The Jackson Pro Series Dinky DK3 Okoume Electric Guitar in Natural Okoume is the dream model for those who like to play fast and fearlessly. There are no unnecessary flourishes, no needless adornments, or ostentatious appointments needed. The Pro Series Dinky DK3 is a straight-up shred machine with an understated beauty whose power comes from within. If you're a touring pro who is looking for a committed partner in crime, then look no further than this awesome guitar.
Lightweight Dinky body
The Pro Series DK3 inherits the streamlined Dinky shape, an ergonomically designed dream brought to life. With comfort at the fore, sweeping curves yield to provide ultimate access to every part of the body and neck. The razor-thin body depth combines with gently bevelled edges to secure a figure-hugging fit, no matter how high and low with decide to wear the guitar.
The body is built using Okoume, a very lightweight tonewood that adds to the Dinky's exceptionally comfortable feel, creating a freedom of movement unlike any other. The natural finish succumbs over time to a darker finish, the more you perform with the guitar, the more unique it becomes. A slender yet resilient satin coating prevents premature wear from blemishing the natural wood grain.
Sturdy and reliable neck
The Dinky is bestowed with Jackson's solid and reliable bolt-on neck construction, which allows you to smash through riffs with wild abandon. The single-piece maple neck is reinforced using graphite rods, which prevents unwanted twisting or warping from occurring due to changes in humidity or temperature.
Married to the neck is a luxurious ebony fingerboard, which is home to 24 jumbo frets that are decorated with offset pearloid dot inlays. Jackson's compound radius design runs from a 12-inch radius at the nut to a flatter 16-inch radius as it approaches the neck joint. The result is a more natural fit for the hand whether fretting chords, performing elaborate sweeps, two-hand tapping with 8 fingers on the go, or performing lightning fast legato without a care in the world. The hand-rubbed urethane gel finish allows your hand to glide along with ease.
Seymour Duncan pickups
The hard-rocking character of the Pro Series Dinky DK3 comes pouring forth from the HSS pickup configuration, with a trio of Seymour Duncan pickups accomplishing the task with ease. In the bridge position is a JB TB-4 humbucker that delivers a warm and aggressive blast with just the right amount of distortion and sustain. In the middle and neck positions are the Strat SSL-6 single-coil pickups that can do it all from fat and chunky blues to searing, sweet metal.
Control over the pickups comes via the 5-way pickup selector switch, enabling access to a wide range of tones through coil-splits and pickup pairings to explore. The master volume and master tone pots allow you to sculpt and shape your tone to suit with pinpoint accuracy.
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 FRT-O2000 locking nut, which ensures 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.
