Jackson Pro Soloist SL2Q MAH Guitar

Shred in comfort and style with the innovative Jackson Pro Soloist SL2Q MAH, the final word in high-tech guitar design. A high performance evolution of the electric guitar, this instrument opens up a world of playability, resetting the bar of what's possible in guitar design. Unlock your full potential as a player and realize your musical dreams.

The 12"-16" compound radius fingerboard is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing -- more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.

Chosen specifically for their complementary sound, a pair of modern Seymour Duncan Distortion humbucking pickups drives this guitar's versatile sound, combining for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for pristine cleans and snarling distortion. Master volume and tone controls shape the pickups' output, which can be further refined with the three-position pickup toggle switch for the precise voice required to bring your musical vision to life.

Dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose FRT-O5000 double-locking tremolo bridge, recessed for pick hand comfort and providing laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning when combined with the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut. The ergonomic Soloist body shape is designed for player comfort and increased balance, eliminating the dread "neck dive" that has brought many a headstock to a sad, untimely end.

The Lamborghini of guitars, Jackson has a proud history of creating instruments that are as easy on an audience's eyes are they are to the player's fingers and ears. All the famous Jackson appointments are here -- black nickel hardware, a durable gloss finish, alumiloid piranha neck inlays, single ply neck binding and Jackson's signature pointed 6-In-Line headstock exhibit bold taste. Not for the faint of heart, the Pro Soloist SL2Q MAH is ideal for pro-level players who demand the ultimate in high performance guitars.

4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "worth it"
Overall: Just got this guitar today 04/02/2016 sent back a esp with emg that I wasn't happy with. This guitar was a different story, looks feel sound blows the esp away. The neck is awesome and the pickups rock. This is suppose to be a metal machine and it is, but select the neck and tweak the volume and the cleans sound great to. No problems with the trem other than a small adjustment to level it out other than that seems set up pretty well. My only issue was which color to get root beer or trans blue both are gorgeous. I'm no pro or anything but in my opinion you wont go wrong getting this guitar. I bought the case for mine would recommend you do to. Didn't rate manufacturer support because haven't used them.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Jackson Pro Soloist sl2q mah"
Sound: For my style for rock and metal, and even blues, it meets all my needs there. It has a nice ability to squeal very easily and harmonics are easy to perform as well. Feature: I really like the Floyd Rose on this, it is so easy to use, not post issues when I lowered the action, just make sure you know you will have to adjust the screws on the back a little if you start to tune sharp. I had that problem, but now it is all adjusted nicely. I really like the fact that the guitar is not heavy, and I can stand and play for hours without noticing how much it weighs. The tremolo bar works well for flutter action and deep and pull up action for the floyd. No retuning issues. Ease of Use: If you are not a good trouble shooter and have no idea what you are doing and cannot understand tutorials from Youtube, for the floating bridge, then is is not for you. It will need some minor adjustments to fit your gauge of strings and how you like to play. However, if that is all old hat for you, for the money this is a very nice guitar! Quality: I think this is made very well and sturdy, more sturdy than some Ibanez's in the same price range. I will probably get flack for that, but just saying. Value: YES. Manufacturer Support: I tried to email Jackson and didn't hear back from them, so I would not hold your breath if you need something from them the same day, they are not as responsive as I would have liked. However, zZounds is immediate! I love the support! The Wow Factor: I would buy it again. The neck took some getting used too, but it is thin and access is great, so nothing would change my mind about it now. Overall: I love the way the guitar sounds, looks, and plays. I was not disappointed and while this is my first real floating bridge Tremolo floyd rose system guitar. I so glad I decided to get it. First off the guitar's finish is stunning, to me I just love the way it looks and the pictures are no real justice to the in person view. I looked the guitar over in great detail and there were no, none, nada blemishes or issues with the finish or the functioning parts, the tuners, bridge, pickups, volume, toggle, binding, all in great shape. I checked the neck for any excessive bends, and the ebony fretboard was in great shape. I put out a YT vid on the unboxing. I bought the case with it as well. I didn't like the DAddario strings that it came with, they ALWAYS turn my fingertips black, and I changed them out after day one with Ernie Ball Cobalts.However, I had to unscrew the back plate and screw down the screws from the bridge down about 5 or 6 turns, I was tuning too sharpe and it caused a lot grief for me since I am all new to the process, but once I got it in tune, and lowered the action, it plays wonderfully. The pickups are high on the distortion end, which I don't mind for the metal I play. It does play clean as well but it is not deep in tone like my Gibson LP. I love this guitar.
