The SLSMG Soloist electric guitar from Jackson features a mahogany carved-top body, mahogany neck (through body) for outstanding sustain, compound radius ebony fingerboard,hot EMG® 81 (bridge) and 85 (neck) humbucking pickups, string-through-body bridge 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!

Being a long time Jackson enthusiast I bought this guitar about three years ago and it's been my main guitar ever since. This guitar is built for players that like to play fast and hard. The quality parallels the USA soloist and it weighs a bit less. Mine came with stock EMG-HZ's and the thing screams. One of the best guitar purchases I've ever made.
I bought one of these about a year ago. Needless to say it took me a year to stop playing it to write this review. I love this guitar I will never buy another.
The other day I visited Guitar Center and saw one of these on the wall. Being a Jackson enthusiast, I decided to pick it up and test it out. First impression: "This is the lightest guitar I've ever lifted." Seriously.. I have a two-year-old cat that weighs more than this guitar. The sonics are amazing and the neck is one of the fasted I've played. I own two other Jacksons and this is my favorite by far. Oh, and by the way.. I bought it!
For the first 8 yrs i played guitar i used some piece of junk i bought at a pawn shop for $50. this held me back from learning a whole lot of new techniques. after i bought this guitar, it was like being hit by lightning! the super hot pickups and amazing fret board allow you to do anything you want with a guitar. i started off playing linkin park and now im playing lamb of god and BLS! and it's all thanks to guitar center and jackson!
I needed a guitar with sweet metal tone, amazing sustain, hot pickups, a super fast neck, and a Flloyd Rose... I thought i would have to get a $2000 Dean to get all of that... but when i picked up this guitar, it had it all... it's amazing, practically sustains for days... the neck is so fast it makes it so easy to to shred a quick song or solo... the first thing i played on it was "Cowboys from Hell", on that guitar its a peice of cake, even the solo! if your into playing speed metal or just really fast licks you'd love this guitar...
I bought this guitar a couple weeks ago and haven't put it down ever since. The neck on this thing is fast as lighting, and the pickups are very high end. Fixed bridge really keeps this thing in tune and ready to play. This is an all around good guitar to buy
This gutiar is amazing, its very light, it sounds very nice. When you drop tune it to C, it has a very heavy crunch. I used this at the local music store with a small 50 watt marshall amp. It sounded nice. The solos i should say would be astounding on this guitar. The only bad thing about this guitar is the knob below the bridge pick up. It gets in the way alot. I dont like it, i would have to say that is the only flaw to this beauty.
Yes, this is the guitar you want if you like shredding,moshing,country pickin,jazz fusioning,blues jammin or just being a lazy noodler and still wanting to sound good with ease!I own bout 3 USA Jackson guitars and a Custom Shop Jackson also,but when it is time to hit the road the SLSMG is what I rely on the most.This guitar has been knocked over,dropped,had beer spilt on it several times and anything else you can imagine but has never been damaged through it all and has always kept its great sound and surprisingly has never aquired any cosmetic damage!Get one,it is all you'll need in an affordable guitar!
