The JS22 Dinky Arch Top first appeared on our recommended list for Humbucker Equipped Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $200 from April 2019 until June 2020 when it had been out-ranked by other guitars.

Then in May 2021 it had high enough ratings to go back on our recommended list where it remains today.

Many of today's super strat guitars owe their staying power to guitar brands like Jackson. With the success of their Soloist model, Jackson helped establish the Super Strat as a distinct guitar category, rather than being a clone.

The JS22 Dinky follows after Jackson's tried and tested formula, only this one is more accessibly priced.

Noteworthy features include its arched top, dual high-output humbuckers, bound fingerboard and headstock and graphite reinforced neck.

With its shred friendly super strat + tremolo setup, this is a black guitar that is worth considering.
