Improved playing comfort, tension and intonation.
Shred in ergonomic comfort and style with the Jackson X Series Soloist Archtop SLAT8 MS. A high-performance evolution of the electric guitar, this 8-string multi-scale model unlocks the possibilities of an instrument by accommodating two scale lengths on one fingerboard, thus improving overall playing comfort, tension and intonation.
The SLAT8 MS features an arched top basswood body with a one-piece maple neck and scarf joint reinforced with two graphite rods for maximum neck stability, 12-16" compound radius laurel fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets, single-ply bound neck and Jackson 4x4 AT1 headstock with Jackson die-cast tuners.
Chosen specifically for their complementary sound, a pair of modern EMG 909 humbucking pickups drives this guitar's versatile sound, combining for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for pristine cleans and snarling distortion. Single volume and tone controls shape the pickups' output, which can be further refined with the three-way toggle switch for the precise voice required to bring your musical vision to life.
To help improve intonation, the guitar has been equipped with Jackson designed individual bridge saddles, staggered to accommodate for the two scale lengths. Case sold separately.
