    Brand New Ibanez Prestige Neck Problem

    Jackson DK2M Japan vs newer Pro Series Dinky DK3QM

    Hey guys, wondering if anyone has owned both the DK2M Japan from the early 2000s and the newer Pro Series DK3QM. I own the DK2M Japan and its my favorite guitar, however, its getting a bit old and rickety, Im considering picking up this DK3QM if the quality and feel is the same. Thanks!
