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

If you are thinking about getting this instrument, go ahead! I didn't buy this from MF but I wanted to throw another positive review on the pile.

This guitar is light, yet solid. I got this guitar to play while at work (one I don't need to worry about knocking around) and replaced the bridge pickup with a Dimarzio Super Distortion 7 (a beastly yet underrated 7 string passive). I decided to keep the neck pup, it sounds exactly how I would want it to, surprisingly enough!

My only complaint is that the one piece neck is vulnerable to movement with weather change but what do you expect for the price, a maple/walnut laminate? Just keep your included 4mm allen wrench handy to adjust the truss rod once in a while and you couldn't be better off!

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

Much better than you might expect for the price. The neck feels good, very thin and easy to play. The body is a basswood body with a mile of satin poly on it, so basically it does the job and is light. The pickups are pretty bad, but can easily be changed, and the best part is that this guitar is nice enough that you wont feel like you are wasting money doing it. Easily the best entry level 7, by far and away. Probably one of the better mod platforms for more serious users as well.

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

For such a cheap guitar, the JS22-7 feels, plays and looks amazing. Straight out of the box, everything was great aside from needing to be tuned. The pickups aren't perfect, but they're more than you'd expect from a 200 dol1ar guitar. The strings are a bit floppy and should be replaced with thicker ones, but that's not a big deal. The only other thing that needs work are the pots. They work great, but are a bit floppy. For any guitarist that needs a 7th string, this is a great starter, or could be upgraded and be gig worthy.

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

    I bought this guitar about a month ago and its perfect. It has a slim fast neck, the stock pick ups are good, not great but they work, it's super light due to the Basswood construction, the scale length helps with low tunings, I play in drop G. The only con I have is the stock strings, I replaced them with a set of Dunlop Heaveycore 10-60's, and now it holds tuning beautifully. definately buy this guitar if you want a cheap 7.

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

    At first glance I thought this guitar was awesome. After my initial use I thought it was complete garbage. After some truss rod adjustment and setup, it plays pretty decent. While I did not expect a guitar at this price point to come setup very well, I did not expect to make a truss rod adjustment from the factory. Now the guitar plays quite well, but could use some mew electronics, pickups and pots included. I am currently unable to get the guitar professionally setup or replace the electronics due to being in a remote area, but I am sure both of these will make a dramatic improvement over the stock setup. When I get back home I will get the setup done, but that is a few months away.

    I would recommend this to a friend, especially given the price point. I have tried other cheap 7 strings, and this one is by far the best after a little setup. The nice fast neck is a breeze to play, and the 16" radius is great for leads and solos on the high frets while not being overly difficult to form chords on the lower frets. The 26.5" scale length is also nice, making it easier on the really high frets and is excellent for drop tunings.

    Overall this is a great instrument for the price, and for your first 7 string, or even first guitar in general, it would be a great choice. I would buy this as a gift for an aspiring artist to stet out, no questions about it.

    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!
