If you're looking to spend under 1k I would go with a Jackson. The sound from the bands Death and Suffocation are very different, but pretty much any mid range Jackson will give you the sound ability...

I wouldn't waste the time or money to change anything on the guitar. If you don't like the neck profile and the way the wood resonates then there is absolutely nothing you can do.

Out of curiosity,...

I have pretty small hands and I play mostly Jacksons with at least 12" radius and 25.5" scale length. I prefer the really thin neck profile on my DK1. I'm not sure the fingerboard radius is going to...

I'm in the US. The 7mm would appear to be correct, my wrench/socket goes down to 8mm, of course, which appears to be slightly too large. Thanks for the info!

Jackson truss rod wrench

I purchased a used Jackson KVX10 (maybe 2003 year... not too sure) to have as a decent practice guitar, and also as a guitar wouldn't have to worry about dinging and scuffing bringing here or...

500, roughly 750 USD is way more than I would pay for a Jackson DK2, especially considering I paid 999 USD for my DK1... though I do understand being in the UK makes this much harder for Jacksons...

While they are made in Korea the quality is actually quite good. Mine doesn't have any mistakes, and I really can't complain. For the price they are excellent. I purchased mine used, so it is an...

At least another 50 dollars off the price, if not 100. Depending on if soldering is involved and how much time you can probably expect the repairs to be between 70 and 100 dollars for a tech to...

Given the style of the guitar, and the very early Floyd Rose without fine tuners makes it very early 80's. It looks very similar to the early Kramer V models, maybe a Vanguard. The setup of the...

I don't know why people say this. They are actually the most comfortable guitars to sit down with. Sitting with your leg between the horns puts it in proper classical position.

950 is really good number, that can get you a lot, especially for the used guitar market. If you like Jacksons I would say to hunt ebay/craigslist for a used USA model. It might take a while to find...

I really don't like either. I own a Gibson Explorer, and I don't touch it very much. For me, the mahogany and 24.75 inch scale just doesn't do it. It's an excellent guitar, but I much prefer my...

That's a stunning guitar. I love quilted maple and the color choice is awesome, I love purple. One of my favorite guitars is a stained purple. You need to get some metal clips up for this :)

It's still a relatively cheap guitar. You'd be way better off saving the 200 and putting it towards a much better guitar. Just enjoy your surprise guitar!

It sounds like your string is fretting out because it's too low. You probably just need to raise your bridge a bit.

The deciding factor really is if you want neck thru (soloist) or bolt-on (dinky). And in terms of comparing you really have to compare the USA SL2 to the USA DK1. Both with OFR, dual humbuckers, and...
