Crunchy tone, perfect playability, and heart-stopping looks.
The Jackson DXMG Dinky Electric Guitar has everything a metal player needs. A pair of Jackson's Exclusive EMG HZ high-output humbuckers deliver a hefty, eminently crunchable tone while the deep cutaway in the sculpted alder body lets your fingers maraud all the way up to the 24th fret of tone heaven. And if that's not far enough, you can yank those notes right on up to nirvana with the recessed-cavity, JT580LP double-locking tremolo system. The jet-black paint job and hardware enhance its fabulous looks, highlighted by saw tooth pearloid inlays between the jumbo frets on the bound rosewood neck.
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!

I've had this guitar for about a month and I've been pretty happy with it. I was depressed in the beginning because Floyd Rose bridges are really complicated, but after doing some research on them I've learned how to handle them (only use them if you prefer one tuning because it's kind of a pain adjusting the bridge). When you finally get the Floyd Rose adjusted to your tuning, it really does stay in tune with some wild yanking. Anyway, the neck of this guitar is really something else. VERY FAST, thin neck that I compare to the Ibanez Wizards without a problem. Jumbo frets make it easy to hit all those shouting notes we love to caress. Sharkfin inlays are gorgeous and binding on the neck and headstock give it a real classy feel. Other than one thing I must say that this guitar is really a beauty and a dream to play. However, I was a bit disappointed with these EMG's. Distortion comes in pretty crunchy with little mud, but the output is pretty dry. The sound is fierce, but not very piercing. Tapping also doesn't come in quite as loudly as I'd expect, which disappointed me when I busted into Hammett's big solo in the song "One". Thirdly, palm muting doesn't come in well! I even put in some Zakk Wylde Boomers and it didn't crush that much! It's very similar to the way a Strat sounds when you palm mute. There are a couple high points though. Pinch harmonics really are easy to come by with these things, and it actually plays quite beautifully cleanly with a slightly dark, radiant tone. Anyway, these pickups can be replaced, so that's not too much of a biggie. I'm probably going to drop in a Seymour Duncan and keep one pickup in because of the clean sounds and PH's. Overall, this thing really is a good buy though. You'll definately get your money's worth. It really is a beautiful guitar!Note: Do not buy the Jackson case designed for this guitar! It is very thin plastic with styrofoam-like durafoam padding. Very cheap.

i have owned this guitar for about a year and have been playing for four years. the first thing i did with this guitar was CHANGE THE PICKUPS. the stock was so dry. this guitar sounds great distorted, ehh... so-so when clean. it is EXTREMELY hard for me to lower this guitar so that the action is lower and easy to play on the higher frets. but if it is HEAVY HEAVY DARK metal that you are going for, this is it. i think there is a reason that anthrax and slayer both use this exact guitar.

