When the fine minds at Jackson designed our Pro Series Soloist™ models, they melded sound, playability and ultra-modern style to create a unique music machine that redefines metal prowess.
Engineered from its inception for high-speed, technically-demanding guitar playing, the Pro SL2P HT MAH's premium features include a resonant mahogany body with a poplar burl top and a one-piece through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement rods to provide stiffness and stability, guarding against temperature- and humidity-induced bending and warping. Hosting 24 jumbo frets, its 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the neck (with hand-rubbed oil back finish) for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
Chosen specifically for their incredible sound, a pair of modern Seymour Duncan® Distortion humbucking pickups drives this guitar’s voice, combining for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for pristine cleans and snarling distortion. Single volume and tone controls shape the pickups’ output, which can be further refined with the three-way pickup toggle switch for the precise voice required to bring your musical vision to life, while a Jackson HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge provides endless sustain.
Jackson has a reputation for adding striking style to its high-performance instruments, and these axes are no exception. The (NEW!) Desert Sand finish features pointed 6-in-line matching headstock, black body,
neck and headstock binding and black nickel hardware. The Carmel Burl model is completed with alumiloid piranha inlays, black hardware including the Dunlop® strap locks and the sealed die-cast locking tuners, and single-ply binding around the body, neck and traditional Jackson pointed 6-in-line matching headstock.
MAHOGANY BODY WITH POPLAR BURL TOP
Mahogany produces a rich, warm and resonant tone that is well balanced. The poplar burl top adds upper midrange as well as a stunning figure top that pairs wonderfully with a variety of transparent finishes.
