well i got about 3 yrs experience, am in a band, and the only good guitar i have is an epiphone explorer. im looking for something that can enable amazing shreds which i am fond of, but will really back off when i need it too, for the more melodic leads and some clean tones.... i was thinking about a jackson dkmg dinky, but im starting to have 2nd thoughts... and ive grown fond of maple wood necks and 24 frets, so taht would be nice as welll.

if anyone can help, and can tell me about how the dinky sounds, please dont hesitate to answer.

Why is it that people have to have a Jackson or an Ibanez to "shred"? Do they have like some magical "shred" power or something?


Just curious....

Well the Ibanez's with Wizard necks are of course thinner and therefore slightly easier to shred on.

But overall i would not expect a magical solution that turns you into Vai.
