Hello,

I'm planning on buying a new guitar now since I'm starting at a music school. I already have the Jackson RR3 with Floyd Rose and I love it, but since I'm starting at that school I need to have another guitar that I can tune more easily (eb, and D). So I was thinking of either the
Jackson DKMGT ( http://jacksonguitars.com/products/products.php?group=Dinky-Body&page=1&product=2910101803 )
or the DK2T ( http://jacksonguitars.com/products/products.php?group=Dinky-Body&page=1&product=2911006803 )

I like that the DKMGT has EMG's.
I can't decide which of them I'll buy. I want one that feels similar to my RR3 but that doesn't have a Floyd Rose. I mostly play thrash/death metal and 70's rock, and I'm lead guitarist in a thrashband.

What is your opinion?

Thanks.

I don't want another RR guitar, I love them, but I want a different shape.

between those two - dkmgt all the way. the reverse headstock looks boss and it has a carved top.

this versatility nonsense is a myth, learn to use your amp properly.

Both Dinkys are nice, but I like the DK2T...its a more traditional looking Jackson, and the Duncans in there are nicer than what are currently in your RR3. The Jb and Jazz are great pups. In the end though its up to you- do you want great active EMGs or great passive Seymour Duncans. Both should have a wide, thin neck that is similar to your RR3, so feel shouldn't be a problem with either.

Good advice: sell the RR3, and try to score a USA Jackson for around 1200$
Much more fun!

True to a limited point, yet close minded.

I can make a SUV steer in a rally course, but it sure won't be as efficient and versatile as a Evolution VIII, for example. Same thing applies to this. A player makes the EMG's tone, but a set of passive pickups are indeed more versatile since they can dial in more tones without sounding sterile.

i'd go with the dinky with the seymour duncans cause those pick ups kick ass. i wish i had enough money to get a jackson w/o a floyd rose. as much as i love my rr3 that floyd rose is killing me.
#15
Ok, thanks for all the help

But one more question: I see that the RR3 and the DK2T are in the Pro Series, and that the DKMGT is in the MG Series. What is the difference between the two series?
#16
Am I right when I'm saying that the difference is that the MG series has EMG's and the other har Duncans? Is there other differences?
#17
Comes down to what pickups you want. I have a DK2T because I wanted passive pickups and the Crimson Swirl finish (which is no longer offered). The only difference between the MGs and the Pros are the pickups, everything else is the same.
