    Comments about Jackson Special Edition JS22-7 DKA-M Dinky 7-String Electric Guitar:

    I just bought this for my first 7 string as i have played 6 strings all my life. I have to tell you for the price i was very surprised at how well built this guitar was. It sounds great and plays great. Probably gonna upgrade the pickups but still if you are looking for a good entry level 7 string and more this is the guitar for you.

    Solid Feel and Action

    Comments about Jackson Special Edition JS22-7 DKA-M Dinky 7-String Electric Guitar:

    This was my second 7-string guitar (after owning a Schecter Jeff Loomis V). I knew for a small fee that I would be getting a good instrument with a standard look, feel, action, and weight. Modifications are probably welcomed, such as pickup replacements and string gauge/type change. The bottom cut-away I felt collided at times with my fretting hand when reaching for those 7-string sweeps or legato runs. The pick-up selector is positioned in between the volume and tone knobs, a little lower, but may be problematic for some. Overall, it was a worthy buy for a solid piece of wood, and managed to apply a small discount too. It's purpose was to aid as a back-up 7-string, which it does.

      Comments about Jackson Special Edition JS22-7 DKA-M Dinky 7-String Electric Guitar:

      Bought this for my first 7 string. I have been playing six strings since since I was a kid and finally decided to switch to 7 strings after buying this bad boy. The only reason its not a 5 star review is because I would probably change the pickup. Other than that this guitar feels like a pro guitar that is 3 grand. Plays great, sounds good and is very comfortable. Im planning on recording my new album with this. Its that good.

      Not a bad beginner 7 string. I plays well, pickups are little dull. The fret ends were a little rough, cleaned them up easy. The action was pretty high for my taste out of the box, but that was any easy fix.

        Comments about Jackson Special Edition JS22-7 DKA-M Dinky 7-String Electric Guitar:

        Wow! I wasn't sure about spending a lot of money on a 7 string guitar. I don't play a lot of songs that are written for one, so I didn't want to spend what I'd normally spend. Now, I want to play this guitar for everything! I can't believe that for this price, it plays as smoothly as it does. The frets are nice and smooth on the ends, and the tone is great! it stays in tune, as well. At this price point, getting decent tuners is like a roulette game, but the one I received has good tuners on it. The black finish is very glossy. The neck is nice and thin, but solid feeling. I would recommend this guitar to anyone! It's definitely a part of my stage arsenal now. The head stock is huge, so don't hurt your band mates!
