Product Description

The Jackson SL2 Pro Soloist Electric Guitar is designed for metal players and shredders who require a super fast neck, sleek looks and the tonal versatility to handle rhythm and lead playing. With an alder body, 3-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and hand-rubbed oil finish, compound-radius (12-16 inch) ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and alumiloid piranha inlays, The Jackson SL2 Pro Soloist is a true player’s guitar.

Direct-mount Seymour Duncan JB TB-4 (bridge) and SH-1 '59 (neck) humbucking pickups with 3-way toggle switching provide power, versatility and remarkable touch dynamics. The Floyd Rose bridge makes for smooth, stable tremolo use that lead players demand.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Fantastic guitar. As titled by Jackson this is indeed a pro instrument, at a very fair mid-range price.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Defect free not even 1 single rough fret which I was expecting. Most people will probably want to buy a Jackson for metal. However the choice in pick ups are Good for diversity. They provide a very wide tonal range in my opinion for all genres but still give you hard hitting metal tones. Don't be put off because it does not have EMG's
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Perfect weight. Not at all heavy yet enough meat to remind you its there. I could take the easy road and just copy paste Jacksons details but I won't. I will confirm them to be true. Jacksons compound radius neck is the best in the buisness. Faster than fast neck. Works great with very low action. Controls are perfectly placed. Easy to get to in a hurry but not in the way. Love the switch instead of a slider bar for selecting pick ups. It has good positive feed back. Not hard to manipulate in a hurry but not too easy where you end up flying by the middle position during a quick change.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The tone is everything I expected and more, of course its the operator knowing how to work the amp nobs that will decide not the guitar. Seymour Duncans sell themselves.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish is better than I expected. The black satin finish looks really good accented with the satin Grey hardware. Love the piranha inlays you can see em playing but from a few feet away they in normal to low light are invisible. Dunno if I hit the lotto with the fret board as Ebony is not always Black but the one I got is the blackest of the black.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
More. This thing is easily worth what they charge for USA customs. I had done some research and I saw lots of people inquiring if Indonesia manufactured Jacksons are good or not. Well Major props to Indonesia this thing is flawless. Im not a Jackson Fan boy I tried and can't find a single, even minor detail to complain about. The satin black is totally worth it as the 100 dollars you save by not getting the quilted maple snazzy paint job can be invested in a good quality case for this quality guitar. Seen some hardcore comments about the fact its a 1000 series Tremolo. Some people just dont want to admit the fact that they are exactly to spec the same thing with the only exception of not saying Germany on it. 30-35 hrs play time so far haven't had to touch a fine tuner yet with what I would describe as moderate use of the bar.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Perfect. Everything was exactly how I want it. Low action, Trem was level, intonation spot on, was even in tune even though I always restring a new guitar anyways.
