    Comments about Jackson SLATTXMG3-6 Soloist Electric Guitar:

    well to tell the truth I did send this guitar back ,I loved it, but the thing is I was looking for a different sound. I have another Jackson that is one of my favorite guitars and it sounded just like this one.so I sent it back and ordered a different guitar, but if it was not for my other Jackson, i would keep this one. I did play it for a few days and did like it a lot, did not find any problems with it. the set up on this guitar was great right out of the box, the color was great, it sounded fantastic and if any of my friend ask me what I think I would recommend it .if they are looking for a guitar for, soloing, rocking out flat out heavy metal music this is sweet for that type of music

      Comments about Jackson SLATTXMG3-6 Soloist Electric Guitar:

      This was my first non Gibson guitar and first active pickup guitar. It took awhile to get used to, but now I love it. I changed the strings to Ernie Ball Hybrids, detuned it a half step, adjusted the truss rod and now it is what I need. The pickups sound great through my Marshall DSL40C with heavy gain. The finish was also excellent. There were some minor cosmetic issues on the side of the neck, but nothing too bad. I would recommend this for metal playing.

      Comments about Jackson SLATTXMG3-6 Soloist Electric Guitar:

      I'm playing the guitar through a Peavey XXL 212 when ever I get a chance to crank it up but I'm typically using my Digitech RP500 modeler. The guitar excels in hard rock and metal genres but if you have a versatile amp classic rock can be done. The neck pick up sound could even work for a jazz/fusion type sound. I even use this guitar at church for contemporary Christian music. I've been experimenting with really using the volume knob on this guitar as well to clean it up and take some of the aggression out of it. But if full on aggression is your thing it delivers!

      The guitar is obviously slanted towards hard rock and metal genres with the EMG pick ups and it does that style quite well. The EMG 81 in the bridge has a lot of note definition in the attack and can handle copious amounts of gain without turning to mush or getting noisy. Power chords are big and full and leads slice through a mix but high notes with the tone at 100% can become somewhat shrill. The EMG 85 in the neck actually sounds hotter than the EMG 81. It has a lot more bass response than the 81 making it sound beautiful with clean rhythms. The neck pick up really excels with high gain lead playing though, where it's slightly louder than the 81 but much smoother.

      As good as the pick ups are there are some issues with sound that are the fault of either the construction or tone woods used. The E and F notes on the G string (frets 9 &10) on my guitar are pretty dead. The problem is related to neck resonance not high frets/low action. Placing a capo on the headstock helps the problem substantially by moving the dead spot to 'D' and reducing it significantly. This issue is annoying but can be dealt with. Honestly if I had been able to play this guitar in a store this issue may have been a deal killer.

      Straight out of the box the action was way too low (less than a millimeter at the 24th fret) and buzzed everywhere. Luckily adjusting the tune-o-matic bridge is a piece of cake and I replaced the 9's with 10's and had it set up in minutes. The truss rod was adjusted properly out of the box. All of the electronics have a very professional feel as I assume it's all EMG stuff under the hood. The knobs and three way switch have a solid feel and the input jack is a nice tight fit. Surprisingly the stock tuners feel really good, they're very tight and have no slop when turning them and the guitar stays in tune very well even with big bends. There are flew blemishes though. There is a small scratch under the clear coat near the volume pot. There are a couple slight visible flaws in the rosewood fingerboard but nothing that effects play-ability. The frets themselves have been finished well and I've noticed no high frets anywhere, the fret ends are all tucked into the black plastic binding neatly.

      Overall it's not bad but not great. Considering the price most of the money goes to the EMGs and tone-pros bridge not leaving much for the construction and tone woods.

          Worst paint job I have ever seen on a guitar. Scratches everywhere, flat spots, haze in paint. loose tone pot. Very disapointing.

          The guitar itself sounds good, nice action.

          Comments about Jackson SLATTXMG3-6 Soloist Electric Guitar:

          I currently own the following Jackson DK2, KE3, SLXT, and a Custom Shop SL2H and this guitar follows in their footsteps without hiccup. I got the Cobalt blue version and it looks stunning in person. It is made in Indonesia while my SLXT was made in India... Instruction booklet has a lot of good information that will assist the average player in setting up the guitar with out a trip to the local luthier or guitar store. Mine has a bit a fret buzz after about a week of owning it, but it is winter time and I drove it in my car from North Carolina to Mississippi so I expected to have to do some setup work to it which is no fault of the manufacturing process. Paint job is really good although you can see faintly where the thru body neck was glued to the wings which some may not like but to me I can prove that it truly is a thru body guitar and like I said it is only visible under a desk lamp light on the work bench. My only real gripe and its a major one is the Serial Number is on a sticker on the backside of the neck which makes it too easy to peel off and deny ownership. This is a big no go when the SLXT that I bought 6 months ago has it's S/N stamped into the fretboard. This one should too and I will stamp it myself if I can find a stamp set cheaply. I gave this guitar 4 stars only because of the Serial Number Sticker, other than that the playability and quality of build is 5 stars all day long.
