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 Series Soloist SL2A MAH features a resonant mahogany body with ash top and a through-body maple neck with scarf joint for reduced playing fatigue, graphite-reinforcement rods for stability against temperate-and-humidity induced warping and an oiled back finish for smooth playability. Its 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
Designed for aggressive playing styles, modern Seymour Duncan® Distortion™ bridge and neck humbucking pickups combine for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output while retaining clarity. Think pristine cleans, crunchy rhythms, snarling distortion and searing leads. Explore this instrument’s versatile voice with three-way toggle switching and single volume and tone controls, and dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system, recessed for pick hand comfort and providing laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning.
Jackson has a history of adding striking style to its high-performance instruments, and the Pro SL2A MAH is no exception. This instrument is available in a battle-hardened Charcoal Gray finish with matching pointed 6-in-line headstock and brooding black hardware, or in a magical Unicorn White (NEW, AVAILABLE MAY 2021) finish with matching Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock, 2-ply black/celluloid pearl binding, pearloid piranha tooth inlays and black nickel hardware combine for a rare and remarkable instrument.
Mahogany Body with Ash Top
Mahogany produces a rich, warm and resonant tone that is well balanced, while the ash top exhibits a snappier tone with a bright edge, but also provides warm bass and long sustain.

Seymour Duncan® Distortion™ TB-6/SH-6N
The powerful TB-6 trembucker was built for the most aggressive of styles—punk, gothic, thrash, hard rock and heavy metal. Ideal for dropped tunings, this high-output pickup delivers punch and raw, distorted rock sounds. The SH-6 Distortion neck pickup is perfect for driving—or overdriving — your amp's input, yielding a ton of crunch while maintaining clarity.
