Pro Series Dinky™ DKA8M HT, Maple Fingerboard, Satin Orange Blaze
The Jackson Pro Dinky DK8M HT was designed with the modern player in mind.
Offering an expanded sonic palette, this eight-string beast has a 28” scale length and features an alder body with arched top, bolt-on maple neck with smooth hand-rubbed urethane gel finish, rock-solid graphite reinforcement and ultra-convenient heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel. Its speedy 12”-16"compound radius maple fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets with a black sharkfin inlay at the 12th fret plus stylish fingerboard and headstock binding.
The DKA8M HT 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 a Jackson HT8 string-through-body hardtail bridge, Planet Waves® Auto-Trim locking tuners, Dunlop dual-locking Straplok® strap retainers, black hardware and 4x4 (4 over, 4 under) AT-1 headstock.

Direct Mount Seymour Duncan® Nazgûl and Sentient Pickups
A searing set of pickups that define modern metal. The Nazgul offers the perfect blend of note articulation, saturation and one of the most brutal “chugs” ever designed in a humbucking pickup. The Sentient brings balanced, versatile tone with pristine cleans and fluid leads for a dynamic response and wide harmonic range. The pickups are mounted to the body for increased resonance and vibration transfer, adding more punch and sustain to your sound.
