Picked up this guitar at Haight Ashbury Music Center (their Sunnyvale, CA store) last week. Plays great. Good action and hardware, but what makes it different from my other guitars is that it comes from the factory with the "Sustainiac" active pickup at the neck.

My new DK2S Plays great. Good action and hardware, and it comes from the factory with the "Sustainiac" pickup at then neck. This is a very cool gadget! Creates awesome controlled harmonics/feedback on demand.

The only problem with mine is that it is defective and needs warranty work. When the sustain mode on the Sustainiac pickup is disengaged, what should be a clean sounding guitar tone sounds slightly overdriven and staticy. This is likely the preamp built into the curcuitboard. I guess the more technology a guitar has them more stuff there is to go wrong with it. I'm really looking forward to playing this thing really loud one its repaired.

All in all very good construction, with the exception of the electronics defect.
