OVERVIEW

Rocket-fire fast with sleek, dark style.

The Jackson SLSMG Soloist Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups is built to play fast. Mahogany neck-thru-body design streams a never-ending cascade of crunchy harmonics, thick sustain, and searing notes. Contoured arched-top body is slimmer for comfort and sharp appearance. Sonics are delivered through 2 exclusive Jackson-design EMG-HZ pickups and 3-way pickup switching. 25-1/2" scale neck with ebony fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets features smooth piranha-theme inlays and satin finish for fast fret work. Quality hardware includes a string-thru-body bridge, volume knob, tone knob, and die-cast tuners. Choose satin black or violin brown finish.

Jackson's compound-radius 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. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

Jackson Soloist SLSMG

By Maestro of Dalepcraft

from East Coast United States

This guitar has been my weapon for approx 4 years. Though I admire other axes, I don't regret choosing to weild this one. The 1st thing you notice is the tip-to-curve shadowy black finish, it's beautiful. The headstock & fretboard binding is quite nice too. The body's overall shape & balance is great, & surprisingly light. The string action is sweet, whether tuned to E with 009/042's or C# with 010/046's. Very comfortable to shred, sitting or standing. Though they aren't EMG-81's, the EMG-HZ pickups handle metal *very* well. I recommend this guitar to those that are interested.

Beautiful piece of craftmanship

By Ouroboros

from Canada

This guitar is fantastic. Picked it up with a set of 3+3 Sperzel Lock In Tuners. The stock tuners are great, but I prefer the Sperzel's as they are easily the best on the market.Active EMG's are some of the quietest pickups on the market, offering excellent tone and reliability.The body and neck are simply beautiful, not only aesthetically, but the ebony fretboard, along with some lemon oil, play smoother than anything else I've tried.I don't recommend sticking with the stock strings, and the action was a little low on the Low E, it was causing some slight buzz, so I had so make a small adjustment. But otherwise, the factory setup was perfect.All in all, this is definitely worth the price, and is one of the best, if not the best, mid-range guitar you can find for metal, rock, heck, it's so versatile and sleek, you will look good playing any style.

Jackson Guitar

By zakkthegreat-l6f1l

from Kentucky

I Have had this Guitar for about three months now and I love it. I put it through a zoom G2 pedal and a Roland cube. It sounds great, and I love the fact that there is no tremolo. I would definately buy this guitar again. My only complaints are the Pickups (I prefer 81's) and the finish. It chips very easily, so protect it.

lightning quick

By BMarleyFAN

from Indianapolis, IN

i have had this guitar for about 7 months. overall the guitar looks great. The main feature of this guitar is its shredability, if you dont own this guitar take all the songs you know how to play as of right now, multiply the speed at which you play those songs by 2x and thats how your music will sound through this ax. also, this guitar is super light,,very comfortable. there are however a few drawbacks, im not to impressed with the hz's i have heard that jackson is now equip this guitar with emg 81/85's right out of the factory. I am planning on taking my guitar in to get these pickups. the only other drawback i can think of is that it is very prone to dings and scratches so protect its black satin finish. this guitar is great for metal, as are all jacksons.

I own this guitar, and it's the best guitar ever.

By Unforgiven788

from Manchester, NH

I own this guitar in satin black, and it is simply the best of everything. It has a thin, sleek body design that is extremely comfortable to play, and fretboard action like no other guitar I've ever seen. Fun to play, and it sounds like everything a metal guitarist could ask for!

Best guitar I've ever owned

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just bought this guitar and I have not been able to put it down. The action is great and the guitar sounds fine through my crate fifteen watt amp. The emg-hz pickups are okay, but I'm planning to replace them with an emg 81/85 set. overall this guitar is great for the price, extremely light, fun to play, and comprable sounding to my friend's les paul custom!

Musical Masterpiece

By MetalSupremacy

from Dallas, Texas

This is by far the most well built guitar especially at the price! Soloing or rythm this guitar will do it! I swapped the HZ4s for a pair of 81s and this thing screams. Fastest neck ever with incredible sustain! Gear: Mesa Boogie Tripple Rec half stack, TriAxis, Dunlop Cyrbaby classic... yeah I like Metallica!!!

Soloist

By Anonymous

This guitar is fine if you're into metal, but I tried a faded sg special and the sg sounded way better, for a better price.

Wicked

By Mich-_Qxq0

from California

wow, this guitar blows me away every time i pick it up. The body is like incredibly sexy, the neck is slim and fast. it weighs almost nothing, the blancae is great, the gloss is gorgous along with the creme binding, the inlays make it look fast, the shape of the head looks sharp and it just altogether has a great look. Thr EMG pickups give it a deep heavy sound and 24 frets let you go screeching up the fretboard. I prefer this guitar over an gibson along with my gibson tony iomme signature sg. This guitar blows everthing else away. and plugged into a marshall...theres no way to go wrong

Outstanding Jackson!

By BAT21

from Chicago, IL

I picked this up to try out as an alternative to a Les Paul Standard. I couldnt believe the sound. I tried it through a Line6 30 watt 12 inch Celestion. Amazing! Bottom line -- for lesser expense, I got a screaming guitar with 24 frets and powerful yet quiet EMG pickups. Im used to a whammy however I wanted sustain and this has it! The frets are fat and smooth, blistering fast ebony fingerboard, excellent action, and extremely lightweight for those late night gigs. The volume knob increases the gain more than volume and yet cleans up pretty well as its turned down. It has black dot inlays on the side of the neck for positioning as well. The machine heads are smooth and accurate. Note that the black finish is high gloss and fingerprints easily, however it will reflect stage lighting well and make it stand out. Try it with a steel slide -- whoa! This is one hot machine for the money!
