Model: 2915203537 | Pro Series
With premium features and outstanding vibe and performance, Jackson’s Pro Series Dinky™ models provide the ultimate shred experience.
The eight-string DKA8M Dinky™ has a 28” scale length and features an alder body with arched top, bolt-on maple neck with smooth hand-rubbed urethane gel finish and rock-solid graphite reinforcement, 12”-16"compound radius maple fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets with a black sharkfin inlay at the 12th fret, stylish fingerboard and headstock binding and ultra-convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt adjust.
The DKA8M is powered by volcanic dual direct mount humbucking pickups— Seymour Duncan® Nazgûl (bridge) and Seymour Duncan® Sentient (neck) —and can be tweaked and refined with its single volume and tone speed knob controls, three-way toggle and momentary kill switch (for stutter effects).
Other features include Jackson HT8 string-through-body hardtail bridge, Planet Waves® Auto-Trim die cast locking tuners, Dunlop dual-locking StrapLok® strap retainers, black hardware and 4x4 (4 over, 4 under) AT-1 headstock.
Available in Satin Orange Blaze.
Jackson Pro series instruments are exactly that—pro-level guitars for pro-level players. Neck-through-body models feature hand-rubbed oil neck finishes and graphite neck reinforcement rods for the ultimate in sleek playability and rock-solid sustain and stability. Bolt-on-neck models feature an innovative “wrap-around” three-bolt neck joint with remarkable strength, style and feel.
Jackson Pro series guitars are built with the very best parts for pro tone, stability and durability for stage and studio alike. Nowhere is this more evident than the bridge. Pro series guitars feature Floyd Rose® 1000 Series tremolos, Jackson Hi-Mass hard-tail and string-through bridges.
Pro series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
Pro series models present Jackson players with an alluring assortment of stylistic features and options. These include ebony, maple and rosewood fingerboards; sharkfin, offset-dot and “piranha” fingerboard inlays; deep solid colors and beautifully figured tops; and, of course, the classic Jackson six-in-line headstock.
