Jackson Dinky JS32-8Q, an 8 string guitar from Jackson’s JS Series, featuring a quilted maple top for great looks to back up the awesome sound and playability.
8-String Guitar with Jackson Tone and Performance at a Great Price
Jackson wanted to provide a line of guitars that would offer authentic Jackson style, sound and playability but price that would make them accessible to a wider audience, and so the JS Series was born.
Seen here is the JS Series Dinky JS32-8Q in a Transparent Black finish with a beautiful quilted maple top.
It is an 8-string electric guitar which really shows off how good the JS Series can be with its awesome style and powerful 8-string sound.
Quality Jackson Construction
Poplar has been used to craft the familiar Dinky design, with its double cutaway body allowing for easy reach of the higher frets; perfect for those face melting solos.
For an extra touch of class and adding to its beautifully high-end look, the JS32-8Q has a quilted maple top beneath its smoky, transparent black finish.
Sturdy bolt-on construction sees the joining of a three-piece Maple neck that has a scarf joint and graphite reinforcement making for an extremely secure neck that has enhanced sustain.
The neck also benefits from a 12”-16” compound radius, bound Rosewood fingerboard allowing you to get great low-action bends without fretting out.
Jackson really pioneered the use of the compound radius design which has the fretboard gradually flattening as you get towards the heel while having a more a rounded profile at the nut end.
The end result is a comfortable, natural-feeling chording and riffing area near the nut while allowing for optimal shred articulation and bending when you’re playing nearer the heel.
Adding to the incredible playability of this neck is its lovely smooth and comfortable satin finish.
Contrasting nicely with the Rosewood fretboard while helping you find your position with true Jackson Guitars style are alumiloid piranha position inlays.
Powerful Electronics and Hardware
Jackson High Output, 8 String Humbuckers deliver a great, powerful voice that is unmistakeably Jackson.
A three-way blade switch allows you to choose between using both pickups at once, the neck pickup alone or the bridge pickup alone for an assortment of voices.
Designed for use with 8-string guitars, these humbucking pickups deliver the thick and heavy sound needed for serious heavy metal guitar.
Master Volume and Master Tone controls give you further options for manipulating your sound.
A direct-mount Jackson HT-8 hardtail bridge with strings-through-body design retains perfect intonation across the length and breadth of the neck while aiding in increasing sustain.
Sealed die-cast tuning machines give you speedy, precise and secure tuning of your strings and all the hardware is black to fit in with the awesome Jackson aesthetic.
