Hot active pups and cool transparent finishes.

EMG-81 and 85 high-output humbuckers produce scorching tone while the compound-radius rosewood fretboard curves dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for wide bends without fretting out. Yank those notes right on up to ecstasy with the recessed-cavity, Floyd Rose-licensed double-locking tremolo system. Includes deluxe Jackson molded case by SKB.

Great Guitar

By fixatedtruth

from California

this guitar is great for all genres and i have owned it for two years now. The only problem i had with it was the cheap rip off floyd rose. if you are like me and you play for hours a day and are agressive and use the floyd rose all of the time, the floyd rose will no longer stay in tune, because of this i had to buy a actual copyrighted floyd rose and install it, in addition i replaced the mounts that hold the pickups because the plastic ones were way to high and got in the way, however, its a great guitar and i will be using it for the rest of my life. great tone especially for the price, well made besides the floyd rose, and stays in tune and it has a amazing fretboard,and it the guitar itself isnt even heavy.

Still going strong after 4 years!

By Jason-gXFpb

from Glendale, Ky.

Thought I would do an update after having this guitar now for a few years - still rocking on! Bottom line, this guitar is a beast and can play just about any style. Sure, it's setup screams "Metal and Hard Rock"... but you can accomplish so much more. Neck is great and smooth and fast - where it really shines is the pickups. Simply put, I just can't find anything better than the EMG 81/85 pups that are in it. They are clean and hot - will push your amp hard but will clean up nicely. Floyd Rose isn't original, but who cares? It floats nice and stays in tune. In four years of HARD playing (I play everything from Metal to Jazz on this thing and it can take a beating) I've only had to replace 1 saddle.. not a big deal at all. Things will wear and that's a given. Fret's and fretboard have held up well... just a great guitar and I love it!

I truly love it. It has an incredible sound clean, and really sounded even more amazing when I cranked up the gain. I have the action set low, and am really able to shred on it. One thing: there is a significant sized spot where the laquer on the neck behind the seventh fret is missing, and it sort of gives it a cool worn look, but still, it was supposed to be new. That made me mad. I never pursued getting a new neck, though I should have. And also, I have the flat black finish, and I think it looks the best, but it shows wear much faster than the gloss finish, and wiping off fingerprints takes more time and effort. I give it a 9.5 out of 10, it rocks.

A beast!

By EFloyd

from Interlachen, FL

This guitar is a workhorse! the emg's sounds great for that high gain metal sound and the neck is nice and smooth. Overall this thing will get the job done and some!

A dinky that's not so dinky!

By MightySumo

from Northwest Indiana

See all my reviews

I've had the DKMG Dinky for about 2 months now, and it's GREAT! The guitar itself is super light and the quilted maple top has to be seen in person, these pictures do not do it justice. I run my Dinky through a Marshall DSL 100 fullstack and the EMGs SCREAM! The licensed floyd rose will not, I repeat, will not come out of tune. I smacked the head/neck area on my car door. Nothing broke, and still perfectly in tune!If you have any apprehension about getting this guitar, JUST DO IT. It's worth it.

not as good as you might think

By RealTalk

from portland OR

At first I was pleased with everything this guitar had to offer, but I was a noob. I might recommend this to a beginner but not for an experienced player. I hadn't realized(being a noob) how low the action was when i recieved it. the floyd rose system keeps it in tune but any use of the whammy will very slightly untune it and the metal will rust easily. the frets are a bit too big for my taste. these emg-hz's are unique to this guitar and, in my opinion, produce cheap quality sound and are too trebley. It produces more of a trebley fuzz rather than good gain. I play through a 100 watt line 6 bogner valve hybrid amp and it takes alot of tweaking on my part to get this guitar to not sound cheap. You may be sold at first, but you will soon be disappointed afterwards. Id say it would be better to spend a few bucks more to buy a USA jackson or a ESP than this guitar.

Amazing Axe!!

By Josh-5PRy4

from chicago

I sold three pieces of equipment to afford a used one. It arrived today, and this is the best instrument I have ever held and played that did not cost over $1000. The craftsmanship and feel of this guitar are phenomenal. I will definitely be a fan of jackson's products for years to come after this playing this guitar. Do yourself a favor and pick one up!
