Jackson Soloist SLATMGX3-6 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • High-performance design puts you in touch with your music
  • Genuine Floyd Rose Special for huge dive bombs
  • An excellent set of EMG pickups
High-performance design puts you in touch with your music

One of Jackson's mottos is "Choose wisely. Play better." That's not just hype either. The fact is, a well made guitar, like a Soloist SLATMGX3-6, gives you a closer connection to your music. For instance, the Soloist SLATMGX3-6 features a compound radius fretboard, which is more rounded at the nut and flatter higher up the neck. This makes it easy to fret chords near the nut, while opening up the fretboard for soloing. The flatter higher frets also let you keep your action low, without bottoming out when you bend notes. And thanks to its neck-through-body design, the Soloist SLATMGX3-6 also gives you epic sustain.

Genuine Floyd Rose Special for huge dive bombs

In typical Jackson fashion, this incredible guitar was built with nothing but quality hardware onboard. That's why they gave the Jackson Soloist SLATMGX3-6 guitar a real 2-point, double-locking Floyd Rose vibrato tailpiece. The light-weight Floyd Rose Special tremolo tailpiece gives you the real feel of an original Floyd Rose, adding to the SLATMGX3-6's amazingly responsive feel.

An excellent set of EMG pickups

Great feel is only part of the equation. Jackson knows this better than just about any guitar maker. That's why they've equipped the Soloist SLATMGX3-6 with a set of classic EMG humbucking pickups. An EMG 85 pickup at the neck and a EMG 81 at the bridge give you well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids and crunching highs.

Jackson Soloist SLATMGX3-6 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A performance-built solidbody electric guitar made for metal and rock
  • Streamlined Jackson Soloist body style
  • Compound radius fretboard lets you easily fret chords and pull off highly technical solos
  • Neck-through-body design adds phenomenal sustain
  • A pair of EMG humbucking pickups gives you a huge range of tone
Discover the world of amazing Jackson performance, with the Soloist SLATMGX3-6 solidbody electric guitar!

Never had a jackson before. Haven't had a guitar with a floyd rose in a long time. was very impressed with this guitar, it was a great choice. Holds tune so well, neck has a great feel, easy to play. EMG's were a big plus, most all my other guitars have the same pickups and they sound good.

Great guitar

What first caught my eye was the awesome look it has. I needed a guitar with a Kahler and a fast neck that wouldn't break the bank. After years of using passive pick ups it's great to now have a secondary guitar with EMG active pickups for a completely different tone, especially when laying down lead guitar tracks for solos! Very happy with it!!! Thanks to Drew Foster for helping me with this selection.
