  • NEWBIE HERE..ProSeries DK2 Help

    Hey here to this forum and looking for some info!

    I just picked up a Pro Series DK2 for $400. It has a 3-bolt neck on it...most of the Pro DK2's I've seen online have a 4-bolt neck and don't seem to be available in this color. (the guy told me it is "Rocket Red" but it's like a bright neon orange really - I wouldn't call it Red!). I really wanted a Slime Green one...since Dweezil Zappa's "Having A Bad Day" album I've wanted some kind of slime green Jackson!

    A few questions...

    Is this a 2019 model? (I went throught the Jackson archived catalogs on the website...they stop at 2018, and then jump to 2020...couldn't find a 2019 catalog there!)

    This one should have an Alder body, graphite-reinforced neck and Ebony fretboard, right? (Not Okume body?!?)

    Did I get a pretty good deal at 400?!? (It looks brand new)

    Whats the start of the serial number? It might give a clue as to when it was manufactured.

      If I remember, the 3 bolt is a fairly recent invention
      Like, just in the past decade.
      **Good lord, am I now talking about "the past decade" as being "fairly recent". How fucking old am I.

      On my 2016 Charvel, Rocket Red looks very much like an orange street cone.

        Should be a 2019 model.
        I feel my soul go cold... only the dead are smiling.
