What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Poplar body Lightweight hardwood known for bouncy tone
Laurel fingerboard Chocolate hue; similar feel and tone to rosewood
Floyd Rose Special tremolo Smooth and stable whammy work
Duncan Designed HR-101 Hot Rails pickups High-output humbucker tone in single-coil size

The Jackson X Series Soloist(TM) SLX DX is a venerable double cutaway workhorse that offers many fine features desired by today's shredders, including a poplar body and a through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and tilt-back scarf joint headstock. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays, its 12"-16" 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(TM) 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(R) Special double-locking tremolo bridge system provides superior string stability and dynamic tremolo action.
