The Jackson JS Series Dinky JS32-8Q 8 String Guitar in Transparent Black is the 8-string archtop for that combines affordability, playability, and exemplary tonal versatility. Whether you're a seasoned pro seeking a reliable roadworthy model, a first-timer making the step up from a six- or seven-string, or a guitarist looking for an axe to grind with, then you're going to love the JS32-8Q.
Balanced Dinky body
The Dinky body shape has been favoured by many players thanks to its very comfortable playing feel. Jackson have extended this to their 8-strings perfectly, retaining the same effortless and free-flowing playability, with deep double-cutaways that maximise upper fret access. The archtop shape creates an accommodating playing position for the picking arm with unimpeded access to all strings. The body contours establish a delightfully snug fit against you as you perform.
The tonewood of choice for the JS32-8Q is poplar, a tonally balanced and highly versatile wood that offers a generous midrange energy. Paired with the poplar is a gorgeous quilt maple top with a transparent black finish that allows the quilt grain to shine through.
Graphite reinforced maple neck
To guarantee the strength and resilience of the 3-piece maple neck, Jackson have gone to great lengths to ensure it remains steadfast throughout the most energetic of performances. Fitted using an innovative "wrap-around" bolt-on construction, the neck joint is exceptionally strong, with a 4-bolt plate to finish. The neck has been treated to a satin finish for a smooth and fast-playing feel across the 26.5-inch scale length.
Paired with the neck is a glorious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 jumbo-sized frets that are adorned with alumiloid piranha position inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard features Jackson's unique compound radius design, which gradually flattens towards the heel to take it from 12- to 16-inches for increased comfort when fretting chords, two-hand tapping, performing elaborate sweeps, and bending strings into oblivion.
Jackson high-output humbuckers
Jackson have tasked their very own high-output 8-string humbucking pickups with delivering a powerful yet versatile tonal palette. Fitted in the neck and bridge positions, this pairing produce a mighty sonic blast that is sure to get you the attention you deserve. The wide dynamic range allows you to temper and control the subtle tonal nuances of the JS32-8Q with deft precision, ensuring that you can tailor your tone to your performance demands with impeccable accuracy.
Control over the pickups comes in the form of a 3-way selector switch, as well as master volume and tone pots.
When it comes to outstanding intonation and sustain, the JS Series Dinky JS32-8Q is fitted with the Jackson HT8 8-string hardtail bridge with strings-through-body tailpiece. In keeping with the exceptional build quality bestowed on all Jackson guitars, you are assured a resilient, responsive, and rewarding 8-string that is perfect for hitting the studio and stage with.
