Basically I am looking to buy either a Jackson DK2 or the DK2M,

i play mostly metal but alot of alternative things such as classical and pop/punk

i want to be able to buy a versatile guitar with a trem so i can use this op experiment with different styles yada yada yaaaa...

i'm happy with my amp and dont wish to change, just to save some of you suggesting it, and i do want one of these guitars, i've plyed them and thier equals such as ibanez and some LTD's but i prefer the look and feel of these guitars...

but as reviews are quite vaired or clearly written by 12 year olds who have just bought their wet dream i was interested in seeing if any one here has had any experience with these guitars or just jacksons in general.

any one got anything i might want to know before i buy one at the end of next month for my birthday?

i mean are the trems ok, build quality all that kinda stuff...

thanks in advance... if no one replies and i get one and it falls apart i'm blaming you guys

I was really considering this guitar for a while , it's great I played one before I moved, Plays great Feels good to play,didnt have any problems with the trem, Fretboard was comfortable to play , The only thing i Would say is to maybe switch the Seymour duncans with active emg's..
Good buy though

Isnt the only difference rly the fretboard? And even so, ur part of the I dont need a trem to be awesome club??? Rly the only thing trems are good for is if u do crazy squeals or suff like that. which, might i add, are all over modern metal music. And if u want versatility, i suggest a Strat or a Les Paul. two of the most versatile guitars ever made, especially the Strat.

yeah i'm aware i'm a meber of that club thanks... les pauls really aint that versatile, i need a guitar with a floyd for my A level music couse, my explorer cant keep up...

the main difference is that the DK2 has HSS whilst the DK2M is HH and has the maple fret board so i was thinking that if i can get a white one i'll go for the DK2...

thanks so far guys but has anyone had or got some experience with one of these guitars

^?
Les Paul for single coil sounds, Strat for humbucker sounds?
I wouldn't call them THAT versatile. ^^"

i have been playing a friends dk2 the only litle problem is the tremolo it quite unstable with tuning (licenced floyd) but apart from that i find it a nice comfortable guitar to play
cant think of anything to put here.........

I own the DK2M and the tremolo is wonderful for a licensed Floyd Rose... never goes out of tune, even with heavy strings and lots of abuse.

Yup, same here, but I own the DK2, I've played both though. The biggest difference between them is the maple fretboard and the H/H setup on the DK2M as opposed to the rosewood fretboard and the H/S/S setup on the DK2.
But whichever you get, dont settle with the Duncan Designed pickups, make sure its got the real Seymore Duncans in it.
