Awesome First Metal Axe!So you're wanting to shred, huh? Then you need a guitar that can hang with you and support that fast style of playing. Because not every guitar is gonna do that for you, especially not at an affordable first-guitar kind of price. But the Jackson JS23 Dinky? That's what this baby is all about. The guys over at Jackson are awesome... they know all about metal and aggressive tones because they were making guitars for some of the earliest shredders back in the day... Randy Rhoads, Kirk Hammett, yeah. They know a thing or two. But they also know that guys who may be tomorrow next big thing, may not have the cash to drop on a super-expensive metal-centric guitar. That's why Jackson designed the JS23 Dinky. It's got the features you want and need to support your playing, without taking down your whole paycheck with it.
So, what are we talking about? It's got a 24-fret compound radius Indian rosewood fingerboard... the compound radius is important because it means it's a little chunkier down on the lower frets for comfortable chords.... but it gets flatter the farther your fly up the fretboard. Flatter is better because it helps you achieve and sustain TOP SPEED. As you'd expect, there are two humbucking pickups here in the Jackson JS23 Dinky so you get smoking-hot, searing tone. And in between them, Jackson added a singlecoil pickup, so you've got major tonal versatility here too. That's nice. Add the 2-point fulcrum tremolo, chrome hardware, shark fin inlays, and instantly recognizable Jackson headstock, and you've got a hot guitar that's made to help you master metal. Get the Jackson JS23 Dinky.