Ever since i saw Alexi in concert i knew then that jackson guitars kick a**!The DXMG is my first guitar and by far the best. Incredible control, bad a** sound for those metal players , and a great look. You'll never regret owning this guitar, you'll never regret owning a Jackson!!
This guitar is great for metal and Christmas carols. Although people may look at you funny when you are playing Christmas carols on a guitar that looks like a it lives on a diet of death metal, it sounds great for both musical styles. The neck humbucker gives you a great clean sound and sounds good when coil tapped. I put an EMG 81 in the bridge cuz the original emg HZ in the bridge was kinda wimpy and now it has a death metal side and an pretty angel side all at the flick of a switch. The floyd rose bridge stays in tune even after crazy dive bombs and creepy looks from grandmas. I would recommend this guitar to any metal/ Christmas carol player out there.
this guitar is amazing. it has a floyd rose tremolo setup with locking strings, and boy oh boy those EMGs. The only downside about this guitar is that for this price, I would just get a standard stratocaster. You would get a way better deal with a strat then with this thing but if you really want a floyd rose I guess you should just go with this guitar.
The guitar is built for speed and has a really nice feel to it!
I have been playing for 7-8 years, and have been dying to get my hands on a guitar with a floyd rose. I don't understand how people have so much trouble with them. I could see if you are playing a lot of different tunings and whatnot, but if you're playing in one tuning, or if you drop the low e to d or whatever, the floyd is perfect. Anyways, to the guitar, it's a real beauty. The body shape, and paint job are flawless. The neck is definetely pretty amazing. It felt great as soon as I picked it up. While I do like the stock EMG HZ's, I'll probably change out the bridge one too a dimarzio t-zone, for that van halen sound. The stock bridge emghz is fine when you are playing single note solo's and such, but I think with a more midrange and bassy sounding pickup, it will have better palm muting and tapping ability. If any of you are thinking about a pickup for that, the t-zone is perfect. Aside from that small gripe, this guitar is perfect. I'm very happy with it, and LOVE hitting that floating bridge on a wicked looking Jackson.
This is by far the coolest guitar i've ever played, and will never regret buying it. The tremolo is awesome, the gothic look is phenomenal, and the price is beyond low. I would expect to pay a lot more this. This site rules, and jackson is the best guitar company in the world. Always stick to jackson, you'll never regret it.
This Guitar Is Virtually One Of Jackson's Best Creations And At A Good Price Too, I added EMG-81's On This Total Scraemer ANd I Have To Say It IS Ripping. A Must For One WHo Loves Fast Metal
I got this guitar right afther my birthday, It is extreamly easy to play, and it is very clear the pickups are decent, Yes the Floyd Rose is a pain, but when you get it there it sounds great and it stays there...I am very happy with it, the reversed head stock and inlays look really good.
I got a lemon. The locking nut wasn't machined properly and I couldn't lock or unlock the strings because the clamps didn't fit into the base of the locking nut. The guitar came from the factory without the tone knob installed. Aside from that, the thing plays great, very fast and comfortable. The pickups are junk... clean or dirty. I would recommend replacing them, they're muddy and all bass.
This is one amazing guitar! I first played this work of art at a local shop earlier this year. I played for 3 hrs and it seemed to be only minutes; I was addicted to it. Similar guitars with close to the same features, even less features, from other brands can cost much more. So this is one amazing deal. It has the bottomed-out sound of Disturbed as well as the high pitched screams of Metallica. It's the guitar for any type of style and for almost every income. I was comparing this to the ESP KH-202 Kirk Hammet Signature Model and I was actually more pleased with the sound that came from the Jackson. ESP may have a name but this Jackson has the sound, and in the end that's all that counts. So I recommend this to anyone and everyone!!!!
I play everything from metal to jazz, so I need a guitar that can do all that. This guitar certainly delivered, though the factory setup was awful. I did a little work myself and now it plays like a dream. I've had bad experiences with Floyd Rose knockoff's, but this version stays in tune great. I've played for 9 years and this is one of the best guitars I've ever played!
I bought it a month ago and I've been playing it since then....and dude...I love it. If you're looking for a metal guitar, this is it...though the pickups, EMG-HZ is raw for heavy rhythmic metal sound but if you playing leads...better change it to EMG-81/85 or Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz, these pickups could give you both rhythm and lead sound.Other than that, neck's great....smooth, wide and rounded, I used to play Ibanez with Wizard II neck, but I like this Jackson's neck better. Tuning is SO easy, coz the locking trem is great. Always stays in tune. Grab this dude....it's worth it and affordable
Even though the pickups arent what I expected, after 2 months of playing with this guitar I am already tired of it.
This is a great guitar for anyone. i love the one i got for x-mas an havent stoped playing it since. this is a good buy and you should buy one yourself.
I was looking for an axe that had some grind to it. What I got was something that blew my hair back and scared the hell out of me!!! If you like metal and are looking for a guitar then the hunt is over.
When I first got it it had amazing metal crunch and decent clean sound. I got someone to tune it and change the strings but the action was set to high afterwards so I lowered it and now there is no fret buzz perfect clean and metal tone. Also it screams when I use the whammy bar. The neck is super fast like all jacksons and the passive emgs don't need changing cuz they're awesome I reccomend it to anyone who wants a great guitar at a low price
This guitar is an amazing buy for its price. I have had my model customized with boosters etc, but even in its original state it is still a mean machine! If you want to go the whole hog with this model, invest in a set of EMG 81's, an "afterburner" gain kit, or maybe some low/mid/treble boosters to really crank out the power. This guitar is really worth the price you pay so grab one quick!
Awesome! Great sound quality!
Anyone looking for a real metal axe, get this! You must! I adopted mine yesterday and I've been unable to put it down ever since. It sounds great, and it's one of the most comfortable guitars I've ever played on. Definitely worth the time, the money, AND the effort!
I own the Jackson DXMG, and all I can say is wow! It's easy to play, sounds awesome, and the double-locking trem is one of the best features on it. I have played many guitars - and me and my buddies agree the Jackson DXMG is the best!
