What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones

Gloss lacquer finish Protects well, promotes aging, preserves tonality

The Jackson name has always been synonymous with state-of-the-art guitar technology and playing, leading the way in crafting instruments that exceed the demands of modern players.

Boasting Jackson's trademark high-speed playability and performance with a mid-range price tag, the X Series Soloist SL4X guitar is also the only product in the current lineup to offer a triple single-coil pickup route configuration.

With a third Duncan Designed HR-101 Hot Rails pickup added between the neck and bridge pickup, we've unlocked an even wider and more versatile range of tones. Hot wound rails coupled with a powerful ceramic magnet power this musical beast with the aggressive crunch and sustain hard rock and metal styles demand. With single volume and tone controls and a five-way blade switch, players can explore a variety of pickup combinations, while a Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo (recessed for picking hand comfort) bridge system provides superior string stability, sustain and dynamic tremolo action.

Featuring a 25.5" scale length, the SL4X is crafted out of basswood and coupled with a one-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, providing stability against the ravages of the road. Wrapped in white binding, its 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard features 24 jumbo frets and dot inlays.

I want to start off by saying the only con i have found with this instrument and that is the set up..when i received the guitar it was so out of whack it was pretty much unplayable, that being said, after adjusting the neck and a few little tweaks i am extremely happy with the way this guitar sounds and plays. The action is very low, the neck is thin and fast, and the single coil pickups are very clear and bring a clarity to each string that i was really surprised by. I've owned over a dozen good quality guitars with this similar body style (esp 1000, ibanez egen8, fenders, other jacksons) but i have to say this plays better than anything i've played in years and maybe ever. I looked around a while before i decided to get it and decided on this guitar for the features and price. I have to say i'm not disappointed at all and don't think i could've found a guitar i liked any better even if i paid over 1,000..I purchased the orange and when people say it's brighter than the pics they are telling the's about the color of a construction cone..I love it and would recommend this guitar to anyone who plays rock
