Get Schooled on the New Jackson Pro Series Dinky DK3 Okoume
July 25, 2018
Sit down with Jackson product manager Peter Wichers as he demos the gorgeous new Pro Series Dinky™ DK3 Okoume model. After giving a quick rundown of the various features of the this new metal beast, Wichers flips through the five-way blade switch to show off each pickup position and the instrument’s versatile tones.
Built with an HSS pickup configuration, the Pro Series Dinky DK3 has a Seymour Duncan® JB humbucking bridge pickup that outputs revved up warm and aggressive harmonics, balanced with the perfect mix of sustain and distortion, and is the ideal complement to the Seymour Duncan Strat® SSL-6 single-coil middle and neck pickups, which add sparkly tones and glassy cleans.
Other top-of-the-line features include an okoume body, one-piece bolt-on maple neck (hand-rubbed urethane gel back finish) with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement rods, a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and offset pearloid dot inlays, a recessed Floyd Rose® double-locking tremolo bridge system and a heel-mounted truss rod wheel that allows for quick and convenient neck relief adjustments.
The DK3 Okoume is available in a Natural satin finish with all-black hardware and a matching Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock with black binding.
