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!

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

    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!

    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.

    Jackson Guitar

    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

    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!

    This Soloist gives PRS a run for its money!!

    By Soloist

    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!

    Jackson SLSMG

    By Pat, Sgt Sparkles, Brooks

    from Kalispell, MT

    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.

    Not terribley impressed

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    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.

    Fantastic Guitar

    By mistaKRIStapor

    from Anaheim, CA

    When I was in need of a new guitar my friend told me I should try out some jackson models. I went to a local shop and tried this model and I just completley fell in love with it. If you're into speed this guitar probably has one of the fastest necks ever. What amazes me about this guitar is that you can use it to produce all diferent kinds of styles, like blues, rock, metal, etc...(the EMG's are great) Anyway this guitar is amazing and it has a great price for how good it is. Hope you'll have fun if you get it.

    one of the best guitars on the market, and the best under a grand.right next to the parker fly deluxe this is the fastest neck ive ever played on, lp's, sg's,strats, tele's,ibanez's, schecter's, they cant match this neck.all mahogany body and neck with ebony fretboardand its gorgous, beautiful satin black finish with black hardware. its all on piece the body neck and headits one the lightest guitars out therethe only bad thing about this guitar is the pickups ther good just not as good as the rest of the guitar isthey should have stuck a set of 81's or 81 & 85 seti put a gibson burstbucker pickup in the neck position and sounds great and gives my guitar a custom look i want to put a 81 in bridgei couldnt ask for a better guitar

    METAL!!!

    By Jesus Christ-f0cxS

    from CA

    This is an amazing guitar. IT has all you need for some heavy metal and soloing. I like to use whammy bar some though so i think a dinky would be better for that but nothing comes close to the value and shred ability of this guitar.

    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.

    great guitar...too expensive

    By Rock_4EVER

    from IOWA

    I played this guitar last year because I have been a Jackson fan for the last 5 years. i was looking for a crisp, punctuating clean like that of a PRS with the pedal to the floor crunch of the schecter diamond series. This is the guitar that did it for me. I picked it up and fell in love with it... until I saw the price. i just couldn't see spending the money for this when I could have another PRS for another grand!!! Overall though this guitar is worth the money and it is one of the fastest guitars that I have ever encountered.

    This guitar is a heavy metal piece of art. I've had mine for about 3 months now and it's just a crunch machine, and with the jumbo frets it's so easy to play. you won't regret buying this guitar!!!

    Worth it

    By MetalMaster1412

    from Waterford,CA

    A couple months back before christmas, I went to guitar center and was looking for a guitar. I looked at ones that were the same except they weren't neck throughs. When I played this guitar, I was amazed! It was light has a feather and it had a fast neck. The only thing I would change on it would be the humbuckers. HZs are great, this guitar deserves a 81/85 set. I don't know why jackson didn't put them on in the first place. If You have the money to through around, I'd put it on this monster.

    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.
