Re: made in japan jackson imports vs made in korea ibanez RG's
since I have a jackson DK2S, now I can make some comments.
Japanese jackson VS korean Ibanez..? which one is better.
Japanese jackson, say DK2 S like mine , features:
- licensed floyd
- original duncan pups
- alder body
- bound rosewood fingerboard, bound headstock
Funny thing about this jackson :
1. I don't see any significant high quality like Japanese guitar does. It looks like korean to me, only it has a sticker 'made in japan' , that anyone can put the sticker on it.
2. look at the binding quality, very low standard compared to any Ibanez japan binding quality.
3. the first time I got my hands on the DK2S, i feel like holding a korean made RG 270 DX.
So, before anyone can proof me that the DK2-S is true made in japan, I will only believe it as korean or china-made with 'made in japan' sticker on it.
quality wise.? not any different than any earlier korean made Ibanez RG 270 DX, RG 370 DX), but I trust latest korean made Ibanez is better in craftmanship.
