Comments about Jackson SLATXMGQ3-7 Soloist 7-String Electric Guitar:

This thing is a beauty. It has been a week since I first got my transparent red Jackson and have played it non-stop. I nervously opened the, just arrived, box, concerned in many ways. "AM I CRAZY?! GETTING A GUITAR WITHOUT EVEN TRYING IT FIRST?! OH MY, EMGS?! IS IT BASSWOOD?! I HATE BASSWOOD!! THE JACKSON PAGE SAYS MAHOGANY, WHICH ONE IS IT?! THE LOOK CAN CHANGE SO MUCH FROM GUITAR TO GUITAR BECAUSE OF THE TOP!! THIS IS GOING TO BE A DISASTER.." The moment I pulled it out of the box everything went quiet. An outstanding looking guitar, with the always great Jackson craftsmanship, and the obvious Mahogany weight (big relief). I had it in my hands for long minutes while carefully inspecting it, and the more I looked the more beautiful it became. The finish work is outstanding (except for one, barely noticeable, ding), the neck felt incredibly comfortable, even with a higher scale length. Very comfortably located and nice potentiometers, although the volume knob was a bit loose, and the nice addition of the strap locking system. Every note rang out perfectly, and the frets looked very even finished. Absolutely gorgeous looking guitar. And now, the sound. As I plugged in the guitar into my Axe Fx II, I stared into those 707s with the hope that they would not sound as EMGie as others do. I started of easy, dialed a nice, djety kind of tone, and gave it a try. Every note was outstanding, defined and made me just want to keep riffing away, but I knew worst was eventually going to come and I would have to try it on a clean setting. First, I measured dynamics. Lowered the volume on the guitar and it cleaned out to a nice fusiony kind of tone, played with the tone a bit and got very different responses from the pickups, all very nice. Well, here we are, the dreaded moment, the dial reads "Sultans", praying for a nice Mark Knopfler tone, I was impressed. Very nice round tone from the neck pickup and an edgy 80's clean sound from the bridge. However, it tends to saturate just a tiny bit. The bottom line stands in an incredible guitar, I cannot stress enough how beautiful and comfortable to play this guitar is, with an affordable price, great seven string, nor the Schecter Loomis, nor the Music Man JP have anything on this guitar (maybe the passive pickups and piezo on the later), with only a few minor drawbacks out of the box, those being the aforementioned, and a strangely reclusive whammy bar who refuses to stay where I say, but, without a doubt, outweighed by the countless positive aspects. If something would happen to it, I would without a doubt, put this guitar as my first seven string choice again. I know this was long, but I could not find any other reviews out there and hoped to lead the doubtful buyer.
