The SLXT Q delivers that uncompromising performance—as primal or refined as you want it to be, the Jackson bloodline runs strong through this axe. The SLXT Q’s massively thick sound is powered by a select duo of Duncan Designed humbucking pickups—an alnico HB-103N neck pickup and hot ceramic HB-103B bridge pickup —providing crisp cleans and articulate high-gain distortion with plenty of girth for palm-muted and downtuned riffage.
Graphite-reinforced neck-through construction imparts massive sustain while refusing to shift when traveling through various climates. The breakneck-fast 12-16 inch compound-radius rosewood fingerboard is designed for modern metal—execute riffs and chords with comfortable ease in the lower registers while the flatter radius in the upper register lends itself to nimble leadwork without fretting out during wide bends. Rock-solid, the TOM-style bridge offers adjustable intonation along with rugged tuning stability for the precision demanded by today’s crop of metal guitarists.
Reach for the SLXT Q whenever you find yourself in need of a take-no-prisoners guitar with jaw-dropping style, colossal sound and high-tech performance from the company that defines the bleeding edge of instrument design—Jackson.
