Engineered from its inception for high speed, technically demanding guitar playing the Pro Soloist SL2 is a purebred shred machine. The fine minds at Jackson put their heads together and created the next evolution of innovative guitars, melding sound, playability and ultra-modern style into a unique music machine that redefines metal prowess and innovative guitar design.

Dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose FRT-O5000 double-locking tremolo bridge, recessed for pick hand comfort and providing laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning when combined with the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut. Chosen specifically for their complementary sound, a pair of modern Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem humbucking pickups drives this guitar's versatile sound - highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for pristine cleans and snarling distortion. Master volume and tone controls shape the pickups' output, which can be further refined with the three-position pickup toggle switch for the precise voice required to bring your musical vision to life. The 12"-16" compound radius fingerboard is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing-more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out. The ergonomic Soloist body shape is designed for player comfort and increased balance, eliminating the dread "neck dive" that has brought many a headstock to a sad, untimely end.

Jackson has a history of adding striking style to its high performance instruments, and this axe is no exception. The brooding black nickel hardware wears well, refusing to show the rigors of the road it may encounter while the durable gloss finish, alumiloid piranha neck inlays, single ply neck binding and Jackson's signature pointed 6-In-Line headstock establish this instrument's unmistakable pedigree. Innovative, lightning fast, monstrous-sounding and more than easy on the eyes, the Pro Soloist SL2 is the perfect match for modern metal musicians.

looks cool, sounds cool, changing strings on that sucks, floating action, not a fan of the nut, whammy bar in the way, great if you always use it but nah its in my way lol haha, when I go up to the first fret my index finger gets caught up with the nut. Awesome easy to bend at the 12th fret, the frets are smooth to go up and down the neck fast, light N tight neck, really good for speed metal, just not for me. I got 3 other jacksons that were for me , just not this one.

Solid guitar that plays like a true shred machine. Looks great in gloss black aswell. I love it. Tones are quite thick and fat aswell, thanks to the mahogany.
