Jackson DKMG Neck Joint!

Hi, I've decided I really like the Jackson DKMG. I'm happy with everything on it bar one thing: the NECK JOINT!

It's a bolt-on; which is fine, but it's not like the Ibanez sort of 'shaped' bolt-on- it's a square type (can't think of a technical term)- it's quite bulky and in the way of the upper frets so accessibility is nowhere near as good as any Ibanez RG. This is annoying as the guitar plays very well and, without this obstruction, it would be a definite buy.

I don't really know what to do as I do really like this guitar, but I can't stand the neck joint the way it is- what would you guys recommend I do?

Thanks
Regards
Jon

It's a fine guitar, but if you don't like the joint move one - case closed. It appeals more to the old school RG5xx and RG7xx series guitars

Re: Jackson DKMG Neck Joint!

Thanks guys, spotted the Washburn WM24VF and I'm gonna try to get round to trying one. I'm not sure they're even available in the UK though lol! I do like the DKMG, I would definitely get it if it wasn't for the neck joint- I'll definitely give it a re-think though .
Thanks
Regards

Re: Jackson DKMG Neck Joint!

When I first got a used S, I'd forgotten about the neck heel until after it showed up.

Kinda annoyed me at first but then I stopped worrying about it and played the ****er. Now it's my favourite player and I don't even notice that it's there really.

Those Dinky's are great guitars for the money.
