Unique snow white finish.
The Jackson DK2 Dinky Electric Guitar is the 2008 model and sports a Seymour Duncan JB TB4 humbucker (bridge)and a
Seymour Duncan Jazz SH2N humbucker (neck) mounted on a sleek alder body for plenty of warm, chunky tone. The shred-eriffic rock maple neck sports a bound compound-radius maple fretboard. A scalloped heel means uninhibited access to the upper frets, while a Floyd Rose double-locking trem lets you dive as deep as you want.
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!

WOW...first off let me state that I have long been a Jackson/Charvel fan. I have owned several different brands of guitars (BC Rich, Fender, Gibson, Dean) and nothing comes close to the quality and playability of a Jackson in my opinion. Now, that being said, I have not always been a fan of the Jackson Dinky line. Fortunately, I had a chance to pick up the new DK2M at a music shop here in town and try it out. First off, the quality of the guitar for the price is PHENOMENAL! The alder body creates a sweet ring on clean notes and a blazing crunch on distorted notes. The neck is nice and fast, and the scalloped body at the end of the neck allows for ultra-easy access to frets 21-24. The guitar comes standard with two Seymour Duncan humbucking pick-ups. A JB in the bridge and a jazz pickup in the neck. The combination of these two create a sweet tone so incredible that you'd have to hear it to believe it. The versatility of this pickup combination in this particular guitar is unlimited. You can play anything from classical to jazz to rock to death metal thanks to these pickups. I bought the snow white edition with the maple fingerboard with black delrin sharkfin inlays and the natural headstock. This guitar offers an extremely unique look and the black binding on the neck and the headstock complete the package.The guitar comes right out of the box in perfect tune and perfectly set up for rock. The action is great and the intonation is perfect as well. If you play rock and metal and you are truly interested in taking your playing to the next level and are ready to spend a little bit of money on a QUALITY instrument that not only looks great but plays great as well, then you can do no better than the Jackson Dinky DK2M pro series.Get it right now!!

I played this guitar at the music store, and I was not really that impressed. The one thing great about this guitar are its looks. I played the snow white model and it looked outstanding. The binding on the neck really caught my eye. The sound was pretty great too, plugged into a marshall dsl. It sounded like 80's metal, just the way I like it. The overall quality felt low to me. Felt like an overseas piece of junk guitar that will break. The action was high, but the Floyd was properly balanced. despite being set up properly, the Floyd stayed in tune horribly when you use it. Overall for the price, its not bad, but expect to get what you pay for!

