The concept of creating a sleek and deadly guitar combining a traditional double-cutaway body style and scale length with shark-like high performance was ingrained into Jackson’s DNA at birth in the early 1980s. The resulting instrument, the Soloist, debuted in 1984.
With an addictive compound-radius fingerboard and a new pitch on its through-body neck, the highly versatile Soloist was built to shred. With those features and such a sleekly alluring look, it’s easy to understand why the Soloist has earned so much acclaim. It remains one of the most popular and oft-imitated Jackson models ever.
