Overview

New Jackson X Series guitars are loaded with purebred Jackson DNA-hot humbucking pickups, bound compound-radius fingerboard with the distinctive shark-fin inlays, and stunning finishes. Classic Jackson models imbued with the X factor, with fantastic tone, ultra-fast playability and unbelievable value for 21st century guitarists.

The Jackson Soloist SLX has a basswood body, through-body maple neck and Duncan Designed alnico HB102N (neck) and high-output ceramic HB102B (bridge) humbucking pickups. Its bound compound-radius rosewood 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. Other features include a Floyd Rose Special double-locking two-point tremolo, 24 jumbo frets and three-way pickup switching. Case sold separately.

A Great Buy for the Price...

By Roland

from San Antonio, TX.

Friends, I own 1 vintage Jackson Soloist (1984) and 3 Charvel Model 6's (1989, 1990, 1991), thus I am very aware of what this Jackson SLX guitar has to live up too. Being made in India places a negative stamp on it, but I must assure you, pound for pound this guitar delivers on a dime. The only draw backs are (1) the neck pick up used and a 3 blade pick up selector, AND (2) a Floyd Rose special tremolo system. The bridge pick up is fine, plenty of heavy chunk served up, BUT the neck pick up is useless for softer stuff. I'll be dropping in a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pick up this week, as well as a 5 way selector switch to split the coils and give it the sound of my Jackson & Charvel's. The Floyd Rose special??? What's that? We'll its not the primo but I don't think I'm gonna' mess with it as it works okay. But the guitar it's self is PRIMO. It feels great, its construction is great, its solid and is everything I've hoped it would be. This is going to remain in my collection of axes forever. If you have any hesitations about this guitar, get rid of them. A little investment in 1 new pick up and a 5 way blade selector switch is the only thing this puppy would ever need as an upgrade. Happy Jammin!

Pickups=Problem

By Robert Nicoletti

from Vancleave, MS

Well, I got this Jackson shipped to my store and It was absolutely stunning. I took it home and I tried it out. I must sat for about an hour trying to figure out the problem with the pickups. They are weak. Duncan-Designed doesen't mean Seymour-Duncan. I drive into a Fender Princeton Chorus 125w and I have got to say that the pickups were sooo weak. I have an Ibanez RG with stock G7 and G8 pickups and they screamed. I honestly don't know what the problem with Jackson Pickups are. They never cut through the mix. I have to use a pedal to get the sound that I wanted. I never used a pedal for my Ibanez(Same Amp). I had a Jackson Rhoads and the pickups were the same only I didn't have the pedal at the time, It did the same thing. And by the way, the pedal was a Boss MT-2 Metal Zone. It works great, but I like the Amp sound too, just not with these pickups. I'm going to get some Seymour Duncan's and see if I can't fix the problem, but I needed to tell you guys before you bought the product and became dissapointed. And by the way, you will have no issues with the Floyd. It is amazing. When I dive and squeal, I can come back in and do a clean song with chords and have no tuning issues. I don't have to retune when I dive either. So, be ready to have some issues when you buy the guitar, unless you have one of those Line 6 Spider 4 amps, or a Peavey Vyper, because they're mainly for Metal, I play all kinds. Later.

Go green

By michael garrido

from Tacoma,Wa

I'll keep this short since I agree whole heartedly with the previous reviewer. I'll just add that I have several MIJ Jacksons. The workmanship on the made in India ones is on a par with the Japanese. I got the Kawasabi green which pairs up with my surf green strat. My example had a very small chip in the paint on the lower bout and some scuffs on the end of the headstock. I took a look under the cover plates and the wiring is neatly routed and bundled. Solder joints are clean and solid. Equal to newer MIJ ones.I have a probably 2005ish MIJ DK2 were the cavity looked like a rats nest. The tremolo springs on my example had a lot of tension on them. So it took some fiddling when I put new strings on. These guitars are not just good for the money- there good guitars. I just wish they had a few more finish options.
