With EMG pickups.

The Jackson 2008 DKMG Dinky is a rock and roll machine. Carved top alder body, maple neck, compound-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with shark-tooth inlays. EMG 81 and 85 pickups for crunchy rhythm sounds and punchy lead tones. Floyd Rose-licensed double-locking tremolo.

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!

This guitar rocks. Features are great, the only thing is Jackson chose to use one battery instead of two (EMG recommends running the pickups on 18 volts instead of 9, they say for better response. I soldered in a second battery and it vastly improves string definition and eliminates some of the low end over-saturation these pickups can have, without making the output unusable). For those that don't like the Tone of these pickups and prefer the sound of a more traditional set then reverse the setup, put the 85 at the bridge and the 81 at the neck (they take on the charateristic sound of a Gibson or Strat, the saturated rhythm and crisp lead sound with the "tinny" middle position, although personally I prefer the alternative tones that the EMG set offers as shipped, but for those that get this set and wish they behaved a little more traditionally, that is the fix) The Floyd Rose is awesome once set up right and has only been touched since to adjust for temp and humidity. I played this guitar in the music store against two Jackson Pro's (with the hum/single/single Duncans) three Strats and an odd assortment of other guitars and this one stood out hands down for overall tone and feel. In most cases a better than pro guitar for a semi-pro price. It is mass produced and if you take the covers off you can tell they didn't take some time (dust painted into the hidden surfaces instead of being blown off, then painted), but for looks the visible portions are flawless and whatever corners they did cut do not affect the tone or visible look. I have small hands and most guitars are hard to fret cleanly, this one is awesome(and makes me understand the term 'fast'). I have played 22 years and never had the ease of use this one gives me. A Must Buy!!!!

Hello all,Ive been playing guitar about 5 years and i wanted a guitar with a good floyd and of course EMG 81/85 combo. This guitar looked great to me and after reading all the reviews and stuff, i saved up money for it and bought it. When i got it..I wasn't to impressed. Yes, it sounds AMAZING! But, the double locking tremolo only takes you up half a step, theres some foam think that blocks it. I'm sure you could take the foam block out or something, I don't know. But I'm also a new comer to Floyd roses. The horns at the top of the guitar felt and sounded hollow to me..i don't know if Jackson does this on purpose to make the guitar lighter or something I'm not sure. But it annoyed the hell out of me. Another thing that annoyed me..and this might be the fact the neck has 24 frets..but the fretboard went over the body a little bit with no neck underneath it. It's like there was a little ledge/lip hanging over the guitar..and that bugged me. Overall, I believe the true value of this guitar is the EMGs and the Floyd Rose, so in that case I think Jackson just kind of bullshitted the guitar..and didn't make a very good guitar. I sent mine back and ordered an ESP/LTD V-500.

First of all this guitar sucks, sorry I could'nt resist saying that. Second the emg's are no good the floyd is no good every time I use it, it goes right out of tune. Also what really dissapointed me was the price. If ur looking at buying this guitar don't. Buy an Iceman.


Great guitar. More than meets the eye.

Own it for 6 months. Great sound, great action, fast neck. Volume knob a bit in the way but you get used to it. Play 45 to 60 minutes sets and it stays in tune all the way. Great for soloing no matter what you play. Great stage precense too. Mine is tranparent red. It screams rock all the way. I love the neck EMG for open chords style and the Bridge also does a great. You wont be disapointed.

This guitar is by far the best guitar ive ever owned or played. i played some other jacksons at my local music store and wasn't impressed, i hesitated on buying this one at first. When i got it i about screamed! it is beautiful. its neck is perfect. the floyd rose is flawless, the diecast tuners are grets, and it plays and sounds like a dream. if your thinking about buying this dont think twice. just buy it!


Best Guitar I've Had!!

I bought this in Cobalt Blue back when they had the HZ pickups and quickly put in an 81 and 85. I've been through a few Les Pauls, DK2's, Soloists, and more and I've stuck with this one through them all. I'll put it down for awhile to play another, but I always come back and realize what I've been missing.

As soon as a got this guitar I changed the battery and strings. I have B.C. Rich and after playing the Jackson the B.C. Rich feels like a toy. Excellent buy. It came with the tools to change the strings and unlock the the strings but I also got a little wrench. Anyone know what it does?

In the short time I've had this guitar, 1 week, it's blown away all previously owned guitars. Everything gets a 10, looks, action, quality, sound. The 9 is for lack of numbers or dots on the knobs, I just like to know exacts on settings. Otherwise, you can't go wrong here!

I have the older version and my only complaint is the hz pickups but now with the actives....you can't go wrong for a great Japanese crafted guitar.

This guitar is wonderful, the neck is thin and is so easy to shred on. The finish on my cobalt blue is just AMAZING. It changes colors in the light from really dark almost black to a nice light blue with sparkles in the paint. The pickups are excellent they toss out a really nice tone and the licensed floyd rose is FLAWLESS. My guitar has stayed in tune even with brand new strings for over a week with me playing dimebag squeals working the whammy bar like crazy. I high recommend this guitar you cannot find a better guitar for the price, and its a Jackson!


Best guitar I've ever owned...

This guitar is worth every bit of the price tag. It plays like a dream. It looks astonishing. The EMG 81 and 85 are what I have in my other guitars, and this one actually came with them! And the big sell - the thing actually stays in perfect tune when using the tremolo! I play a lot of tunes that you can really yank the bar with - like Judas Priest, Queensryche, Dokken, etc...and to my amazement it was in perfect tune everytime! Quit thinking about it and buy this thing! Wish I wouldn't have thought about it for so long.



By Nate-iGolX

This is a great guitar. The EMGS' kick a**, the floyd rose never goes out of tune. I've has the guitar for about a month and I'm in love with it. My only complaint is the bolt on neck, it makes it harder to reach past the 20th fret, but you get that with any bolt on neck guitar. But besides that, perfect. Gives a great clear tone, and an even better heavy tone. Great guitar for the price, plays way better than other guitars in its price range.
