Review: Jacksons Dinky Electric Guitar

Published 14:09 pm

A few years ago I decided I need a new guitar since mine was getting a little old, and was a little out of style. Christmas Day was coming up so I decided to ask my parents for a new guitar to help enhance my musical ability. I didn't want a guitar worth thousands upon thousands of dollars, but I wanted something nice. I hadn't decided what brand to buy. I had heard of Jackon's guitars around from my friends, while browsing in music shops, and while navigating through online music shops as well.

I finally went to well known store known as "Guitar Center", which was about twenty minutes away from my house. It was almost Christmas Day, so my parents had decided just to take me to a music store where I could look around. Guitar Center had been known around school and town for having really great deals and the people working there knew what they were doing altogether.

After I had played with some other guitars I saw the Jackson Dinky Firestorm. I instantaneously fell in love with it. The nice black finish, the beautiful fret inlay design, the reverse headstock... I had to have it. My parents bought it for me as a Christmas present. The rest of the night is a blur from there, but I knew I was happy. With time the guitar only got better.

Every aspect of the guitar is perfect for me. Mine came with a Floyd Rose bridge, which helped keep the guitar in tune, and is just a gret bridge in general. Also, the guitar locks the strings in at the top of the neck, allowing maximum tuning support to keep the guitar from falling out of tune. However, this is a double-bladed sword, since it can also make it more of a hassle to change tunings, retune the the guitar, and change strings. Luckily I hardly change tunings, so the locks are perfect for me.

Although the headstock doesn't really do anything, and is really just for design, it played a role in why I got the Jackson. Jackon's guitars are usually played by metal guitarists, which is why my guitar, and most Jackson's have a slim neck. The slim neck allows for faster playing, especially when it comes to soloing. Another reason that Jackon guitars are good for soloing is their abundant amount of frets, allowing there to be more notes played. My Jackson has a double-octave neck, meaning there's 24+ frets.

Some well known guitarists that uses/used Jackson guitars are Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai, Buckethead, Zakk Wylde, Dave Mustaine, and many, many more.

Like I said before, since I have started playing Jackson, I cannot go back to any other brand. I will continue to supposrt Jackson guitars by merely playing and shredding in the name of Jackson's guitars.
