So I read that Jackson Dinky guitars have a slightly smaller than average guitar body (7/8 according to the almighty Wikipedia). I checked the Jackson site and it said the scale length was 25.5"
Would this in any way effect the sound it produces than compared to if it were regular sized?
Why would they even make slightly smaller guitars like that? For smaller built people? Seems sort of a random act to me.

If you have to ask then chances are you probably won't.
It's probably a comfort design more than anything

It's smaller so it's lighter; a lot of 'metal' 'shred' guitars have smaller or thinner bodies.

I have a Jackson dinky, and maybe I need to get out the tape measure but I don't believe it's 25.5" scale length. I'll try to get back to you.

EDIT: yep I just measured it, it is. Looks small to me though!

i think the compund radius (idk if urs has it) throws you off a bit because its really skinny at the top

Body size and scale length have what exactly to do with one another? Those dinky bodies are comfy though imo.

fretz is absolutely right.

i dunno, maybe a teeny bit, but it's probably pretty subtle.

it's very comfy. i think that's why they did it.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Compound radius means the fretboard gets flatter, not that the neck gets thinner.


Yes, i know what a compound radius is. When u look at it from the front the neck up to the 12 fret is more rounded off and then geys flatter. I was just trying to say that the rounder lower frets could throw off your eyes and make the guitar look small/weird
