Jackson's 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 SLATTXMGQ3-6 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 three-piece 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. The TonePros TP6 adjustable strings-thru-body bridge produces massive sustain, and when combined with the Jackson-branded tuning machines, rock-solid tuning stability along with precise intonation.
Classic Jackson appointments include the instantly recognizable piranha inlays, stable Dunlop dual-locking strap buttons, black hardware, single-ply neck binding and the Soloist’s ergonomically arched top for playing blazing licks with comfort. Sleek, refined, and dangerous, the SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist is art brought to life, tempered with high-tech performance for the ultimate metal machine. Case sold separately.

Comments about Jackson SLATTXMG 3-6 Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:
I got the Transparent Red Burst and it is just gorgeous. The first thing that I noticed when I first held it was how great the neck felt. It's thin and the compound radius is perfect for me. It's very easy to play chords, leads and shred if you want to. The build is solid and what you would expect from Jackson. It's light and very comfortable to play. I've been playing over 30 years and have several brands of guitars. This is the one I'm always reaching for. It's just a pleasure to play. The only con for me is the pickups . I'm not a fan of EMG's. I'll be replacing them with Seymour Duncan Blackouts. Just a personal preference. I use it for metal and classical but it could be used for anything. Overall it's an excellent guitar. I would highly recommend it to anybody.
