Jackson Select Series SL1 Soloist Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Neck-through design
  • Weapon of choice
  • Stellar components and construction
Neck-through design

This guitar owes its great tone and sustain in great part to something you won't even notice at first glance: a neck-through-body design. The quartersawn hard rock maple neck, paired with an ebony fingerboard (adorned with mother-of-pearl shark fin inlays, no less) doesn't just join the body; it's actually part of the body! This configuration contributes to the sustain of the SL1 in a big way, since the entire guitar is integrated. You also get two great-sounding, high-output Seymour Duncan Classic Stack stacked humbuckers, with a TB4 humbucker in the bridge position. Add cool black hardware and a genuine Floyd Rose Original double-locking trem, and you're ready to rock!

Weapon of choice

From Def Leppard's Phil Collen and Rick Savage to James Root of Slipknot and Stone Sour and Derrick Green of Sepultura (just to name a few), some of the most formidable axe-slingers in rock have used Jackson guitars to generate their fretboard fireworks - for good reason! Jackson guitars are designed from the ground up for monster tone, amazing playability, and rock-solid reliability every time they take the stage or hit the studio. Of course, it doesn't hurt to look good, either; if you're looking for a visually stunning instrument to impress your audience and show that you mean business, you want a Jackson!

Stellar components and construction

What makes Jackson the solidbody electric guitar of choice for so many players? Start with the neck: high-quality hard rock maple with a comfortable, fast carve, it's joined to a premium ebony compound radius fingerboard and optimized for blazing leads and massive chords alike. Jackson guitar bodies are designed with killer tone and eye-catching looks in mind, providing distinctive body shapes while staying lightweight enough to play all night. Jackson uses premium Seymour Duncan pickups for ample output so you can get the most out of your amp. Top-flite hardware is another Jackson hallmark, including highly stable trems and dependable tuning machines.

The best

This is the best neck thru I have ever played, low action, great neck and killer sounding pickups, once I got it, I called Marshall Oliver and ordered another one! It arrived the next day perfectly set up, ready to go.
