The Jackson DK2T Dinky Electric Guitar is powered by a Seymour Duncan JB TB4 humbucker (bridge) and a Seymour Duncan Jazz SH2N humbucker (neck) mounted on a sleek alder body for plenty of warm, chunky tone. The rock maple neck sports a bound compound-radius maple fretboard. A scalloped heel means uninhibited access to the upper frets, while the JT390 adjustable bridge with string-through-body provides solid performance and tone.
Jackson's compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut (12") for easy chording and flattens out (16") as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

This is guitar has the most comfortable neck that I have played. I can not play anything but Jackson anymore with the same comfort. It is thin, wide and compound radius is a breeze to play on. Neck and body joint has a deep contour and it gives it a neck through like feeling. Don't miss it.
I've always been a player that prefers a nice metal guitar with Floyd Rose, doing all the divebombs and squeals that I can to make my music sound better..... This guitar sounds so awesome that you don't need that stuff!!! Since buying this guitar, I have really had to be more creative and I don't need the Floyd Rose to make good music..... and this pickup combination is GREAT!!! A lot of guitars come stock with mediocre pickups... not this one!! I can easily hit the highs for solos with the JB, and for rhythms and blues gigs I can turn on the Jazz!!! Definitely buy this guitar, or any other Jackson with this pickup config if you need a Floyd Rose.
I've owned several $1500-$2000 guitars and have been playing for almost 20 years. Among those were Wolfgangs, Jems, JS', RG, and I've even owned and SLSMG. This guitar is a huge bang for the buck and makes a great gigging guitar. The story: In my constant fit of GAS, I sold the 2 guitars I was regularly gigging with (an RG 20th Anniversary and Wasburn WT-100 Tele), with the intent of purchasing an EB roasted maple JP/piezo. Our band was taking the month of December off, so I was ok not having a guitar for a bit. Well, that would have been fine if we actually took the month off - next thing I new, we had a pretty high profile last minute gig and I didn't have a guitar! Anyway, our rhythm player (who regularly plays a LP Standard) had purchased a black DK2T as a backup and told me to use it. Having owned an SLSMG, I figured I'd be comfortable with the neck. This guitar has to be one of the best bangs for the buck in a fixed bridge guitar out there. The compound radius neck is great, the fretwork was as good as any guitar I've played, the choice of electronics and control layout is also excellent. The case that came with the guitar was also high quality. I think the JB and Jazz pickups are great for covering a lot of territory. The ONLY things I would change are maybe to add a push pull/coil tap and personally I would prefer a toggle versus the blade switch, but this is just my preference. A note on the action: I prefer very low action and a lot of people wonder how I can set up my guitars the way I do. I try to target around 3/64" at the 12th and 24th frets. With a couple of bridge post turns I had this action, with no perceptible buzzing - this the sign of a good fret job and quality neck. I didn't even bother adjusting the truss rod. All I did was make some slight intonation adustments and it was ready to go. Well, all I can say is that after that gig I had the most compliments on my tone and playing, that I've ever had (coming from the audience and the band). I'm now at the point that I'm considering picking up a DK2T AND DK2 (trem) for a good $800 less than I was going to spend on the JP. Even if replace the JT590LP with an original Floyd, I'm still up $600 and now have a spare guitar...how is this a bad deal?? Why jeopardize damaging a $2000+ guitar at a bar gig? When you could play one of these and not want to commit suicide if you scratch it?!? FWIW, I play through a JSX combo with lower gain settings (3 on the orange channel and 5 on the red channel), with an Ice 9 OD for a sustain/gain bump if I feel like I need, a Morley Bad Horsie, and Hardwire Delay and Chorus pedals. The night I played this guitar, I played everything from REM to Ozzy to Neil Young to Aerosmith to Alice in Chains with this guitar and setup. This guitar (and jacksons in general) is extremely underated.
Jackson makes some pretty sick guitars. I played this guitar in the store the other day and i was impressed. I plyed some Metallica on a Line 6 amp and was actually suprised to find that the metal sound was pretty good. It sounded like the guitar does on Metallicas Ride the Lighting. This guitar is good for metal. Pick-ups could be better though.
This guitar is very comfortable to play. The pick ups in it are decent, but i would recommend some better ones, perhaps emg's. This stays in tune for a while if you dont go crazy with it. But over all this guitar is good. I gave it 4 stars because of the pickups
