The Dinky was an innovative breakthrough in a long line of Jackson firsts and an immediate success that has flourished ever since.

Dominating Sound, Style and Playability

In 2006, Jackson first introduced the Mark Morton Signature Dominion model featuring a unique non-pointy body style that was in essence a slightly modified version of the Swee-Tone™ Jazz'r.™ Morton's design rendered the Jazz'r's shallow double cutaways, rounded horns and slightly offset waist in a new chambered-mahogany model with an elegant flame maple top.

Armed with an eye-catching shape and lightning-fast neck, the Kelly has been a popular Jackson staple ever since its 1983 introduction.

Arguably the be-all and end-all of rock guitars. This has to be the coolest axe ever from one of the genre's most prolific names."

San Dimas

Modified for Higher Performance

Jackson progenitor Charvel® began producing its own traditional-style double-cutaway electric guitar models in the late 1970s. These early high-performance instruments quickly won great acclaim, and became informally known among players as "San Dimas" guitars, so nicknamed for Charvel's home city and the San Dimas, Calif., P.O. box listing stamped on their neck plates. Decades later, in the late 2000s, Jackson formally adopted "San Dimas" as part of the name of its signature models for Iron Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith.

Scale length: 25.5" (648 mm)

Neck Construction: Bolt-On

Special Attributes: Perfect blend between Jackson and Charvel DNA
