"Comparable to MIJ Pro Series"

2020 purchase. This is my third Jackson Soloist and the quality is finally on par with my MIJ pro series guitars.Fit and finish is very good overall. I did have to adjust the setup on the guitar as I play 1/2 step down from standard tuning. Action is great at 1/8 inch with no buzzing. Neck is very stable in changing weather conditions (Central Texas). All electronics work as they should with no scratchiness to the pots. Frets were well dressed and polished from the factory. Oiled neck is comfortable. Be aware that the Duncan distortion in the bridge has a pronounced mid-range. It is nothing like the JB or Blackouts found on other models. This can serve you well depending on amp and genre/sub-genre you might be playing in.
Sound
The stock Duncan Distortion has a pronounced midrange to my ears. The Duncan Custom Flat Strat pickups definitely add chime in positions 4 & 5. I replaced the Duncan Distortion with a Seymour Duncan Jason Becker Perpetual Burn which has a more scooped sound with a slightly hotter than PAF wind.
Features
I’m a Floyd player so that has to be the most useful feature in the guitar for me.
Ease of Use
Playability with low action is really good with this guitar. I didn’t have to make any adjustments except to action and intonation because I play tuned 1/2 step down.
Quality
Quality and figment were comparable to my MIJ pro series Jackson.
Value
The value in this instrument was what I would expect from a new build in the pro series.
Manufacturer Support
No need to use it.
The Wow Factor
I don’t get wowed easily. A guitar is a tool to get me from point a to point b. It has to be playable out of the box. Everything else is personal customization. From switches, to pots, to pickups. I play for a living so that’s how I view a guitar. It helps me accomplish the task at hand.

If you're not use to a Floyd Rose, it will take some time to learn how to actually tune the thing. But this guitar is awesome. The neck is thin, and Frets are perfect. You can fly on this baby. I got rid of a PRS for this, and I haven't regretted it. Just get one. You won't be disappointed.
