I have always been curious since I am getting a Jackson SLSMG. What exactly is the difference because they look almost exactly the same.

The Soloist is made just for that Solos. It has better upper fret acess, but I'm not exactly sure of the specifics of the rest.

Soloists have through necks while Dinkys are all bolt ons, also a Dinky body is 7/8 the size of a Soloist. There may be more differences but those are the two I'm aware of.

Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

The soloist is neck-through, American made, and has an original Floyd Rose on it.

The Dinky's are bolt-on necks, are foreign made (I think) and come with licensed Floyds.

From what I've been told, the Dinky is supposed to be built to the exact specs of a soloist, but for a cheaper price. Kinda like the Les Paul Studios opposed to the Standards. Could be wrong though

Not all soloists are USA made, and there are USA made Dinkys, too.

They make foreign Soloists now? Is that a post-Fender thing?

EDIT: Also, I wasn't sure about Dinky's being foreign made, so I looked it up. The only USA made Dinky is the Dinky DK1, which costs about as much as a Soloist does. Every other Dinky currently made is foreign

First I've heard of it. Pretty much definitely a post fender thing....damn shame.

The SLSMG, SL3MG, SLX, SLXQ,SLSXMG, SLXT, SLAT3-6, and SLAT3-7 are made in Asia IIRC.

Anything above the Pro series is American made.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.
