Does it have to be a jackson? I would definately pass, because that bridge on the DK SUCKS, and the duncan designs arent to great, but for 179 u could definately expect worst. And the JS series is just straight up bad.

I would hold off, save up for a quality guitar......


On the other hand, for 100$ more you can get an Ibanez RG321MH..... Mahogony body, AANJ , Wizard 2 neck, and string-thru.

Try both, along with some other guitars that you would save up for. If you still want them, pick the one you like better.

If he really likes them, there won't be any convincing.

If you're unsure, I really suggest you wait. You can get much, much better guitars. Even with only $300 or so.

Don't make a mistake like I did with my MG. I bought it because it was what they had. I settled for it, when I should have gone for something like a Peavey Valveking.

I'll wait. I have a Fender Strat mexican which im starting to despise. I play rock and it sucks trying to play on that thing.

I would LOVE a new guitar. Been waiting for over a year now. But i guess i'll save up my money and get a better one for around 600. Or i'll get the JS30RR since its starting to get crazy good reviews. Thanks for the help.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good guitar that isn't over 1k dollars that can be use for Rock?

I have a dk2, Im very happy with it, I traded down from a slsmg to a dk2, you can directly swap the bridge for an original floyd to which is what I plan on doing....the trem stays in tune for me anyways...and for duncan designed pickups they are excellent...better then the emg hz's in the slsmg..hope that helps

Let's see...from least to most expensive;

Washburn WI64D - $300
Epiphone Vintage G-400 - $300
Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top - $400
Epiphone Elitist SG - ~$600
Washburn WI66PRO - $650
Washburn Pilsen Idol - $900
Epiphone Elitist Les Paul Custom - $1000

There are also Ibanez and Schecters that are great for under $1000, but I don't know the models off the top of my head.

^ The trem, but besides that nothing.

I dont like their neck joints, not as near as good as an ibanez AANJ.... Lot more fret access with the ibanez.

For an extra 100$, you can get an RG1570 = pwnage.

Threadstarter, im glad you took the advice. If you really want a new guitar, go for the RG321MH if you dont need a trem. Its a 600-700$ guitar, for 280$..... AMAZING guitar for the price!

Like i said before, mahogony body, Wizard 2 neck with NO heel and an AANJ, string-thru......

If you buy one, MAKE SURE its the MH(mahogony) model, which is what i provided in the link.

Is this an old DK2? I'm looking on Jackson's site, Duncan designed pups aren't introduced until the X series, Pro are Seymour Duncan, MG are EMGs...

As someone who checked out a JS30RR for himself..

DO NOT GET IT.
they slapped randys name on it and just threw it ou tthere to make some bucks off chumps.
from a distance/the untrained eye it seems like a great guitar.
but the craftsmanship on 9/10 of them are horrid, as are the pickups.

it gets good reviews because people are chumps. every last one of us. do you not see BC rich which are notoriously bad getting great reviews? marshall MG's?\
someone who just got the guitar and is extremely happy about it will of course go around claiming its the best guitar for its dollar, and plays better than anythign theyve tried. but in all reality, there is probably better.

if you really like it, go for it. but if you want something still in that price range and not so ****ty, take a look at an Ibanez or Epiphone
