2 octaves per string give you worlds of shredability.

The JS22R guitar gives you smooth, lightning-fast playability and signature heavy Jackson tone in classic Dinky form, with dual high-output humbucking pickups, reverse headstock, and a fulcrum tremolo bridge.

This Jackson Dinky electric guitar is part of Jackson's entry-level JS Series. This series features super-affordable takes on classic and instantly recognizable Jackson guitars, all built without compromising all-important tone and playability. All guitars including the Jackson JS22R Dinky feature the 24-fret compound-radius necks and shark fin inlays beloved of Jackson shredders worldwide.

Compound Radius Fingerboard
A feature unique to Jackson that lets you shred like no other. Rounder near the nut “ perfect for fingering crushing chords and deadly riffs. Then, as you climb the neck, the fingerboard flattens out, making it perfect for effortless warp-speed shredding and the widest string bends known to man.

24 Jumbo Frets
Superbly finished and easily accessible on all models. When combined with the compound radius fingerboard, this feature ensures effortless string bending and super-fast shredding all the way up to the 24th fret.

High-Output, Custom-Voiced Covered Jackson Pickups
Painstakingly voiced for full, rich tone while providing maximum overdrive and sustain. These bad boys also clean up nicely when rolled back, which isnt always true of high-output pickups.

Great Guitar

By Ksgtrpkr

Ask me a question

I'm almost 50 years old, I have been playing for 38 years now and have experienced many guitars. I am primarily a Telecaster guy, But a friend had one of these he was selling for $100.00 for his nephew. The JS22R I bought was one of the older models without the shark fin inlays and graphite nut. It has simple white dots and had a plastic nut which was terrible. I bought it because it was something that looks different from anything else I own and decided I could make some adjustments on it and just sell it if I decided I really didn't like it. I put a bone nut on it, did a fret level, sprayed some lubricant/cleaner in the pots and switch and shielded the electronics cavity. I put on some new strings and gave it a work out. I 'm no shreder by any means, but the neck is fantastic and the pickups really blew me away. These are really some great pickups for a stock guitar in any price range. They were loud, responsive, full, warm, had some great grit and cleaned up to a nice jazzy chime. I scrapped the idea immediately that I would need to replace them as well as the pots and switch. No need, it all sounded fantastic. I am very impressed that a guitar that sells new at this price could be this good. I took it to our next show for my Country Cover band and got some strange looks and a few unflattering comments when I took it out of the case. I broke into some George Strait and then some Jason Aldean licks however and their looks went from laughter to "oh my God smiles" and a little shock. I played the thing all night and covered everything from Alabama, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard to ZZ Top. At the end of the night our other two guitar players had to give it a try. (I think I sold two more of them for Musiciansfriend) I'm sure if this guitar is this good for this price range, then Jacksons in the higher dollar range must be phenominal players. I may just have to get on Musiciansfriend and try one of those out
I based this rating on the guitar for the money spent. For a budget level guitar the hardware, heads and bridge are great, although the springs are quite stiff. I bought an older one which had a plastic nut. The nut was cheap plastic and the slots were cut way to low. The newer ones with the graphite nuts may be much better. Overall though for the money this guitar is a great value.
I was very impressed with the neck on this guitar. Great neck and neck to body fit for any guitar. The pickups were also very suprising they sound warm, have some guts and respond very well to different picking styles and attacks. I'm sure that the more expensive models with the EMG's have a lot more power, but for pickups on a stock guitar these are very good pickups in any price range.
Very Good guitar for the money, I was impressed overall for a guitar at this cost.

My Jackson JS22R Dinky

By Benjamin Green

from SC Sumter

Hi!!! Let me start off by saying I love Jackson guitars. From the Kelley model the king v model the warrior the Dinky and on on and on. I own a black JS22R Dinky. The pick ups are nice! real clean and clear(when using both pick up sound the best to me on clean). With distortion you get, rocking leads and, 24 frets to go with it. The looks are cool. I love the compound-radius fretboard. One thing I did find bad is that my high E 21 and 22 fret was the same note. but, thats just has to do with the one i'v got i'm shure of. It is easy to fix by your self.(if you run in to that). The gig bag is good. metal clips no cheap stuff. good guitar for the price. so if your looking for a guitar that looks good sounds good and you don't have tones of money get the Jackson jS22R.

