Seven-string fans looking for a guitar that is as sleek and deadly as it is affordable will find everything they need with the JS Series Dinky Arch Top JS22-7 DKA HT.

This beastly axe features a 26.5" scale length for better low-end articulation, a lightweight and resonant poplar body with an arched top and a bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint for rock-solid stability. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and piranha tooth inlays, the 12"-16" compound radius amaranth fingerboard creates the ideal playing surface for fat riffs and easy chording near the black plastic nut while gradually flattening in the upper registers for lightning-quick solos and wide bends without fear of fretting out.

Powered by direct mount dual Jackson high-output humbucking pickups, the JS22-7 DKA HT is also equipped with a three-way blade switch, single volume and tone controls, compensated string-through-body fixed Jackson HT7 bridge, sealed die-cast tuners and our 3x4 (3 over, 4 under) AT-1 headstock.

The JS22-7 DKA HT is finished in a brooding Satin Black finish with all-black hardware.

Ordered some tab books of a band that uses a 7 string, so on a whim I looked up what I could get for a "cheap" 7 string. Had one laid away immediately after I saw how cheap they go for. Played it all weekend and I am absolutely blown away at how good it feels. I also have and LTD Viper 1000, and this feels 90% as good as my Viper does to play. The one thing I will recommend is upgrading the strings (which I did and it now sounds awesome). The factory ones are too wimpy and sound kind of twangy. If you're looking to dip your toes into 7 strings, you cannot pick a better guitar. Jackson's value for money is unparalleled.

I play a Gibson LP and an ESP LTD 8 string and bought this 7 string on a whim. I saw it in the store for $259.00 and laughed but the sales guy said " Try it" It felt pretty good and the quality was a little better than I imagined. This is no Best Buy first act guitar. I have been wanting a 7 string and I saw some reviews for it and they were not half bad. I bought the darn thing and brought it home and put a set of Daddario NYXL's on it and plugged it into my Axe Fx 2 and I was shocked at how good it sounds. The tone is quite good for a metal guitar. No need to change the pickups. the scale length is also nice. A little smaller than my 8 string but still long enough for drop tuning. Now it is a cheap guitar and the tuners are pretty poor. 2 of them would not even turn all the way so I backed them off before winding the strings. There is likely debris in the gears from the manufacturing. The neck radius is also not what I am used to. It's quite flat and the nut is made from a very soft cheap plastic but that is easy enough to take care of. The fret work is good and no sharp edges and no buzzing strings anywhere on the neck. It was set up pretty well too. It's a nice looking guitar over all and feels good and is pretty light. They also threw in a free setup in the first year for signing up for the insider emails which is worth $75 alone. I can not imagine getting better value for $260. I would have never thought I would buy such a cheap guitar but this is an alright guitar and plays perfectly and sounds amazing. I am having a hard time putting it down. I have been playing guitar for 40 years and I have never come across a guitar in this price range that I would consider buying but this one changed that.

I bought this entirely as a one trick pony, mostly to get my metal riffs on once in a while. I own two EVH’s and a Charvel and have never played a 7 string until I bought this as a result of viewing a few YouTube videos. Wow. Almost makes me question why I spend so much money on guitars when something like this exists for $259, although to be honest I basically use only the top 4 strings. I actually like the sound of the neck pickup, it exceeded expectations. Tuners were fine after I stretched the original strings. Nut is plastic and will eventually need to be replaced, no biggy. Frets were fine, finish was fantastic. Absolute fantastic value.

For what it is this is a phenomenal steal of a deal. Sure the pickups are lacking a bit of girth... but seriously for $250?!?! Even dropping another $300 on better pups... you're still under the entry level Ibanez... which also needs upgrades... the multi-radius fretboard and the borderline baritone scale length make it a comfortable platform to jump off into the realm of extended range. My only gripe is the very estrogenic strings this beast ships with... no offense but 9's are way too light to even tune to drop A without getting extremely washed out tone. Grab a set of 10's at least if you buy.

Si tu cherches ta première guitare 7 cordes, c'est la bonne. Le prix est simplement inexplicable. j'ai essayé d'autres guitare 7 cordes d'entrée de gamme allant jusqu'à 600$ et cette guitare est LE meilleure choix, autant pour le prix, la qualité de construction et le son. Évidemment que ce n'est pas comme une guitare haut de gamme, mais tu feras un TRÈS BON bout de chemin avec cette machine de guerre. Personnellement j'ai mis des locking tuners et j'ai changé les pick-ups parce que je ne voulais pas changer de guitare. Les pickups de base sont "Muddy", mais si t'es du genre à jouer avec une BOSS Metal Zone, tu ne verra AUCUNE différence avec une guitare plus dispendieuse. Le profile du neck est mince, la guitare est légère pis une guit noir mât avec des inlays en dents de requins de même c'est sexy.

J'ai eu cette guitare en cadeau. Je n'avais jamais joué avec une 7 cordes... J'ai beaucoup aimé la touche, les sonorités et le ''Look'' de cette guitare. Elle est beaucoup inspirante! Guitare de base, micros et autres quincailleries sont rudimentaires... Donc, ne pas s'attendre à une guitare de qualité de $1000.00 et plus. Mais vous serez impressionné par la qualité de cette dernière. Je vous conseille pour l'essai d'une 7 cordes avant d'acheter un modèle haut de gamme!

This guitar is amazing for it's price! it's got a dark menacing look with juicy curves , a nice sustain , with a lightweight body , a pretty slim and surprisingly flat rosewood fretboard. The pickups do the job and sound a LITTLE bit muddy on record but depending on your settings/EQs/amps , the whole tone might change. I'm still impressed by it. Every day , I get home from work @ 5:20pm and I stare at it for a while , wash my hands and jump on it. Every time I end up dropping it it's past 10:00pm. Just give it a shot and ear it by yourselves! 7string 250$.
