Re: DBK vs BRMR
I am a DBK owner, and I can afford a BRMR, and have played one in a store through the same amp that I own (Peavey JSX 212). Although it wasn't a true A/B test with both guitars handy to swap back and forth. To my ear's memory, their sound was almost identical, with some small differences that could be attributed to any number of factors, the location, cable, etc. And without a doubt their will be differences -- finish, trem, neck to name the obvious, but probably nothing that would put one considerably better then the other.
However, if the look and feel of the BRMR is what turns your crank and the price doesn't bother you... then it's the one for you. Otherwise the DBK should be the ticket.
Personally, I took the money I saved and bought the JSX.
