Well I need a new guitar since I have been playing my vintage sg for around 4 years. Ive been searching around for a new guitar and fell in love with the Jackson DK2M Dinky, snow white: http://www.jacksonguitars.com/products/specSheet.php?product=2911005503

Has anyone had any experience with this guitar series and would recommend it?

Are there any other guitars you would recommend which have the same strat shape and floyd rose?


thanks!

They are very nice guitars. Mine is inferno red. The neck will be thinner than your SG. You might wanna try one out to see if you like it first. Also you might look at a good used Ibanez RG570 or a new RG1570. Depends on how you like your necks.

Great guitar overall, great fast neck and the pain on the body just doesn't seem to chip even though i knock the shit out of it by accident. The pups are ideal for metal right through to blues and great cleans for the price too.

its a great guitar, just like what everyone else is saying.
but, you have a vintage SG, you should probably get a nicer amp for it!!!


I agree that I need a new amp but I don't plan to be in a band yet or perform yet so I'll get a new amp in the future. Besides I can produce some nice tones from the amp and the pedals I own, its just not that powerful. Cheers anyway.

i tried it, was quite nice. i'd prefer an ibanez rg1570, but that might be a bit more money (and you may not like it as much, anyway)...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I think for what more that Ibanez costs though, you could retrofit a new trem if it bothers you that much, and new pots and switches and still come out ahead due to the Duncan pups. If the Jackson is what you like, go for it!

^ yeah, i mean if you prefer the jackson, go for it. i think the ibanez is about £100 more here, while an OFR is about £150 or so, so you wouldn't be ahead, but certainly the difference in price would eat quite a bit into that trem budget. also it assumes you like the stock duncans.

cos it's not that great. it's not as bad as the really cheap licensed ones, but it's not as responsive or generally as good as an OFR, schaller, gotoh or similarly good licensed floyd...

Great guitar, I wouldn't worry about the trem, Jacksons LFRs are regarded as some of the best.

What was said about the trems is true, the Jackson Licenced Floyd Rose trems are of reputedly good quality, second only to OFR, gotoh and schaller FR's (ie expensive ones).

If anything were to go wrong with your trem (ie, knife edge worn away due to overuse and less-than-optimal materials used in production) you could always upgrade to one of the aforementioned brandname trems anyway at a reasonable price (~$250 USD i'd think), though if anything funny happened within the warranty period it's a new axe for you!

The Seymour Duncan's in this baby made me want to get it as well, and the maple neck is a good choice for variety as it produces a sharper tone and looks completely different (love those ebony sharkfin inlays, they really set it apart). Also the Alder body will contrast well with your mahogany SG as the mahogany is warmer, but the alder is a heavier-sounding wood (think heavy metal, heavy rock) due to density. But I have to mention, a solid colour will both contrast well with your Vintage SG as well as make you realise why it is you cherish that thing like you do (its welcoming woodgrain texture).

But great choice of guitar - was on my list for awhile too, but i'm virtually Schecter only these days - give em a look if you like a slightly thicker neck than the SG you have, as they have great quality guitars at crazy prices and their quality on the lower and mid-range models is meant to be the same as their high-range models. Although being a mid-range Jackson, I don't doubt this guitar will last, and the black hardware and black OFR and SD pickups with unique maple f/board nearly sell me by themselves, personally.
