Pro Series Soloist™ SL7Q, Ebony Fingerboard, Alien Burst
For those looking to expand their sonic palette, the fine minds at Jackson melded innovative design, superior sound, high-performance playability and ultra-modern style to create its 7-string Soloist™ models.
Purebred and ergonomic shred machines, the SL7Q features a 25.5” scale, mahogany body with quilt maple top, one-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, and 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and piranha tooth inlays.
Chosen specifically for their complementary sound, a pair of Seymour Duncan® SH-6 7 pickups drives this guitar’s versatile sound—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 five-way blade switch for the precise voice required to bring your musical vision to life.
Dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose® FRT-SSO2000 double-locking tremolo bridge, recessed for pick hand comfort and providing laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning when combined with a 7-string Floyd Rose locking nut.
The SL7Q is available in an Alien Burst finish, featuring all-black hardware, single ply neck binding and a reverse Jackson pointed 7-in-line headstock.

Graphite Reinforced Neck-Through-Body Design
True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980, allowing for greater playability and sustain. Neck-thru is a method of guitar construction which involves extending the piece of maple wood used for the neck through the entire length of the body. Graphite reinforcement rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
