General What is your overall opinion of this product? The black w/ maple neck is what I have. Overall a good axe. Very fast action on the neck. Only noticed two things about this guitar that were a bit disappointing: 1 - the frets at the edge of both side of the neck are very rough and cut up your hand. I will have my guitar repair dude fix this. 2 - the 5 way switch is supposed to split the pickups to single coil. If this is splitting the coil in position 2 & 4 I really cant tell. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The frets could have been more refined. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Superfast neck. Well balanced on a strap. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The SD's are decent. Still unsure if I will change these. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The matte black is very cool. Flawless finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Value for $ on this axe is just a bit high due to the additional work the frets need. Playability How was the action out of the box? Fantastic. Plays great.
This Guitar Rocks!!

General Your general opinion of this product. In the shadow of the MIJ Jackson DK2M and Pro Series lies the MIM Jackson DK2M. Does it meet the lofty expectations of Jackson's previous best bargain for shred standards? Yes, and exceeds it. I know heresy, but truth is truth. This guitar is amazing. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Excellent craftsmanship and quality right out the gate. There were some rumblings about the 3 bolt neck joint, but it feels solid and the new heel cut away literally makes me feel like upper fret access is in the palm of my hand. I expect no quality issues currently or over time. The only problem that I've seen with this OFR-2000 trem is that the springs seem potentially weaker. When I'm doing Drop C tuning with 12-48 gauge strings, I needed to add a fourth spring which I haven't had to do on any of my OFRs, specials or older Jackson branded FR Pros trems. Not a huge deal, but they should come with heavier springs or additional ones from the factory. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I've had guitars in the past with the JB/59 set and they never lasted long. Somewhere between the extra beasty-ness of the bolt on, the maple neck, alder body, these pickups work better than expected. I'm not sold on these passives in general, but they do work here. Time will tell on that one. Alder/maple runs brighter and snappier, especially with the maple fretboard, but this guitar still has enough resonance to handle heavy riffage with the shred. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I went with the silverburst. It's almost sexual how amazing it looks in photo and in person. Maple board, black binding, white logo, black hardware with the silver burst was a well planned move on Jackson's part. As an active PUP guy, zebra patterns are rarely in my world, but here they fit the bill perfectly. If I can't get piranha inlays, I'll take offset dots over sharkfins. So this is a winner for me. Additional qualms for Jackson: Silverburst and black finishes look amazing, but why on earth did they put a rosewood fretboard on the white finish? Idiotic move. I think they've heard this from nearly everyone. If the white model had a maple board I probably would own two of these instead of one. The black finish is beckoning as well, but the white would've been over the top GAS inducing.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made only had it for a month now but its perfect, extremely happy with this guitar! General Your general opinion of this product. I have several other guitars that i also love, but this one really stands out for me. I love this thing! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It sounds just fine, but i'm sure some better pickups would sound great in this beast. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Flawless, not one blemish or imperfection anywhere on it.
