The Jackson X Series Soloist SL4X Electric Guitar is a streamlined masterpiece that inherits Jackson's impeccable build quality, and is also the only model in the current line-up that has a triple single-coil pickup configuration.
Streamlined Soloist body
If you're a hard rock or metal player, then unfettered access to the body and neck is a must. The X Series SL4X is shaped to the slimline Soloist body profile, which is designed to put high-speed playability and precision at the fore. The ergonomically shaped curves combine with gently bevelled edges to establish a snug fit and feel against your body. The deep double cutaway design allows your fretting hand to reach the highest frets with the greatest of ease.
The body is built using basswood, which is a lightweight and tonally balanced wood that produces a well-rounded character. If you're looking for a versatile tonal palette with a driving energy, then the SL4X has everything you need. The finish is protected by a layer of gloss, as well as a pickguard to prevent against unwanted nicks and chips as you rock out.
The Soloist SL4X benefits from Jackson's neck-through-body construction, which not only improves playability, but also bestows upon the guitar an enviable sustain. The single-piece maple neck is reinforced using graphite to prevent unwanted twisting or warping to improve the neck's longevity.
Married to the neck is a glorious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24-frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way. Shaped to Jackson's pioneering compound radius, the fingerboard features a rounder shape at the nut for easier chord fretting, extending to a flatter shape at the neck joint for deftly sweeping through arpeggios, performing seamless string bends, and smashing through solos.
Duncan Designed Pickups
As noted above, the X Series Soloist SL4X is equipped with a trio of Duncan Designed single-coil Hot Rails fitted in the neck, middle and bridge positions. By employing three single-coils, the tonal versatility of the SL4X is extended beyond other configurations that make it perfect for fusion, hard rock, and of course, metal! From glassy cleans to aggressive crunch, this setup has everything you need to bring your playing to life. Control couldn't be easier, removing as many obstacles from your path so that you can get on with tearing it up on stage.
Floyd Rose precision
To ensure optimum intonation and sustain along with peerless vibrato control, Jackson have equipped the body with a Floyd Rose Special double locking 2-point tremolo. Paired with Floyd Rose locking nuts, you can rest assured that once you tune up and lock in, your strings will faithfully adhere to your playing, no matter how punishing it may be.
