Epic Tone, Awesome Playability, and Killer Looks

With its killer action, over-the-top tone, and stunning good looks, the Jackson SLATTXMGQ3-6 is an ideal choice for aggressive guitarists who love the feel of stage lights and amped-up crowds. This solidbody electric guitar delivers the clean lines and simple setup Sweetwater guitarists expect from Jackson Soloist guitars, plus an eye-catching quilt maple top you have to admire. Its neck-through-body design gives you tons of sustain, and its compound-radius rosewood fingerboard lets you easily transition from solid riffing to high-throttle shredding. If you need speed, sustain, and killer metal tone, then a Jackson SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist is an affordable axe that's too good to pass up.

Jackson SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • High-performance design puts you in touch with your music
  • Ultra-responsive compensated bridge with string-through-body design
  • Classic EMG humbucker combo delivers amazing metal tone
High-performance design puts you in touch with your music

One of Jackson's mottoes is "Choose wisely. Play better." That's not just hype either. The fact is, a well made guitar, like a SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist, gives you a closer connection to your music. For instance, the SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist 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 SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist also gives you epic sustain.

Ultra-responsive compensated bridge with string-through-body design

If you love the stability and ultra-fast response of a hardtail bridge, then you'll love the tight action of the SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist. Jackson gave the SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist a high-quality compensated adjustable bridge. This highly stable setup locks down your action, keeps your intonation solid, and ensures that your harmonics are always crisp. Combined with the neck-through construction and string-through-body design, the SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist gives you truly epic sustain!

Classic EMG humbucker combo delivers amazing metal tone

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 SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist with a set of classic EMG humbucking pickups. An EMG 85 pickup at the neck and an EMG 81 at the bridge give you well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids, and crunching highs. It's an ideal combination for hard rock and metal.

Jackson SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A performance-built solidbody electric guitar made for metal and rock
  • Streamlined Jackson Soloist body style is incredibly comfortable to play
  • Basswood body with quilt maple top feels and looks phenomenal
  • Compound-radius fretboard lets you easily fret chords and perform solo runs
  • Graphite reinforced neck-through-body design delivers phenomenal sustain
  • Classic EMG 81/85 humbucking pickup combo delivers iconic metal tone
