Shredder's Dream

By MARK FANNING

from Madison, Alabama

Comments about Jackson SL2 Pro Soloist Quilt Maple Electric Guitar:

This guitar surpassed all of my expectations with room to spare. Anybody worrying about the Soloist being crafted in Indonesia now instead of Japan should worry no longer. This thing is very well made. Neck is spot on, fretwork and trim superb. Practically plays itself. Top notch manufacturing. I'm absolutely impressed. I've owned and played Japanese made Jacksons for nearly 20 years. This one holds its own and I personally think its even a bit better. It just feels perfect. The tone and sustain this guitar has is fantastic. The Floyd is rock solid as expected, solidly staying in tune and I only use Seymour Duncans. I ordered the Quicksilver finish and it is so sharp and clean, it's like a well sharpened blade. You gotta see it up close. A sparkling sliver bullet in my thrash metal arsenal. The aluminoid piranha inlays match up really well with the Quicksilver too. A keeper. Guitar came perfectly set up. Action is awesome, intonation spot on, it was even nearly in perfect tune out of the box. If only it shipped with a case, but alas most guitars seem to be shipping without one these days. Oh well. I'm floored with this axe, the best Jackson I've ever owned.

Top quality, disappointed with the veneer visibility

By art ralston

Comments about Jackson SL2 Pro Soloist Quilt Maple Electric Guitar:

I just got my transparent black quilted maple SL2 Pro 2 weeks ago. I love it! The real Floyd Rose does not disappoint at all. The pickups are hot and crisp. The neck feels great, and it was set up beautifully from the factory. I don't want to bash it at all, but I do have 2 honest complaints. The first is that the trem bar was so tight-fitting into the hole that I thought there must be some sort of tension adjustment on the underside (there is not, the chrome must just have been put on too heavily. It took a good 30 seconds of pushing and turning back and forth to get it to go in. Once in place, it works perfectly. Getting it back out was just as fun, but I have worn it down enough now that it's only a little too tight. The second issue is just cosmetic, having nothing to do with function. All of the online photos of this guitar are stunning, with beautiful figure in the quilted maple. My guitar (ordered it online) has a quilted top in there somewhere, hiding under the finish. From 3 feet away, it just looks like a gloss black finish. If you get the light to catch it just right, you can see the quilting. For the extra $100, I am NOT impressed. I might have bought it in gloss black, had that been an option, so it's not horrible, but it would not have cost an extra $100. I still love it, aside from those 2 items, I would have given it an easy 5 stars. It's right up there with the American quality, at half the cost.

Great Guitar from Jackson!

By Rick Kala

from Langhorne, PA

Comments about Jackson SL2 Pro Soloist Quilt Maple Electric Guitar:

The reason I purchased this guitar was because of my past experience with Jackson products. They are a reliable producer of quality guitars. In addition, this guitars price point is more than fair IMO. Upon getting the guitar I noticed the quality craftsmanship and the feel of the neck was great. Furthermore, the Seymour Duncans compliment the Alder body perfectly. This guitar has now become my main guitar and I plan to keep it for years! Great job by Jackson. Pro's - Looks, Playability, and Price Con's - Packaging by Guitar Center was terrible, they need to better represent Jackson.

Nice looking but......

By David L.

from New Bedford MA

Comments about Jackson SL2 Pro Soloist Quilt Maple Electric Guitar:

Nice looking guitar with neck threw. My problem was the nut was higher then earlier versions (I have two other Dinkies)and when I lowered the action I encountered a lot of buzzing and muted notes. I returned this guitar and purchased an Ibanez RG3XXV 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar - lowered the action with no problems! Unfinished feel neck is great!
