Shred in ergonomic comfort and style with the Jackson X Series Dinky™ Arch Top DKAF8 MS. A high-performance evolution of the electric guitar, this 8-string multi-scale model unlocks the possibilities of an instrument by accommodating two scale lengths on one fingerboard, thus improving overall playing comfort while improving tension and intonation.
The DKAF8 MS features a 26"-28" multi-scale length, mahogany body with an arched top, one-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, 12"-16" compound radius fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and offset white dot inlays, Jackson die-cast tuners and 4x4 AT-1 headstock.
Dual Jackson uncovered 8-string blade humbucking pickups power this metal beast and can be shaped by a three-way toggle switch and single volume and tone controls.
To help improve intonation, the guitar has been equipped with Jackson designed individual bridge saddles, staggered to accommodate for the two scale lengths.
The DKAF8 MS is available in (NEW!) Gloss Black (laurel fingerboard) or Stained Mahogany (rosewood fingerboard) with black hardware.

ONE-PIECE BOLT-ON MAPLE NECK WITH GRAPHITE REINFORCEMENT AND SCARF JOINT
A type of neck constructed with a scarf joint for an angled back headstock, which in turn increases the tension behind the nut eliminating the need for string trees and/or string retainer bars. The bolt-on neck joins the neck to the body of the guitar with screws or bolts, allowing for more control, attack and sustain.
