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.

I thought it would be a heavy sounding guitar but when chugging chords, it sounds as if I'm chugging on a clean channel.

Comments about Jackson JS34Q Dinky DKA-M:

I've been playing for 30 years and when some hard times hit 5 years ago I had to sell my Peavey Wolfgang Custom and half stack.

I'm now to a place where I could afford up to 300.00 for an electric guitar and I did my homework hoping to get something that sounds and plays as nice as my Wolfgang did.

I did extensive research on my options and this guitar kept coming up, so I went to Guitar Center and luckily they had a couple of these there. I played over 20 different guitars in that price range (Ibanez, Mitchell, Epiphone, Kramer, Schecter and a few others) And I kept goi back to the Jackson for its sound and more importantly it's playability.

With the exception of the Kramer Striker, which had the same low action (but lacked the sound) none of the other guitars were even in the same realm.

The compound radius neck is so flat and fast that playing it is almost effortless. Between the playability and the sound, after 2 hours I finally came to the conclusion that this was the guitar for me. (Plus GC has it on sale right now for 279.99!)

The one slight bummer was that I bought a brand new one in the box (I checked the action very quickly and it's even better than the floor model) but I didn't do a complete test and the low E has a bit of a buzz... My fault for not catching it, but that's fixed easy enough.

I also want to note that these may be called "Dinky" but if they're smaller than a normal strat style guitar, I can't tell the difference. The guitar is perfect in size and it's a nice solid well made beautiful instrument.

Comments about Jackson JS34Q Dinky DKA-M:

I've had this a few hours now and only see one problem. The locking bolt that hold 5 & 6 string came off when I was trying to tune and now it won't go back on. Irritating. I may try a thinner gauge string. If that doesn't work will contact Jackson to get suggestions. Other than this one issue fabulous guitar. Others have reported it staying in tune, but after 2 hours playing hard, strings pretty much stayed in tune. I gave up my Fender for this and don't regret. Just a really nice guitar.

          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.

            I proudly play this everyday ,its just that much fun to play. Very professional sound feel and tone the action on this is awesome, I had considered dropping in some 1972 Dimmarzios in it but these humbuckers sound great.
