Hatsubai's review"HSS MIJ Dinky"

Jackson Dinky XL
This is another lower budget model by the Japanese division (when compared to the American division), but it's still a fairly high quality guitar over all, especially considering the price that you get it at. The guitar has the following specs:

Basswood body
Maple bolt-on neck with a rosewood fretboard
24 jumbo frets with sharkfin inlays
Licensed floyd rose
HSS configuration
One volume, one tone
Five way switch

UTILIZATION

The guitar was put together decently, but there were a few issues. There was some fretwear on this model that needed to be looked at. A good level should fix those issues. As a result, I wasn't able to get the action I was hoping for, but considering that the guitar was used, it's not too surprising. The floyd on this is pretty bad, and I recommend replacing it with something higher quality. I'm a big fan of the original Floyd Rose, and I believe it drops right in without any modifications needed.

SOUNDS

The stock pickups in this aren't that good. The bridge pickup is kind of like a Duncan JB clone, but it's not nearly as clear sounding, nor is it as organic. It seems to sound a lot more linear or something. The in between position was pretty decent, but the single is quite noisy. The middle position is fairly useless to me, and I almost never use it alone. The neck and middle position got some really cool strat quack sounds, and it delivered for cleans, but I felt it lacked some dynamics. The stock neck didn't have enough output for me, and it was noisy. If it were me, I'd swap them with something a bit better.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are pretty good considering what you get, but keep in mind that they're basswood bodies. Not everybody likes that. Personally, I prefer either alder or mahogany on Jackson guitars because it's a bit more traditional. A pickup swap and maybe a floyd swap should make this a really good player.

Jackson Dinky XL
Jackson Japonnaise (before 1998), 24 frets Jumbo HSS pickups, Jackson Bridge under license Floyd Rose
1 volume + 1 tone, 5-way pos, handle vissbr /> Corp Alder, Maple Neck, Rosewood key repres in shark tooth
Black Accoustillage

USE

Handle very pleasant, prcis, fast, very fast access to acute super easy.
Like all Jackson Statodes form, the grip is impeccable both sitting and standing, very good balance.
The weight is consistent for me for a catalog Mtal guitar (not MATIRE, music!), It's not lightweight but lighter than LP.
I bought the used mine, the first owner had the good idea to replace the origins microphones (Jackson at that time) by Di Marzio (an Al Dimeola DP 202 at the easel DP 110 and the handle, the center is always the original Jackson but I'll change for another bientt Di Marzio).
In terms of sound, as a team is a killer in good standing, low fat and monstrous overpowered acute, it is not difficult, I sound better with her than My ESP (Emg pickups 81) warmer and color (a closer perhaps the Emg 85) and everything in liabilities.

SONORITS

Guitar made for Metal, was great, that's what I like to play, Megadeth, Kreator, Metallica, Testament ...
I play on PC through my Digitech RP-3 (SE Tonelab is in command), and even as it was stunning.
Sound Clean the DP 110 is beautifully color remaining lens, distortion, it's a great warm sound with very beautiful harmonic.
The DP 202 is ... J'Peux not explain, I do not know the characteristics of the microphone (I did not find on the site). it's beautiful, adchire

NOTICE GLOBAL

I've had a few weeks and it became immediately my prefers.
I paid 400 and for that price I could not esprer the better).
Excellent quality / price / performance with the added look awesome Jackson

Jackson Dinky XL
Japonnaise Jackson (before 1998), 24 Jumbo frets, HSS pickups, Bridge Floyd Rose licensed Jackson
1 volume + 1 tone, 5 pos selector, Bolt
Alder body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, shark teeth marks in
Black Accoustillage

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice, accurate, fast, very fast access to acute super easy.
Like all forms of stratabound Jackson, the handling is impeccable both sitting and standing, very good balance.
The weight is for me a guitar cataloged according to Metal (not the subject, music!) Is not light but lighter than a LP.
I bought mine used, the first owner had the bright idea of ​​replacing the pickups of origin (of Jackson at the time) by Di Marzio (an Al DiMeola DP 202 to DP 110 and a bridge to the handle the center was always the Jackson home, but I changed to a passive Emg S3).

SOUNDS

Guitar made for metal, it's good, that's what I like to play, Megadeth, Kreator, Metallica, Testament, ...
I play on PC through my Digitech RP-3 and even then it is bluffing.
Clean sound of DP 110 is beautifully colored crystal remaining in distortion, it's a great warm sound with beautiful harmonic.
EMG S3 to Start a typed (without the noise!) In both clean crunch,
I just change the DP 202 with a EMG 60 Active, it's amazing the difference is a real weapon of mass destruction. Phenomenal power crunch as clean, crystal clear harmonics, but happiness, just have to change by a simple two EMG EMG S and SA for LA Machine

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a few weeks and it immediately became my favorite.
I paid € 400 and for that price, I could not expect better.
Excellent quality / price / performance with the added super look Jackson
