RANDY'S GUITAR @ HARD ROCK NIAGRA FALLS

Post by houselabdj »

A couple of yrs. went to Niagra Falls ( Canada side ) & visited HR cafe which was the 23rd HR I've been to across the country . I've taken pics of memorabilia @ nearly all of them having seen NOTHING of Randy 'till I walked in this Niagra location ( The entire place was booked for a conference later in the afternoon , but the manager let me walk around after I explained how many HR's I'd been to ) . Was nearly floored when I saw the guitar ! Only pic I took & have to take @ an angle as all you see will be just flash . I'm not knowledgeable about Randys arsenal of guitars besides the polka dot V , white jackson & black & white Les Pauls he played ( I hope I'm right , sorry if not ) my question is .......... is this really Randys guitar ? I know the Hard Rock has a very deep budget & incredible acess to some incredible memorabilia , ( even better than the Rock & Roll hall of fame ) but not EVERYTHING is the real deal , but they come pretty darn close . New to this forum & a big fan , as I "only " have the early Ozzy Lp's , 12" , pic discs , & 7" + Blizzard tourbook & a couple of CBS 8X10 press photos of Randy . Hope I can post the pic !

He never played that thing. He died before the Jackson RR went into production. This guitar pictured is from 1986.

If you look closely it's signed by Ozzy. That's probably why they put it up with the Randy pictures.

I have noticed over the years that the HRC have had guitars and other items that are suppose to come from the Rock stars etc. But they are just signature guitars or one very similar. I wonder if that is an item of Randy's clothing below the guitar ?. Looks a little big if it is.

I thought the same thing about the jacket. The HRC in Phili has a Rhoads Jackson. Like his black Jackson. It wasn't his. Randy's had smaller shark fin inlays and some other details are different.

We discussed this a while ago and as we all found out, it wasn't Randy's guitar.

\thats an 83 rr.. the same type that shows jake e lee bitting the string on in that famous pic... easy to spot.. doesnt have crown head tuners.. has black on the tune omatic(randys was all brass) randys had black volume and tone knobs, hand painted jackson logos, smaller shark fin inlays. plus this guitar looks to have gold plated hardware not brass, pick up rings are brass not black.

I've wondered if his Les Paul was buried with him when they built his memorial. I know Dee was pictured with it after his death, but having his headstone stolen twice maybe they had it locked away in the new thing they built.

No it wasn't, Gibson guys had it to get their plans for the RR LPC, also there's recent photos of it in the "coffee table book"
:wink:
Cool! I gotta get that book

That's disgusting
a cheap horrid color piece of crap.
The hard rock in Philly has a Black Jackson RR model,w/blizzard uk tour book centerfold framed W/a fake road case (supposedly randys LOL)

but the rhoads family has all of Randys guitars in their possession.
