Hello!, I got this guitar about 3 years ago now.The previous owner sed it was his back up guitar from his show days back in the 90's. (he also sed it was under his bed for a portion of that time) Its beautiful to play, a really respectful catch in my eyes. but enough with that,

I have bin looking around and can not find out when it was made the serial number 88598

I may be wrong, but if it's bolt-on doesn't that make it a Dinky, not a Soloist?

Nah, pretty sure the Dinky always has a bolt-on, Soloist is neck-thru. I don't think the pickups affect the name. Oh, I think they do the San Dimas which is bolt-on too, but that might just be Charvel

Yeah, the 'San Dimas' is the name that they're giving to a regular strat body. As far as I know the only one that Jackson make at the moment is the Adrian Smith signature model.

I suppose they chose the name because they made a lot of strat bodied guitars back in the '80s when they were based at San Dimas, CA.

This guitar isn't necessarily from that factory, though, since they kept using San Dimas labelled neck plates even after the factory moved to Ontario, CA. In fact, with that serial number I'd guess it was an Ontario.

Being a bolt on is perfectly normal. They have made plenty of USA Dinkies over the years. Seeing a USA bolt on would only be odd if it was one of the other body shapes like a Rhoads or a Kelly.

Since it's bolt-on, it's either a Dinky or a Fusion. To find out for sure, take the neck off the guitar and you'll find the info written in the neck pocket.
