The Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky is a great guitar that oozes quality from every fret.
There are some guitar manufacturers who you can rely on to make top quality instruments which give you everything that you would want to be able to truly express your sound. Jackson is just such a manufacturer and the Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky guitar is a great example of why.
Jackson has been producing guitars since the 1970s when Grover Jackson obtained ownership of Charvels Guitar Repair Shop in Glendora California. He first produced guitars under the Charvel name but later introduced the Jackson name after designing a guitar for Randy Rhoads. During the 1980s the Jackson range of guitars were well known as the instruments of choice for the Hair Metal bands that sprung up on the West Coast of the US. This endorsement led to Jackson guitars being seen as the guitar to have if you liked to perform fretboard theatrics. Acquired by Fender in 2002 the Jackson name is still associated with high quality American made custom instruments.
The Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky is part of the Jackson Pro Series guitar range and is firmly aimed at the mid to high end market.
So what can you expect from the Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky.
The Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky is a classic super strat with a beautifully contoured body cut from alder with a quilted maple top. Finished in a see through black paint job the quilted maple top really looks amazing giving the guitar an overall impression of quality and style. The neck of the Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky is the brilliant Jackson Speed Neck which as the name suggests is designed to give a comfortable and fast playing experience. The compound profile of the neck is a Jackson innovation and involves the profile of the neck gradually flattening as you get closer to the heel of the guitar. The neck itself is made from maple and is reinforced with graphite. The maple theme is continued through to the 24 fret fingerboard.
In terms of electrics the Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky is armed with a couple of Seymour Duncan Humbucker pick-ups. In the neck position you have the Seymour Duncan ’59 Zebra and in the bridge position you have a JB Zebra. Pick-up selection is through a five way blade selector switch and there is a master volume and tone controls. The pick-up selection allows you to move from humbucker to single coil and therefore gives you a great tonal range.
The hardware of the Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky is a Floyd Rose R3 locking tremolo unit which gives you great tuning stability if you are looking to perform some whammy bar acrobatics.
Plugged in the Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky guitar sounds great. It can produce clean, sparkling and punchy tones or fat, juicy and dirty distorted tones. The great Seymour Duncan pick-ups and the ability to play a number of single coil or humbucking positions gives the guitar a huge tonal range and makes it a very versatile instrument.
There is not much that I can say about this guitar that it hasn’t already said for itself. The styling and quality of the guitar just screams at you the moment you pick it up. The Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky is a quality guitar from the top end build quality to the Seymour Duncan electrics you get a guitar that plays extremely well and has a great sound.
If you are looking for a top super strat then the Jackson DK2MQ Pro Series Dinky could be the guitar for you.
