Jackson Soloist SLX Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • High-performance design puts you in touch with your music
  • Through-body maple neck and Floyd Rose = prodigious sustain and divebomb-ability
  • An excellent set of Duncan Designed 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 SLX, gives you a closer connection to your music. For instance, the Soloist SLX 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 SLX also gives you epic sustain.

Through-body maple neck and Floyd Rose = prodigious sustain and divebomb-ability

From bow to stern, the Jackson Soloist SLX is set up for mammoth sustain. You get a through-body maple neck - a proven sustain-enhancing construction method - and a Floyd Rose Special double locking 2-point vibrato. Top that off with two ferocious active Duncan Designed humbuckers, and you've got a recipe for slippery-pitch expressiveness - with rock-solid tuning stability and endless sustain.

An excellent set of Duncan Designed 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 SLX with a set of extra-hot Duncan Designed humbucking pickups. AHB-103N pickup at the neck and a HB-102B at the bridge give you well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids and crunching highs.

Jackson Soloist SLX 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 Duncan Designed humbucking pickups gives you a huge range of tone

Jackson SLX X Series Soloist

A neck-through at around $500 is a deal. Played it for a day, then took it to my luthier to lower the nut, fret dressing, and replace pickups (I do this with any guitar). A $500 to $600 Guitar you take to a professional luthier will be the same as a $2000 guitar off the shelf. Great deal if you are willing to get all manufacturer defects resolved (these are mass produced by Fender overseas and imported). The real Duncan's are great pickups but overpriced in my opinion, so I like these came with "Duncan designed" so I wasn't paying more to throw them away. This is the foundation of a great guitar, but did not roll off the production line measuring up to its full potential. Love me the bigger neck and 24 frets, rounds out my collection for songs with a faster style. Sweetwater is amazing as always, Ryan is the man. I wish I could just buy everything in life from Sweetwater, even groceries. Guitar is 3-star, Sweetwater is an 11.
