OVERVIEW

New Jackson X Series guitars are loaded with purebred Jackson DNA-hot humbucking pickups, bound compound-radius fingerboard with the distinctive shark-fin inlays, and stunning finishes.

      Comments about Jackson SLX Soloist X Series Electric Guitar:

      Condition two blemish was damage on the fretboard. Hasn't affected playing so I can't complain. But the factory shipped the wrong guitar the first time. I feel like that's a little ridiculous, especially seeing as how they called me two days after I ordered it to confirm my shipping address. You couldn't confirm the actual guitar?

        Comments about Jackson SLX Soloist X Series Electric Guitar:

        I bought this axe in 2014 and it was my first neck-through guitar. After playing novice jackson guitars for 7 years this was a big upgrade for me. The first issue i had outta the box was setting the floyd rose but it was a quick and easy fix after watching some online tutorials. The first thing I noticed was the amount of sustaine this axe was giving. Every note was ringing for days compared to my old string through jackson JS series. I own a line 6 flextone III amp and it sounds like it's stage ready. The Duncan Design stock pickups are decent hence why I only gave it a 4 star rating but I prefer a little extra output on my gear so I upgraded the neck to an EMG H4 passive pickup and I tell you this baby screams Bloody Murder on my non-tube amp. The Floyd Rose is perfect for getting those high pitch piggy squeals. I've yet to purchase a full tube head amp but i can only imagine the difference in sound quality this beast will produce. The neck profile in this axe is insane. It was clearly made for shred. In a nutshell this guitar is perfect for all styles of Rock and Blues. My Child's college fund well spent.

            I ordered this guitar on December 21st and got it on the 24th. A lot sooner than I expected! The guitar has a great feel to it. It screams with tone and holds tune pretty well with the Floyd Rose tremolo. This by far the best guitar I've had in a awhile. I've had Srats, Ibanez, and Epiphone guitars and this one beats them all hands down. The only thing that I can call negative on this was I wanted the white version but that was on back order till January so I got the black instead. Still looks great in the black. Excellent guitar for the price.
