    How much would you pay for a RR24M white? I'm thinking of selling it for 600 or something. It could be wise to invest a couple hundred more to get a true V axe for life, the near mythical RR24.

    There's some stain from the inlays spread on the maple, which is normal I suppose, haven't washed it off, the volume knob was loose but I tightened it up. Otherwise it's mint, strings set and not a single scratch.

    I have a Jackson RR24M (white), too. I think 600 is a good price. I'd have bought it off you it was the black one.

    There ya go. I tightened up the knob and it's perfect now. There's some natural stain on the maple on frets 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, that comes from the dark inlays when your fingers keep touching them all the time (I only play after washing hands with soap, but this can't be avoided with dark coffee color inlays), but I wiped some of it off with wet paper from the middle fret in that one pic, but I won't be wiping it all off cos you'll wanna do it when changing the strings, then you can apply the oil too, should become shiny as new with some brushing. These strings have been on for five years and should be changed anyway - there's no rust on the metals tho.

    I'll be kinda sorry if I let this thing go, it's really as good as a guitar can get, incredibly silky to play and sounds nice. I just played Follow the Reaper rhythms on this mainly. Despite the beauty in looks, bright sound and feel, it's purely a metal guitar, all bullshit is stripped off, perfect feel, balance and position when playing on your lap or standing, there's only one pickup and the volume knob, killer metal tone. All this of common knowledge of course, but it really does make other guitars feel kinda meh.

    2:20 - it's surprising how much the wood collects dark dirt.

    Bro, you need to wash your hands better.. lol. I've played mine rigorously for years and don't have any of that happening on the finger board.

    It might be my fingering technique sucked. I mean your fingertips are not supposed to touch the wood.

    I already have a regular RR24 in white, just wanted one of these to compliment it. That and I love the guitar.

    Looks to be in pretty good shape. I'd be willing to pick it up. Shoot me a pm and we'll go from there.
