X Series Soloist™ SL3X Zebrawood, Laurel Fingerboard, Natural
The Jackson name has always been synonymous with state-of-the-art guitar technology and playing, leading the way in crafting instruments that exceed the demands of modern players. The X Series Soloist™ SL3X Zebrawood is another bold step in the world of high-tech guitars.
A stylishly contoured poplar body with zebrawood top is combined with pure Jackson neck-through-body construction, ensuring ergonomic comfort during long sets along with monstrous sustain and smooth playing all the way up to the 24th jumbo fret. Graphite reinforcement rods run through the one-piece maple neck, protecting it against environmental depredations, while the ultra-fast 12"-16" compound radius laurel fingerboard is built from the get-go for easy chording and riffing near the nut and rapid, fret-out-free leads as you move up the neck.
A machine designed to unleash your musical beast, the SL3X features a select power trio of Duncan Designed™ pickups; two high-output HR-101 Hot Rails single-coil pickups in the middle and neck positions are matched to a powerful HB-103 humbucking bridge pickup for complementary harmonic response and highly dynamic responsiveness. Single volume and tone controls along with a five-way blade switch control the formidable pickups’ output, making their power yours to command.
The Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo bridge system is fluidly easy to use, ensuring that your axe precisely returns to its original tuning after every dive-bomb.
Available in an understated yet elegant Natural finish, the X Series Soloist SL3X bears Jackson’s traditional appointments—gold hardware, knurled dome control knobs, pearloid sharkfin fingerboard inlays and the famous Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock. Engineered for the 21st century musician, the SL3X Zebrawood melds classic style with modern materials and construction for this precision music machine.
POPLAR BODY WITH ZEBRAWOOD TOP
Poplar offers a meaty, resonant tone that is quite similar to alder. The poplar body is capped with a uniquely striped zebrawood top. Durable and solid, zebrawood produces defined dark overtones, deep bass notes and crisp treble.

HSS CONFIGURATION: DUNCAN DESIGNED™ HB-103B/DUNCAN DESIGNED™ HR-101 HOT RAILS™ PICKUPS
An atypical configuration for Jackson, this guitar features a humbucker in the bridge position and two Hot-Rails™ pickups in the neck and mid positions. The powerful Duncan Designed HB-103B delivers high output tone with lots of crunch and harmonics, while the fearsome Duncan Designed™ HR-101 Hot Rails™ deliver warm and articulate chords, with a scoop in the mids, solos will be fat and crisp with near-endless sustain.
