Feature: What it does:
Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones
Duncan Designed HB-102B & HB-102N pickups Punchy and versatile with plenty of deep tone
Floyd Rose Special tremolo Smooth and stable whammy work
Compound radius fretboard Even, flatter feel moving up neck towards bridge

Distinctive and affordable, Jackson X Series Soloist SLX Electric Guitars are built for speed! Jackson’s venerable double cutaway workhorse offers many fine features desired by today's shredders.

The X Series Soloist SLX features a basswood body, through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and tilt-back scarf joint headstock. Hosting 24 jumbo frets, its 12"-16" fully bound compound radius rosewood fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out.

Duncan Designed alnico HB-103N (neck) and high-output ceramic HB-103B (bridge) humbucking pickups power this metal beast, which also includes single volume and tone controls, three-way blade switching and a Floyd Rose Special double-locking two-point tremolo bridge system for superior string stability, sustain and dynamic tremolo action.

Sleek and deadly, the SLX is available in a variety of stage-worthy finishes!

Great sounding guitar, well built, and finished. Not the color of burnt cherry sunburst you see online though, not even close. Out of the box I only had to tune and install the whammy bar, thats it! My last Jackson, I had to have a full set up done for a horrible rattle on the G and get the rest dialed in. Had the Kawasabi Green been available I would have grabbed that for sure or sent this back for it. Other than the color, I am very satisfied with my purchase from not only Jackson but zZsounds. My 10th purchase from them and every time it has been very smooth.
This is a great sounding guitar. Pick ups are SUPER hot. In the bridge position you get the classic metal sound for pinch squeals and the such showcasing the very trebly side of things, move to the middle position and you get a slight more mellow sound but still very clean and articulate using both the pickups, and the bridge position is great for rhythm guitar.
Great pickups for the money. I have owned other guitars with the EMG HZ system and was not impressed, but they sound great on this guitar.
Ease of Use
The SLXQ has a nice thin neck but the finish, I think, hinders the speed of movement. The finish looks NOTHING like it does online when you buy the Cherry Sunburst. No amount of light gives it that great look. Out of the box, this guitar took some tuning and that was it. Most of my guitars went to a luthier for setup, but not this time.
