The X factor = fantastic tone, ultra-fast playability and unbelievable value.

New Jackson X Series guitars are loaded with purebred Jackson DNA-hot humbucking pickups, bound compound-radius fingerboard with the distinctive shark-fin inlays, and stunning finishes. Classic Jackson models imbued with the X factor, with fantastic tone, ultra-fast playability and unbelievable value for 21st century guitarists.

The Jackson Soloist SLX has a basswood body, through-body maple neck and Duncan Designed alnico HB102N (neck) and high-output ceramic HB102B (bridge) humbucking pickups. Its bound compound-radius rosewood 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. Other features include a Floyd Rose Special double-locking two-point tremolo, 24 jumbo frets and three-way pickup switching. Case sold separately.

  • Pickups=Problem

    As reviewed by Robert Nicoletti on 12/29/2012

    Well, I got this Jackson shipped to my store and It was absolutely stunning. I took it home and I tried it out. I must sat for about an hour trying to figure out the problem with the pickups. They are weak. Duncan-Designed doesen't mean Seymour-Duncan. I drive into a Fender Princeton Chorus 125w and I have got to say that the pickups were sooo weak. I have an Ibanez RG with stock G7 and G8 pickups and they screamed. I honestly don't know what the problem with Jackson Pickups are. They never cut through the mix. I have to use a pedal to get the sound that I wanted. I never used a pedal for my Ibanez(Same Amp). I had a Jackson Rhoads and the pickups were the same only I didn't have the pedal at the time, It did the same thing. And by the way, the pedal was a Boss MT-2 Metal Zone. It works great, but I like the Amp sound too, just not with these pickups. I'm going to get some Seymour Duncan's and see if I can't fix the problem, but I needed to tell you guys before you bought the product and became dissapointed. And by the way, you will have no issues with the Floyd. It is amazing. When I dive and squeal, I can come back in and do a clean song with chords and have no tuning issues. I don't have to retune when I dive either. So, be ready to have some issues when you buy the guitar, unless you have one of those Line 6 Spider 4 amps, or a Peavey Vyper, because they're mainly for Metal, I play all kinds. Later.

  • Still the best

    As reviewed by AARON KOSTELECKY on 5/18/2012

    Jackson were always the reason I regarded Ibanez as mere knockoff's. But for some reason GC doesn't stock very many, if any, Jacksons in store. Having owned an aging Japan Soloist, I was really excited when I heard they were releasing a new line of soloists. I ordered mine sight unseen, before gc even got their first shipment, before there were even images available on this site. That just shows my level of faith in this brand. Admittedly, the first one I received had some issues, so I returned it. The second one was perfect. These are made in India, so they're not Japan or even US made. But the second one I received was just right in every way. It met all expectations; as an owner of one the previous generation soloists, it did not disappoint. It's the same thing. These guitars are not going to limit you to one style. The neck thru construction means you will have limitless sustain and the way they resonate is full bodied yet articulate. These are not some thin, crappy sounding cheap toy (read:Ibanez). I replaced the bridge pickup as I always do and it is friggin amazing. The BEST guitar out there for this price. The best neck I've ever played. This guitar renders all my others obsolete, nothing comes close. I'm surprised how few people know about these guitars. Hopefully someday I can afford a USA model. Until then, it's still possible to have a quality neck thru for a good price. Jackson is still the best.

  • A Great Buy for the Price...

    As reviewed by Roland on 6/24/2014

    Friends, I own 1 vintage Jackson Soloist (1984) and 3 Charvel Model 6's (1989, 1990, 1991), thus I am very aware of what this Jackson SLX guitar has to live up too. Being made in India places a negative stamp on it, but I must assure you, pound for pound this guitar delivers on a dime. The only draw backs are (1) the neck pick up used and a 3 blade pick up selector, AND (2) a Floyd Rose special tremolo system. The bridge pick up is fine, plenty of heavy chunk served up, BUT the neck pick up is useless for softer stuff. I'll be dropping in a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pick up this week, as well as a 5 way selector switch to split the coils and give it the sound of my Jackson & Charvel's. The Floyd Rose special??? What's that? We'll its not the primo but I don't think I'm gonna' mess with it as it works okay. But the guitar it's self is PRIMO. It feels great, its construction is great, its solid and is everything I've hoped it would be. This is going to remain in my collection of axes forever. If you have any hesitations about this guitar, get rid of them. A little investment in 1 new pick up and a 5 way blade selector switch is the only thing this puppy would ever need as an upgrade. Happy Jammin!
