Unique snow white finish.

The Jackson DK2 Dinky Electric Guitar is the 2008 model and sports a Seymour Duncan JB TB4 humbucker (bridge)and a
Seymour Duncan Jazz SH2N humbucker (neck) mounted on a sleek alder body for plenty of warm, chunky tone. The shred-eriffic rock maple neck sports a bound compound-radius maple fretboard. A scalloped heel means uninhibited access to the upper frets, while a Floyd Rose double-locking trem lets you dive as deep as you want.

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!

    WOW...first off let me state that I have long been a Jackson/Charvel fan. I have owned several different brands of guitars (BC Rich, Fender, Gibson, Dean) and nothing comes close to the quality and playability of a Jackson in my opinion. Now, that being said, I have not always been a fan of the Jackson Dinky line. Fortunately, I had a chance to pick up the new DK2M at a music shop here in town and try it out. First off, the quality of the guitar for the price is PHENOMENAL! The alder body creates a sweet ring on clean notes and a blazing crunch on distorted notes. The neck is nice and fast, and the scalloped body at the end of the neck allows for ultra-easy access to frets 21-24. The guitar comes standard with two Seymour Duncan humbucking pick-ups. A JB in the bridge and a jazz pickup in the neck. The combination of these two create a sweet tone so incredible that you'd have to hear it to believe it. The versatility of this pickup combination in this particular guitar is unlimited. You can play anything from classical to jazz to rock to death metal thanks to these pickups. I bought the snow white edition with the maple fingerboard with black delrin sharkfin inlays and the natural headstock. This guitar offers an extremely unique look and the black binding on the neck and the headstock complete the package.The guitar comes right out of the box in perfect tune and perfectly set up for rock. The action is great and the intonation is perfect as well. If you play rock and metal and you are truly interested in taking your playing to the next level and are ready to spend a little bit of money on a QUALITY instrument that not only looks great but plays great as well, then you can do no better than the Jackson Dinky DK2M pro series.Get it right now!!

    I played this guitar at the music store, and I was not really that impressed. The one thing great about this guitar are its looks. I played the snow white model and it looked outstanding. The binding on the neck really caught my eye. The sound was pretty great too, plugged into a marshall dsl. It sounded like 80's metal, just the way I like it. The overall quality felt low to me. Felt like an overseas piece of junk guitar that will break. The action was high, but the Floyd was properly balanced. despite being set up properly, the Floyd stayed in tune horribly when you use it. Overall for the price, its not bad, but expect to get what you pay for!

    Jackson DK2M

    By EDS jackson

    from Dayton OH

    I picked one of these up in the Eerie Dess Swirl paint job about 6 months ago and have loved it ever since. The neck is amazing, you cant beat the maple. The whammy bar does a good job of keeping the thing in tune. Overall its a really good guitar and a great value.

    5.0 all the way around

    By Jmo ~ Sinnergy

    from Portland, OR

    I picked up the white DKM2 pictured here afer owning both a KE3 and RR3, as well as a Dinky DKHMZ. The white one smokes them all, and has become my main stage guitar. I liked it so much, in fact, I went out and picked up a black one just like it, which is my drop-D ride. They always stay in tune, and take the abuse I dish out to 'em, I play HARD! The way it feels, sounds and plays, make this a top line guitar for an affordable price. Jackson does it again!

    I have had this guitar for 6 months and like others have said its ...ok. To be honest I was geeked to get my first Jackson...after playing it, I actually prefer my Ibanez Series, but thats just me. I cant beat the price on this,as it was given to me.

    Wow...that's what I said when I first sat down and played this guitar . This guitar has boosted my confidence as a guitarist greatly, although I still can't hit those Jason Becker sweeps & shreds ha! But I can tell you that this guitar is one of the most versatile guitars I have ever played. You can go from neo-classical to metal in the blink of an eye. The crunch is amazing. Even playing through an 8 watt amp sounds awesome. The first thing I played on this guitar was the solo to "Floods" by Pantera (R.I.P. Dime) and this thing sang the harmonics like a crying child. Almost brought tears to my eyes. Most importantly, I don't see how anyone could be disappointed with this guitar because of it's playability and versatility. It looks awesome, plays awesome, sounds awesome, stays in tune, (I had to re-tune a couple of times when in drop C) but it is just all around a great guitar. The only problem I have found is that tuning takes just a little while longer with the locking nut and changing strings could be a pain if you don't know what you are doing lol. All in all, I am more than delighted to have this guitar and I'm extremely grateful to own it. Try it out and I'll be willing to bet you'll feel the same way.. :)

