Jackson DK2 Dinky Electric Guitar Trans BlueToday’s featured guitar is the Jackson DK2 Dinky Electric Guitar Trans Blue. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Jackson DK2 Dinky Electric Guitar is both a looker and a screamer with Seymour Duncan STK-1s in the neck/mid and a Duncan JB in the bridge position and flashy finishes. The alder body is fitted with a shred-eriffic rock maple neck and a bound compound-radius rosewood fretboard. Transparent finish models have a stunning flamed maple top. A scalloped heel means uninhibited access to the upper frets, while a Floyd Rose double-locking trem let’s you dive as deep as you want. A deluxe Jackson molded case by SKB comes with the package to protect your investment and keep it looking good.

Jackson’s compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. With a more relaxed hand, you’ll play better.

Gibson RD Standard Electric Guitar Trans Amber

Gibson RD Standard Electric Guitar Trans AmberToday’s featured guitar is the Gibson RD Standard Electric Guitar Trans Amber. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Gibson RD guitars were introduced in 1977 and remained on the production line for only five years. They were routed through active electronics. The neck was glued in, in accordance with Gibson tradition, but was made to a 25.5-inch scale length, and carried a maple fingerboard. Body and neck were also both made of maple, all elements intended to contribute to a brighter, snappier tone. It was a clever and well-thought-out piece of guitar design, and won a few devoted fans, but fewer than 1,500 were sold in its three-year run. In response to heavy demand from collectors worldwide, Gibson USA has proudly resurrected this double-cut solidbody. With the same bright sound and innovative design, the Gibson RD’s return is cause for celebration.

The Gibson RD Standard Reissue is a fantastic reissue that captures the unique vibe of this unusual electric guitar, but incorporates many of the tried and true features that Gibson fans have come to know and love. It features a “reversed” Firebird style solid mahogany body, a set mahogany neck with a rounded ’50s shape, a 22-fret rosewood fretboard, and has the traditional 24-3/4″ Gibson scale length.

A Gibson Tune-O-Matic bridge provides a firm seating for the strings, and allows the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields excellent coupling between strings and body, maximizing resonance, tone, and sustain. A separate “stopbar” tailpiece is designed to further enhance the connection between the strings and the body. Grover kidney shaped machine heads deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. They are die cast and have a gear ratio of 14:1. A special lubricant inside the gearbox provides smooth and accurate tuning stability. All hardware is chrome plated.

The RD Standard Reissue guitar is loaded with Gibson BurstBucker Pro pickups. The BurstBucker Pro enhances the vintage “edge” of Gibson’s popular BurstBucker pickups with the added feature of an Alnico 5 magnet. They are wax potted so that they can withstand loud volume pressures without annoying feedback. With the BurstBucker Pro, all “Pure Tone Lovers” can now have stunning humbucking tone.

The Gibson RD guitar comes with a hardshell case.

Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar Trans Black 1960s Neck

Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar Trans Black 1960s NeckToday’s featured guitar is the Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar Trans Black 1960s Neck. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Tribute honors Epiphone’s history and association with Les Paul that dates back to the days when Les—working at the Epiphone factory on 14th St. in New York—created the world’s first solidbody electric guitar. Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone by reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. The Epiphone “Tribute” Les Paul Standard honors that relationship by combining “as good as it gets” performance and features with venerable Epiphone quality and value.

Solid woods, set-neck construction
At the heart of the Les Paul Tribute is construction that features a solid mahogany back with a solid, carved hard maple cap to create the ultimate combination of warmth and bite. Everyone knows that set-neck guitars provide the best rock tone and sustain and the Tributes Les Paul takes that to the next level featuring the original “deep set” neck joint. The solid mahogany neck with hand-fitted, glued-in joint extends well into the neck pickup cavity creating maximum neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood. Combined with the mahogany/maple body, the result is a tribute to Les’ timeless guitar design with the sound that you can only get from a Les Paul.

Your choice of neck profiles
Depending upon your taste, you have the choice of either a traditional “1960s” SlimTaper™ neck profile or an Asymmetrical neck profile. The “1960’s” SlimTaper is a comfortable “D” shaped neck that was used and made famous on many 1960s era, Kalamazoo-made guitars from Gibson and Epiphone. The newer Asymmetrical neck has multiple radiuses and combines a more rounded “D” shape on the bass side of the neck with a flatter “C” shape on the treble side. This leads to a very comfortable neck that more ergonomically contours to fit the hand of most players. Both profiles are available on the Tribute and the choice is yours!

Vintage humbucker sound
Quality construction, premium woods and neck profile choices are only part of the equation. Capturing all the power and nuances of the “Tribute” is a pair of authentic Gibson USA ’57 Classic humbucking pickups. With its “Patent Applied For” decal on the base plate, the ’57 Classic and ’57 Classic Plus are faithful replicas of the famous Gibson humbuckers that helped define the music of the late 1950s. The ’57 Classic gives you a tone that is warm and subtle with full, even response that doesn’t hold back when you need that storied Gibson humbucker crunch! The ’57 Classic Plus is the perfect bridge pickup and mimics humbuckers of that era that received a few extra turns of wire. This treatment gives the pickup slightly higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. In combination, this pair of humbuckers overdrives tube preamps to a smooth level of saturation without becoming overpowering. Both ’57s feature Gi
