    Yes, they are the official Jackson dealers in India hence the prices are quite high , website's like bajaao.com get it from the black market where the prices SHOULD BE LOW ( apparently not !! )

    NO doubts ..go for it ..the DXMG is a brilliant guitar .it will not fail you..be it the neck thickness ,the pups,the body or the finish..the DXMG will not disappoint..but remember ..this guitar will sound very mediocre when u turn it into clean..actually..u cant blame the guitar for that ..its just the EMGs..they aint good at all when it comes to cleans ..so..ifu wanna play clean stuff..dont expect this guitar to blow u away ..but the minute you turn up the distortion and gain..this baby wil blow off anythin you throw at it !

    @satch: Dude hez talking about DKMG, not DXMG, but I think u meant DKMG.

    And yea dude, if ur a metalhead, dont go anywhere else. DKMG with EMG81 & 85 is one hell of a combination. Distortion & effects stuff is at its best when played through DKMG.

    Super slim bolt-on neck with compound radius (neck goes flatter when getting closer to the body) that allows ultra low action with 24 jumbo frets, super-cool Pinhara inlays, lightweight carved-top body, huge belt buttons, licensed floyd rose with double locking mechanism, what else do u need?? Though its tremolo is not well reputed. Better change it to Floyd Rose Original.

    But as Satch said, it sucks with the clean tones. Well not too bad, but u can definitely find a more multipurpose guitar in this range. But get EMG 60 on neck for clean tones, and u are in heaven! Actually Im doing some research in the same price range, and plan to get a guitar at approximately this price, so I have enough info for u. The final verdict is tht if u play real metal/hard rock/shred stuff, then its a godsent guitar for u. And it looks super s.e.x.y too with that inverted headstock ;) But if u need a more versatile axe, check out the Ibanez RG2550E Prestige. God its good! To put that guitar in simple words, its a JEM without the monkey grip & evos. Also check JS1000 Joe Satriani model. I loved its tone too.

    Prices are:

    Jackson DKMG with EMGs = + $750. (Musiciansfriend.com)

    Ibanez RG2550 Prestige = + $875. (Google it)

    Ibanez JS1000 Joe Satch Signature = + $950 (Musiciansfriend.com)

    Peace. Let us know abt ur final decision.

    P.S.: Just thought, did u get inspired for DKMG by seeing Faraz Anwar?

    Thanks a lot for Satch and Mr.Bravo, u guys actually helped me with the decision.

    @Johnny Bravo, Im Not actually looking for a Versatile guitar, as u guessed right. Im looking for a good axe for the Shred style. I already have a Tansen Jackson copy, a squier tele for the clean stuff, and a Ibanez S series copy.

    My other gear include Ax1500g, MT2, NF1 and crybaby 535q.

    And Yeah its not because of Mr.Anwar, I had my eyes set on DXMG for a very long time but Im not sure about the EMG HZ pickups, I thought of something with the actives, and chose this one.

    Eventually I found out Mr.Anwar seems to be using this one, and I checked his website, he is quite good, but not a major inspiration for me. My inspirations include Yngwie, Petrucci, P. Gilbert, Vai and of course Satch, and indian classical both Hindustani and Carnatic, and you know the list goes on...

    Thanks a lot again, and will post here soon

    actually..their is only one difference between DXMG and DKMG ...the DX comes with passive pups a.k.a EMG HZ .and the DK comes with EMG 81/85..but anyway..they may look the same ..but they sound different ..your rite johny ..my mistake ..

    @"Mr." Olivier: Dude get rid of that Mister crap! Ur embarrasing me.

    N secondly abt that JT580LP (Jackson DKMG bridge), its stability has some issues. Throws ur guitar outta tune pretty soon if u pull the whammy upwards, and divebombs are also not very safe. And as u mentioned Vai as ur inspiration, then i suggest u need a pretty stable bridge. Better get a Floyd Rose original. Its gonna cost u around $100-$150 but its gonna be well worth it. Go nuts with it, and u still cant find much to complain about. But if not too rough with the whammy, JT580LP wud do. Dont worry then.

    I guess u have a nice collection of copies there. I dunno much about Tansen stuff, but the S series is good. If u r a smart buyer, i daresay u have S520EX (bear claw, right?) Good series.

    And abt Faraz Anwar, dude u need to listen to his music. I wudnt say hez better than Vai or Satriani, but hez definitely close, and im not exaggerating. Give him 5 yrs n good exposure, n he'll be a legend. Serious talent, especially when seen live. Try Chairoscuro, Lost in Spain, Where Am I, his whole album Abstract Point Of View. Awesome stuff.

    Yea EMG HZ are kinda passive pups. Get 81 & 85 combo. Good stuff for shred.

    And double click mentioned a Schecter guitar upstairs. I dunno much abt it. Saw a custom Schecter once. Tried it but didnt quite click with my taste. Its low end was weak, while I like warm, yummy typo bass. Might suite u, check it out before buying. Post up if need more help. Peace.

    Reemal Investrade is the official dealer for Jacksons in India..and Onstage stocks jacksons thru Reemal...
    there's an Onstage outlet in Delhi, Lajpat Nagar, Phase 1, although there are more of ibanezs and fenders over there...saw a couple of RRs...one JS 30DK...must tell you, the finsh of the RR is awesome...and so is the feel.....
    the fretboard is extremely good for shreds...cleans were also decent..although somewhat muddy...
