    Now here's a unique bird. I don't imagine you see many of these floating around at all. It's a '00 Jackson Rhoads Roswell, MIJ.

    Despite being weirdly shaped (I'm a Gibson LP and Tele guy), it plays so damn nice. I'm going to play it at my church this Sunday :D

    I love the finish on it and inlays on it. The blue sparkles are really nice and the inlays are freaking awesome.

    Very nice!

    You might scare the congregation with that futuristic-looking thing, though.

    The congregation's already seen my Tony Iommi SG a few years back, so this is going to be a piece of cake!

    Very cool! I always wanted one of the original aluminum bodied ones.

    If George Jetson played death metal, this is the guitar he'd play.

    Very cool inlays.

    Enjoy.

    Very awesome. Where did you manage to snag that from? I don't even remember seeing one for sale, anywhere, ever.

    I hope you're a Scientologist. Just kidding. That thing is sick! I've seen a few go up for sale and was always tempted.

    I found it hanging at my local music store. Everyone thought it was a cheap import, like one of those Indonesian Jacksons.

    Church was a success! Despite it coming stock with the Duncan Design, it actually sounds really good.

    Very cool looking guitars. I tried to like an aluminum bodied one when they first came out, but the shape and feel just didn't work out for me.
