    I enjoy this guitar a lot!!! I'm going to swap out the stock pickups for some seymour suncans. And also I'm going to put heavier gauge strings on it. Lots of great plans for that guitar. It has a lot of pontential!!!

    Comments about Jackson JS22-7 Dinky DKA 7-String Electric Guitar:

    I wanted to try out a 7 string without spending a ton of money. I looked at a few other entry level 7 string guitars from LTD and Schecter. I went with Jackson and am glad I did. I like the longer scale length, and I love the flat black finish. The body has nice contours and is thinner and lighter than expected. I adjusted the rod slightly, changed strings to 60-10's, did the intonation and it stayed in tune for a good 2 months with very little adjustment and nice low action. The neck is wide but very comfortable and I love the satin finish on the back. I've kept it tuned to AEADGBE and it sounds deep! The only thing I would criticise would be the pickups are muddy, but for the price you can't expect too much from the electronics. The pots and switch are silent so far.
    Overall, for the price, I am very impressed!

      Comments about Jackson JS22-7 Dinky DKA 7-String Electric Guitar:

      This is a great buy if you're new to 7 strings like I am. Nothing too special about the looks, though. Just a super strat w/ a satin finish. Now, the neck feels amazing! If you watched the video in the description it's all true. Great for riffing and playing chords with ease towards the head stock and middle of the fret board and all shred past the 12th fret, which is great for technical/progressive metal. IMO The body feels great compared to a gloss finished body, so satin is the way to go if you want a really smooth surface. It takes a while getting used to the extra string, but after I officially buy this I will be playing it every day! By the way, make sure to buy a good set of strings to go along with this (I suggest D'Addario's) and make sure you get the right gauge, so if I were you (personally speaking to metal heads like myself) I'd take Misha Mansoors approach to stringing 7's. Buy your standard gauge for metal (11-50/12-52) and buy a .62/.64 bass string or just a regular guitar string and you should get that heavy sound you're looking for right away, because this Jackson came loaded with .9-.49 (B being the .49) which are too small for a 7 string making playing on the B a little too hard. (IT GETS FLOPPY!)

      Comments about Jackson JS22-7 Dinky DKA 7-String Electric Guitar:

      So, as I strolled into my local music store, a Fender/Jackson rep was hanging out with the guys. We started talking about amps, guitars, rigs, blah blah. So I asked him about Jacksons 7 string lineup and if there would be anything cheaper than the 399.00 model, as a question and he brought it out from the back and handed it to me. I was seriously intrigued at first glance. Of course, its elegant looking, and very lightweight. I plugged it in to my rig, hotrod deluxe III, Ds2, and WOW, I was shocked and incredibly impressed at first powerchord. Let me say, if you are someone looking to buy a cheap 7 for the first time, like I was, this one is a great way to start yet another unhealthy guitar addiction, as I already have 3 Les Pauls, a custom Warmoth, I've had strats, teles, and played a hand full of other 7s. Trust me when I say, this is the best 7 string for under 800 I've found. This will be a purchase you wont regret, I know that I wont.

        Comments about Jackson JS22-7 Dinky DKA 7-String Electric Guitar:

        I bought this guitar at a local shop after being back ordered for about a month on here. Needless to say, I'm very glad I bought it as soon as I did. For the price, Jackson did not let me down. The stock pick ups sound good for metal, and the cleans are alright as well. Like I said, for the price, it's a wonderful guitar. Personally, the only thing I'd change are the pick-ups. Tuning wise, it's very stable, atleast, mine is. Some people have bad luck and get a poorly crafted guitar. But if you're lucky enough to get this one well built, you definitely will not be disappointed! For my first 7 string, it's an amazing one. The neck feels wonderful, not too wide, nor too narrow. It's very easy to solo on, and rip out some awesome beefy riffs. If you want a seven string fast, but aren't looking to cough up half a grand, look no further. If you're a rookie, and want a 7 string, look no further. BUY IT!
