I am thoroughly happy with my snow white DK2m.


I took me some time to get there.

The neck was bolted on crooked, so i had loosen the four neck bolts and straighten it out a little, no big deal but still.


Had to set the pickup heights, string intonation, truss rod and spring tension on the floyd.


Again not a huge deal, but i did not know how to do some of it at the time and it took me a few weeks to get the guitar set up just right.


All that said, I love guitar, it's very comfortable and it sounds great. I find it to be very versatile, really clean jazz stuff, to blues, to rock, to hard rock. My buddy's who play it all seam to really like it too. It's a winner. Just make sure you get a good price on one.


Also, if you are not sure how to set up the floyd just right, make sure you watch the youtube video at the bottom of my sig, it's really helpful.
