The Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL2P HT MAH Electric Guitar in Carmel Burl offers a hard tail model for those who prefer a fixed bridge over a floating trem. Built with the indefatigable dedication we've come to expect from the team at Jackson, the Pro Series Soloist SL2P is perfect for taking to the stage with, and will make an excellent go-to gigging partner.
Superb Soloist body
The deep double-cutaway body shape of the Soloist is a joy to perform with, thanks to the shallow body depth and figure-hugging curves. Whether you've played one before or are new to the body, the instant feeling of familiarity is what keeps you coming back for more. Wear it high or sling it low, you never feel like you're having to work thanks to the gloriously accommodating design, it always flows sweetly in accordance with your movements.
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.
To firmly establish its high-speed credentials, the Pro Series Soloist is built using a single-piece, through-body neck construction. The result is enduring sustain that gives notes an enviable lifespan, and a sleek feel in the hand thanks to the generously oiled finish. The rigidity of the neck is reinforced using graphite rods, which increases longevity and resilience when handling changes in humidity and temperature (a frequent occurrence for any touring instrument).
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.
Fitted to the body is Jackson's HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge, which anchors each string securely to provide endless sustain. The steadfast consistency of the bridge reinforces a confidence in the SL2P's ability to withstand the punishment that comes with gigging. The classic 6-in-line headstock is home to Jackson's die-cast locking tuning machines, which keep uphold tuning integrity with precision.
