Comments about Jackson SLATX6MG Soloist Electric Guitar:
My wife ordered me this guitar for Christmas. Because it was a large and expensive (for us at least) purchase, I was able to try it out before it was wrapped. Well ... for the most part everything about it was wonderful and just what you'd expect. I'm definitely not here to flame this guitar, as it is basically what I have wanted and dreamed of (Jackson Soloist, EMG 85 and 81 pickups, Floyd Rose Bridge, Black, etc.) for the last 18 years. However, the problems began as soon as I plugged it in. I turned up the volume from off to about midway, and everything was fine. Then, I continued turning it up, and the volume began cutting in and out altogether, only to completely go out at max volume. I suspect there is a wiring problem, or something faulty with the active pickups. Probably something tiny, but I did not want to have to pay to repair a brand new (and expensive) Xmas present out of the box. I tried replacing the battery (just in case) with no luck, so we returned it. Unfortunately, the item was not going to be in stock for almost 4 weeks. So, we chose a different (and very similar) item that is supposed to be in stock in about 1 week. Here's to hoping, because the "in stock date" for that item keeps changing as well (which seems to be an ongoing problem with Jackson Soloist guitars here and elsewhere). Musician's Friend intially wanted us to pay to have the first guitar repaired ourselves, and then so long as it was under a certain amount, they would give us store credit. I didn't find this acceptable, but it was something I suppose. I have noticed that this is a Musicians Friend exclusive, and it has not escaped my attention that a number of restocks have come in. I wonder if this is a widespread problem? Anyways, aside from not being able to get a replacement, and a potentially small (or large) wiring problem, I have nothing bad to say. Can't recommend it, as something this price shouldn't be faulty out of the box, and I shouldn't have to wait weeks and months for a replacement. But, good luck.
