"Insane sustain"

The sustainer is one of the really cool additions to this model, and it's really what separates it from all the rest of the DK2 series. Aside from the sustainer, it's really the same model. The guitar has the following specs:

Alder body with flamed maple veneer
Maple bolt-on neck
Rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets
HSS configuration: Sustainiac Driver (neck), STK-1 single-coil (mid), JB TB4 humbucker (bridge)
Binding
Jackson licensed floyd rose
Sharkfin inlays
Five way switch
Volume, tone and mini toggle switches

UTILIZATION

This one was pretty good in terms of how it was built. I have two major gripes with this model, however. The first one is that the flame top on this is just a veneer. It's only for looks and adds no tonal properties to this at all. That really cheapens things up, in my opinion. However, for the price, it's understandable. The other one is that the bridge on this is really not that great. The screws can strip easily, the fine tuners' threads are too coarse, and it just feels bad. If you decide to keep this model, I highly recommend replacing it with an original floyd rose. Not only will it last longer and feel better, I honestly believe that it'll sound better.

SOUNDS

The guitar has a very unique sustainer in the neck which I'll get to later. First, the bridge is a JB. The JB is pretty famous considering it's been the #1 high gain pickup for the past 30 or so odd years. It's been used on everything from blues to death metal recordings, and it can really do all styles. However, it can also be a bit bright and loose for some people, so keep that in mind. The STK-1 in the middle is pretty cool, but I only use the middle for split positions. I can't give much info there. The sustainic in the neck is what sets this guitar apart from everything else, and the sustainer can really lead to some awesome tones. For an idea as to how effectively you can use this, listen to Steve Vai's "Building the Church."

OVERALL OPINION

I like this model a bit better than the other DK2 models thanks to it being more versatile. The sustainer really adds another dimension of tone that a lot of other guitars don't seem to utilize for whatever reason. If you decide to get one, I recommend buying used as you'll get a much better deal than if you were to buy brand new.
