The Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL2P MAH Electric Guitar takes the already impressive model that is beloved by so many, and makes it even better. Combining high-speed playability with a sophisticated modern style, the Soloist SL2P is a delightful model that would make a worthy addition to any guitarist's collection, and is perfect as your go-to gigging partner.
Superb Soloist body
The Soloist body was conceived to create a streamlined design that removed unnecessary impediments to instil a lightning fast feel that could withstand the rigours of the road. The shallow depth partners beautifully with elegantly executed curves to establish a figure-hugging feel in the hands. Whether you like to wear it high and tight, or sling it low and loose, the Soloist SL2P plays effortlessly.
The body is crafted using highly resonant mahogany, which lays a boisterous mid-range tonal foundation infused with a generous warmth. Paired with this is a cool poplar burl top, with the natural woodgrain shining through the paintwork to stunning effect.
The Pro Series Soloist SL2P MAH benefits from a single-piece through-body construction, which is where the high-speed playability comes into its own. Paired with the deep double-cutaway of the body and treated to an oil finish, your fretting hand knows no bounds when it comes to letting loose. Incorporating graphite rod reinforcement, you can rest assured that no matter where your lengthy tour takes you, changes in humidity and temperature will not twist or warp your beloved guitar.
Married to the neck is a gorgeous ebony fingerboard, which is shaped to Jackson's compound radius design. With a rounder 12-inch radius at the nut, which extends to a flatter 16-inch radius at the neck joint, lower register chord shifting can seamlessly give way to upper-register sweeps at the drop of a hat. Alumiloid Piranha inlays guide your way along the 24-frets in discreet style.
Carefully appointed Seymour Duncan humbuckers
Selected specifically to complement the construction and tonewood selection perfectly, the SL2P MAH is equipped with a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups - TB-6 in the bridge/SH-6N in the neck. The exquisite balance of tonal flexibility, pristine cleans and bruising distortion is truly marvellous. The three-position pickup selector switch allows you to toggle between either pickup individually or both simultaneously, whilst the master volume and tone controls allow precise attenuation over the pickups remarkable dynamic range.
Floyd Rose mastery
The body is equipped with a Floyd Rose FRT-O5000 double-locking tremolo, which affords precise vibrato control with anything from slight adjustment to deep dives and soaring wailing. At the top of the neck is the Floyd Rose FRT-O5000 locking nut, which ensures that once you've tuned up using the Jackson sealed die-cast tuning machines you can work out the bridge to your heart's content. As ever, the Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock proudly bears the instantly recognisable Jackson logo.
