I bought this ax at ROCK Block in Nashville. I paid $449.00.
The DK-2 has a fast neck, with 24 jumbo frets, that are scalloped at the top of the neck. Very easy to play fast. It also provide a nice variety of sound from the 5-position switch, though I mostly play using the humbuckers.
The floyd stays in tune, and I like the sacle of the body. It's light, and it fits body much better than any Les Paul or Strat I've played.
Tuning the Floyd Rose was a bear, till I'leard how to do it. After that, it was quite easy, reminding me a bit like when I would torque order on an engine block. But it does stay in tune.
I've had it six month so far, and it seems rather rugged. But I'm an amature player.
I think the DK-@ is a great value, and an outstanding guitar. I had played for a several years, but with axes of far less, and sometimes better pedigrees. It seemed to be the one of the best axes arround, esspecially for the money. Throw in Jenna, and I'll pop for the Rhondes model!
I bought the Jackson DK2 from Musicians Friend because I had nothing but 21 fret non locking tremelo Fender Strats and wanted something that could cover a wider range of musical styles in the range of 80's metal to nu-metal. I payed $299.99 as it was on sale.
The neck is flat, thin and fast. It has 24 jumbo frets and a dinky style body. It has a HSS pickup configuration with a 5 way pickup switch. It has a double locking tremelo that stays in tune very well. It is in translucent blue with a flame maple top. The controls are one volume and one tone. The body is alder. The alder body with a flame maple top sounds killer. Top notch quality and made in Japan. Good quality control.
I'm not that happy with dinky Strat style bodies, but it does the job. If this guitar had a full sized body it would be near perfect. I also don't like the middle pickup. It doesn't make sense for what I do. The Ducan Design pickups realy suck. I switched the bridge pickup to a Seymor Duncan Distortion pickup. Now it shreds!
Like I said before, TOP NOTCH. No flaws and the paint brings out the genuine flame maple top very well. Everything was great. The pickups were total crap, but that is all a matter of choice. No dings, scratches, chips, dents or flaws. Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you want a true metal shred guitar, this is a very good choice. People of small stature would benifit better with the dinky body. It isn't too tiny, it's just too tiny for me. If you want higher output, switch pickups. The DK2 is a good palet for upgraded pickups. I do strongly suggest the Seymor Duncan Distortion humbucker. Good Company, good quality, great guitar!
Japanese-made guitar, peulier body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard 24 frets
micro config: double easel, simple and straightforward mid cot set. micro are Duncan Designed
floyd rose type bridge
two knobs one volume to another tonalitbr /> has a great guitar I love it
violin making good bill and they finished well no default, the trestle well maintenance agreements, and I love the handle and its repre-tooth shark. by against the knob are catastrophic, but I 9
The handle and super pleasant and end it falls well in hand, for a beginner's super.l 'access to acute and very good.
the ergonomics of the guitar and it stratabound type and slightly thinner That a Start (I think). I think it is and not heavy in my humble opinion.
we get a good sound condition not to touch o knobs that are a disaster (you Mettes thoroughly and these wholes o After a month he takes a Geulle).
Each microphone has its own distinct and are often are associated with metal and Jackson were not wrong bridge pickup is very well have office. but little cheeks while the other two pickups (not metal). has a versatile guitar.
For now I study the guitar so j'aprend. And I love this guitar because it very well and for beginners and continuing after (not all I want for myself separated the moment and I intend to custody), we get a good range of sounds (well it not compete with the top of its range was on but for this price range these quite honnte). the only major default of this guitar are the knobs, I v'ai the changes the day I change the pickups.
I love rock and metal and its derivative, when I want to have fun sound (my default is for beginners) comes out well no prob, I use an avc line 6 Spider 2 15 watt, and it ideal for aprendre but I quond but the mode of metal and that pushed a little, and are a bit messy due to the size of hp.je do but not for 10 knobs (which I had long soule)
I use it for a little over a year (since I ComenC what). I find it perfect for the beginning then and continuing to (that of j'orait good progress and I was looking meterais own sounds but I would change the pickups, so I have time lol).
of that I was half looking for a guitar I'm half in mind:
- No low-end models often (and I could afford to put 500 to 600 euros in a scratch so I did)
- Rather versatile guitars so I can access multiple style sounds.
I esasayer an epiphone les paul, it was good (I love personal, shape and all) but the sound was not clear asser I can not start with a guitar type rather, it fo jaborde that all styles was logical.
So know my guitar ideal for a good start and progress and no doubt I will remake her choices are worth money.
