Shred in ergonomic comfort and style with the Jackson X Series Dinky(TM) Arch Top DKAF7 MS. A high-performance evolution of the electric guitar, this 7-string multi-scale model unlocks the possibilities of an instrument by accommodating two scale lengths on one fingerboard, thus improving overall playing comfort while improving tension and intonation.

The DKAF7 MS features a 25.5"-27" multi-scale length, mahogany Dinky(TM) body with an arched top, one-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, 12"-16" compound radius laurel fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays, Jackson die-cast tuners and 4x3 AT-1 headstock.

Dual Jackson uncovered 7-string blade humbucking pickups in the bridge and neck power this metal beast and can be shaped by a three-way toggle switch and single volume and tone controls. To help improve intonation, the guitar has been equipped with Jackson designed individual bridge saddles, staggered to accommodate for the two scale lengths.

When I first ordered it, I was skeptical because people didn't seem to like the pickups... They were all wrong! This beast can chug and play like one of those dream guitars every metal head wants. The pickups are absolutely amazing for heavy metal stylized genres and even the cleans on the neck pickups are really amazing. The bridge pickup really emphasizes a rich mid-range and clear tone. It really shows when you palm mute and hear that roaring chug. My only problem is that it's a 3-way switch based system, I would have loved to have access to more tones. The fact that it's a multi scale and has fanned frets really got me as well. It's extremely easy to play and feels very smooth and buttery on the frets. My only problem is probably the nut being placed a little diagonally, it's hard to play a power chord on the first fret without the nut getting in the way a little but I understand that it's supposed to stabilize the multi scale environment this guitar presents, so I might have to get used to it. Overall: I think this guitar is amazing, I'm keeping this thing and it'll always be my best friend for drop tuning.
