DXMG Dinky Electric Guitar

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.
This guitar is great for live performances and can be used in certain studio situations when micing up this guitar i recomend useing two microphones to get a supper fat sound as oposed to the flat 2d sound you may get from haveing passive pickups trying to recreate the sound of active pickups.
The Floyd Rose Can let it down a bit but that just may be becuase i find Floyd Roses abit tedious and time consuming but over all this jackson is lovely to play and can be used in a varity of genras.
the build quality is verry nice providing a light enough body to preform with and a stable enough build quality to alow for a fantastic tone
Again the Jackson Floyd Rose lets the guitar down and changing the pickups is not at all a bad idea as the EMG Hz's can sound a bit 2D
I have been playing guitar for 7 years and I have never played ANYTHING like this. Great guitar, great pricing.
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 guitar is cool because its made in japan as opposed to taiwan or china and it kinda looks like its made in japan. playability is great but it probably cant handle a few drops like a strat can. floyd rose is kinda a pain but i wanted at least one keeper guitar with one! jackson been around a long time has good rep for quality products that shred.
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 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
I've had mine since Christmas of 2006, and its been my main axe ever since. I play Indie Rock (think Interpol or Arctic Monkeys) and Tech/Brutal Death Metal (think Decrepit Birth or Nile), so this guitar needs to respond well to all extremes of playing. It does so with flying colors! Its been through a number of tuning/string gauge changes, even though I was highly unqualified to execute these changes on my own (when I first started) and this guitar hung right with them, no problems to this day. I also own an Ibanez RG, Fender Strat, Epiphone Dot, Epiphone 135, and the neck on this guitar is by far my favorite, even over the Ibanez. If you've never played on a Jackson Compound Radius neck, you should at least try it out. The floating bridge has a small learning curve if you've never had one before, but once you get the hang of them, they're very easy to use. This guitar hardly ever goes out of tune, unless the temperature change is very extreme. The pickups are decent, I eventually switched them out, as most people do over time. To put it short, check this guitar out whenever you can. Its very well made, great quality of parts (especially the neck/frets/fretwire/fret markers/binding, etc.); I really can't find anything I don't like about this guitar, even after 5 years of constant playing and abuse. Jackson have certainly gained a fan for life!
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!
I purchashed mine used and paid less than a basic Ibanez. This is my 2nd Jackson and the sound thru my Vox is deadly, even with the original EMG's. The action is faster than anything I have ever played. I have Les Paul's, Strats and 2 Les Paul Jrs and this guitar easily became my goto axe. The tremelo is simple and the jumbo frets speeded up my play in 10 seconds. I can't recommend a better guitar for the buck, and I've played them all. The only guitar better than this one, in my opinon would be the much more expensive Randy Rhoads product. Enjoy!
