Jackson has announced three new additions to their X Series at Summer NAMM in Nashville - the Jackson X Series Dinky Arch Top DKAF7 MS, the Jackson X Series Dinky Arch Top DKAF8 MS and the Jackson X Series Kelly KEXT.
The fan-fretted Dinky models share many similarities with both featuring a mahogany body with an arched top, a maple neck, a dark rosewood fingerboard, and Jackson designed bridge saddles, staggered to accommodate two scale lengths.
The differences are a result of the strings - the seven-string Dinky has a 25.5”-27” multi-scale length, dual Jackson seven-string blade humbucking pickups, and AT-1 4x3 headstock, while the eight-string has a 26”-28” multi-scale length, eight-string humbucking pickups, and AT-1 4x4 headstock.
The Kelly KEXT features basswood body-wings with a mahogany top, Jackson high-output humbucking pickups, a three-way toggle switch, and a Jackson TOM-style bridge with an anchored tailpiece. It is available in a Natural Mahogany finish with gold hardware and white binding.
