If You Loved the ‘80s, You’ll Love These 7 New Wild Finishes
May 21, 2020
Throwing it back for those who love all-things from the ’80s, Jackson has seven wild and gnarly finishes across the Pro Series and X Series models that will have you feeling nostalgic — from screaming neon colors to crackle and sick swirl paint jobs.
The Pro Series Soloist SL3M puts a technicolor spin on one of Jackson’s revered body shapes. The basswood body, back of the neck and pointed headstock are all adorned in a vibrant rainbow crackle finish.
A Seymour Duncan® Distortion TB-6 bridge pickup rips with a powerful low end for balanced rock or metal, while the Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat® SSL-6 RWRP Single-Coil middle and Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 Single-Coil neck pickups sink their teeth into solos with a glassy, powerful bite.
We can’t promise you a pot of gold, but great things are sure in store for your high-performance playing with this innovative axe.
The Pro Series Soloist SL2 joins the ranks of Jackson’s killer crackle offerings with a new molten Red Mercury finish on the body, headstock and back of the neck.
A powerful TB-6 trembucker bridge pup gives this axe its fiery voice and handles aggressive styles of playing with ease, whether you’re fronting a hardcore punk outfit or tearing up rhythm runs in a thrash band. The Distortion SH-6 neck pup yields a ton of crunch while maintaining supreme clarity.
Strap this sucker on and sizzle!
You’ll think you’ve been zapped into a round of Galaxian with the neon Green Glow sandblasted ash finish on this Pro Series Dinky DK2 Ash. This modern metal marvel is outfitted with a direct mount Seymour Duncan® JB™ TB-4 bridge pickup and ‘59™ SH-1N neck pickup that are topped with neon green pickup bobbins and sear with radiant harmonics and sweet sustain.
Go ahead, get your glow on.
These new axes are routed with an HSS pickup configuration consisting of a Jackson high-output humbucker in the bridge and Jackson single-coil middle and neck pickups.
Let the face-melting begin!
Throttling Jackson style and sound but with a trippy twist. The all-new X Series Soloist SLX DX Swirl sports a writhed finish in either a Satin Red Swirl or Satin White Swirl over its body, back of the neck and headstock.
This axe is outfitted with dual Jackson high-output humbucking bridge and neck pickups for insanely versatile full-bodied voice for scotching leads and crunchy, aggressive rhythms runs.
This spacey riff machine offers boundless tonal potential.
