Heavy metal music and soloing go hand in hand, and as a respected name amongst shredders worldwide, Jackson knows what makes a guitar perfect for performing leads. In fact, the Jackson Soloist has been a favorite amongst head bangers since the early 1980s thanks to their smooth necks for playing fast scales, searing sustain and first-class electronics. Today, these so-called "Super-Strats" continue to blow the minds of a new generation of extreme guitarists, and in this selection you'll find a wide range of Soloist models - from 7-string extended Soloist guitars to even Signature Artist axes.
While the Soloist has a smaller body design that's similar to the Jackson Dinky, it also has a 25.5" scale length that's typically found on Fender guitars. This is one of the many reasons why the Soloist is so great for playing leads. Not to mention, it also has a neck-through-body design for increased resonance, and more often than not they're equipped with a Floyd Rose or Kahler whammy system for ear-piercing, high-output power. Go ahead and take a look at the Pro Soloist SL2 Electric Guitar. Boasting Seymour Duncan pickups, the aforementioned Floyd Rose tremolo, through-body maple neck and 24 jumbo frets, the SL2 is an excellent representation of what the Soloist series is all about.
Or, if it's an extended range axe that you're after, check out the SLTTXMG3-7 Soloist 7-string electric guitar. Loaded with EMG pickups, a tune-o-matic bridge, arched basswood body and topped with a striking Silverburst finish, this shred-machine is built like a tank and will have you blasting through scales faster than you ever thought possible.
And when you get right down to it, that's what the Jackson Soloist series is all about: ripping through one solo after another, quickly and comfortably. Whether you're style is prog, black, thrash or death, a Jackson Soloist guitar will fit your metal sub-genre to a tee. The only thing left to do now is check out the rest of your options in this catalog - you'll know the right Soloist guitar for you when you see it.
