A dinky's body is 7/8th's the size of a Soloist and a Soloist is always neck-through. Dinky's are always bolt-ons

It should be obvious, but there's a decided quality gap between the two.

Oh hey, another Sonny? That I don't see everyday. If you can afford it, go with a Soloist. If you can't, then go with Dinky.

The Dinky and Soloist body are exactly the same size and shape. They're both 7/8ths the size of a standard Stratocaster body. The only difference is that the Dinky is bolt on and the Soloist is neckthrough.

Also, if it's a shortscale, it's called a Fusion.

Also, depending on the model, the wood used is different too. So it depends on which Soloist model you want, compare to which Dinky model you want.

It's a nickname!! but still,
I'm not in the market for either, I'm and Ibanez man personally, but after seeing the ad, which wasn't too descriptive on the differences and my bandmate loving Jacksons, I got curious. I played a soloist in GC It's neck is a bit too thin. Even for me. But the sound is pretty wonderful. Especially with the duncans.

This isn't true. The Soloist's body is slightly bigger in size.

The deciding factor really is if you want neck thru (soloist) or bolt-on (dinky). And in terms of comparing you really have to compare the USA SL2 to the USA DK1. Both with OFR, dual humbuckers, and just high quality all around. I think most people think of the Japanese DK2, but forget/don't know there is is also the USA DK1. I own a USA DK1 because I prefer the smooth natural wood feel. The painted neck looks nice and all, but for playability I love bolt-on. Both are amazing guitars, it comes to preference.
