From solid riffs to intense solos, the Jackson Soloist SLXDX solidbody electric guitar is the affordable axe you want in your arsenal. The first thing youâ€™ll notice when you pick up your Soloist SLXDX is how comfortable it feels. The body is lightweight poplar contoured with classic curves, and the neck is topped with a compound-radius fretboard, a favorite design among rockers here at Leaseville because it lets you fret chords and solo with ease. Top it off with Duncan Designed humbuckers, and you have an axe that looks, plays, and sounds like it belongs onstage.
One of Jacksonâ€™s mottoes is â€œChoose wisely. Play better.â€ Thatâ€™s not just hype either. The fact is, a well-made guitar, like a Soloist SLXDX, gives you a closer connection to your music. For instance, the Soloist SLXDX features a compound-radius fretboard, which is more rounded at the nut and flatter higher up the neck. This makes it easy to fret chords near the nut while opening up the fretboard for soloing. The flatter higher frets also let you keep your action low, without bottoming out when you bend notes. And thanks to its neck-through-body design, the Soloist SLXDX also gives you epic sustain.
Great feel is only part of the equation. Jackson knows this better than just about any guitar maker. Thatâ€™s why theyâ€™ve equipped the Soloist SLXDX with a set of extra-hot Duncan Designed humbucking pickups. An HB-103N pickup at the neck and an HB-102B at the bridge give you well-balanced tone with tight bass, glassy mids, and crunchy highs.
