Been on a craze to get a maple boarded Super Strat recently and was looking for old Ibbys etc when a friend of mine told me about the Jackson DK2M. I was in heaven - Jackson guitar, maple fretboard, sharkies, compound radius, very nice thin neck profile, yada yada yada.

So I picked this up locally - loved it as soon as I saw it. So here it is a white DK2M in great physical shape but very very dirty. I got it from an old timer who loved Jacksons and now is on a Charvel kick. It's got a 3way switch and loaded with the stock Duncan JB/Jazz pups. Actions pretty high and neck needs a small shim... Heck pretty much an entire setup. Going to be setting it up in Eb with 10-46.

However my first order of business is to swap out the trem. It's pretty rusty and to be honest I can't stand it. So I know the OFR or schaller drop in but not sure whcih fits in the routes better and also which is cheaper.

I love that Jackson! Was going to get it but didn't want to pay full price (I'm cheap). I never looked for one used.

Keep me informed on what you do for a trem replacement. I have a DKMG - they have the same stock trems, right? If you find a good replacement I may do the same thing.

Congrats! Great score!

I do not understand Jackson's obsession with 3 way blades on their 2 hum Japanese guitars...
They'd probably say to keep it different from the USA Dinky...

It's not so much the switch, it's the location for me personally. I always end up ping-pong-ing off the volume and tone knob trying to use it. Nevermind flipping it without looking. :(

They should change these to be like the Charvels; one volume, one 3 way toggle, done.
