Well. I'm not really in a position to compare this guitar to much else as this is my first Floyd Rose style guitar. I will say though, I did try one other guitar like this. It was an ltd. it almost turned me off completely for Floyd rose. I gave this one a try and it was ten times easier to work with. I am highly impressed by the quality of this guitar. I normally play Les Paul style guitars, but I made an exception for this one. I recommend this one for the novice to intermediate guitar player. The Floyd rose bridge holds tune awesome dive after dive. The pickups aren't too shabby either for a lower end guitar. I have recorded a couple of riffs and songs in my home studio and it sounds quite good, again, for a lower end guitar. The price is right if you're looking for a lower priced guitar with decent hardware for rocking out.

In a world where all of the major guitar manufacturers are making great entry level guitars, it is more important than ever to be consistent with these lower price point instruments. I should also note I would have happily spent money on the pro model if it wasn't some weird burnt orange with matching head stock.

The guitar arrived with basically no setup, if you are not familiar with setting up a guitar I would strongly suggest your local guitar tech set it up prior to playing it.

The Good: The tone of the guitar is actually pretty good, after setup it plays nice, the pickups are moderate output kind of dark sounding, the pots are nice and smooth, the neck doesn't look straight but it set up fine, I had to add a spring to the trem to get it to float properly(I play 10s) but it floats perfectly and stays in tune. Is lightweight!

The Bad: I purchased the natural finish, while playing my fingernails kind of get caught in the thick wood grain, I am sure this will smooth with time... not a major deal. The 6th fret is buzzy I will need a fret level.

The Ugly: Every rout in the body is poor, the neck literally sits in the pocket at a slight angle resulting in the 6th string being closer to the edge of the fretboard at the 24th fret than at the 1st fret. Also the neck is offset in the pocket resulting in the first string being much further from the edge of the fretboard than the 6th. I have had a couple issues with the 6th string rolling off of the fretboard while playing but nothing major so far. Playing on the first string is actually improved because of this as I have a little more room to manipulate the string so I am chalking this up as 'character' of the guitar :/ The humbucker mounting screws are too close together on the bridge pickup resulting in bowed out edges on the pickup mounting rings. The trem cover on the back is either too big or the rout is too small resulting in a cover that doesn't really fit at all save for the screws that are forcing it to attach

Comments about Jackson JS32 Dinky DKA Electric Guitar:

Bought this as a lighter, less-sustain alternative to my Gibsons. Definitely met all my expectations. I've had this guitar for about a month now and I love it. The pick ups it comes with are pretty good too. Only downsides are minimal and really only apply to anyone who plans on throwing some heavier gauge strings on. In my case, I'm using 13s and I had to buy extra tension springs for the Floyd Rose since it didn't come with more than the stock 3 (which wasn't enough to pull the 13s. 4 did the trick). Lastly, the locking nut screws aren't long enough to grab the threads if the strings are too thick. Minor downsides, and easily fixable, but worth mentioning.

    i use mainly for practicing and some use in church worship band, if you want to use a string gauge different from 9's which is what it comes with invest in extra tremolo springs which you can get cheap from g/c. you will get plenty of practice setting up this guitar. but when you get it tuned and intonated and the truss rod set awesome guitar for the price awesome sound. does have some fret buzz on low e string or 6th string which you see on the other comments

          Very nice guitar for the money. I've been playing off and on (mostly off) for about 10yrs now. Seems I pick the guitar up every winter, only to be frustrated and giving up time and time again. Not saying this time will be different, but at least I'll have a pretty decent guitar to start back up on next year lol

          Solid guitar, good feel. Feels very easy on the hands and fingers, so if you're new to guitars, this wouldn't be a bad start.

                Bought a JS22 model & loved it. Decided to buy another Jackson and go for a step up. I'd never had a guitar with a Floyd type tremolo & was a little intimidated at first. But after a few YouTube videos & experimenting, I'm much more comfortable and was able to do some additional set up. Action is low, like I like it. Very fast neck & the trem stays in tune when laying on the whammy. No fret buzz on this particular guitar. Stock pickups sound great playing through my Katana amp. Good price. Would buy another one in a minute. The natural finish feels a little rugged, but nice to look at.

                This is an absolute gem for the price. The quality of this Jackson Dinky is matched by the affordable price. I purchased another Dinky last year and was amazed by the action, tone, and weight of the guitar. I was hoping that Jackson would be consistent with their quality, and they did not disappoint. I would recommend this guitar to anyone looking for great neck action, a "buzz-free" clean tone, and a more comfortable/wider neck action.

                I like to play metal. Loud. This guitar has a great feel, nice slim tapered neck. The pickups squeal, scream, and crunch very well; and they're pretty quiet when you let off. Not the best for note articulation... but these are stuck pickups on an entry level axe. This thing is an ace.
