    Figured I'd chime in here, the neck joint isn't an issue at all in the higher frets on the DKA8. It's got some of the best fret access I've experienced outside of super deep cutaways.

    HNGD though OP, that thing looks really clean. I just wish they'd use normal pickup routes.

    Love the colour, HNGD. one of the things I've noticed from looking at this guitar is how much the body looks exactly the same as my ESP 208. I wonder if they are all built in the same factory. Bargain price mate.

    Jammed out on the 7 string version for about 30 minutes in the store yesterday, I didn't even notice the heel once I was playing!

    I've got a Schecter Omen 8, and the only thing that turns me off is the higher fret access. How is it here?

    Nice pics, btw. Beautiful deep red!

    Congrats! I saw a nice black one at Thomann and I'm really coNsidering getting it.... One thing that puts me of (slightly) is the pickup size problem...
    Coz I'll probably wanna replace them.... So my question is: Does it Djent?

    I'll make a test soon. In one or two weeks tops, I'll get one

    For comparison, I will use the same amp, but the guitar in the video couldn't be more different, and that's what I'm curious about...how does the basswood 8 stringie with stoc pups do against a mahogany 7 string with Bareknuckles

    Happy NGD man, looking good. Pity about that heel though, thats very un-jackson. Also, one of the tuners, I think its the high B string, looks incredibly crooked?
    But hey, the tuners will probably be replaced anyway. Im considering the 7-string of this model, because like you said, for that money the guitar looks great and leaves some financial space for upgrades.

    Hey there, I could be buying this guitar. There's just one thing I would like to know. What are the dimensions of the pickup, because I maybe would replace thel with like Nazguls or something. I see that the pickup is very big so I'm afraid a passive mount wouldn't fit in. So I thought on maybe putting in active mounts, because they would fill up the cavity most likely. I just wonder if they would fit in and not be too big or still too small.

    Thanks in advance!

    That neck looks super thin and fast for an 8! I may purchase one of these here soon

    Sweet guitar, HNGD. Red is my favorite color, but I'm picky about it on guitars. This one looks good. Enjoy it!
