I'm getting into 80's rock and modern metal so do you think a Jackson DK2 would be good for me? Does the floyd stay in tune after some abuse?

Yes it does stay in tune, and the guitar is better than most other guitars in the price range. What is your budget, maybe you could get a used Jackson Professional or Charvel, which would be better bang for your buck more likely than not.

that's a good bit of money, maybe get an RR5 or SLSMG/DKMG?

Ahh man, being a lefty Jackson player must suck
Maybe save for a lefty soloist?
Otherwise, the DK2 is still awesome

I'd say that you should save up more and get a US-made Jackson.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Left handed USA Jacksons are hard to come by, which really sucks for lefties. But, there are plenty of DK2L's, and its a solid guitar nonetheless.
