Overview

The Jackson name has always been synonymous with state-of-the-art guitar technology and playing, leading the way in crafting instruments that exceed the demands of modern players. Pushing the envelope further than its ever been pushed, the Soloist SL3X is a brave new entry into the world of high-tech guitars. Lead the charge with this streamlined machine designed to unleash your musical beast.

Leap headfirst into the fray with a select power trio of Duncan Designed pickups; two high-output HR-101 Hot Rails single-coil pickups in the middle and neck positions are matched to a powerful HB-103B humbucking bridge pickup for complementary harmonic response and highly dynamic responsiveness. Master volume and tone controls, along with a five-way blade switch control the formidable pickups output, making their power yours to command.

A stylishly contoured body and pure Jackson neck-through-body construction ensures ergonomic comfort during long sets along with monstrous sustain and smooth playing all the way up to the 24th jumbo fret. Graphite reinforcement rods run through the one-piece neck, protecting it against environmental depredations while the ultra-fast 12-16 compound radius rosewood fingerboard is built from the get-go for easy chording and riffing near the nut and rapid, fret-out-free leads as you move up the neck. The recessed Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo is fluidly easy to use, working in tandem with the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut to ensure your axe precisely returns to its original tuning after every dive-bomb.

The Soloist SL3X bears Jacksons traditional appointments black hardware, knurled dome control knobs, durable finish that easily shakes off sweat and other grime, pearloid sharkfin fingerboard inlays and the famous Jackson Pointed 6-In-Line headstock. Engineered for the 21st century musician, the Soloist SL3X melds classic style with modern materials and construction for this precision music machine.

    Comments about Jackson X Series Soloist SL3X Electric Guitar:

    I've only had his guys for a week and change so my opinion of it might be a little more critical than others. I'll start off with the finish first. The neon pink is incredible and the finish was perfectly smooth as I expected without any blemishes or scratches. The binding is a nice touch as well especially as it goes all the way around the headstock. The tremolo works well and locks as it should but the springs are a little noisy for my liking. I was planning on upgrading to the 1984 Original Floyd anyways so I'm not too concerned. The neck is properly nice and a wonderful one to play for the shredder and for the less extravagant players out there too. It's a combination of a strat with a thinner ibanez if that makes sense. The cons for me have to be with the electronics. I was a bit underwhelmed with the tone coming out of it and realized that it had more to do with the pickups than with anything else. It's not a high output pickup and it's probably wise to upgrade them depending on your musical style. Being that this one is for playing 80s hard rock and metal I'll be needing a little more output and will probably upgrade the electronics as well. For most players buying this guitar at this price point it's a nice one to get, especially if you've left a budget for upgrades as well.

    Comments about Jackson X Series Soloist SL3X Electric Guitar:

    Purchased as a gift, for an experienced guitarist who uses it primarily for metal style music (not in a band, but recording and experimenting at home). He says it's lots of fun to play, feels excellent, and has better pickup than any other guitar he's owned so far. The only drawbacks are an input plug that is slightly loose, and the pickup/bridge settings needed to be customized.

    Comments about Jackson X Series Soloist SL3X Electric Guitar:

    Opened the box to see the beautiful satin finish and black hardware on this Jackson. I've never purchased a guitar of this caliber and was surprised it did not come with the tremolo bar and the key to the tune locks. After playing it for about 30 minutes to an hour, I came to the conclusion that I love it, but I had a couple issues that I will need to get tuned up. For one, the input is not solid and the cable has some movement to it. The washer and nut look like they're tightened to the base, but the cable moves and makes me very uncomfortable - One unfortunate snag of the cable, and I feel it's coming off.The second thing that needs help is the high E string has some buzz around the 12th -14th frets. I guess I can adjust the bridge or other things - I'll have to look it up or take it to the GC location for a look. Those issues aside, I love the feel of the neck and sound of the pickups - although the mid single pickup is right in the middle of my picking and may get some major scuffing after a while.
