RARE Jackson JAPAN Professional DR3 ASH Dinky dk 2H Reverse Electric Guitar usa designed pickups mij

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


Here's a rare and vintage 1995 (pre-Fender) Jackson DR3 (Dinky Reverse) electric guitar in excellent condition. (See photos as they are of course part of the description.) MADE IN JAPAN QUALITY. (Sadly, the Jackson Japan factory (Chushin Gakki) ceased production in or about 2012, and most of the Jackson instruments being produced today in other countries are widely considered to be cheaply made.) And rosewood is currently no longer used due to an international ban. (Hopefully they exempt musical instruments soon.)

Stunning and rare SWAMP ASH body covered with a thin blue stain to show off the gorgeous wood grain. (These ash ones rarely appear for sale.) USA-designed Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups (which are finally getting their due respect. Many collectors of this guitar prefer these stock pickups even over their USA counterparts.) 3-way selector switch, Volume & Tone knobs, Takeuchi Jackson-branded licensed Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo, maple neck with an absolutely gorgeous, thick rosewood fretboard with mother of pearl REVERSE inlays.  Do your research. These are among the finest guitars that Jackson ever produced, and they rivaled their USA line of guitars at the time. Weighs in at a very comfortable 7.8 pounds.

Awesome H-H pickup configuration. Think Mick Thompson of Slipknot or Doug Aldrich's signature model. Why pay thousands more just because the company puts out a 'signature' model of this guitar? Unless you're just going to display it, you would get just as much enjoyment (if not more!) from this beauty.

The guitar does have a few blemishes expected from a vintage intrument, but they are mostly small and take nothing away from its overall beauty. The headstock face has a couple of very small impressions/blems, and there is a small (pencil eraser size) ding/impression along the top edge that is not noticeable from the front. NO wood or paint is missing there.

The neck is to die for: Straight, low action with virtually zero fret wear, smooth-as-glass backside and sounds KILLER both with clean tones and heavy distortion. This is one guitar that plays so comfortably that you won't want to put it down.

No trem arm is included but you can find a replacement arm (screw-on type) here or on eBay for little money.   The Jackson hardshell shown is included. Was neatly modified slightly by a previous owner to accommodate the reverse headstock.  Case is in average condition and is missing one latch, but all 'feet' and hinges are intact and functioning and will definitely protect the guitar.

Listed elsewhere so don't procrastinate. A very nice example of early Japanese quality and craftsmanship. On a side note, I own several high-end vintage Ibanez RG's (550, 570, 770) and I actually get just as much enjoyment strumming this neck as opposed to those. The neck profiles are nearly identical.

Reasonable offers only will be considered. Thanks for looking.
