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!

  • 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

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.

Amazing Guitar

By Sangin

from Las Vegas, NV

I played this guitar at a local guitar shop, and it really amazed me. I hauled in my big Ibanez TBX150R amp in,sat down, and played it. The EMG 85/81 is a MUST with rock. The distortion was amazingly clean, no buzz what so ever it just blew my mind, and on the clean setting it was acoustic like. The guitar itself is not to light, not to heavy, the neck feels amazing, the sound is crunching and will make you shiver. The only thing is that it's very expensive for what it's made. But worth the cost if you're serious, all and all AMAZING GUITAR! Get it.

A Guitar For The Masses.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This guitar has shocked me among many levels. Just, there are no real words to describe it. I own plenty of Jackson's. From Kelley's to RR's to Dinky's. This is by far one of the best guitars I have to date. I play this guitar straight through a 5150 Peavey head that's hooked with a Behringer 4x12 slant. No pedals needed. Everything about this guitar is amazing. From the action, to the look, to the quality, to the sound. Nothing to me, can really beat this guitar. I really recommend this guitar for everyone to buy. Whether starting out or have been playing for years.

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.

This guitar is so awesome!!!

By newjacksonlover

from Jacksonville, Ohio

I played this guitar at a local music store, and I have to say, I love it! This guitar is beautiful in every way. The EMGs make a beautiful clean sound and handle distortion better than most pickups I've played with. It's very smooth, and has great tone. I'd pick this guitar over any other guitar. This will be my next guitar for sure. I chose this over many Gibson Les Pauls I've played.

More Versatile Than You Would Think

By Zach-ni4hs

from Las Vegas

I just recently acquired this guitar. I love to play all kinds of metal but I have always shied away from what I thought was a strictly metal guitar because I wanted something that would have great clean sounds in addition to screaming metal. I love the cleans on this guitar. You can shape them from very bright and twangy to watery, and even a great jazz tone! I mean it is no hollow body jazz guitar, but its pretty damn good. And the distortion on this guitar is some of the crunchiest, fullest distortion around, great for rhythm and lead. The comfort of this guitar is unbelievable as well. Very light, but solid feeling. The neck is lightning fast. I bought the Transparent Black which is absolutely gorgeous. You will not be disappointed by this guitar.
