While most Jacksons tend to have floating tremolos for bridges, they do like to try to appease those who enjoy a hard tail bridge, and this is their hard tail model of the DK2. The guitar has the following specs:

Alder body with flamed maple veneer
Maple bolt-on neck
Rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets
HH configuration
Binding
Jackson hard tail bridge
Sharkfin inlays
Three way switch
Master volume and master tone

UTILIZATION

I should start off this review by saying that I'm not exactly a big hard tail fan. I much prefer floating bridges in terms of feel and tone. One is not really better than the other; it's all preference. I'll try to be as fair as possible, though. The guitar's frets were pretty nice, but I noticed that there were some issues once I started lowering the action a bit. It would fret out on certain frets, so this could probably be a nice fret level. The binding and inlay work is standard par for these guitars in that it's pretty solid, but the binding doesn't seem to be quite as nice as some of the high end Jacksons that I've had my hands on.

SOUNDS

The guitar has a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Jazz in the neck. The JB in the bridge has been the "go to" pickup for nearly everybody in the past 30+ years that it's been around. It's a high output pickup that can have a bit too much treble for some guitars and somewhat loose bass. However, it leads itself to being able to do nearly any style. The pickup has been used in everything from straight blues to brutal death metal. The Jazz in the neck is more of a clean tone pickup. It delivers a very nice clean, but I find the treble to be a bit too much in the neck for high gain leads. It sounds a bit synthetic or hi-fi at times, but it can work out nicely in guitars like Gibson Les Pauls or Explorers.

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar is cool if you're into hard tail guitars. If that's the case, I recommend checking out this guitar as it's very solid for the price. The veneer aspect is a bit cheap, but for the price, it's understandable. I recommend buying this used as you'll get a better deal. Check out eBay for the best prices.
