Jackson: DK2 Dinky

Purchased from: Larrys Music

Sound — 8
Suits my style well (heavy metal), sounds decent on my Marshall MG-100FX, needs new pickups, not too much buzz. Needs some work on the pickups. It is very versatile.

Overall Impression — 10
It can be fitted to just about any style of playing and it should last a long long time. If it were stolen I wouldn't hesistate to get another one, maybe just a different color. I love everything about it except the pickups are cheap and if you get one I suggest you got the extra mile to get new ones. I tried out multiple guitars and this one came on top by far. The only thing I wish it had would be a real floyd and maybe some realy duncan pickups.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Definitely sturdy enough to withstand live playing, hardware is nice, finish seems fine so far, strap buttons are solidly fastened and I will definitely use it for gigging...but always have a back up.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Action is perfect for me, had to adjust pickups because they were too close to the strings when I would use the trem it would it them, everything else is flawless and has beautiful finish on it.
