A beautiful Dinky loaded with DiMarzio pickups and a Floyd Rose tremolo.
The Jackson DKDM Dinky Electric Guitar boasts a gorgeous quilted maple top, a sleek basswood body, and a bolt-on maple neck with a cool reversed headstock. Jackson's 24-fret compound-radius fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut (12") for easy chording and flattens out (16") as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out.
A scalloped heel means unimpeded access to the guitar's upper frets. The Floyd Rose-licensed Jackson low-profile double-locking tremolo bridge gives you the confidence to dip for the low notes or pull up for over-the-top tonal effects without fear of going out of tune. This beautiful Jackson electric guitar is loaded with a Dimarzio Tone Zone humbucking bridge pickup and a Dimarzio Evolution humbucking neck pickup so you get all the rocking tones you need.
Visual touches on the Jackson DKDM-Q include gold hardware, and sharktooth fingerboard inlays. Jackson includes a gig bag with the DKDM-Q Dinky Quilt Top Electric Guitar.
DiMarzio Tone Zone
The vowel-like open wah-wah feel of the PAF Pro and FRED is combined with tremendous midrange and bass for a sound that really kicks hard. Because the lows, mids, and highs are all boosted, using a Tone Zone feels like cranking up an extra set of tone controls. It adds further dimension to the sound of your amp - that elusive edge that can make a good-sounding rig into a great-sounding one. Notes seem to get bigger after they're picked, and burn hard as they sustain. It's the right stuff to wake up your amp. Ballsy, aggressive tone has plenty of drive in all the right frequencies, abundant gain to push preamps and power amps, and sensitivity to pick attack that gets the most out of any style from metal to blues. Hot enough to qualify as a high-output pickup but with a wider dynamic range. Hard picking will produce a lot of power and softer picking will be much cleaner and quieter.
Designed for maximum impact and power—to get a tight, aggressive, loud sound. It incorporates a patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Works in almost all solidbodies and most semi-hollowbodies as well. Though specifically created for Steve Vai's Ibanez Jems, it can add a lot of punch to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars. Makes the lowest notes jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.

I've been playing the guitar for over 35 years, and have not had great experiences with Jackson guitars in the past. Being a hardcore Les Paul player and Gibson fanatic, I bought this guitar primarily for the Floyd Rose tremolo to use on certain parts of certain songs, and after not being impressed with the LP Access, I figured I'd give Jackson another try. Anticipating having to change the pickups, electronics, and having to do a fair amount of neckwork, I opted for this guitar as opposed to a USA Dinky or Soloist.After doing a basic set up when the guitar arrived, I was thoroughly impressed !! The action is fantastic, the neck came with well dressed frets and is really fast. The workmanship is top notch and pics of the finish don't do this guitar justice !!As far as sound goes, I was setting myself up for disappointment..........and was again shocked !! This guitar sounds great !! After adjusting the pickup height a bit I was getting some great overdriven tones from it as well as some of the sweetest clean sounds I've ever heard when using both pickups or just the neck pick up !!This review is based on playing the guitar through a Mesa Roadster, and while it doesn't have the massive sustain of a Les Paul on the overdrive settings, it has a nice crisp sound, with a good amount of sustain. But honestly, the clean sounds just blew me away !! With a bit of delay and chorus, these are some of the best clean sounds I've ever heard !!For this amount of money, I am very impressed to say the least !! However, if you are not comfortable doing your own set-up, I'd recommend having it done by a pro. The tweaks are minor, but they'll make a huge difference !!4.5 stars on features is due to the fact that this a very basic guitar. But I truly can't see how anyone who plays hard rock, rock, heavy blues or old school metal wouldn't like this guitar !! Thanks MF !! and nice work by Jackson !!
