A Quick Look at 10 New Pro Series Dinky Models

January 27, 2017

For 2017, Jackson introduces a variety of all-new Pro Series Dinky models, including a collection of HSS configured DK3’s. Several DK2’s are also now available in several new finishes.

Here’s a quick look at 10 new Dinky offerings:

Pro Series Dinky™ DK3

The all-new Pro Series Dinky™ DK3 features an ash body, one-piece bolt-on maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement rods, a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays, and a convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt adjust.

This new HSS configured model features a JB™ TB-4 humbucking bridge pickup for  revved up warm and aggressive harmonics, balanced with the perfect mix of sustain and distortion. It’s the ideal complement to the all-new Strat® SSL-6 single-coil middle and neck pickups, which add sparkly tones and glassy cleans for a versatile sound that can take you from blues to metal.

The beauty and detail of the wood is captured in this Natural Ash finish.

Pro Series Dinky™ DK3M

The Pro Series Dinky™ DK3M features an alder body and a maple fingerboard and the same new HSS pickup configuration as the DK3 —a JB™ TB-4 humbucking bridge and all-new Strat® SSL-6 single-coil middle and neck pickups.

This model is available in a Pitch Black satin finish, that as you can see, picks up interesting hues under the lights.

Pro Series Dinky™ DK3QM

Another new model is the DK3QM, which adds a quilt maple top to the alder body. Available in Chlorine Burst, this guitar features a matching Jackson 6-in-line pointed headstock and a maple fingerboard with 12″-16″ compound radius.
