Gearank Recommendation

The Jackson JS32 Rhoads was featured on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from November 2016 until March 2019.

Overview

This guitar bears the name of Grover Jackson and Randy Rhoads, the same two who helped kick start this company.

The asymmetric V shape of this guitar was co-designed by Rhoads himself, which gave this instrument a distinct shape that appeals to many rock guitarists.

All the shred features are available in this budget friendly instrument, including a 24-fret fast action neck, twin high-output humbuckers and a Floyd Rose licensed tremolo.

This workhorse worthy guitar is highly recommend for rock guitarists who are looking for a standout instrument that's not too expensive.

Unfortunately this has been discontinued, however you can see excellent alternatives in our guide to The Best Electric Guitars Under $500.