    Lets start this off with me old fellings....I HATED JACKSONS. Every single one of these i played has me disapointed and looking for an ibanez.But this amazing. Now I'm not the 'best' guitar player but I was pulling off sweeps and taps I had only dreamed about. the picups are clear, the neck is smooth, long sweet sustain and an amazing whammy bar makes this my favorite guitar. This guitar changed my views of jacksons entierly

    The paper-thin compound radius neck is classic Jackson: ideal for shred-oriented licks and runs. The Seymour Duncan pickups are high output, highly responsive, and harmonically rich. The thin alder body combined with a maple fretboard yield bright, snappy tonality. The low-profile Floyd Rose double locking tremolo is comfortable for the picking hand. My only drawback on this axe is that it doesn't possess as much bottom-end chunk as a few other guitars.

    Hello guitar players,If u r looking for a nice guitar with a little money paid in it this is ur guitar,This is a gr8 guitar,Very good sustain,and by the way the pickups in it are Original seymour duncans and not duncan designed as written here, pick ups are gr8, the best thing in this guitar is the neck so fast for shredders(Coz maple fretboard is better than rosewood coz it is more smoother)get it u wont loose ur money.If u need more info contact me on my email.


    For All You Fender Lovers

    By Anonymous

    Every one that loves Fender guitars but wants something that plays like a Fender but sounds alot heavier on the gainy side. This guitar makes solid state amps sound like its a heavy duty tube amp. I am picking this one up this evening hopefully. The SD Pups in this baby really bring out the squeeling end of the spectrum. I have looked far for a heavier guitar with a maple fretboard and here it is. Once i played this guitar i have decided to mostly play maple fretboards. All the frets are punched in really good and the shark tooth fret markers are amazing!!!!. The jackson headstock is always a looker. stays in tune really well. the floyd rose really adds a great amount of help to every one who love dive bombing.


    A good shredder's guitar

    By mtlmarksmith

    It has good low action, good tonewood, and good pickups. The maple fretboard really tightens up the tone-not as much crunch as my esp, but the mid and high end is great (like I said, for shredding). Overall a good mid-priced import guitar for Rock and metal (more standard metal and rock than death metal). It is well put together as far as the quality goes, should last a while.

    I was lookin at this guitar for a bit and finally got to play one at my local music store. This guitar rocks!Its especially good for metal and hard rock stuff like that. But you can also play other stuff too,the one I played was in the white finnish it played incredibly,it has all the features(floyd rose,24 frets,duel seymours, volume and tone knobs, etc)and for the price you cant go wrong.I'm definatly gettin one soon and its good for intermediate players to pros. So I can't wait to get mine.


    Great Instrument

    By thispedalisnotbad7

    from Lafayette, Louisiana

    I have to start out by saying all Jacksons are well made, even the lower-priced ones. Now, I do not own this guitar, however one of my good friends got one for Christmas and I could not stop playing it. I am not a "metalhead" but I do listen to some metal, but blues and classic rock, also. This guitar is amazing, hot pickups, great floyd rose, smooth, thin neck. However, the only things I do not like are because of personal preferance. I wish there were more colors, like the "erie swirl" and etc. Also, the pointed headstock isn't too soft-looking, so people do not see it as a "classic" guitar. The last thing I do not like is the fact that changing the tuning is a HUGE pain because setting up the trem takes a while. Other than that, it is amazing.


