio settings. But dont take my word for it...

favorite among his records… It was all done through a Marshall. He had a polka-dot
Charvel [made by Karl Sandoval] that we used – pretty much all the guitar tracks were done with that
guitar.”

suicide solution-@ least when i saw him in february of 1982.”
