iamqman's review"No I won't Dinky"

Jackson DK2 Dinky (Before 2006)
I love what Jackson guitars has done with their instruments because they make such great feeling and sounding instruments for the hard rock or an metal player. This guitar is the basic style body which is basically a modern style Fender Stratocaster guitar. It's a cool guitar if you like hard rock and metal because it generates a great tone for someone he's playing a sound that needs that high again heavy saturated ripping tone. This guitar has a nice look and neck with its cool pointed headstock.

UTILIZATION

Jackson DK2 Dinky Electric Guitar Features:

* Alder body with flamed maple top (transparent finishes only)
Made in the Japanese factory that has been making imported Jacksons for 20 years
Rock maple bolt-on neck
Bound rosewood compound-radius fingerboard

24 Jumbo frets
25-1/2" scale
1-11/16" nut
Matching headstock with pinstripe

Sharkfin inlays
Ivoroid binding
Black hardware

Floyd Rose Licensed Jackson Low Profile JT580 LP double-locking 2-Point Tremolo
Includes Deluxe Jackson Molded Case by SKB

SOUNDS


This guitar features a Floyd Rose bridge which is essential for a metal or hard rock player. Yes three pick ups to choose from in this guitar the first to say humbucker pickup in the bridge position and you have a single coil in the middle position and then another single coil in the neck position. This will generate out lot of versatility in the tones that you can achieve. It has a shark fin pearl in lay in the frets and it has a swirl paint job which in my opinion looks kind of stupid.

This is a ripper's guitar and a shredders guitar for sure. It has a nice day neck and a very well-balanced fretboard that allows you to solo very easily. That is one of the good things that this guitar has his ability to feel comfortable going up and down the neck. The frets are very easy to reach as you can imagine most of these guitars to be.

OVERALL OPINION


These guitars are pretty easily to be found in the classifieds and new. You can find them for just a few hundred dollars which is a pretty good price for nine shredding rippers guitar. I recommend this to anyone is looking for a cool guitar that has a lot of versatility and a lot of tone on tap. It's a cool guitar for anyone who plays hard rock or metal and this is guitar and half at a decent price.

Hatsubai's review"Pretty decent quality guitar"

Jackson DK2 Dinky (Before 2006)
This guitar was made in Japan, and for the price that it went for, it wasn't a bad guitar at all. Here are the specs on it:

Alder body with flamed maple top (I believe this was a veneer)
Maple bolt-on neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets
Seymour Duncan STK-1 single-coils and JB TB4 humbucker
Jackson licensed floyd rose
Sharkfin inlays
One volume, one tone and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The guitar didn't have too many issues from what I saw. The absolute worst problem was the bridge. I'm not a fan of 99% of these Jackson bridges out there. There's one of them that's a Schaller clone, but aside from that one, most of them are trash. I recommend replacing it with an original floyd rose to get the most out of the guitar. Aside from that, the frets were pretty good. I could get low action without much of a problem. The neck joint was nice and tight. There wasn't a huge gap, and that's always good to see. The neck itself felt pretty nice; basically a standard Jackson MIJ neck.

SOUNDS

The guitar sounded really good thanks to it having real Seymour Duncan pickups installed in it. The bridge gave it a nice bitey sound. This bridge pickup can really work for nearly any genre you can think of. From fusion to blues to death metal, this pickup really can do it all. Some people hate it because it can be picky depending on how that particular piece of wood sounds, but it's generally a pretty good sounding pickup. The neck singles were really cool. You can get that awesome single coil sound without a problem, and the in between positions were really nice. They worked excellent for clean tones.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a solid Jackson without spending tons of money, check out these guitars. I'd swap out the bridge for an original floyd rose, but aside from that, the guitar is very solid. You don't even need to change out the pickups with this one.

planetslide's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" MIJ = quality"

Jackson DK2 Dinky (Before 2006)
Guitar made in Japan in 1992, Ash body arched top, handle screwed enough Round 22 frets rosewood fingerboard, frets Standard tremolo Schaller licensed Floyd. Mechanical Jackson. Micros original Jackson / Charvel in config MSM (rare), 5-position selector "to strato". A volume and tone.

UTILIZATION

The handle has a round profile and wide enough and is very comfortable. The coating on the handle is amazing quality.
The body is rather small and thin, which makes the guitar very sexy and easy to wear and feel is that of a strat, but without the notch for the forearm.
Access to acute is good without being transcendent (I tasted the handle from driver!), Knowing that stops 22 frets on this guitar. The fingerboard is very good.
The varnish is of a quality that I have rarely seen on a guitar.

SOUNDS

The original sound is not bad but still pretty dirty ... I would have put 5 or 6 of origin.
In fact, this shovel earns a lot to see his microphones upgraded. I ended up a set of Seymour TB6, SSL and SH1 and it became a massacre! With split pickups, it gives a very wide and the violin brings a personality to the whole.
I was amazed that a mid-range guitar like this now so its kind. The guitar took dust and now it rivals in terms of sensations with my other shovels that rate 3-5 times its price.
I play on the ENGL tube and where it excels the most is plain / crunch on all mic positions and saturated neck pickup (Seymour SH1 powaaaah).

OVERALL OPINION

It's been 15 years since I hang this faithful Jackson, she took the loaves, but remained always super reliable. She became a little vintage eighties now and it gives a fiery temperament!
And since the change of microphones, she saw. 24 cases in the same driver would handle close to perfection.
If you see one in passing secondhand, go for it before it is me who takes!
