OVERVIEW

Tone as sharp as its headstock.

The Jackson DKMGT 2008 model has a sleek, sculpted string-through alder body with a carved top and flamed maple veneer for classic Dinky electric guitar style. EMG 81 humbucker and the bridge and EMG 85 humbucker pickup at the neck crank out crunchy rhythms and soaring leads. It also has a bolt-on rock maple neck with a bound, compound radius rosewood fretboard; MOTO piranha fingerboard inlays; and a string-thru body bridge.

Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

  • Carved alder body
  • Flamed maple veneer
  • Rock maple bolt-on neck
  • Compound-radius, bound rosewood fretboard
  • MOTO piranha fretboard inlays

I have owned this guitar for about a year now and I am still in love with it. I own the transparent red, and I must say, the finish is beautiful. The rosewood fretboard complements the color nicely and is accented by the sharktooth inlays. Overall, this guitar has great looks. The DKMG also excels in playability. I have lowered the action a little and it plays great. The smooth neck allows you to play fast, which is something that I look for when choosing a guitar. My one complaint with respect to playability is the fact that bends may be difficult due to the wider radius of the neck.The EMG's sound fantastic, especially on distortion. Clean can sometimes sound a little dry, but with a tiny bit of gain, it again sounds great. I have only had two minor problems with this guitar that are able to fixed in under a minute. The first is the volume knob has become loose over time. This is solved by removing the knob and tightening the nut. The second problem is that the B string detunes very slightly every now and then. However, I have played a few local shows with it and have not had a single problem due to tunings. This guitar is a great choice for anyone who enjoys playing metal, or really any type of music. I have never preferred another guitar over this one.

EMG 81 bridge humbucker EMG 85 neck humbucker. The neck is sweeet, this thing sounds great through high gain amps and fender style amps, and I have both. This guitar will play any type of music well , molted metel, heavey metal, rock, country. I have all the high end guitars that you don`t want to scratch, this dkmgt will do as well if not better, except for the single coil. A great price for a guitar with its tone. Look at the pickups, the neck, the look, the price....it`s all good

Comfortable

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This was the very first Jackson that I'd played on, played a few more since then, and I can't say that I was disapointed by it's tone quality, it sounded great. The thing that I found most noticable was the extremely thin neck. It was very comfortable, almost too comfortable, and made playing a breeze. I gave a lower rating on the value because I thought this guitar could be a little cheaper, but maybe that's because of the active EMGs. Still a very nice guitar.

Unmatched Versatility

I was once a metal head, so I got this guitar, I loved it. Now I have opened my eyes to other kinds of music and I toned things down a bit. This thing still rips, I play a whole lot of blues, prog rock, indie rock, even bluegrass and alot of other, softer alternatives to rock, this guitar is so versatile. I can get screaming notes whenever I want with little effort and the neck allows me to be in 2 places at once. I use a Vox AC15 Tube amp, I have gotten compliments from my next door neighbors saying I sound like the real deal thanks to this guitar.

A ripping guitar for a good price

By Tony G

from Maine

I went to a music store looking to buy picks and naturally I picked up the first guitar with EMGs that I could find. Aside from the obvious great sound that EMGs always produce, this guitar felt great and was very affordable. When looking for a guitar to buy, I was looking for an Ibanez or ESP, but after feeling the comfort of this guitar, the great sound and the affordable price I couldn't say no. Buy this if you want a ripping guitar for a good price.

get this guitar

By sabbath_man

from northern vermont

I just got this guitar today and I am blown away at it. The action is so awesome making the neck super fast and playable. the EMG's are great for high gain/distortion or for clean tones. Sounds awesome in drop D. Smooth knobs and sleek body looks really cool. Great sustain, and great for shredding. Overall excellent guitar.

BUY THIS!!!

By newjacksonlover

See all my reviews

I played this guitar at my local music shop and it brought tears to my eyes. It had a setup 'cause a lot of people like to play it. When I first started playing it, I kept screwing up because it was sooo smooth and easy to play. The pickups sound better than a good set of Seymours, and that's saying something 'cause I love Seymour Duncan pickups. It's very comfortable because of it's original shape, and it has very unique inlays. Solos sound beyond beautiful on the neck pickup. It's warm and clean. The bridge pickup is crunchy and powerful. I'd chose this guitar over any ESP, which means a lot because ESP is my favorite guitar brand.....well.....it used to be anyway. (but then I tried this) I recommend this to ANYONE for ANY music style. It has an awesome sound on any setting and it even makes crappy amps sound good (I tried it on different amps)Not to mention, the reversed headstock is just plain sexy!
