This 7-string Was Built to Shred!

The Jackson JS22-7 Dinky 7-string solidbody electric guitar was made to create dropped-tuned mayhem. The amazingly affordable JS22-7 Dinky serves up huge drop-tuned tone and massive sustain - courtesy of its basswood body, string-through-body tailpiece, and two high-output humbuckers. You'll relish the uber-playability of the maple speed neck and fat-fretted, 16" radius rosewood fingerboard that lets you chord blissfully and shred without the fear of fretting out. Say hello to your new weapon of choice: the Jackson JS22-7 Dinky 7-string.

Powerful!! View of a Composer

I'll preface that I am not a guitarist. I am a composer mainly for Film, Videogames, Documentaries and song-writing.I use guitars to add that extra punch to the score, when needed, morphing the sound at will and transforming it into something entirely different.This guitar is not only "fire" when it comes to playing straight up Rock, Metal and any other hard genres, but it performs extensively well during sound-designing sessions and morphing. The sound I can pull out of this baby are limitless.It's solid, sturdy, keeps the tune like a charm and sounds impressively good for a $ guitar, which can be deceiving.Give this guitar a chance, because the price tagis bot reflrcting the actual empirical quality of the overall product, in this case. In my opinion, it is an undercharged product, but hey...I'll take it.

Very nice for the price

This is by far the best entry level 7 string out there. The fit and finish are excellent for such a low end guitar, and the materials are of high quality so it makes a very nice mod platform. A bit of time and effort getting the neck and bridge dialed in, some work on the nut to get it as low as it can reasonable go (which in my case was VERY low) and it plays as well as high end, multi-thousand dollar guitars. I am not generally given to hyperbole either. This guitar is just that good. The stock hardware is cheap but functional. The stock setup is catch-all, so it has high action, plenty of neck relief, and a nut a mile off the fretboard. The stock pickups are a bit muddy at high volume, but thankfully they dont feedback uncontrollably like most entry-level stock pups. They sound fine for bedroom volume. Physically, it is very comfortable to play thanks to the Dinky body made of lightweight Basswood, and very thin neck. The 26.5" scale makes it feel a little wierd at first if you are used to 24.75 or 25.5, but for me that only took a couple hours to get used to, and it makes soloing a little easier for me. I have stupidly long fingers though.

Very Impressed

Wasn't sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Minor fret buzz out of the box on low b. Didn't have any of the other issues mentioned. Pros will likely want more, but great for a starter 7 string.


Pretty awesome afforadable guitar. Came quick and great customer service

Sweetwater Advice

Josh Strid

The Jackson JS22-7 Dinky is really a great sounding guitar and is built very well. I have many guitars in my collection and this one is my go-to when I want to play. I hadn't had any experience with a 7-string until I purchased the JS22 and was really blown away by its tone and playability!
