One of the world's hottest bodies with unique cosmetics and crankin' EMG humbuckers!
The carved alder body of the Jackson DXMGT-SP HT DINKY Electric Guitar with its flamed maple top is super lightweight with deep cutaways for infinite access to the 24 jumbo frets on a bound rosewood fretboard with sharp sharktooth inlays. The string-thru body and tight fit of the bolt-on maple neck provides singing resonance for great sustain. EMG humbuckers are unmatched for joining biting high-end with devastating crunch and full-bodied lead tones.
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!

I had prepared myself for a decent, quality instrument, but nothing that would have blown my socks of as the Jackson DXMGT Dinky has. The neck shape is a work of art - not to thin as to cause you had to ache like a certain brand that starts with "I", but not at all bulk and hard to navigate like a certain brand that starts with "G". Almost as if it was form-fitted to your hand.The combination of tone woods and EMG passive pickups give this guitar a very clean, crisp sound with just enough bass to sound full but not piss off your bassist. This mix makes for some of the best clean tones I've heard, whether for traditional "clean" guitar lines or skanky reggae up-stroked chords. It also allows the distortion YOU choose to shine through clear as a bell - it's almost as if it's a blank slate tonally, but not to worry - there's more than enough personality inside.The hardware is sturdy and no-nonsense: the tuners easily hold a 2+ step bend in pitch, and the combination of a tune-o-matic bridge and string-though-body allows the guitar's natural tone to come though as opposed to tremolo-equiped guitars which are coupled to the body by a mere two studs. This also allows re-stringing to alternate tunings much more easily, with only a tiny shifting of the neck - try THAT with a Floyd-equiped guitar. Better yet, don't: you'll likely have the bridge fall off the studs.As this price the DXMGT is a steal, and purchasing *two* should be a possibility. Rarely do deal of this calibre come along, and when they do you should jump on them. For an alternate or detuned guitar, for a onstage backup, this is literally too good to pass by.
I got this guitar as a step up from my starter. After 5 years of a squier, I decided I needed something better for playing live. This guitar is simply great. The neck is somewhat thin and very fast. It has a plastic binding between the maple and the rosewood fretboard that really puts it over the top. The tuners do their job. The EMG's are really nice as well. Incredible distorted sound and a suprisingly nice clean sound as well.The only problem with mine is the 13th fret. The 13th fret give a horrible clangy sound that lasts for about a second and then gives out. Since I mostly play in E and G, this is alright, but it is still a noteable flaw. Other than that, Incredible right down to the finish.
This guitar is okay for its price. For me, the HZs did not do it, but then again I have 2 other guitars with EMG 81 85 combos. If you can afford the extra 100$ for a guitar with the 81/85 do it, it is much worth it. The neck is smoothe and plays great, the tuners are good but not grovers. It is a Jackson so you know it is built solid. The guitar needs a little more tone variaty to it but this may be taken care of if it did not have HZs. If you love the look and are short on money buy this guitar, but if you want a great playability and tonal guitar and are low on green buy the Schecter Omen 6 for only $299.
I got this guitar, and couldn't be happier. Its a great deal for the price. My only complaint is the knob on the volume control wont stay on, haha.
There isn?t any way to beat this deal! I have owned Gibson, Ibanez, ESP, etc. and none of them came close to what this guitar can do especially for the price. I was expecting to use this as a backup guitar but after I played it I decided very quickly that it is my main guitar. I didn?t think a guitar at this price no matter what name brand would have the looks, sound, and playability as this one does. The pictures do not show how gorgeous the flame top and color really are! If you are into metal than this guitar is a must buy for you. Talk is cheap so try one if you can and decide for yourself. You shouldn?t be disappointed.
I picked this up from guitar center and have been playing it for about 6 months. I couldn't have asked for a better guitar for the price. I played strats, epiphones, and ibanez all in the price range. This guitar felt the best,it was the most balanced, and had the most tone ability. I reccomend this guitar if you are looking for something that really rips.
I am a incredible shredder, and this guitar gives new life and speed to my hands. First of, the tuners are fine, I haven't had any problems thus far. The neck seems like it's a cross between a Strat "C" neck and an Ibanez Wizard Neck. You get the best of both worlds. The comfort and playability of the "C" neck with the blazing speed of the Wizard. The Fretboard is nice (I prefer maple myself, but the rosewood is fine) and the inlays scream metal. The body is beautiful and the flamed top is gorgeous. As far a sonics go. Average. I like the sound of the neck pickup...as it's smooth but not muddy, but I switched the bridge for something MUCH more hot. (a Seymour Duncan SH-6). Overall a great guitar....and for this price...it's a shredders dream!!! BUY IT NOW!!!!!
This guitar is a beast for the guitarist on a budget. I recommend switching out the pickups and Tuners(Try Grover Locking). This amazing axe has proven to be dependable and trustworthy many a trip and show. It compliments my sound when I want something other than my 3 Les Pauls.
I just got this baby yesterday and wow it blew my mind. As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be mine. This machine can really shred! I love it.
I bought this guitar as a backup. I have to say, this was way better than I expected it to be. The neck is perfect, it's lightweight. The pickups aren't that hot. I plan to switch them out for an 81/85 combo. Awesome guitar for the price.
