The Jackson JS22R Dinky is an electric guitar that features an Indian cedro body, bolt-on maple neck with 24-jumbo fret rosewood fingerboard Jackson's classic sharkfin inlay, dual Jackson JE10 high-output humbuckers, a 2-point fulcrum-style tremolo, one volume and one tone control. 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!

i got this guitar because when i leave for college, i wont be able to bring my dad's 1982 ibanez blazer. This guitar may be for metal, but i use it for rock. it sounds great! but compared to my dad's its only ok
I got this guitar as a birthday present and it has great quality. Good looks and everything. Although, every once in a while it will let out a high pitched sound that lasts around 30 seconds. its noticeable, but not loud. might be the amp though...
I have Fender and Squier strats and was looking for something different, a guitar that sounded well distorted but also clean because I don't play metal, my taste is more towards rock and blues, and other styles with less gain. I couldn't find much demos of Jacksons, Ibanez's or Schecters where you can hear the clean tones, most say they're made for metal. so I had to try one, I tried Schecter Omens and were OK but when I played this Jackson JS22 I found the sound I wanted. I tried both with high gain and clean, and it sounded wonderfully, it's easy to play, the knobs work good and feel solid. the neck is beautiful, so is the finish. At first it used to go out of tune but now it's better. an important point: It's within my budget. An incredible value, a fine instrument and very accessible. It even has a compound radius, and the inlays are the classic shark tooth of Jackson guitars. The Guitar Center salesman at Hallandale, Fl was very helpfful, had patience, found me a trem bar that was missing and gave me good advice. A plus for the guitar: The included shark gigbags.
I got this guitar because I needed a decent model from a reputable brand that was on the less expensive side. This did it. Works fine, but it doesn't have the sustain a better quality model might. It's a little flat at times, but the metal crunch it provides at drop tunings is nice. I'd recommend it for anyone that needs a guitar for playing metal at the $200 price range. It struggles with leaner tones, but hey, it sounds better than some even at the $300+ level. It's hard to find anything that actually works for this price, so all-in-all, it's fine.
