Has everyone seen this? I had not until today. Interesting, apparently Randy hated the RR1.

I highly doubt he "hated" it...The second Jackson, i.e refined version was just easier access to the upper register. If he hated it so much, he would have been using the black axe on "Over the mountain, Believer, Flying High", etc...Sure he had started to incorporate the black one into the set, but I really think that is overstated. The Concorde has a very unique sound, I describe it as cleanly distorted, I have one..great, fun guitar with a unique tonality.

Haven't read that link yet but I also read w couple times over the years that Randy did not really like the black Jackson. Even though the the upper frets were more accessible he did not like the neck as it was to thin. The white Jackson had a neck more like a Gibson R8 apparently. That's a huge difference in guitars and I could see why he might not have liked it.

Randy told Grover that the 1st Pinstripe after receiving it in England while working on Diary , people called it a flying V and associated with that. That's what he didn't like about it, he loved the white one. I agree with devorerd, Randy did not hate it. He would have not played it as much as he did. Look he was used to slinging around HEAVY Les Pauls and was his fave. That throws out that story of it too big. The Black one when Grover gave it to him the day of the Cow Palace rehearsal he love how it looked and just stared at it. Like Shockwave was pointing out, In the Mike Shannon interview said Randy wasn't a fan of the wide flat radius because he was used to a les paul type neck similar to the White Pinstripe.

That´s what I always heard as well, he wanted a more 'radical' design because of that. But never heard in interviews if he really liked the Black Jackson? Of course he only played it for 2,5 months and was probably still getting used to it.
