After saving up for a month or so I've finally got a new guitar at a awesome price.




Not a Schecter(<3)












Jackson Pro Series DK2M Dinky<3 Found it for $270. Missing the tremolo bar and a string clamp with a really wore out 5th fret.

Review

Features:
Alder body
Rock maple bolt-on neck
Bound rosewood compound-radius fingerboard
24 frets
25-1/2" scale
1-11/16" nut
Matching headstock
Jackson-licensed Floyd Rose low-profile double locking trem
Sharkfin inlays
Binding binding
Seymour Duncan JB TB4 humbucker (bridge)
Seymour Duncan Jazz SH2N humbucker (neck)
Black hardware

Pros:
I love the whole super-strat shape. Amazing high fret access and slim neck. On my LTD I had alot of trouble playing frets 17-22, but on this it's just as easy as playing on the lower frets. The SD JB and Jazz sounds amazing. The Maple headstock/fretboard/neck combined with the black binding/inlays is simply beautiful(I have a maple neck/fretboard fetish).


Cons:
The Floyd Rose is sorta annoying. Put brand new Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkys on it after I cleaned it up and it was alot more work than I'm use to. But over time I think I'll get use to it.


Overall verdict: This is a fantastic guitar compared to my ESP LTD M-53. Though it is missing a string clamp(I have a temp replacement), tremolo bar and a really worn out 5th fret I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase. Especially since it was only $270<3

Wait, so you got a Jackson that came in a Schecter box?

I must've missed something along the way. .

Happy NGD btw.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

Already feared it's a Schecter.

Not much of Jackson fan myself, but white guitar + maple neck looks really nice.

HNGD!

The Schecter box confused the hell out of me... haha

That's a damn nice guitar though. I'm going to be buying a Jackson DK2T here in a few days. I'm so excited!

Nice guitar!

I've always wondered; is the necks on those finished in gloss or satin, or are they just oiled?

How you know you have too many guitars...
