Jackson SLX Soloist Electric Guitar

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!

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Jackson products.

Sound: 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. Feature: 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. Overall: 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.

Sound: I found that the stock Duncan Designed H102 pickups sounded a bit muddy and tended to smear the mids. Rolling back the volume cleans up the sound as expected, but rolled off the highs as well. In the week or so I've been playing this guitar, I've already installed an EMG 81/85 set and replaced the Korean made Floyd Rose Special with a German made Floyd Rose Original term. These two mods have made this guitar sound a lot more defined in the mids. Feature: The Soloist neck through body design at an affordable price should be very attractive to an intermediate guitarist who wants a well built instrument they can modify or upgrade. The neck thru design makes playability in the 12 to 24th fret area a lot easier than a comparable bolt on or set neck. The Basswood body keeps the guitar light which has been great for long practice sessions and extended sets. The zinc alloy Floyd Rose Special is good trek, but in my opinion deadened the resonance and lacked the sustain I'm used to getting out of steel Floyd. Ease of Use: The trek needed to be adjusted and reintonated when I received as I tune a half step down. I am sure it would have been spot on in standard tuning. The action is low and buzz free. In every way the feel and action was comparable to my Pro Series Rhoads RR5. Except, I had to redress the frets as they were not properly polished and felt gritty. Quality: The guitar is very well made at the price point the guitar is targeted for. I would consider another if Zzounds offered the product in its slime green color option. I would however consider making the same changes. I would also consider a pro series sl2 given the costs of the mods I have made. Value: I feel the Jackson SLX is a great value when compared to other Superstrats in this price range. A person would be hard pressed to find a comparable neck thru guitar at this price point. Manufacturer Support: I have never had a problem with a Jackson that I've owned. The Wow Factor: For the intermediate guitarist and even some pros this might be an easy buy just from the fact that it's hard to find a neck thru guitar with this quality of build. And upgraded pickups are easy to come by, and you can make it sound the way you would like. Overall: A great value for a neck thru guitar. You will not find a comparable guitar at this price point.
Style of Music: I play rock, metal, blues and fusion Jazz.
