Jackson JS23 Dinky - Natural Reviews

4.5 stars based on 5 customer reviews

Sweetwater Advice

  • Chris McCown

    For the entry level guitarist, the Jackson JS23 is one of the best values to come along in a long time. Great aesthetics, 24 frets, and fantastic playability. What more could a budding rock star need? If I were just starting on guitar, I would love this as my first instrument!

    Thi is the BEST Low Priced Guitar EVER

    I am Blown away, I owned them all, Expensive Gibson's, Ibanez, Epiphone, Fender, etc..and for the money this thing is worth like $700 to $100, and I am not kidding, the Quality is unbelievable and you even get a High Quality Jackson Gig Bag? $60 that alone is 1/4 the price of the guitar, and when you feel this guitar in your hands, I do not even use my other ones now! see my YouTube Review! iammichaelwalker your gonna never regret it..I know it's hard to believe but way to go Jackson!! oH! and I own it since July 13th 2010

    Good looks, descent hardware, nice tone, smooth action

    Honestly, I bought this for the fact it was natural finish. The fact it is a Jackson, quality was a non-issue. The price was just an added bonus. The neck profile is just right for fretboard acrobatics. The action is low if you enjoy shredding. It has metal control knobs. Nice. The PU's have good tone, especially the bridge, where I like to live. Shark tooth inlays, rosewood, maple neck are aesthetic. I like it. It arrived in perfect condition. Thanks Sweetwater for your excellent service.

    Jackson JS23

    Great Guitar for the price, very good sound, good fast fingerboard,

    Guitar is very well built, compared to much higher models.

    A Great Starter Electric

    This guitar is, maybe, the best, low-end starter I've seen. I gave one to my 13 year old granddaughter, teamed it with an old Roland 15X Cube of mine and she was ROCKIN'. Slides, bends, etc. were almost accidental but she loved every minute. That's a good start, I think.
    The fit and finish are very nice (the result of the Fender buy-out, I hear) and, while one could argue about the merits of the pick-ups, I plugged it in and had a ball. (For reference, my main guitar is a Fender Deluxe Strat.)
    Very playable, very fun.
    I might have given 5 Stars but, if you divebomb hard, it doesn't hold tune well. I could say the same about a PRS SE I own which costs several hundred bucks more.
    Still, a very nice playing bargain that lives-up to the hype. A super starter.
