    Comments about Jackson JS11 Dinky Electric Guitar:

    I've bought many guitars over the years... made here and abroad. And I can be very picky about things. I'm totally blown away at the build quality of this instrument... it's very impressive. Don't let the price fool you. These truly are diamonds in the rough. My recommendation would be to get one before they're gone.

    Comments about Jackson JS11 Dinky Electric Guitar:

    Great second/backup guitar or nice for a starter at a low low price. Overall a really fun one to own. Speed neck feels really great, also nice for small hands or anyone learning to play. Fun super-strat type guitar to modify. Pickup output is very good, (a noticeably higher volume compared with either MIM Strat or Epiphone Les Paul) but with none of the strat pickup buzz, very quiet when not playing. Bridge pickup has great harmonics for rock or metal and leads, neck pickup can get a nice blues strat type tone if you have a nice amp. The 3-way blade pickup switch was quiet when used. Tuners were alright, replaced with Grover mini rotomatics. Body is comfortable and very light, lighter than a MIM strat, because it is 7/8 the size of a strat. If you like using a Floyd Rose type tremolo this is not for you, move to a Floyd equipped model. I had the tremolo blocked Eric Clapton style with 2 trimmed wood blocks placed inside the back interior tremolo system. Would have preferred a hard tail bridge. The metallic blue finish was top notch, really sharp.

      Comments about Jackson JS11 Dinky Electric Guitar:

      I wanted something that was easy to tune, easy to play, and easy to own. The Jackson JS11 is just it. No complaints from me. I tune this thing in less than 10 seconds. I can't take away from the feel and the sound quality. Sounds really good through the amp, plays smooth, and I started to even pick up more as I went along. I haven't played something like this since I was a teen. It doesn't have the complications of a Floyd Rose (they are great but can be a chore at times), but it does play with great quality. I took the whammy bar out and had a ball. It's hard to put it down.

          Comments about Jackson JS11 Dinky Electric Guitar:

          Did not and would NOT buy one of these Chinese models without trying it first. I purchased mine at a music store in Everett, WA. I was slowly leaving the store after picking up some strings and decided to pull a sub-200 Jackson off the wall just to see how bad it was and in less than ten minutes, I was paying for it and carrying it to my car. It kind of feels like an old Charvel Model 1 from the 80's, without a real smooth oiled neck, if that makes any sense. Was pleasantly surprised with the pickups and the hardware isn't even that bad. Once I swapped and stretched out a fresh pair of 11 gauge strings, it managed to stay in tune mostly. I lucked out with the build quality of mine, but others I've tried have played poorly and amounted to little more than expensive firewood.

                Comments about Jackson JS11 Dinky Electric Guitar:

                I have been playing guitar for about twenty plus years. I'm very particular about what I play.
                Being on a bugget makes it important to get the right guitar for a fair price. This guitar was
                not expensive and even on sale. I bought it after playing on it for over an hour at the local
                GC. Took it home, played on it all evening. Next day gave it a set up and leveled the frets.
                Didn't have to replace the pickups or change out the tuners. It kept it's great tone and stayed
                in tune with no constant ajustment. Loved it so much that I ordered and bought another one
                from MF and never had ANY regret! Both guitars are used for live performance, as well as studio
                recording. It just goes to show, ya can't judge any guitar by the price you pay for it!
