Is the Jackson Randy Rhoads Minion JS1X a kids guitar? Well it can be, but it does have to be.
The RR Minion is a 3/4 scale ‘mini’ Jackson Randy Rhoads model guitar that comes in a ton of awesome bright colors for only $169! In this video I go over it’s pros and cons, as well as share a demo song I made with the guitar! I hope you enjoy it and find it useful!

I picked up one of these G1ONs a while back for recording and playing at home. The price was good so I thought I’d give it a shot. The amp models in these are incredible and sound very realistic. For my home recording needs it’s perfect. I would much rather use a pedal with modeling than have to setup an amp and microphones just to record guitar. I know some people think that’s the only way to go, but I have to respectfully disagree. I honestly think modeled tones work better for recording, especially when recording at home.
The looper feature was a really nice surprise. I actually didn’t even know it had that when I ordered it. The looper function is pretty basic however and there’s no way to store loops for recalling at a later time. All of the reverbs and other fx are very nice sounding, and for the home recording enthusiast, it is a great way to have a ton of guitar tones at a tiny cost.
In this video I unbox, test, and review the Cloud Chorus by Sonicake. It’s a small footprint, true bypass, chorus pedal that sounds pretty great! Pick up one of these for yourself here. For about $50, Sonicake makes an extremely high quality guitar fx pedal. It’s built in a high quality metal box, features a metal toggle switch for intensity, level and depth controls, as well as a big knob for speed.
Overall I think the pedal is very nice. It has a nice vintage type tone and can go from subtle to crazily intense chorus. Watch the video above for a sound test. I look forward to more good stuff from this Sonicake!
I’ve been playing guitar since I was 10 years old, and I’ve played and owned many guitars in my life. I currently play guitar in a surf rock band where I am playing a lot of leads and using a tremolo on a regular basis. I am also a home recording artist and commercial music producer who records a lot of different styles and sounds. So it may come as a surprise to you that I am using a $149 Ibanez GRX20 as my main, or really ONLY guitar.
I picked one of these up because the price was right and I wanted something with two pickups and a tremolo. After receiving it, it quickly became my go-to axe for everything. The dual humbucker pickup and 3 way switch / tone volume controls make it very versatile. Giving you options for hard rock crunch, mellow jazzy warm tones, screaming metal lead, and even 60s reverb saturated surf sounds!
The feel is excellent and has a very nice build quality far above it’s price range. I absolutely love the neck and I honestly believe this guitar has made me a better guitarist because it seems to fit my playing style so well. I’ve wailed on the tremolo for hours at a time, barely having to retune and the look of it is downright sexy. I’m considering picking up a second one just because I love it so much.
