Re: Jackson DK2M. Any thoughts?
If you like Fender and Ibanez necks, you will like the neck. The compound radius feels like both brands at the same time. Bound fretboard and a nice fret finish.
The nothingness of a scarf joint, always welcome.
The JaZZ neck pickup has plenty of bite when it is turned all the way up and mellows out very quickly into jazz when you turn it down. I think it could benefit from the capacitor or what ever is on the Jem's volume pot to keep the treble up as the volume goes down.
The bridge pickup is very versatile.
Bridge: Agree with Jallen , different feel from an edge.* but no stability issues.
Body is Alder and a nice change from my normal Ibanez basswood.
I bought a dk2m for an all purpose, travel and beat it up guitar and to put the maple fretboard neck on my dk2s. The dk2m is pretty in white, I ended up with a cobalt blue one because it was there.
The new ones come with an awesome, SKB rebranded case.
