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-O2000 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 pickups drives this guitar’s versatile sound—a crisp JBTM TB4 humbucking bridge pickup and warm ‘59TM SH1N direct-mount humbucking neck pickup combine for 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 all-black 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. Case sold separately.

Deservs every cent. Fine fingerboard, makes really easier to play fast. There is really no need to buy the expensive USA models if you are not professional musician.
