Well it's that time of year again, and I have a max of 450 pounds to spend on a new guitar for christmas. I play mostly metal and hard rock. I came across this guitar whilst scrolling through GAK:


Is this a good guitar to go with? Or are there any other better guitars in the price range (without a floating tremolo, I already have a guitar with one, and it's way too much hassle!)

Hardtail Jackson DKMG, far better than that Dean imo

Could you tell me why you think it's better? What's better about it? And I'm not that great a fan of active pickups
^ The DKMGT is Japanese made which means you're most likely to come across a well made DKMGT as opposed to a shoddy one. The quality of craftmanship is pretty high. On the other hand, I am not sure about the Dean.... although I suspect that model is made in Korea. Just a hunch. Aso, if you don't like actives, I suppose you could sell the EMG's to replace them with some passives, but that would be alot of work.

Check out:

- Ibanez SZ520FM
-Washburn X50PRO (Has Duncan's already equipped!)
