An Entry-level Guitar You May Never Outgrow

With distinctive looks, aggressive tone, and impressive playability, the Jackson JS22 Single Cut solidbody electric guitar has classic Jackson appeal at a great price. The high-output ceramic humbucking pickups sound intense and can easily take your amplifier from clean sounds to metal territory. Expect many years of reliable playability, thanks to the graphite-reinforced neck with compound-radius fretboard. Learn to play longer runs across more of the neck, with the contour cut heel for easier fret access. Guitarists at Sweetwater agree, the Jackson JS22 Single Cut solidbody electric guitar packs a lot of value.

Jackson JS22 Single Cut Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Aggressive tone delivered by ceramic-magnet humbucking pickups
  • Plays fast across the entire fretboard
  • Sturdy neck that's built to last
Aggressive tone delivered by ceramic-magnet humbucking pickups

The Jackson JS22 Single Cut packs a pair of ceramic humbucking pickups and can deliver a wide tonal range. Pickups with ceramic magnets are popular in heavier music styles due to their high output, exceptional clarity, and wide frequency response. That also makes them perfect for most other styles too, giving you a robust guitar signal for further sculpting with pedals and your amplifier's tone controls.

Plays fast across the entire fretboard

As your playing speeds up, the Jackson JS22 Single Cut won't get in your way. The compound-radius fretboard is rounder near the nut for easier chords, and it flattens out as you move up the neck for faster melodic playing. And you'll find it's comfortable to play up to the highest frets, thanks to the contour cut heel that helps you transition to the highest registers on the fretboard.

Sturdy neck that's built to last

Your guitar's neck takes a lot of abuse, between your playing and the constant string tension. The Jackson JS22 Single Cut boasts a graphite-reinforced maple neck, designed to resist twisting and warping over the years.

Jackson JS22 Single Cut Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Powerful tone and impressive playability at a great price
  • Great-looking quilt maple top beneath a transparent finish
  • Wide-ranging, high-output tone from 2 ceramic-magnet humbucking pickups
  • Rigid maple neck is reinforced with graphite for long-term reliability
  • Compound-radius fretboard flattens out towards higher frets for faster playability
  • Perfect for modern metal, with enough sonic flexibility to play in any genre
Don't settle for a no-name budget guitar - get the Jackson JS22 Single Cut.
