X Series Soloist™ Arch Top SLAT8 MS, Laurel Fingerboard, Multi-Scale, Gloss Black

New

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 poplar body paired with a through-body one-piece maple neck with scarf joint and two graphite rods for maximum neck stability. Designed for speedy playability, the 12”-16” compound radius bound laurel fingerboard features 24 jumbo frets.

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.

The SLAT8 MS takes a sinister turn in a Gloss Black finish with black hardware and a Jackson 4x4 AT-1 headstock with Jackson die-cast tuners.
