NAMM 2017: Jackson Guitars Releases New Dinky Models

NAMM 2017: Jackson Guitars Releases New Dinky Models Jackson Pro Series Dinky.

Jackson announces the release of several all-new Pro Series and JS Series Dinky models, as well as several new color additions.

With premium features and outstanding vibe and performance, Jackson’s Pro Series Dinky models provide the ultimate shred experience. For 2017, Jackson introduces an alternate take on this classic shape, featuring the same great appointments with all-new pickups.

The Pro Series Dinky DK3, DK3M and DK3QM are all built withan HSS pickup configuration. The JB TB-4 humbucking bridge pickup outputs revved up warm and aggressive harmonics, balanced with the perfect mix of sustain and distortion, and is the ideal complement to the all-new Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle and neck pickups, which add sparkly tones and glassy cleans for a versatile sound that can take guitarists from blues to metal.

Master volume and tone controls shape the pickups’ output, which can be further refined with the five-way blade switch, while a recessed Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo bridge provides incredible sustain.

These three models also have a one-piece bolt-on maple neck, (hand-rubbed urethane gel back finish) with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement rods, 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays, convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt adjust, all-black hardware and matching Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock.

• The DK3 features an ash body and ebony fingerboard and is available in a Natural Ash satin finish.
• The DK3M features an alder body with a maple fingerboard and is available in a Pitch Black satin finish.
• The DK3MQ features an alder body with a quilt maple top and maple fingerboard, and is offered in Chlorine Burst.
