X Series Soloist™ SLXQ LH, Laurel Fingerboard, Transparent Black
Engineered specifically for left-handed players, the Soloist SLX LH is a shredder’s dream guitar at an unbeatable value! Use this instrument to tame the screaming hordes, secure in the knowledge it will keep up with your rumbling riffs and fleet soloing. Designed for near-effortless playability and titanic sound, this stylish axe will remove any barriers to elevating your music to the next level.
Ergonomically contoured, the basswood body and maple neck-through-body neck with tilt-back headstock create thick tone and a playing experience like no other. Hardy graphite rods reinforce the three-piece neck for robust durability against temperature or humidity shifts while the ultra-fast 12-16” compound radius rosewood fingerboard is engineered for comfortable chording and riffing near the nut and bind-free bends as you move up the neck.
Enjoy highly dynamic response and massive sound from the pair of Duncan Designed™ pickups; a biting HB-103B humbucking bridge pickup is matched to a powerful HB-103N humbucking neck pickup for articulate tone, channeled by single volume and tone controls, along with three-way blade switching. The recessed Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo system is expressive and maintains Jackson’s world-famous tuning stability.
The SLX LH is dressed with traditional Jackson style—black hardware, including the knurled dome control knobs and switch tips, pearloid sharkfin fingerboard inlays, the famous Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock and highly durable gloss polyurethane finish. Who said left-handed players need to compromise when it comes to their guitars?
12"-16" Compound Radius Fingerboard
Jackson pioneered the use of the innovative 12"-16" compound radius design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.

Floyd Rose® Special Double-Locking 2-Point Tremolo (Recessed)
Recessed for picking-hand comfort, the Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo features zinc alloy saddles and a zinc alloy sustain block. The double-locking design allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge, resulting in excellent tuning stability and sustain throughout your most aggressive pull-ups and dive bombs.
