hehe, ill pass on RJ stuff...resell value is low, difficult to sell off afterwards.. financial stand point.. medyo mulat na ako kahit paano how the guitar game works... better place money on items that holds their value well overtime.

Im also curious with the bacchus collaboration... though I hear that according to freetrade zone agreement on which the factory is in... bawal magbenta ng products locally..kaya puro exports lang dapat output nila.

Saw their professional series in person, typical OEM from shandong or indonesia... hyped up a bit with some FB marketing with cool pics.. the silk screening of the RJ logos are pretty cheapo looking..

especially at the truss rod cover...the rj masturbating man logo had shadowing (similar to spray painting)..its obviously rebadged stuff..I hear from harley benton...probably same factory...

they also had a FB boo boo..by posting a hastily made ad of their model vs the ESP one..but was done so terribly and bad Photoshop.

seriously, I dont mind the OEM and rebadging and all.. its a guitar business after all..they need to earn money... and I dont really care much any more for all that 90s pinoy pride battle cry RJ guitars are primaraly known for.

I suggest just fix their logo and branding and it will be all good... kids today are quite informed and discerning and they have access to lots of guitars and products here and abroad.. for sure to them RJ stuff is simply their version of RAON/STA MESA shops in a MALL.

I think there some Philmusic members who did their adver/marketing thesis on the RJ brand..theres a thread here..interesting to check it out

Low resale value ? That's actually a boon if you buy second hand hahehehe.

I have 3 in the armory. Never letting go. My sweat dripped on those to make them better. They could use some work right out of the store (like proper fretwork and setup) but once done, they will serve you faithfully for years and in some instances will kick the ass off expensive, branded guitars.

Di ba Marco, your bassist at the purple chickens during the Hazy nights days was using an RJ Musicman bass ?

But thats like saying the RJ greats only beats the dogs of the expensive branded guitars... heh heh.  Eh paano na kung magandang tunog na expensive branded guitar?  Ang layo sa pinaka manganda ng RJ.  Just putting things into context.

don't really cared if RJ is the brand, I would love to promote those guitars and I grew up playing with them even had a telly before 2007 version. But of course you can bring it to someone who can set the guitar up and it will do just fine. Always have a secondary guitar that has a greater value.

old models? seems similar to the old-school-pancake-method of body construction, meron ako nakadaupang-palad na 70s na RJ strat-type guitar, ganda ng sustain pero sobrang bigat nga lang, at wala sa gitna ang truss rod, kitang-kita agad eh, lamang sa side ng 4th string

May nabasa ako na post sa Facebook group. Pumasok daw sya sa RJ sa SM north para magtry ng acoustic. Sabi daw ng salesman "Wag kayong bibili ng acoustic dito. Tunog kahon mga acoustic namin!" Hahahahahhaha
