The Jackson Pro Series Dinky DK2 Ash Electric Guitar in Charcoal Gray offers a tour-ready model at an affordable price. Boasting an effortless playability and impressive tonal arsenal to launch your sonic assault with, the Dinky DK2 is perfect for those who like to live loud.
Deep double-cutaway Dinky body
The Pro Series DK2 is no stranger to the stadium stage, having graced the hands of some of metal's biggest names. Thanks to the diminuitive and exceptionally comfortable body profile, the Dinky has become a legendary model for those in the hard rock and metal fraternity. The razor-thin body depth couples beautifully with the ergonomically designed body shape to establish freedom unlike any other.
The body is crafted using ash, a tonewood that is favoured by many due to its weighty mid-range presence couple with a penetrating warmth that permeates every note. Finished in a brooding charcoal grey paint job, a resilient coating of satin ensures the smoothest feel possible.
Graphite reinforced maple neck
When it comes to stability, Jackson's bolt-on construction is just the beginning. Reinforced using graphite rods, the single-piece maple neck is as tough as they come. No matter what you throw its way, it will keep on coming back for more. Not only that, but the neck is protected against twisting and warping due to changes in humidity and temperature. You can rest assured that no matter where your tour takes you and your Dinky, it will remain in pristine condition.
The luxurious playing feel extends to the ebony fingerboard, which creates a sumptuous touch for the fingers. You'll find 24 jumbo frets to explore with offset pearloid dot position inlays to aid your navigation. Jackson's compound radius design means that the rounded 12-inch profile at the nut flattens to a 16-inch radius towards the neck heel. The benefits are clear, affording a more natural playing position for the fretting hand as it journeys up and down the neck. Whether you're throwing in cheeky string bends, seamless legato or two-handed tapping across multiple strings simultaneously, the fingerboard is more than happy to oblige you.
Seymour Duncan humbuckers
To produce tones worthy of the Pro Series Dinky DK2, Jackson have employed direct-mount Seymour Duncan humbuckers with a JB TB-4 in the bridge position, and a '59 in the neck position. The JB offers a hot-rodded humbucker that sings whatever style of music you're performing from Blues to Thrash, whilst the '59 is a delightfully versatile P.A.F.-inspired humbucker with a sparkling attack and sweet sustain.
Control over the pickups comes via the 5-way pickup selector switch, enabling access to each humbucker independently, inner single coils, both humbuckers simultaneously, and the outer neck single-coil. As well as that, there are master volume and master tone pots for subtle attenuation over your tone.
Floyd Rose mastery
The body is equipped with a Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo, which affords precise vibrato control with anything from slight adjustment to deep dives and soaring wailing. At the top of the neck is the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut, which ensured that once you've tuned up using the Jackson sealed die-cast tuning machines you can work out the bridge to your heart's content. As ever, the Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock proudly bears the instantly recognisable Jackson logo.