I bought this guitar mainly because it had all the features I wanted and was affordable. Has the floating locking trem, 24 frets, 6 in line tuners, pointy headstock, Duncans, and looks great. I got a great deal on this thing and I'm very impressed by the sound and sustain. With this guitar, you can play pretty much any music on it. I play punk, rock, metal, and alternative and it sounds great for anything. I play it through a Line6 75w combo and it sounds fantastic. Pickups hardly buzz, trem stays in tune, and no flaws in the paint or body. FAST neck and sweet looks. I have the white one. Probably best looking one in my opinion with the maple neck. This thing will not disappoint. Best value and versatility out there for all the features. No complaints and I've played it everyday for three months now. The only adjustments I made were I lowered the action a little, put an extra spring in the trem block, and adjusted the pickup height. You will impress ppl with this thing too. Rock on!
I picked one of these up in the Eerie Dess Swirl paint job about 6 months ago and have loved it ever since. The neck is amazing, you cant beat the maple. The whammy bar does a good job of keeping the thing in tune. Overall its a really good guitar and a great value.
I have had mine for over 7 months now and it is AWESOME. It has a great sound and a great sustain. This guitar has turned me into a huge Duncan fan. It's relatively light and has an amazing neck. The tremolo is great: I regularly throw it into the air by the bar and it always works great and stays in tune. If you're going to get this guitar, get it in white, because with the maple neck, it's absolutely GORGEOUS. Like all Jacksons, (in my opinion), it looks very metal, so that could be a pro or con depending on what you play. If you are thinking about getting a superstrat, go for this or the DK2, because they're both better than anything else in the price range. Rock on!
I picked up the white DKM2 pictured here afer owning both a KE3 and RR3, as well as a Dinky DKHMZ. The white one smokes them all, and has become my main stage guitar. I liked it so much, in fact, I went out and picked up a black one just like it, which is my drop-D ride. They always stay in tune, and take the abuse I dish out to 'em, I play HARD! The way it feels, sounds and plays, make this a top line guitar for an affordable price. Jackson does it again!
The volume knob is too close to the bridge pickup that makes accidental collision of finger with the knob.The bridge is a little bit hard to operate as compared to the Jackson Rhandy Rhoads Pro which is only a little more than this one. Strings are cool but they would be better in their little bit relaxed way. Nothing is sent along with guitar. Not even a plectrum. I was hoping for a warranty card and other operating guide but I received only guitar. The volume and tone controllers are poorly fitted. They tend to get loose with even a soft impact. But its a good guitar that suits your value. If you can't go for Soloist, go for dinky......
I have been a gigging musician for over 20 years. Over the years I've had a lot of cool guitars. This guitar fits right in. I got this Dinky Pro and I'll tell you -it ROCKS! I run a very saturated tone and the highs still ring through. Roll back the volume knob a bit and it sweetens right up. Intonation....perfect, action.... ultra low, sustain....killer! Holds tune great even when punishing the bar and it plays like a dream. Gotta be the best guitar I've ever owned in this price range. I cover material anywhere from Hendrix to Metallica and this guitar does it all. Buy it!
I have the snow white guitar and it rocks. The neck is fast and smooth. The pickups are great, well duh they are Seymore Duncans, great clean and with distortion. The floyd rose is fun to play around with though it makes tuning the guitar a pain and restringing it even worse, but the locking nut keeps the guitar in tune so it makes up for the hassle. The only complaint I have is that it has a bolt-on neck so making use of the 24th fret can be difficult. I don't recommend trying to use this guitar in anything but standard tuning or drop d sense the bridge will sink into the guitar and you will have to adjust the bridge to get it back into the original position.
I got my Jackson DK2M in Snow White. It is, far and away, the best guitar I own. I have several vintage Charvels, several Jacksons, an Ibanez, a Les Paul Custom, and a Fender Strat. My Snow White dominates them all...across the board...from looks, to sound, to playability...it is simply the best. The only way you could make it better would be to add a third pickup and turn the 3-way switch to 5-way. If you have a chance to pick one of these up, you will not regret it. The Japanese factory that has been making these for years has got it down: I hope FMIC doesn't change that, now that they own Jackson. If you are willing to spend $$$ on a MIM Fender, you're a fool not to get this guitar for less!!!
There's a reason I'm restating what 200+ people have already said about this guitar, and that is that Jackson put out a fine, fine product with this guitar, and I feel obligated to give them credit.Set this guitar up properly, and it will blow your mind. Sounds great (unless you're looking for extreme metal sounds), looks great (unless you're looking for 'subtle'), and with the quality FR-licensed trem, stays in tune through several rounds of "Satch Boogie." A lot of people 'hate' FR trems - I know, I was one of them - but I honestly believe that this is mostly due to poor-quality knockoffs and a lack of proper setup. Also, with the thin (and super-comfortable) neck of the DK2M, I've noticed that I need to routinely check the guitar's setup during seasonal changes. This, in my opinion, is a small price to pay for a guitar that is truly, truly fast and comfortable.The DK2M is a quality instrument that won't let you down if you take care of it.
When i say the perfect guitar, I mean it, This guitar can play any genre of music and sound amazing, the maple fretboard is great for furious fast riffs and perfect for jazz and classic rock songs, i can go straight from shredding some killswitch engage to rocking out to some ac/dc. anything you want to play, this guitar will deleiver, the SD pickups compliment the jackson like peanut butter does to jelly, corny yes, but so true, i would choose this over a les paul anyday, and the floyd rose system gives you great opportunities for solos, effects, divebombs, etc, I love this guitar i recommend the inferno red, the picture does not justify the beauty of this baby, But in conclusion, this guitar could cost a $1000 and still be worth every penny, So if your thinking about buying it, dont hesitate, i promise you will not be dissapointed
