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!

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!
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!
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!!!
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.
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.
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
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!
This guitar is the best investment a guitarist could make. I looked at PRS & Gibson before buying a Flametop SLSMG. I found a better guitar at half the price. Great tone, ultra light, beautiful finish, awesome pickups. Highly recommended to anyone!
A very very playable guitar. I loved every minute of it. The neck was very fast, and played like it was reading my thought. The emg pickups were great, way above most passive pickups on the market. The only downside i could notice was that my hand kept bumping the volume knob and turning it down. Other than that, the guitar was exactly what i have come to expect from jackson.
The SLSMG overall is defanitly not the best. Its overpriced and a rather flimsy guitar. I bought it about a year and a half ago. First I was thrilled with it. Then I noticed the EMG-HZ pickups completley blow. I wasnt happy I payed over $900 and got bottom end pickups. I upgraded to EMG 81/85 set and the sound got better. But I gig this guitar ALOT and the straplocks always strip out, the original wiring always crackles and goes out, and its dinged up quite easily. It plays well and is very light. But paying $900 then having to put $200 pickups in to acheive an ok sound...Im not impressed. Just go with a gibson.
