Overview

The Jackson DKMG Dinky is a rock and roll machine. Carved top alder body, maple neck, compound-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with shark-tooth inlays. EMG 81 and 85 pickups for crunchy rhythm sounds and punchy lead tones. Floyd Rose-licensed double-locking tremolo.

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!

This is the best Japan made Jackson ever made. Starting with the neck. It is a fast neck, the action is low and perfect for rythm and lead, and is not to skinny and not to fat, very comfortable when you play. The body is a solid body really feels like a U.S.A. made product. It's as heavy as Fender Strat, but gives you that Jackson soound. Speaking of sound the EMG's are just like PB&J with the wood on the Jackson. You can get that fat trebly, trebly fat, trebly, or fat sound. They are even more amazing when you punch the distortion up and punch a rythm with a heavy fast lead with a 3 stack Marshall you will crave this guitar for the rest of your life. Classic rock to blues to metal to country it is one of the most versatile pickups ever made. The hardware like the Floyd Rose Tremolo is great for that crazy rythm or that fast lead you crave. Also, the all black looks so slick on the guitar great look that will make anyone turn. This guitar will be one the most slickest, most versatile, most well built guitar, Jackson will ever make.

Many errors during the first month I got this guitar, and brand new. The floyd rose does not stay in tune, I had the bridge PU knob snap on me and I had to fix it myself, and worst of all, Its starting to cut out, and I tried it through many dif amps, and bought new input cords and still cuts out, very low quality guitar

Absolutley Wonderful

By bradsucks69

from Richmond, Kentucky

Well... the first thing i noticed was this guitar amazing looks. So thats what really turned me on to it. Then I plugged it into a line6 150 watts... switched it to the metal setting... and I have'nt played a guitar that sounds this good since. I got this guitar for christmas and so far i have no problems with it.

the shred

By spooky breakfast

from denver co

let me start of by saying tht i've only played 5 guitars with active pickups and i don't like the way they sound. this guitar is a dream though. the neck is so smooth, i've never played anything faster except maybe the satriani sigs and i stick to bc rich and ibanez almost exclusively. i've played my friends rhoads alot and this blew it out of the water completely. within 10 minutes of picking this up i was shredding better than i ever had. its a drem just to look at even. the bridge on the one i played was set tight which i like because it doesn't dip when you rest your hand, divebombs are great but it doesn't trill too well so if your a slayer fan then you might wanna keep looking, maybe it was just the model i had though. tone was great, clear and sharp like emgs do but lacking in real warmth. if you're looking for pure power so you can just play and not have to worry about little nuances then this great, it almost felt like cheating when i sat down with a strat later and realized how much of an advantage this thing gives you. i played through the line 6 spider 3's the 30 watt and the larger combos, not the cab though. they all sounded great with this on different settings. i didn't like the reverse headstock just because you have to feel for the knobs to tune it, but the floyd rose makes it easy so that its not too much of an issue. its an archtop and kinda small so its light and very easy to play standing. there was only one volume knob though so i was a little disappointed. really though this is an amazing guitar and well worth the price, don't worry about buyers remorse, i'd change the pickups just because i'm a freak and i like dimarzio and duncan. if you have the money, get it, its pretty, it plays great and it has great tone, good sustain and helluva smooth overall.

unbelieveable!

By Erik Schultz

from Appleton, WI

This guitar has everything I had ever wanted! From the agressive look, E85 pickups, light weight, jackson/ floyd rose combo, and easy manueverability, this guitar kicks some serious butt. Playing Slayer, Trivium, and Metallica have become much easier thanks to Jackson DKMG series.

Wicked Guitar

By Korpse of Necrosomnia

from Douglasville, GA

I love this guitar it is perfect. I bought mine off of a guitarist in a local band and it plays beautifully. He shaved the neck down and then put in a Duncan Invader bridge pick-up. It has an amazing sound coming through my Crate GLX1200H combo head and double 4x12's. It's the only guitar I use on stage now because it sounds so great and it plays so well. Plus mine is Black Forest Green which reminds me of the Black Forest back home in Germany. Hands down the best guitar I've ever played, buy it as soon as possible!

Ouch

By Mean Cream Machine

from Plymouth MN

I had the EXACT same problems with my guitar as the other reviewer here. Extremely disappointed, Bridge pick up knob snapped, doesn't stay in tune, except to add on top of all of that, the toggle switch doesn't even work half the time when I switch to my neck pickup, horrendous.

heavenly action

By slayer_is_better_than_metallica

from you know, that place

I played on this guitar at a guitar center and plugged it into a cheap fender amp. Now we all know that fender metal distortion isn't good, but with this guitar, it rocked!! The active EMGs give you a heavy thin tone. The action on this guitar was amazing!! When you went up high on the fretboard,you barely had to press down to get sound out of it! The locking nut really kept it in tune. Without the whammy bar, I went up and down, and it never went out of tune!! this guitar is amazing for metal.

Holy Poop

By Joesizzle

from Chicago

Well first off I was lookin on the computer for a long time for a guitar that looks good,plays heavy, and is in my price range....and i came along this bad boy....it jus so happened it was at the guitar center i went to that same day and i immediately bought without tryin it out...after buying it...i sat down....hooked it up to a mesa amp.....(no added distortion) and jesus did it kick back...i played some metallica....i wanted to see how it sounded going from heavy riffs to to slow chords and so i played master of puppets and one and it sounded amazing....i also use a line 6 (uber metal) pedal that gives me that metal sound i dont think i will be able to find n e where else....well worth it...cheap....and EMG pickups....if ur lookin for something heavy and affordable...dont look n e where else!!!!

Jackson, you have outdone your self...

By Chris

from Seattle

I absouletly love this guitar! I first saw this guitar at my local shop, and i tryed it on a line 6 75 watter. and oh my god! it was a darn sweet guitar! I've played everything from a Fender Strat to a Shecter HellRaiser. But this is my favorite from Jackson yet! The EMG's light this thing on fire too! i love how i can keep a sustain longer, and the shrak tooth inlays are sweet too! The Floyd Rose Tremolo is by far what keeps this thing alive sometimes! i have shaken it and dive bombed and not once does it go out of tune! This guitar is by far my favorite that i own. oh and if you put some ernie ball super slinkys on it it will send this thing skyward!

By knowitall

from Fort Worth TX

GREAT!! Best guitar I have ever owened. Stays tuned, great action, fantastic feel. I purchased the 'skulls' version about a year ago and love it still; with not regrets. For rocking at home or live I wouldn't use anything else. Anyone I have let try it loves it to. I would recommend it to my mother....if she played rock, metal, or even an instrument. LOL
