Jack­son Dinky JS32-8Q DKA HT

Shoulda called it chunky

Total Guitar - - THE STATION GAS -

Haven’t we seen this be­fore?

No, but the Dinky S-style is one of Jack­son’s most pop­u­lar shapes. Fea­tur­ing the very 21st cen­tury spear head­stock (which, while we’re here, we still pre­fer the old-school in­line head­stock – you can’t im­prove upon per­fec­tion), this Dinky is a su­per-sized take on a favourite.

It looks pretty smart. Are we read­ing the price cor­rectly?

It does, and we love the quilted maple top and white bind­ing. They of­fer a wel­come touch of lux­ury on a gui­tar that’s a bit like all of us in that it as­pires to pass it­self off as a pricier model. As you’d ex­pect, there are some con­ces­sions to fis­cal re­al­ity; you won’t find the kill switch and ac­tive Di­marzio hum­buck­ers as you do on the

Pro Series.

What makes this so playable?

All four of these make wel­come con­ces­sions to the player, but there’s some­thing about that Jack­son neck, and the 304mm– 406mm (12"-16") com­pound ra­dius fret­board that makes it as com­fort­able zip­ping about above the 12th fret as it is fret­ting chords for your rhythms. That playa­bil­ity is Jack­son all over.
