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!

Jackson DK2M

By EDS jackson

from Dayton OH

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.

5.0 all the way around

By Jmo ~ Sinnergy

from Portland, OR

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!


So So

I have had this guitar for 6 months and like others have said its ...ok. To be honest I was geeked to get my first Jackson...after playing it, I actually prefer my Ibanez Series, but thats just me. I cant beat the price on this,as it was given to me.

Wow...that's what I said when I first sat down and played this guitar . This guitar has boosted my confidence as a guitarist greatly, although I still can't hit those Jason Becker sweeps & shreds ha! But I can tell you that this guitar is one of the most versatile guitars I have ever played. You can go from neo-classical to metal in the blink of an eye. The crunch is amazing. Even playing through an 8 watt amp sounds awesome. The first thing I played on this guitar was the solo to "Floods" by Pantera (R.I.P. Dime) and this thing sang the harmonics like a crying child. Almost brought tears to my eyes. Most importantly, I don't see how anyone could be disappointed with this guitar because of it's playability and versatility. It looks awesome, plays awesome, sounds awesome, stays in tune, (I had to re-tune a couple of times when in drop C) but it is just all around a great guitar. The only problem I have found is that tuning takes just a little while longer with the locking nut and changing strings could be a pain if you don't know what you are doing lol. All in all, I am more than delighted to have this guitar and I'm extremely grateful to own it. Try it out and I'll be willing to bet you'll feel the same way.. :)

Lets start this off with me old fellings....I HATED JACKSONS. Every single one of these i played has me disapointed and looking for an ibanez.But this amazing. Now I'm not the 'best' guitar player but I was pulling off sweeps and taps I had only dreamed about. the picups are clear, the neck is smooth, long sweet sustain and an amazing whammy bar makes this my favorite guitar. This guitar changed my views of jacksons entierly

The paper-thin compound radius neck is classic Jackson: ideal for shred-oriented licks and runs. The Seymour Duncan pickups are high output, highly responsive, and harmonically rich. The thin alder body combined with a maple fretboard yield bright, snappy tonality. The low-profile Floyd Rose double locking tremolo is comfortable for the picking hand. My only drawback on this axe is that it doesn't possess as much bottom-end chunk as a few other guitars.

Hello guitar players,If u r looking for a nice guitar with a little money paid in it this is ur guitar,This is a gr8 guitar,Very good sustain,and by the way the pickups in it are Original seymour duncans and not duncan designed as written here, pick ups are gr8, the best thing in this guitar is the neck so fast for shredders(Coz maple fretboard is better than rosewood coz it is more smoother)get it u wont loose ur money.If u need more info contact me on my email.


For All You Fender Lovers

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Every one that loves Fender guitars but wants something that plays like a Fender but sounds alot heavier on the gainy side. This guitar makes solid state amps sound like its a heavy duty tube amp. I am picking this one up this evening hopefully. The SD Pups in this baby really bring out the squeeling end of the spectrum. I have looked far for a heavier guitar with a maple fretboard and here it is. Once i played this guitar i have decided to mostly play maple fretboards. All the frets are punched in really good and the shark tooth fret markers are amazing!!!!. The jackson headstock is always a looker. stays in tune really well. the floyd rose really adds a great amount of help to every one who love dive bombing.


A good shredder's guitar

By mtlmarksmith

It has good low action, good tonewood, and good pickups. The maple fretboard really tightens up the tone-not as much crunch as my esp, but the mid and high end is great (like I said, for shredding). Overall a good mid-priced import guitar for Rock and metal (more standard metal and rock than death metal). It is well put together as far as the quality goes, should last a while.

I was lookin at this guitar for a bit and finally got to play one at my local music store. This guitar rocks!Its especially good for metal and hard rock stuff like that. But you can also play other stuff too,the one I played was in the white finnish it played incredibly,it has all the features(floyd rose,24 frets,duel seymours, volume and tone knobs, etc)and for the price you cant go wrong.I'm definatly gettin one soon and its good for intermediate players to pros. So I can't wait to get mine.
