  • Dinky vs Soloist

    hi guys...i was wondering if anyone have tried both or any of this jacksons, and tell me your thoughts about anything you see interesting on them... i already know about their construction and pups (dinky w/EMGs Soloist w/JB-59') i dont care of the pups, cause i like both (i already have duncans and emgs on my guitars), but i wish to know if they feel sweet when playing them, their neck (my bandmate has one old jackson, "professional" model, and it has the best neck i have played ever, even better than the ibanez ones), etc etc...

    thanks dudes

    Hey,
    If you think the neck on that Jackson was good, try a USA made Jackson neck! They are the best i have i ever played, and now that i own one , ill never go back! i PLayed one the dinky models also, it was was one of the imports that is a lower line model, dx10d , and even it was a great guitar to play. Had awsome action and attack! i'm going to get a dk2 sometime to keep in another tunning. good luck!

        yeah, im going to buy that DK-1 "usa selected series" dinky or the same series soloist. i dunno of the model my friend has but he paid near 600 10 years ago, so it could be one usa made jackson...

        the ibanez prestige necks are as good as this ones (my k7 feels sweet!! the best seven around imo...11 neck) , but i dunno of the dk-1 and the sl2h...

          Re: Dinky vs Soloist

          Hmm, for starters, any Jackson with "professional" on the headstock is made in Japan. But the high end ones (XL, and Custom) are on par with the USA instruments of the time, the XL and Customs were AFAIK produced both in Japan and in Ontario, CA. Specs are 100% identical, BTW.

          As far as the axes mentioned: The main difference between a Dinky and a Soloist is that (production) Dinkys are Bolt-on, while Soloists are Neck-thru. The Soloist neck is a bit thicker, but not significantly slower or any less comfortable. Dinkys are a tad smaller, as well, btw.

          I play and love both as my main guitars, and own 2 of each (96 Custom Shop Dinky Reverse, 97 DK-1, 87 Charvel Model 6, 88 Soloist). Just dont ask me to choose between the two. THe Soloists are a bit fatter tonally, but also a wee bit less articulate. But I can play all 24 frets effortlessly, the highest regions of bolt-ons I prefer to avoid

              They cost about the same

              But from what Im understanding you like thin necks, there the Dinky is about as fast as it gets (Just drove my DK-1 on a new track @260bpm without breaking too much of a sweat )

              But the Soloist is ultimately more playable IMO.

              The question boils down to (in a nutshell):

              Are you a more percussive, expressive player that generally avoids the 20+ frets but needs absolute speed? Dinky.

              Or are you a "soloist" that tries to cover as many bases as possible without getting lost tonally or on the fretboard? Then the Soloist may float your boat better.

              But either is a beautiful guitar for a cheap price, and both can be seen in the hands of wuite a few semi-pro and pro players. I think Im a good example, I love both so much I refuse to choose, Id call all 4 my main axe

                  mmm, after this... i think that the neck is the most important thing of an axe, so if i am going to sound more expressive because of the neck i prefer that more than being getting lost tonally (on the fretboard??) but btw i am the lead player of one of my bands and the another lead player of the other one...

                    Re: Dinky vs Soloist

                    The "expressiveness" and articulation comes from the added brightness and faster response of the bolt-on, not the neck profile.

                    Id definitely try both if at all possible. If nothing else, stop by my pad if youre in Germany any time soon

                      Re: Dinky vs Soloist

                      whatever, i want expressive and articulated sounds...the problem is that trying a guitar one hour or even 2 aint enough to decide...i did it last week...and so i asked the forum...but if you, (that knows by playing a lot of time with them how they feel or sound, etc) tell me that the dinky is better to get articulated sounds and "expressiveness", i can decide now what will i get...i have a winner...ill go for the dinky

                      ok...so THANKS a lot dudes (also xerxes and jacksonshredhead) ...and btw i want to travel germany as soon as possible...if i do, i will tell you and pay for a couple beers or whatever right?

                      see ya