Jackson JS22R Review

By JacksonAxe900

from West Virginia

I'm a hobbyist and bought this Jackson after reading many reviews and various opinions about it. It has the exact features I was looking for. Shark fin inlays, dual-humbucker pickups, sturdy volume controls, and a thinner neck. The pickups sound great through both a RP-500 and a Orange 15 W amplifier. There is very little buzzing which I corrected with a sting height adjustment. The pickups are suited for metal, classic rock and blues. The looks are sleek and the inlays really set this guitar apart from other guitars in this price range. They do not look cheap! The machine heads are well made and are emblazoned with the Jackson logo. The tremolo is good, it keeps in tune and the whammy bars is nice and thick. It is very heavy-duty and is made to last. The only problem I had with the tremolo is the D string kept going out of tune when I was using a lot of palm muting. This was corrected when I set the bridge height and intonation. The neck is very fast and is tapered for maximum performance. Whether your a hobbyist or gig out a lot, this guitar should be in your arsenal. The only thing I recommend is getting it setup by a professional. Buy this guitar, do not let the cheap price scare you away. Jackson has hit a home-run.

Beautiful Axe

By Wildman-TDaoh

Unless you're a guitar tech, I would opt for a higher end Jackson. Body and neck are nice. I swaped the strings for hybrid slinky's to eliminate some fret buzz. Had to adjust string height, intonation & neck. Sound was a little thin for my taste.Put a Seymour Duncan SH8 in the bridge position. Sounds great coupled with the factory neck pic up. If you can set it up, it's a great guitar..

Excellent Value

By WarInvocator89

from Los Angeles, CA

I just bought this guitar yesterday, and I must admit that it surprised my expectations. I was expecting an inferior sound with mediocre output, since it's in a low price range. But when I plugged in this badboy, it blew my mind.The stock JE10 Humbuckers are surprisingly high output, low noise humbuckers. Metal was in mind when these pickups were designed. Not for Rock, Jazz, or Blues. Frankly, it all depends on the amp you are using. A definite must-have for Beginners, or experienced musicians on a budget. You will be impressed, I can assure you of that.

Mammoth sound in a tiny body

By Tomas Gunn

from Portland, OR

This guitar is awesome. It sounds excellent, with or without distortion. There was some fret buzz on the 6th string, but that's expected with stock strings. I highly recommend this guitar.

It is, what it is!

By RRForever

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

Just like the title reads, it is what it is. This is not a BAD guitar, its just that its definitely a begginers guitar. I bought one when I decided to start playing again....just thought i would have some fun with it. I only had it for a couple months before I got rid of it. It does looks nice, has nice features and plays ok...its just not that high of quality. If you are wanting a guitar for a begginer, this would be a good starting choice, BUT if you are a lil more experienced, you might wanna save a little more money and buy something else....otherwise youre going to end up putting the money into this guitar to get it to sound and play like you want it to.


Not Bad...

By Steven Lewis

from Undisclosed

Like I said before, it's a great guitar for a beginner or for someone looking for a low- priced, quality instrument. I don't pick mine up as much now though, as I recently got a Gibson Flying V, but I think it's a great guitar regardless.
It's only got 1 volume and 1 tone knob, and the pickups aren't that great, but hey, it's an entry level guitar. The neck is awesome and is very shred- friendly. The whammy bar is nice but goes out of tune easily as expected.
It's a solid guitar. I've had mine for about a year now and there's barely a scratch on it. I set my action very low and I have never had an issue with fret buzz or anything.
For the price, it's a great guitar. Anyone who is just learning or just needs a guitar on a budget should put this one into consideration.


Shredders lala land

By JOSH1988

from Las Vegas,NV

I recently bounght this guitar and all i can say is that this guitar has everything a common shredder would want. It has 24 jumbo-frets to crunch down, a tremolo, and 2 naked hummbuckers to give you a raw power sound. And with killer looks like the reversed headstock and the small body, and also a proper amp( I use a Marshall combo amp)this guitar is the full package.
