Distinctive and affordable, the Jackson X Series Soloist SLX Spalted Maple is built for speed and loaded with purebred Jackson DNA. It features a basswood body with a beautiful spalted maple veneer top. The thru-body maple neck has graphite reinforcement and a tilt-back scarf joint headstock for greater playing comfort. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and pearloid shark fin inlays, the 12"-16" fully bound compound radius laurel fretboard 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.

Duncan-designed alnico HB-103N neck and high-output ceramic HB-103B bridge humbuckers power this metal beast with crunchy, full-bodied tones. It's ideal for brazen lead work or punchy rhythms runs. The tone is fully customizable with 3-way blade switching and single volume and tone controls. A Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo bridge system provides superior string stability, improved sustain and dynamic tremolo action.

A sophisticated and stunningly elegant guitar, the SLX Spalted Maple is available in Tobacco Burst with black hardware and pointed black headstock
