« Hardtail version of the DKMG »

Publié le 06/24/11 à 05:56
This Jackson has the following specs:

Alder body
Bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and 24 jumbo frets
Unique piranha inlays
EMG pickups
A hard tail bridge
One volume, one tone and a three way switch

UTILIZATION

To be fair, I'm not a huge fan of hard tail bridges. The angle is not something I'm used to considering I played floyded guitars for most of my career. I also prefer the feel of a floyd as they have a bit of give in them when you start bending. That said, this guitar is pretty decent. The fretwork wasn't bad, but it could have been better. For the price point, it's to be expected. The neck joint isn't too bad on this, but there are better ones out there. The overall hardware is decent, but there are a few things I'd change such as the nut and the tuners.

SOUNDS

The guitar sounded pretty good. In fact, it was more resonant than the floyded DKMG that I played. It's a solid metal guitar with a really good pickup configuration. The EMG 81 in the bridge gives it a very nice bite. This allows you to cut through a ver dense mix without a problem, and it's super tight, too. The EMG 85 gives an awesome tone for those fat and thick solo lead lines. Legato is super easy with these pickups, and they work awesome for metal. If you get a chance, try the 18V mod on them as they really help open them up.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a decent Jackson with a hardtail bridge that doesn't break the bank, check out this guitar. It's a solid performer, and it is pretty resonant. Be sure to play a few as some of the fretwork on a few of the models in the store was a bit iffy. About the only rival in its price point would be some sort of LTD, which I find are equally as good.
