I've been GASsing for a trem and single coil equipped guitar for quite some time now. Does anyone have any experience with these? They look the business, and the specs are quite impressive for the price.
This would be my first ever floating trem guitar. How is the licensed Floyd likely to perform? I'm not one for huge divebombs or Herman Li nonsense, just the odd warble or two. Would a genuine Floyd fit into the routing?
Opinions would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: I've just discovered that the "single coils" are actually stacks.
I've been doing a lot of research on Jacksons lately so I can share what I've found...
From what I understand, is an OFR will be a drop-in replacement; the post spacing is identical. You can re-use the existing posts, also; I think the ones that come with the OFR are slightly larger?

FWIW I used to own a DXMG and an RR2, and they both had the JT580LP trem and I had no issues. OFR would be a definite upgrade, though.
I miss both of them; the necks are awesome. Extremely fast. The fretwork on the MIJ Jackson's is among the best I've seen in the price range.
I think you'll be happy with the DK2. I have two Jacksons on my short list now; an RR24M and the new SLAT3-7 soloist 7 string - can't wait.
