Sleek Body with Shred-Ready Accessories

Constructed from an mahogany body with a quilted maple top, the Jackson Soloist Pro is carved in the "Super Strat" body shape, offering high fret access and comfort for players. The carve in the back of the body and lightweight design will help you keep playing away without feeling fatigued.

The guitar features a recessed Floyd Rose FRT-02000 double-locking tremolo, ready to take on your deepest dive-bombs and pull-ups. The volume knob is conveniently located for easy volume swells, as is the pickup selector switch.

Versatile Pickups Add Range

Equipped with a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers, the Pro Soloist SL2Q can deliver more types of tones than its heavy-metal aesthetics might lead on. A JB TB-4 in the neck position provides a warm voicing for creamy and thick lead tones, while the SH-1 '59 in the bridge draws its sound from legendary "Patent Applied For" humbuckers. Yes, these pickups can handle metal, but they do justice to blues, rock, and jazz as well.

Smooth and Seamless Neck

Jackson outfitted this Pro Soloist with a 3-piece maple neck set into the body. It's designed to play fast, with a 12" to read more 16" compound-radius ebony fretboard that gets flatter toward the high frets for more comfortable lead playing. The back of the neck is oiled so your hands can easily slide up the neck just in time to rip out a solo. The neck is also strengthened with graphite reinforcement, so it stays true to shape in all climates.

I spent a lot of time researching guitars that are built for shredding. I got the opportunity to play a Dinky with the compound radius fretboard with the maple board. I was almost going to purchase that until I happened across the SL2. Right away I saw all the must haves that I was looking for. After looking at it for a day or two, I decided to bite the bullet and take a shot on it. I'm so glad I did. You cannot go wrong with this guitar.
I love the pickup choice. The JB and 59' are a great combination. I like the punch and warmth the ebony fretboard gives it and the harmonics are crystal clear.
Like I said, I love the ebony fretboard. It's fast and plays like butter. I really like the finish on the back of the neck, you don't have to worry about your hand slowing by sticking to the neck as with a gloss finish. Quilted maple top was darker than I expected which was actually a good thing. The Floyd is not the knock off, it's the real deal.
Ease of Use
A little tuning and it was ready to shred.
So far, everything looks great. No blemishes, and everything was put together properly.
In my opinion, its an excellent value. It has features that are normally installed on higher end instruments. There is remorse or second guessing this purchase.
Manufacturer Support
not sure yet. Hope I never have to find out.
The Wow Factor
I love the speed and versatility this guitar offers.
