The Jackson SL3 Soloist electric guitar features an alder body with a flame maple top on transparent finishes. Its maple neck through body combined with its compound radius rosewood fingerboard provides amazing sustain, and quick playability. It is powered by a Seymour Duncan JB humbucker in the bridge position, and a Hot Rails in the middle and neck position. It also features a Floyd Rose tremolo and black hardware.

Jackson's compound-radius 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. With a more relaxed hand, you'll play better!

For the Cash... Nice!

By M.B.D.

from Payson Arizona

I have the natural finish. The "flaming" is nice - you want superb - get an SL1. The shark-fin inlays are nicely set but made of the cheaper plastic - Still This thing looks hot from 5 feet away and if your fans are any closer than that, call security. Sounds REALLY Nice. A thru maple neck classically lends guitars a brighter sound so cranked this guitar is really nice for metal.The TB-4 has that howling open wah PAF sound - slightly less defined than a PAF Pro but Much hotter. Clean this guitar sparkles. The hot-rails put forth no mud but lots of power, clarity and definition. Sustain is nice - not great - past the twelfth fret sustain drops off a bit more.Neck feel is fast, thin, flat n' wide with easy upper fret access.A Superb Shredder Cranked This thing Growls - roll back the volume and treble and you have a really nice touch-feel-blues sound.The Jackson SL1 Is better on many levels but the the SL3 is still An Excellent guitar for the cash - an all round winner.

Cool case. Amazing humbucker and single coils. Sounds and plays like a guitar worth millions. Wonderful for live and recording. You MUST get it. Versatility machine too.

Jackson SL3 Soloist

By Kurt

from Houston, TX

I have been playing guitar for over ten years. I've played Gibson, Fender, Ibanez, Gretch and PRS guitars during that time but I have to say that this guitar is the one that I just can't stop playing! Although my PRS is an excellent guitar, this guitar has a warmer tone and stays in tune more than any other I've owned. I play with high gain settings with delay and this guitar has the tone I've been chasing. The neck through construction also gives you unbelievable sustain! The neck and fret board feel fantastic and play a big part in the overall playability of this guitar. The Floyd Rose is extremely responsive and I was amazed how well this guitar stays in tune...finally! I used to think that Jackson was a lower end guitar but I was wrong. I would highly recommend this guitar.