    Amazing guitar

    By JacksonMan-224_-

    from Montreal, Canada

    I bought my DK2M in transparent black about 6 months ago and it was definitely one of the best purchases I've made. I have not had a single complaint about this guitar since I bought it, it came set up perfectly. The intonation is about as good as it gets without getting a Buzz Feiten tuning system and the Floyd Rose stays in tune very well, and I'm a player who makes *alot* of use of the whammy bar. It doesn't pull upwards to high for pitch raising but its not really that big of an issue unless you absolutely need to do some Vai-esque tricks or whatnot. The pickups are nice and hot, I actually replaced the bridge JB with a Duncan EVH and put the JB in the neck position, the JB had a great tone in the bridge though. The Jazz is a pretty good pickup too but I found myself using it mostly in conjunction with the JB and only for clean playing. It had a nice dirty tone though. Definitely a great deal for a great guitar that can compete with most guitars worth $2000 more.

    I recently purchased one of these guitars with the cosmic swirl paint. I am absolutly in love with it. For the money this in my opinion is one of the greatest deals on the market today. This guitar is great for blazing leads and heavy low end. for quality its pretty good, mine had one fret edge stickin off, but other than that it was fine. Now its perfect. I like the stock seymour duncans but put in dimebucker in the bridge and now it screams. only way it could be better is with a neckthrough body:) the floyd goes up and down smoothly, stays in tune forever and the locking collar on the whammy bar is a great feature. Best value for the money anywhere, I Love jacksons, and this ones no different


    great guitar!

    I bought this guitar at most a year ago, and it is still my favorite guitar! My only issue with it was the Seymour Duncan pickups, but I replaced those with some EMGs, and that solved the tone issue. The neck is fast, the scalloped heel/neck joint improves access, and the Floyd Rose stays in tune well. I love it!


    If your new to guitar playing....

    I had this guitar and got rid of it as soon as I possibly could. This guitar cant hold sustain against a $5 guitar from Mexico. The paint job is horrible where the neck bolts on, and every deep dive I took on the non o.g floyd knocked it out of tune.


    The Perfect Guitar

    By KillswitchChaos

    from Fayetteville, NC

    When i say the perfect guitar, I mean it, This guitar can play any genre of music and sound amazing, the maple fretboard is great for furious fast riffs and perfect for jazz and classic rock songs, i can go straight from shredding some killswitch engage to rocking out to some ac/dc. anything you want to play, this guitar will deleiver, the SD pickups compliment the jackson like peanut butter does to jelly, corny yes, but so true, i would choose this over a les paul anyday, and the floyd rose system gives you great opportunities for solos, effects, divebombs, etc, I love this guitar i recommend the inferno red, the picture does not justify the beauty of this baby, But in conclusion, this guitar could cost a $1000 and still be worth every penny, So if your thinking about buying it, dont hesitate, i promise you will not be dissapointed


    Great guitar

    By G-riff

    from Encinitas, CA

    Great guitar for a good price. Plays well, only minor set up was needed. Smooth, thin, fast neck, and a relativly light weight body. good simple layout and hardware, I changed the seymour duncans in favor of a EMG Zakk Wylde set, but only because my band tunes to drop B. the floyd rose licensed trem stays in tune very well when set up properly. GOOD BUY!


    Great Guitar

    So I picked this guitar up today and loved the snow white finish. I got it home and within 1 hour i had everything changed and set up for the show. It played very well at the show, the seymour duncans sounded amazing, and the floyd rose kept the guitar in tune perfectly through the entire show. Just one tip, if you use heavier string guages pick up an extra tremolo spring and add it to the back. But seriously buy this guitar, its amazing!



    By mozartkid90

    from TN

    i got mine back about 18 months ago.I wanted to buy a ibanez that i could afford, but i picked this STRONGLY above the others. I paid almost $700 for mine i strongly suggest for the price that anyone who wants a versatile, overall great guitar buy it.The floyd never gives, ever and the neck.... man it never slows down i love the maple its astounding.The only complaints are:1.9's are the only option without re-setting up the guitar2.Drop d and half step down are the only option without re-setting up the guitar.musicians friend is letting you steal from them!!!!!my friend owns a $1,800 charvel and likes mine better hahahahaha!!!!!!!


    phenomenal guitar for METAL!!!

    By Guitar maniac 9000

    from wolf creek

    I played This guitar at the local guitar center and I have to say it was amazing. The neck was insanely smooth and fast! Great for shreding! The double locking tremolo was sweet too. Did I mention it sounded amazing too! I can't wait to get one for my own.
