Model: 2915203 | Pro Series
The limited edition eight-string DKA8 Dinky features an arch-top alder body, bolt-on maple neck (flat-sawn) with graphite reinforcement and side-dot position markers, 16”-radius maple fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and single 12th-fret shark fin inlay, stylish fingerboard and headstock binding, 26.5” scale length, dual direct-mount DiMarzio® D Activator 8™ pickups with five-way switching, single volume and tone controls, momentary kill switch (for stutter effects), recessed Jackson HT-8 eight-string hard-tail string-through bridge, Planet Waves® locking tuners and Dunlop® locking strap pins.
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.
