Epic Tone and Performance

From solid riffs to intense solos, the Jackson Soloist SLX DX solidbody electric guitar is the affordable axe you want in your arsenal. The first thing you’ll notice when you pick up your Soloist SLX DX is how comfortable it feels. The body is comprised of lightweight nyatoh, contoured with classic curves. Its maple neck is topped with a compound-radius fretboard, a favorite design among rockers here because it lets you fret chords and solo with ease. Top it off with Jackson’s own high-output humbuckers, and you have an axe that looks, plays, and sounds like it belongs onstage.

Choose wisely. Play better.

One of Jackson’s mottos is “Choose wisely. Play better.” That’s not just hype either. The fact is, a well-made guitar, like a Soloist SLX DX, gives you a closer connection to your music. For instance, the Soloist SLX DX 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 SLX DX also gives you epic sustain.

Recessed Floyd Rose Special vibrato for aggressive dive-bombs

In typical Jackson fashion, this incredible guitar was built with nothing but quality hardware onboard. That’s why they gave the Jackson Soloist SLX DX guitar a real 2-point, double-locking recessed Floyd Rose vibrato tailpiece. The lightweight Floyd Rose Special vibrato tailpiece gives you the real feel of an original Floyd Rose, and it’s recessed engineering enables 2-way pitch bending so that you can dive and soar with ease to your heart’s creative content.

Jackson’s EGN humbuckers deliver classic growl

Great feel is only part of the equation. Jackson knows this better than just about any guitar maker. That’s why they’ve employed a knockout duo of wailing Jackson humbuckers to get the job done. These are high-output — and is it ever obvious! When you need some extra giddy-up, the Soloist SLX DX calls on these growling humbuckers for a feistily classic bridge and neck tone combo that will satisfy any shredder. What’s more, the natural harmonics served up by the nyatoh body really start to shimmer, supplementing your sound with a veneer of precision and character.
