Jackson Dinky JS32-8Q DKA HT
Shoulda called it chunky
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
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.
