So I noticed this came into my local Guitar Center today (I'm a regular) and I decided to give it a try. I picked it up to notice a relatively slim neck with a little bit more of a D shaped neck than most Ibanez's. Slightly fatter than an Ibanez but more round than a Schecter and super fast. I plugged it into a Line 6 combo (mediocre at best but better than most amps in the store at the time). It sounded AMAZING d00d. The bridge pickup was very articulate and slightly lower output for being a stock pickup. (keep in mind I was playing on a Line 6...) The middle pickup was kind of bland but not bad at all. The neck pickup was pretty treble heavy. To counteract that, just turn down the tone to taste... But anyway, it played like a dream and the Jackson branded Floyd was super comfortable and pushed and pulled really smooth and easy. However, the tuners could be better. They turn slightly too fast to get really accurate tuning but I think they did that to counter the string lag due to the extreme distance from the tuner to the nut. The finish wasn't extremely flashy and defined. (If that's something you worry about) Intonation was close and the action was great (not too high not too low) and had absolutely no buzz. This guitar isn't too heavy (not nearly as heavy as a Les Paul) and it resonated solidly. I don't think I would need to change the pickups anytime soon if I get it and I wouldn't worry about the tuners. If you're looking for a great guitar with a Floyd, a quilted maple top, and HSS style, this is it. GET IT IMMEDIATELY ?_?.

I love the sound and feel of this guitar.. I love the maple neck and the single coil pickups are OK, but the humbucker is really nice. I've only had the guitar for a few weeks but I'm considering taking it back because it just won't stay in tune as Sunburst mentioned in another review.

This axe plays like Buttah and sounds great...

Comments about Jackson JS34Q Dinky DKA-M:

Just picked this thing up yesterday and I have barely put this thing down. Sound: It has a 5-Way Pickup Switch and is very bright. It can get sick tones... But I will change the pickups someday. Playability: It is a very, very smooth 24-Fret guitar and it feels like it's playing itself and you can just kick back and watch almost. Trem: It has a licensed Jackson Floyd Rose and it is not the very best trem out there, but it is a very descent trem. Looks: For me, looks don't matter to me as much as sound and playability, but this quilt is ridiculously beautiful. Mine is the Transparent Blue, and it looks like the water.

Comments about Jackson JS34Q Dinky DKA-M:

Most high performance guitars (Jackson, ESP, Charvel, Ibanez etc) above $1500 will offer fast necks that are easy to bend strings and very responsive to picking harmonics provide wide tonal spectrum.

Products that are targeted at entry level guitars often have frets that have high friction making the string feel like there is more tension and the craftsmanship is what you'd expect from a $350 guitar.

However, this is not the case with the Dinky series. The playability is just like the real U.S made Jackson guitars. The strings bending is effortless and the pickups sound great as well. The bindings, Floyd Rose, tuners, quilted maple top, finish are also good quality. I highly recommend this guitar.

Comments about Jackson JS34Q Dinky DKA-M:

For the money, one of the best electrics I have ever used, and I have quite a few. The fingerboard is rather flat, which is of great benefit for fast playing. The hand on the neck slides like butter, and the sustain is fabulous. I would take this over a Fender any day.

      I'm a bedroom player so I've never played a gig with it but I believe it would do an amazing job. It's a floyd so it's not gonna stay in tune at first but I've never had a guitar with tuning stability like this one. If you set it up properly it's a great guitar.

          Comments about Jackson JS34Q Dinky DKA-M:

          I could not get this guitar to stay in tune. I am not talking about the whammy bar messing up the tuning. This guitar simply could not be tuned, period. I brought the guitar to the shop and was told I would need to pay for a professional set up and have the spring tension checked. Doubtful that this instrument would ever perform well, I had no desire to invest more in it. I returned it.

            This guitar is very playable and sounds great. There were some minor flaws on the fret markers that were easily corrected with some fine sandpaper and guitar polish. Didn't have to do much setup on it to suit my playing style. I did change out the tone capacitor for a deeper tone for playing blues,but that's just a personal preference not a flaw
