What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Poplar body Lightweight hardwood known for bouncy tone
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
Jumbo frets Makes bending strings easier
Duncan Designed HB-103 pickups High-output tone; plenty of crunch and harmonics

The Jackson X Series Soloist SLX DX is a venerable double cutaway workhorse that offers many fine features desired by today's shredders.

The SLX DX features a poplar 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 laurel 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 with an expansive voice loaded with crunchy, full-bodied tone ideal for brazen lead work or punchy rhythms runs. Tone is fully customizable with three-way blade switching and single volume and tone controls, while a Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo bridge system provides superior string stability and dynamic tremolo action.

I was hesitant to get this because of the gold hardware. Now that I have it the gold is fine. Gives it a bit of different character. Actually like how it looks in person. Everything about this guitar is Nice. Price-nice. Action-nice. Feel-nice. Tone-nice. Playability-nice. Fretwork-nice. No dead spots or sharp ends some of the nicest fretwork I've seen in this price range. The pickups are nice enough but I will be changing them out for real Duncan's. I like a 59 in the neck and a custom trembucker in the bridge. ( T-B 5). I'm glad I bought this guitar.
