Okay well, couple of days ago I made a thread about if I should do this.


Well, even though I could spend up to 600 pounds on a guitar, I'm thinking going for a Jackson DK2, I've played and all.

I'm just thinking that would I kick my self about getting it considering my current guitar was a bit more expensive?

I'm currently playing a Fender Telecaster FMT HH Custom through a VOX.

So yeah I'm still not sure If I'm making the right choice. Or even if the Jackson is an upgrade.


Thank you UG'ers!

Also will the Jackson be an upgrade downgrade or a nograde?

Are you selling the tele to get the jackson?
Save up and get both. They are completely different guitars.

Through a Vox what?



I currenctly cannot remember the name, since it's not on me rightnow, but I use that to play live

personally, even if the tele cost more I would consider the jackson an upgrade. Im just not a fan of teles, at least the way my friends use them, which is for modern country. It really depends what you want to play. I wouldnt say the Jackson is limited to metal and rock, but that is more what it is geared to.

Well, if you're not selling one to get the other, then it's not an upgrade or downgrade.
It's just a 2nd guitar, completely diferrent from your other guitar.

It's always a good idea to have more than one guitar.
They really are like shoes, different one for different moods.

i voted nograde, but i would still buy it. it's a good guitar and it's aimed to other styles of music. and then you also have 2 guitars for alternate tunings as well

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

Just to let you know, I play pretty much from Metallica to Slayer to Trivium to Gary Moore to Eric Clapton to Fleetwood Mac.

But If i was to purchase the Jackson would I be kicking my self about that i could of got a better build one?

I don't have a problem with that, I have one at home anyways.

So you think I should go for the Jackson? or am I rushing into things?

If you like it, and can afford it, get it.
Don't get it or not get it because some people on the forum said so.
It's up to you.

But don't compare it to your current guitar. They are completely different guitars.

As far as the basics go, I've heard good about the DK2.
I think it would be worth the $$.
