When a 6-string guitar is just not enough anymore, it might be time to explore your options with a 7-string model. For fans of metal and heavy rock, a 7-string guitar opens up an even wider tonal universe, and this is the case with the Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL7 HT 7 String guitar. Built with premium quality appointments and tonewoods, this radiates class from Jackson.
As with many of the Soloist guitars, the SL7 HT has a shallow body with a deep double cutaway. The body's cutaways give you full access to all of the frets, particularly the higher registers. The body itself has been made using mahogany, known for its tonal warmth, and is joined by an ash body top for a beautiful tonewood combination.
The Pro Series Soloist SL7 HT has a neck-through-body construction which works to enhance sustain. The one-piece maple neck has a smooth feel and promotes even faster playing styles. Graphite reinforcement adds stability to the neck for a dependable feel.
Topping the neck is a compound radius ebony fingerboard which hosts 24 jumbo frets to enjoy. The fingerboard radius goes from 12 to 16 inches, thus it gradually flattens toward the heel yet has a more rounded feel by the string nut. Whether you're performing acute string bends or coherent riffs, or carrying out chords lower down the frets, the neck's unique profile is designed to suit every playing style. The frets feature decorative piranha tooth inlays as a guide.
The SL7 HT model is fitted with a pair of powerful SH-6 7 pickups, adding a punchy energy to your output. These humbucking pickups are situated in the neck and bridge positions and add a really unique voice to this Jackson guitar. Furthermore, these project with both clarity and volume for stage-ready tone.
Master Volume and Tone controls plus a 3-way blade pickup switch are fitted to the body to enable easy sound tweaks to suit your playing needs.

The SL7 HT is fitted with a HT7 7 String hardtail bridge with a strings-through-body construction, working with the guitar's tonewoods to improve sustain. The headstock features the reverse 7-in-line die-cast locking tuners which uphold tuning integrity with precision.
The Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL7 HT has a variety of excellent appointments to appeal to the modern metal guitarist, offering a versatile instrument with plenty of character.
