I'm looking for some ideas about a new Jackson that I'm getting. It's going to be a Jackson DK2M in white (some pics will be provided for reference) and I'd like to think of some things to do to it!

I'm a death metal player and this guitar will be used for Drop A# tuning because I play heavy music. So I probably won't be doing any neon finishes. But I'm open to more then just boring black! I love to try new things!

I can't think of anything to do to it though. So, any ideas?

None of these are pictures of the one I'm getting. They're just Googled references.

Thanks dudes! All Ideas welcome!

I love my DK2M, The main guitar I use in the band Crazy Train.
jB in the Bridge and Pearly Gates in the Neck, so if your playing Death metal, you may want to put a different set of Pups in it.

Sadly, mine is used and has EMG-HZ's in it :/

And while I like the look, I have enough solid color guitars. And I personally don't like the look of white and maple. Black looks much better. But I'm not doing that either.

Maybe a nice vaneer and some black stain would look good. . . . .

I've seen it a thousand times. Same with the white JEM505. I just don't really like the look. I don't hate it either (if I did, I'd never consider the DK2M), I just think maple fretboards look better on dark guitars. It pops out more (obviously).

keep it white, take off all hardware..dip your picking arm in blood red paint and make a picking motion against the body. let dry. put back together.when people see the guitar they will be like,,,WTF then when you start playing it your arm and hand will line up with the bloodz design...:twisted::twisted::twisted:

How about an evil design in black pinstriping, all over the top?

This is one of my favorite guitars, not happy about the color choices but I think I like white the best.

A pickguard WOULD be cool. . . . . . I also like the blood idea.

Not a camo fan but I like the direction that you're going in.

Can't really think of anything in pinstripe that I'd like.

What WOULD be cool (but I don't have the skills/tools to do it OR the money to get it done) would be an balone body inlay or a big dead tree on the arm contor/top of the body.

I guess ther whole point of this is just having something different. I hate having the same guitar as 100,000 other people, you know?

Then definitely a pickguard. You saw the photo of the 450 in white with the carbon fibre look guard? Looks amazing! Well I think so anyway. ;)
