Shred in ergonomic comfort and style with the Jackson X Series Dinky 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.
Features a 25.5"-27" multi-scale length, mahogany body with an arched top, one-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, 12"-16" compound radius dark rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays, Jackson die-cast tuners and AT-1 4x3 (four on top, three on bottom) headstock.
Dual Jackson uncovered 7-string blade humbucking pickups power this metal beast and can be shaped by a three-way toggle switch and 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.

Took a bit of a gamble and ordered this guitar online without even playing it first, and to say the least i ended up pleased with the decision. The guitar arrived packed very well and very secure, which was nice to see. Visually this guitar is a pleasure to look at. The stained wood looks great and i could not find any obvious flaws/blemishes anywhere on the guitar. While holding it, the first thing that really jumped out (as a positive note) was how comfortable the neck was. I have owned a Jackson soloist model before this one and i actually like this one so much more. It's thin and fast and has an almost "flat" feeling to the very back of the neck. It's super comfortable to play. The body is great too. It's really light, shaped well and just allows for great overall comfortable playing. The guitar sound wise falls just a bit short (IMO). The pickups are good, but not great. It just seems to sound a bit flat in spots, but not necessarily "muddy". They are by no means a let down to the guitar, they just seem to lack some clarity, as opposed to another type of higher quality pickup maybe. The fanned frets are a nice option on this guitar. They seem a bit awkward at first, but once your used to it, it actually becomes really comfortable to play. Overall though, It is a quality instrument and definitely worth looking into if a seven string is what your after. It's a great guitar, without having to spend a pile of cash too!
