The DX10 is part of the lower end model lineup that Jackson puts out for guitarists who are just starting out. It's not a guitar meant for those who are really serious about playing guitar, in my opinion. While some of these are pretty killer, a lot of them are very inconsistent and just not something I would consider high quality. The guitar features a basswood body, a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, 24 frets, dot inlays, two humbuckers, a licensed floyd, one volume, one tone and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

The guitar had one major issue right off the bat, and it was the neck joint. The neck joint on this guitar was pretty loose, and it can cause a problem with both tuning stability and tone. It's a bit disappointing to see this. For those wondering how it can cause tuning issues, if the neck gets bumped real hard, the high e can fall off of it, and the change in tension due to the neck being off center can cause some issues. The fretwork on this was very mediocre, but it's about what you'd expect from these kinds of guitars. It's no different from any other lower end guitar when it comes to this aspect. The floyd on this is a licensed floyd that has pot metal or something for the baseplate, and it just doesn't sound or feel good.

SOUNDS

The guitar has stock humbuckers in it that I believe are meant to sound like Seymour Duncan pickups, but in reality, they don't sound anything like the actual ones they're trying to mimic. The bridge sounds like a very bland high output pickup, and it doesn't really sound that great. The neck is much the same in that it's a very boring sounding pickup. I wasn't able to get the tone I was looking for in these pickups, and if you're going to replace these, be sure that the actual body wood itself sounds good. A lot of these have dead sounding basswood bodies, and it's not exactly the best platform to start out with. That's not to say basswood is bad; it's just that these don't utilize a very high quality basswood from what I've experienced.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are meant for either the super budget minded individual or somebody who just wants a cheap Jackson for whatever reason, be it a beginner or someone who just wants something cheap to throw around. You're probably better off buying something like an Agile or a used LTD instead of getting one of these, in my opinion.
