What Haworth Guitars say:
The Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL2M Electric Guitar with Maple Fretboard is a premium electric guitar by Jackson.
At Haworth Guitars we love the Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL2M Guitar's through-body maple neck, Floyd Rose Tremolo and Ebony compound radius fretboard as well as the powerful set of Seymour Duncan Distortion Pickups.
What Jackson has to say:
Standing head and shoulders above the rest in a crowded field of “me too” instruments, the Pro Soloist SL2M is a highly engineered shredding machine. Jackson created the high-tech guitar, and our DNA and legacy shine brightly in this easy playing, gigantic-sounding guitar. Striking aesthetics, versatile tone and the pinnacle of advanced guitar craftsmanship unite in the SL2M.
Chosen specifically for their complementary sound, a pair of Seymour Duncan® humbucking pickups drives this guitar’s versatile sound—a T6-6 Distortion bridge pickup and SH-6N neck pickup combine for flexible tone, with plenty of output for crisp cleans and snarling distortion. Master volume and tone controls shape the pickups’ output, which can be further refined with the three-position blade pickup switch for the precise voice you need to bring your musical vision to life. Make your playing dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo bridge which is recessed for your pick hand comfort and provides laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning when combined with the Floyd Rose R3 locking nut. The 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the 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, piranha tooth (small shark fin) neck inlays, single ply neck binding and Jackson’s signature pointed 6-In-Line headstock establish this instrument’s unmistakable pedigree. The ideal instrument for soaring leads, squealing pinch harmonics and chunky palm-muted riffage, the Pro Soloist SL2M is a more-than-worthy competitor in the musical ring.
