Overall it is a great guitar. Impressed with how well it stays in tune and the quality of the gig bag that came with it.
A couple complaints: I ordered the guitar in black, it came in gun metal grey even though it said blk on the box. Also the action was way to high. This guitar should have been ready to shred right out of the box. No manual came with this guitar. My Epiphone Les Paul Standard came packaged much nicer than this guitar along with a manual. All in all though I would highly recommend this guitar and love it.
There is plenty of room on the fret board and the enough frets to make any shredder happy. The stock EMG pick ups sounds great, even clean. The shark fin position markers are very classy and overall the guitar is just built for metal. The floyd rose licensed tremelo is great as well.
So far I haven't had any problems. This guitar is flawless. I had an ESP KH 202 which is a lemon compared to this. Jackson equals quality. Love it. What impresses me the most about this guitar is how well it stays in tune. Everyone knows having a floyd rose can be a pain when it comes to turning and putting strings on. I was amazed at how quickly it tuned up and when i was done playing an hour later it was still in tune. I have had a Charvel and an ESP guitar before with floyd rose tremelo systems and they did not stay in tune or were as easy to tune as the DXMG.
This is a lot to spend on a guitar especially with the economy being in shambles but I can't complain. Anything thing that I was very impressed with is the Jackson gig bag that came with the guitar. I was expecting something cheesy like wrappying your guitar in a piece of saran wrap. Not so. The Jackson gig bag is very high quality and impressive. It's so good, I'm going to hold off on getting a hard shell case for now. I won't change cases unless I start playing out.
I picked up this guitar used, having no previous experience with Jackson. It ended up being well worth the money. As a guitar teacher, I need a reliable axe that I can depend on. This guitar is just that. It stays in tune for months on end. Usually I only have to adjust with the fine tuners. I use a Peterson strobe tuner too, so that is saying a lot! I have owned Ibanez, LTD, etc. But they haven't had quite the tuning stability this guitar does. Those who aren't used to a Floyd Rose trem. may have problems getting it adjusted or doing string changes. Take it to a professional...EMG passive pickups provide lots of metal bite. Could be upgraded to actives for even more. I like the fast thin neck too which is somewhat similar to Ibanez Wizard necks in my opinion. Very pleased with this guitar!
This is my 3rd guitar. And 1st one to have a Floyd. This guitar simply kills. I love it, stays in tune pretty well with a fair price. I recommend this guitar for experienced and up. It's really great!!
I have been playing guitar for 7 years and I have never played ANYTHING like this. Great guitar, great pricing.
I received the guitar in perfect condition and free of defects in materials and workmanship. Aside from stretching the strings and tuning, it was ready to play out of the box. I only had to make a minor truss rod and bridge height adjustment for my preferences. The guitar comes with the H-3 passive pups and are pretty good for all purpose playing, however, they are not like the active 81 pup. If you want that kind of output get the one with the 81/85 pups. I swaped out the H-3 in the bridge for an H-4, which has a little less mids, a little more low end, and a little more output so now it sounds more to my liking. Changing the factory strings is mandatory. The neck is fast, the body and all the hardware is of good quality. The trem returns to pitch reliably and it is a nice sounding guitar, very playable and user friendly. I highly recommend it. Price and quality are spot on.
this guitar is great. i've owned it for about 6 months now and it is wonderful. The jumbo frets make it easy to play and the emg's are awesome. The only problem i've encountered with it is the tuning. this is my first time owning a guitar with a floyd rose and it usually takes me about half an hour to tune. but other than that, buy this guitar , its great.
I have had this guitar for about 3 years now. It has a fast, easy playing neck. It is thin and flat, similar to some Ibanez models. I really like the large shark fin inlays! The floyd rose trem works smoothly, and stays in perfect tune, which hasn't been the case with other guitars I have owned. EMG passive pickups are great for metal, could be upgraded for extra chunk. Overall I am really happy with this guitar!
My Friend Got This Guitar For Chirstams and Itsworth The PriceI Could Sweep Pick On It Like It Was NothingI Plan On Getting This Guitar now It Sounds Goodthe Floyd Rose Just Makes It Even Better It BarlyComes Out Of Tune I Bored It Because My Picece Of Crap Ibanez Went Out So I Used His Guitar and I Dont Think I Have Ever Had That Much Power Plyin Metal
I have had this guitar for a year now, and I can't see why you would ever need to buy a better guitar. I got this for $350 on sale, but the price increase still makes it worth it. This was my first Floyd Rose guitar, and yes it was a bit confusing to set up, but I learned how to use it.Im one of those people who hasn't upgraded to EMG 81/85s yet, but I still think this guitar sounds fine with the passive pickups, from using both the bridge and neck pickups the same amount.The only con to this guitar is that I have to pay $40 for the local guitar shop to string this guitar, because of the difficulty the floyd rose poses, but i only restring it 2-3 times a year. Overall, i'd start with this guitar if you want a versatile guitar with a Floyd Rose, if you do decide to upgrade pickups later on, that's completely up to you
The Jackson DXMG Dinky is the ultimate metal guitar. As my second guitar, it blew my strat knock-off away. The Floyd Rose Tremolo system never lets me down with Dime squeals!
