Factory-Evertuned Jackson 7-string brings some joy into this hell-year

JACKSON® EXPANDS PRO SERIES DINKY™ DK PLATFORM; ADDS NEW COLOR FOR X SERIES SOLOIST™ SLX DX 

Scottsdale, Ariz. (August 26, 2020) – Jackson® today announces the expansion of its Pro Series Dinky™ platform with the brand new Pro DK Modern EverTune® 7 and Pro DK Modern HT6 MS, new finishes for the Pro DK Modern HT6 and Pro DK2 Ash, as well as a fresh new finish for the X Series Soloist™ SLX DX.

The Pro Series Dinky™ DK Modern EverTune® 7 model provides the ultimate high-performance experience for today’s modern players.

Featuring a 26.5” scale length, this modern 7-string guitar’s basswood Dinky body is paired with a sturdy graphite-reinforced bolt-on three-piece maple/wenge/maple neck. The satin finish on the back of the neck creates greater playing comfort, while a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes for quick and easy neck relief tweaks. Designed for fast and intricate playing, the 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets and offset pearloid dot inlays, while Luminlay® side dots provide fretboard guidance even on the darkest of stages.

Active multi-voiced Fishman® Fluence® Open Core PRF-CO7 bridge and neck humbucking pickups give this powerful instrument its dynamic tone — capable of over-wound hot-rodded crunch or vintage snap. With the five-way blade in pickup positions one (full bridge) or five (full neck), leverage the tone control with push/pull activation to switch from voice one to voice two. Pickups positions two, three and four all feature voice 3’s single-coil tone.

The EverTune® F7 bridge never goes out of tune, making this DK Modern the perfect instrument for both the studio or live performances. Other next-level features include a single volume control, Gotoh® locking tuners, Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut and Dunlop® dual-locking strap buttons.

No-nonsense style also arrives in the form of a Primer Gray finish, complete with a reverse 3×4 AT-1 color matched headstock and black hardware.

The Pro Series Dinky™ DK Modern HT6 MS features premium appointments catering to highly technical playing, multi-dimensional tone and ergonomic design.

The HT6 MS accommodates two scale lengths on one fingerboard (25.5”-26.5”) and improves overall playing comfort while improving tension and intonation. Its basswood Dinky body is paired with a sturdy graphite-reinforced bolt-on three-piece maple/wenge/maple neck, featuring a satin finish on the back for greater playing comfort. The 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets, offset pearloid dot inlays, Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut and Luminlay® side dots.

A pair of multi-voiced Fishman® Fluence® Modern PRF-MH7 pickups are directly mounted to the body for improved vibration transfer. This re-imagined set delivers the most sought-after humbucking tones, from modern active pickup sounds to super-hot high-output humbucking tones. This instrument’s versatile voice can be explored with a five-way blade switch, single volume control and tone control with push/pull knob to switch from an active to passive tone for more dynamic picking attack.

The HT6 MS also features Gotoh® locking tuners and a Hipshot® 6 fixed bridge for improved intonation and enhanced sustain.

Unparalleled style arrives in the form of a dazzling Snow White finish, complete with a reverse 3×3 AT-1 color matched headstock and black hardware.

The Jackson X Series Soloist™ SLX DX is a distinctive and affordable model offering many fine features desired by today’s shredders, including a poplar body and a through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and tilt-back scarf joint headstock. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays, its 12”-16” bound compound radius laurel fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out.

Duncan Designed™ alnico HB-103N neck and high-output ceramic HB-103B bridge humbucking pickups power this metal beast with an expansive voice loaded with crunchy, full-bodied tone ideal for brazen lead work or punchy rhythms runs.

Tone is fully customizable with three-way blade switching and single volume and tone controls, while a Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo bridge system provides excellent tuning  stability and dynamic tremolo action.

Sleek and sinister, the SLX DX is available in a new Silverburst finish with black hardware and pointed 6-in-line black headstock.
