One 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 SLATXMG3-7 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 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.
Equipped with a Floyd Rose® Special bridge and Jackson-branded tuning machines. Classic Jackson appointments include the instantly recognizable piranha inlays, black hardware, single-ply neck binding and the Soloist’s ergonomically arched top for playing blazing licks with comfort. Sleek, refined, and dangerous, the SLATXMG3-7 Soloist is art brought to life, tempered with high-tech performance for the ultimate metal machine.
