Another amazing Jackson guitar with a superb spec. A spec that well outweighs its superb pricepoint.
The Seymour Duncan "distortion mayhem" pickups sound absolutely superb but they actually sound great clean too, although they obviously do excel under high gain settings.
Here's what Jackson have to say about the Soloist SL2:
"Unleash your creativity with the innovative Jackson Pro Soloist SL2 MAH. Fast and streamlined, this ergonomic instrument opens up new horizons of playability, resetting the bar of what's possible in guitar design.
Premium features include a resonant mahogany top and body and one-piece through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement rods to provide stiffness and stability, guarding against temperature- and humidity-induced bending and warping. The SL2's lightning fast 12"-16" compound radius ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is designed for highly technical light speed playing- more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck (with hand-rubbed oil back finish) for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
Chosen specifically for their incredible sound, a pair of modern Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem humbucking pickups drives this guitar's voice, combining 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. Dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose 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.
All the famous Jackson appointments are offered with the SL2 MAH-black hardware, a durable Natural satin finish, pearloid piranha tooth inlays and single-ply binding around the body, neck and Jackson's signature pointed 6-in-line headstock."
