My Jackson Double V

Postby NessiSanders » Sat Mar 21, 2015 7:28 am

Hey !

This is my pink Jackson Vinnie Vincent.

It's a copy, the real is too expensive for me ^^ I paid this guitar 800 dollars.

Cool! Is it the guitar we had pics with T.J.'s name?

Come on, Vinnie, let's sign some contract with Tom Palecki or Jackson to make a few official VV's! Don't let chinese people be the only VV builders!

rareelectricguitar??? Looks like they are pretty good painters. You can see from the rounded corners in the shadow fins that they've obviously used a CNC to cut the body from 1 piece of timber to save time and effort!

It's no Paleki, Shannon, Carruthers, Davies or mystery Carvin luthier build obviously but still looks pretty good.

Nessi,
Most importantly, how do you like your guitar?

How do you think that it plays?
What are the frets like? Are they level?
How does it sound?
The tremolo is not recessed are you satisfied with its range up and down?
What is the neck shape like? Round or Flat and thin?

Congratulations

Kev

- Shramiac, yes I bought this guitar on RareElectricGuitar.

-Genebaby, the sound is not really good because the original pickup is a Wilkinson.

-Slayer, I really love my guitar. It's good to play with this guitar. The neck is round like a Charvel, I'm not satisfied with the tremolo, poor quality....

I paid this guitar 800 dollars but this price is too expensive for the quality =/ But you now what ? I can say I've got a Vinnie Vincent guitar !!!

$800 is pretty good for a neck through VVV guitar. You can improve the trem and pickup and it's a relative bargain, if the wood, neck etc are good.

I think I will install a Schaller tremolo.

And last week I bought an EMG 81 pickup =D

Look at the different pictures of my Double V creation :

I would ask for the guitar with no hardware, just the wood/frets etc.

Do they let you choose things like the fretwire etc?

Stainless Steel Frets might last the lifetime of the guitar?

That's pretty cool. How were they to deal with?

How long was the build time?

Do they offer a case for it?

They are cool, when we ask a question they answer quickly.
The build time is about 3 months. And they don't offer the case, the price is 150 dollars for it.

They insist on not supplying a case! They say it pushes up the freight cost too high.

Judging by your's Nessi, it looks like they packed it very well for transporting.

Oh, ok, I'm wondering where the$150 price for a case was from.

Do they have a case they can sell but don't really want to?

When you buy a guitar and the case on RareElectricGuitar they send the guitar and the body separately. I don't know why... The problem is that customs are expensive in France so if you just want the case the price is $150 + $100 for customs =/

Ha ha, yes I am. I would get the case.

Our customs has a higher limit, the case by itself would have no extra costs.

The guitar might make it through too.

I'm going to fucking puke! :P

Then it can be an ornament hanging on his wall and never be played LOL. He will hit the arm one time and bohhhhhwwww out of tune. If we want to be really authentic you can ask him to leave the locking bridge on there too so he cant tune at all while he is playing. If the locking nut was removed it might work OK but few besides Vinnie and Brad Gillis have made a Floyd Rose without fine tuners function with a locking nut. That is a feat that most of us could never handle and I think that we can agree that both Vinnie and Brad are exceptional musicians. I have a couple bridges similar to what you propose and definitely in my case I need to tune as I'm playing if I use the tremolo vigorously.

The best bridges out there are the "FR's", Schaller Floyd's and the Ibanez Edge's with fine tuners and locking nuts in my opinion

Love you Andrew still :lol:

Super rad replica! They just started on my VV...

I've read and re-read many reviews about Rare Guitars and many customers are overly satisfied with their guitar(s).

Super stoked to see these thread...Boyz Are Gunna Rock.
