What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Alder body with flamed maple top Lightweight body with stunning flame grain
Neck-through-body construction Longer sustain; strong midrange; smooth feel
Seymour Duncan JB TB4 humbucking pickup High output, singing highs and powerful low end
Custom swirl finish Unique, eye-catching nitrocellulose lacquer finish
The Jackson SL2H Soloist electric guitar is ready to shred all over the place. This is a high-end guitar built for serious power and speed. It was most definitely designed with the serious metalhead in mind! This USA-made Jackson Soloist is loaded with two distinctive Seymour Duncan pickups to deliver sizzling hot outputs when you're taking your solo, and rich and mellow tones when want to pull back on a ballad. The bridge is an original Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo, so you can bend your notes like crazy while maintaining clarity and control.

A Fast and Furious Design

The Jackson SL2H Soloist has an 8-pound alder body with a flamed maple top that looks striking under its transparent colored gloss finish. The guitar is a neck-thru-body construction that feels rock-solid in your hands, and helps you deliver endless sustaining notes. The neck itself is quarter-sawn maple with an ebony fingerboard, with mother-of-pearl Shark Fin inlays on 10 of the 24 jumbo frets. It measures .790 inches at the 3rd Fret and .850 inches at the 12th Fret. The whole guitar has a 25.5-inch scale length.

The strong black-on-chrome tuners are perfectly calibrated to work with in harmony with the Floyd Rose Original double-locking 2-point tremolo. With such precision hardware onboard, you're guaranteed astonishing tuning stability, even when the tremolo is getting heavy use.

Preloaded with Top-of-the-Line Electronics

The pickups on the SL2H are real gems. The Seymour Duncan TB4 in the bridge position is a world-famous and much-beloved humbucker, delivering a massive output with sparkling treble definition. With the TB4, you'll be instantly dialing up great singing leads and bright, pure harmonics. Meanwhile, the Seymour Duncan '59 SH1N in the neck is constructed with a plain enamel wire, long legged bottom plate, and vintage single conductor cable. Its tone has slightly more scooped mids for chordal and rhythm playing. Both pickups are vacuum wax-potted for squeal-free performance.

Case Included

The Jackson SL2H Soloist Electric Guitar comes with a molded black plastic hard case, weighing 19 pounds with the guitar inside.

""The Blue Shark""
Overall: What more can I say that hasn't already been said.....! This guitar is hands down "Beautiful"....! When I first saw it on zZounds site I knew I had to have it. The lines of the SL2H Soloist are INSANE.......!!! You should see this Bad Boy in the sun. The Transparent Blue looks amazing...! This guitar is extremely well built, the neck is ultra smooth, the weight is perfect, and it sounds incredible....! The one thing I wish Jackson would start doing is wrap the body with a binding like Les Paul and Shechter do, that would be the icing on the cake. You won't regret buying this guitar....!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Incredible sound! Astute design! Top shelf quality guitar in both physical appearance and sound. I will never look back."
Sound: Best guitar I've ever owned! Bought it right here from Zzounds about 3 years ago. The sound is incredible for soloing! I can get any sound I like out of it, blues, rock, jazz, metal, it's all there! Some people may like different pickups, but I have no problems and will never change them! Also, the old saying holds true to "crap in, crap out" and with this guitar it's "gold in, gold out". Everything I plug it into sounds great! Either an expensive Marshall or a cheap Digitech or PoD product, it all sounds great! This guitar will make you want to practice more, that's how great it sounds! (note, I do not work for Fender or Jackson). Feature: Floyd Rose, Mother of pearl inlays, Seymour Duncan's, the best quality stuff you can find. This guitar is almost exactly the same as the KV2 other than the body shape. Ease of Use: I've been playing this guitar every day for about 3 years now and find it very hard to put down. This guitar plays like butter and when you put some finger ease string lubricant on it, you will play like lightning and thunder! Arpeggios are but a breeze on this thing. I feel like I can play anything. Quality: The quality of this guitar is what i call craftsmanship, it's not that heavy nor too light. After 3 years of everyday playing it is only now starting to go out of intonation a little and the Floyd Rose screws are getting a little rusty, but i live in a high humidity climate so that is expected. Value: They could easily have charged more for this and I would have still bought it and kept it. The only other guitar I found to have sound equally as good would be, a high end Hamer Elite. I think it is a fair value for someone who is serious about playing guitar. I mean, why else would Randy Rhoads, Marty Friedman, Kerry King, Etc. play them? Because they are just like a vintage Marshall stack, "You've tried all the rest, now try the best". Manufacturer Support: Never had to call Jackson/Fender! I'm a guitar tech myself so I support myself when needed. The Wow Factor: This guitar has alot of "sex appeal"! When you wear it and play it, women will flock to you like blind sheep! Honestly? Nobody ever notices the guitar once they hear the sound coming from it. Overall: Overall, this is the best guitar I've ever played or owned! I will answer the questions they ask to the best of my knowledge.. How long do you expect to be satisfied with this product before searching for another product? It has been 3 years now and I am very satisfied. Will you supplement it or replace it? never. What would lead you to search for another product - would you wear this out, seek some specific feaures, keep this but seek additional or different sounds and features? The only thing that would lead me to another product would be cash overflow. How would you compare this product to others you considered, and why did you choose this one (if you bought it)? This guitar is top of the shelf. I originally had bought a KV2, after finding it was exactly the same as this guitar, I went with this one instead because of the body shape and the fact that I sit down while playing.
