Jackson

Description

The Jackson American Series Soloist SL3 electric guitar is packed with everything you need for a standout performance, designed to inspire with features geared towards high-velocity playing. Its alder body is matched with a through-body 3-piece maple neck for enhanced sustain, plus a pair of graphite reinforcement rods for ultimate stability. Topped with 24 jumbo frets and inverse mother-of-pearl sharkfin inlays, the American Series Soloist SL3’s 12"–16" compound radius rolled ebony fingerboard is designed for technical and lightning-fast playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out up the neck for increasingly quick playing and bends without fretting out. Luminlay glow-in the-dark side dots provide exceptional fingerboard guidance on even the darkest stages, while a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel allows for quick neck relief tweaks on the fly.

The American Series Soloist SL3 features an HSS pickup configuration of versatile Seymour Duncan pickups for peak tonal range and customization. The Seymour Duncan JB TB-4 bridge pickup roars with hot-rodded attitude and a powerful low end, while the Seymour Duncan SSL-6 middle and neck position radiate with glassy treble tone and scooped mids that perform well across a multitude of genres. Harness the sonic horsepower with a versatile five-way pickup switch and single Volume and Tone controls. Additional appointments include a Floyd Rose 1500 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system for reliable tuning stability, Gotoh MG-T locking tuners and Dunlop dual-locking strap buttons.

The American Series Soloist SL3 comes with a Jackson foam core case.
