Hey all. My first post here, so go easy on me, will ya?
Later today I will be receiving a barely-used Jackson DK2S Sustainiac electric. Previous to this, I had purchased one brand new from Sweetwater in the last year that they were produced. I sold it to help a friend out (remind me NEVER to do that again).
After that, I found one that needed some repair, so I purchased it. I fixed it up, and I plan to sell it really soon.
I found another one this week for an almost too-good-to-be-true price in great shape. With the Jackson TSA case. Awesome.
There's no doubt - they're strange instruments. I am ~not~ a fan of Floyd trems. I am definitely a Tune-O-Matic guy, and that's what most of my electrics have.
I don't shred, or anything near it. I play primarily slow melodic doom.
All the Jackson is really used for is for long sustained single notes that are relatively common in European melodic doom.
It's a cool effect.
Does anyone else have a Sustainiac guitar? Do you use it on your recordings? I'm a big fan of the effect. I just wish it had a TOM bridge instead of the bothersome floating tremolo.
