Re: Jackson Dinky DK2
Neck pickup not central in the routing, so much so that the right side screw had cut into the edge of the route and took all the paint off, because it wasn't central the pole pieces then didn't line up with the strings. QC on a top end guitar like that should have spotted that one! The string alignment on the fretboard wasn't too brilliant either, saw a few (including the one I had) where the strings were very close to one side of the fretboard and with a large gap on the other at the 24th fret, not as bad as a bolt on neck that's had a hard knock, but annoying none the less, and being a neck-through was nothing much I could do about it. The shop told me that that was the way Petrucci wanted it, but I've since seen other Majesty's that have the strings perfectly aligned. Oh and the trem wasn't anywhere near as good as an Edge in terms of returning to pitch, with a bit of lube it got a lot better, but again, this should have been good from the start, not requiring the buyer to start adding lube! If it were a cheap Chinese guitar then I'd expect it, but when spending between £2500 and £3000 I expect a lot better.
