OVERVIEW

Neck-through-body construction, quilt maple top, EMG pickups and hardtail bridge.

Jackson's name is synonymous with the utmost in high-performance guitar design—Jackson, the progenitor of all musical speed machines. Conceived as a launching platform for technically advanced guitar playing, the SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist is rife with Jackson’s bloodline—sophisticated ergonomic design, ultra-fast playability and, of course, monstrous tone.  

Dual graphite reinforcement rods run the length of the three-piece maple neck with speed profile to fortify it against the extremes of nature, buttressing it against warping while a speedy 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard creates the ideal playing surface for fat riffs and easy chording near the black plastic nut while gradually flattening in the upper registers for lightning-quick solos and wide bends without fear of fretting out.

A pair of EMG active humbucking pickups—an 85 neck pickup and 81 bridge pickup—generate versatile, huge and high output tones for brutal distortion and clear, crisp cleans. The TonePros TP6 adjustable strings-thru-body bridge produces massive sustain, and when combined with the Jackson-branded tuning machines, rock-solid tuning stability along with precise intonation.

Classic Jackson appointments include the instantly recognizable piranha inlays, stable Dunlop dual-locking strap buttons, black hardware, single-ply neck binding and the Soloist’s ergonomically arched top for playing blazing licks with comfort. Sleek, refined, and dangerous, the SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist is art brought to life, tempered with high-tech performance for the ultimate metal machine. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Jackson SLATTXMG 3-6 Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

    Jackson has fulfilled so many dreams of aspiring guitarists, and this latest edition of the soloist doesn't disappoint! I have been playing Metal/Hard Rock for over 26 years, on stages, in studios, wherever, and this guitar has some really awesome top notch features for an affordable price. I especially love the purple quilt paint job, it looks even better in person than the pictures on websites. Buy this, you will not be ashamed when the lights come on and your band rocks out!

      Comments about Jackson SLATTXMG 3-6 Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      I went out on a limb an got this for my bday an xmas present, I was due for an update.. I was surprised how light it was compared to my schecter. When I first picked it up it felt like some kind of cheap toy. It's tight, addictive to play, feels good in my hands and sexy. I got the purple wish I got it sooner it brought my playing to a new level.
