Building a Better Dinky
The Jackson DK2M Pro Series Dinky builds on what made the model a classic, adding a three-bolt neck joint, and keeping well-loved appointments like a Floyd Rose tremolo.
Stability Starts With the Neck
Jackson has overlooked no detail on the neck of the DK2M. The flat-sawn maple neck is attached to the body with a three-bolt joint. The ergonomic positioning of the bolts adds greater stability to the neck. To further reinforce the neck, Jackson added one graphite rod on each side of the truss rod within, making for an instrument that stays straight in all climates and conditions.
A Shred-Head's Delight
Outfitted with a Floyd Rose FRT-02000 double-locking tremolo, the DK2M is ready for any and all whammy bar abuse. The neck is capped off with a hand-rubbed oil finish and given a compound radius profile which flattens out towards the body, making your high fret bends much easier. The dramatic cutaway joins the body around the 19th fret, making the guitar's highest registers easy to reach.
No Shortage of Heavy Tones
One knock against metal-oriented guitars is a lack of tonal versatility -- some players say they can't deliver anything but full-blown high-gain sounds. The DK2M offers many options through its dual humbucker design. It's equipped with a Seymour Duncan Zebra JB in the bridge and a Zebra '59 in the neck, and allows players to switch between the full bridge pickup, the inside single coils of each pickup, both humbuckers, the outer single coil of the neck pickup, and the full neck pickup for a whole arsenal of sounds. The pickups are both directly mounted to the body, making those in-your-face tones possible when you want them.
