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 love mine. she is an 1196 japanese model, with emg81-85 pickups.
- Was this a gift?:
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!
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 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!
The Good:I very much like this guitar. It was the first Jackson guitar that I ever played. I was very much impressed with the quality and features of it. The fretboard is really fast and of good quality and the action can be set really low. I never had an issue with the tremelo and found it to require minimal tuning over the course of a couple years even with extended wammy use. The EMG pick ups were fine for metal but are not overly hot. The Bad:I bought it used from a friend. While the neck is fantastic I never really cared for the shape of the body. I dont think it has the upper fret access of a say a Dean ML or some of the V's out there. I also dont care for the bolt on neck as it lets out a little creak or pop when you really get into the wammy. Also as stated above the pick ups are really nothing special except they say EMG on them.But overall, if you find the body style comfortable to play this would be a great general metal guitar that you could count on to last and last.
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!
Good quality guitar for the price, you get what you pay for. Neck is thin and very comfortable, EMG-HZ's sound very nice. The licensed tremolo is decent, but the spot where you screw on the whammy bar is garbage. Any time you move the whammy bar it comes unscrewed a little and gives a lot of unwanted rattling when using the tremolo. The metal bar that locks the strings at the headstock was screwed in slightly off center, causing all the strings to be off center as well.
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 was my second guitar, and ill tell you its an amazing guitar. The floyd rose keeps it from never going out of tune and the neck is just amazing, giving you tons of room to maneuver. Great guitar for all styles.
I've owned this guitar for about a month and I've been playing guitar for about 20 years. I am pleased with the quality and how easy it is to play. One of the main things I can recommend is upgrading the pick ups. This guitar can easily sound like a higher end model. But it's up to the indvisuals preference. The EMG's that are in there are great but if but after a while, hearing my other guitar(LP) I'm thinking about upgrading. Also I wish there were better controls for the pick ups. I seems like you can't cut out one or the other. Anyway it's a good guitar for a novice guitarist and I enjoy playing it.
Okay, so I have been playing this guitar for a little over 3 years and it is pretty nice. The neck is very thin and very playable for metal (Iprefer a thicker Les Paulish neck). The frets are even and don't get in the way while sliding etc. The stock EMG-HZ H3 are pretty average. Swapped them out for EMG HZ H4's and they sound fantastic. Tonewise it stands up just fine with my Schecter tempest custom that I have sunk about $850-$900 into. I would like more knobs so I could use the neck pickup as a killswitch or something. Not a lot of pickup noise, running through any pedal with a noise gate there will be no hum at all. The shielding job is pretty mediocre but that doesn't matter as there isn't a lot of hum.Keeping in mind that the bridge is Floyde Rose LICENSED, not ORIGINAL. The Floyde rose is okay, doesn't hold a tune that great, but the micro adjusters will keep you in tune long enough that you only have to actually undo the locking nut about once a month or so to tune it.as far as harmonic response goes, stock this guitar is pretty tough to get those beautiful divebombs, pullups, and pinch harmonics to sound right, but the EMG-HZ H4 pickups solved that problem.For anyone who has never owned a guitar with a floyde rose on it, I would suggest playing around with one first and deciding if it's worth it. Once you need to change strings or dare I say change string thickness being a floyde rose owner becomes the worst thing ever.Don't get me wrong I love this guitar. I just want you buyers to know what you are paying for. I know I will never sell my Dinky DXMG.
