Jackson's dinky body style is world famous for very good reasons -- it's light, comfortable, and very fast looking. The 2008 Jackson MG Series DKMG Dinky Electric Guitar sports the trademark Jackson reverse pointy headstock and EMG HZ humbuckers to deliver super-modern looks and harmonic-rich tones to match. Luxurious touches include shark-tooth fretboard inlays and bound fretboard and headstock. 24 jumbo frets and a Floyd Rose-licensed Jackson recessed double-locking 2-point vibrato.
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 is a fantastic guitar. I bought one two months ago and played 10 other guitars heads up with this one (includong a Jackson Pro model and a few different Fender Strats) and this guitar had the best tone and FEEL of any of them. The only reason I gave it less than 5 for features is that as it ships it only has one battery (EMG recommends 2 for better response and more headroom on the pickups, I installed the second and it ROCKS, these pickups lose some of that EMG oversaturation on the low end and do become much crisper). And also (I am talking EMG active...not Hz...mine has the Zack Wylde set...85/81...I believe all new DKMG's are active) I also discovered that if you like the sound of Duncan Humbuckers (or a strat with single coils) that if you reverse the pickups position (81 at neck and 85 at bridge) these pickups take on the sound of a more standard set (with better output and string definition). That is to say they act more tonally like a gibson or Strat with the typical lead sound and rhythm sound and the middle position even takes on the more high end tinny characteristic of a more standard set of pickups. For those that enjoy older types of rock this configuration is probably best but I love it the way it ships (you DO NOT get this type of tonal range from any other pickup set I have used). The Floyd Rose is a dream and once set up correctly NEVER needs to be tuned except for occasional adjustments due to humidity and temperature variations. Rock solid construction and even though Japanese (you can find evidence of mass production if you look hard enough) really has the look and feel of a much more expensive guitar (if you don't lift the covers...that is where you find dust that wasn't blown off in the construction...or painted in to the unfinished surfaces). All in all a must buy for anyone that wants a pro look and feel for a semi-pro price.

This guitar has a cool body shape but the quality isnt good. First of all the floyd rose does Not have the best quality. You dive it down a couple of times and its already out of tune, and the strings arent even new.Second,its a bolt on something I completeley dislike because of that "big block" that keeps you from better fret access.Its not like the ibanez bolt on which is an AANJ(all acces neck joint)that's actually almost the same as a neck through,its more of like a fender strat bolt which is just square and annoyingThird finally but not least the DAMN PICKUPS.oh my god they are the muddiest pickups I have heard and that completeley annoys me. My esp ltd m-50(my first guitar) which costs about half the price has a better sound than this piece of crap.And its not my amp because i run my guitars through a line 6 spider 3 75w amp which has a great sound.Ive tried it through a cheap 15w amp i have and still my esp ltd sounded a helluva a lot better,I mean the difference is huge.Definitely not worth the money,way overpriced for the quality,I recommend that you go with Esp ltd ,schecter,or ibanez for the same price.

Great Guitar For the Price! Have not put it down since i got it, Pickups sound great thinking about switching them to an 81/85 combo though. Tremlo is great never really throws the guitar out of tune, however is extremly time consuming to change...Other than that its a great guitar for the price and come on its a jackson!
This the the best bang for your buck. I have had this guitar for 2 years now and she is still kick'n BUTT! I did change out the pickups for something more high gain a year later, in the bridge I installed a Seymour Duncan Dimebucker and in the neck a Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model. In the last 6 months I also installed a 5-way switch instead of the 3 way which gives you 2 extra choices and at position 4 you get the Dimebucker split which is cool and at position 5 you get the bridge pickup with the neck split. I got the diagram off of Seymour Duncan's website. Everyone who checks out this guitar cannot believe how well it is made for being a less expensive Jackson. I agree with them all it is really one of the best Jacksons made right now on the market. Its a well made Japanese Jackson guitar. At least mine was made there! If you want a great guitar at a sweet price I would recommend this one without hesitation! This is your METAL now pick it up!
Well, I obtained this guitar from a friend in need of having the guitar set up as it acquired a problem with the locking nut. Being a die-hard Jackson enthusiast for 20 years, I opted to trade him an Ibinez RG Series for this axe. :)As I've come to expect from Jackson's bolt-on guitars, this one is no dissappointment either, nice features, comfortable, and lightning fast neck, and even what I'd call "special" features for a guitar this price with the HZ EMGs and neck binding/inlays are all flawless.Back to the locking nut issue - what happened is, and is common with these licensed floyd rose tremolos, the two screws that attach the metal nut to the neck wood stripped out ever so slightly, yielding flex when string tension would vary, as such with using the tremolo or unison bends etc. Problem solved with very slightly larger machine screws, no drilling required. I play this guitar at band open mic nights and will consider gigging with it, very nice guitar for the price - as expected from Jackson.
I am a 14 year-old musician, and I received this guitar for Christmas. I am amazed at how good a guitar this is. The Floyd Rose is great, the EMG's work fine, and the 24 frets are fast. Only one warning, if you have never owned a Floyd Rose guitar, I would get help using it correctly and tuning it. Overall A+.
I bought this guitar a couple of weeks ago. The neck is really fast, and the Emg's dont sound bad at all. The floyd is nice and the guitar stays in tune, and it looks cool. This guitar is all of what you pay for and more!! I highly recommend this guitar to any foo looking to play anything from grindcore to punk rock.
This guitar kicks a**. i want to guitar center and i tried about 5 other guitars before pivking this one. Great quaility, nice pick-ups, and a fast neck. i would recommend this to any metalhead looking to upgrade.
I've been playing guitar for about 3 years. Just last summer I bought the Jackson MG Series DXMG Dinky Electric Guitar, and I must say, Beautiful! This guitar is a fast, and smooth beast. the features are great with the 3 position selector, you can get a great lead, or rytm sound. The quality is superb! beautiful body design and the reverse headstock is a beut. The Floyd Rose is awesome! And the tuner locks help alot. overall I say buy it! the value is top notch for the price!!! /m/
First off, this guitar is amazing! Its very fast, the neck is thin as my thumb. The whammy slot has a lock, so it doesn't ever fall out. I used to own an Ibanez and the whammy bar always fell out when I bent over. It plays very smooth, and the pickups are great, but they're not the best, I will eventually have them switched!It sounds great even through a poor amp, like a Kustom RC! Over all, when you buy this guitar, it will blow you away! For me, I favor this guitar over a Strat, Les Paul, Schector Damian or even a Flying V! ;)
I have been playing guitar for 30 years now and I thought I would buy a cheap metal guitar. This guitar is Amazing for the price. It looks cool, it sounds good, it feels good, over all I say its a good guitar. I own a Dean Razor back, an Ibanez XIPHOS, and a schecter Fr damien and the other guitars dont match to the quallity and the pure power of the Jackson. If you want a pure Rock/Metal guitar this guitar is the way to go.
I have owned the Jackson MG DXMG Dinky for a few months now and I am already bored with it. It was good at first but then I realized its an average sounding and feeling metal guitar. I would definitely suggest a Schecter instead.
