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. Boasting Jackson’s trademark high-speed playability and performance with a mid-range price tag, the X Series Soloist™ SL4X guitar is also the only product in the current lineup to offer a triple single-coil pickup route configuration.
With a third Duncan Designed™ HR-101 Hot Rails pickup added between the neck and bridge pickup, we’ve unlocked an even wider and more versatile range of tones. Hot wound rails coupled with a powerful ceramic magnet power this musical beast with the aggressive crunch and sustain hard rock and metal styles demand. With single volume and tone controls and a five-way blade switch, players can explore a variety of pickup combinations, while a Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo (recessed for picking hand comfort) bridge system provides superior string stability, sustain and dynamic tremolo action.
Featuring a 25.5” scale length, the SL4X is crafted out of basswood and coupled with a one-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, providing stability against the ravages of the road. Wrapped in white binding, its 12” -16” compound radius fingerboard features 24 jumbo frets and dot inlays.
Sleekly designed with bold style, the SL4X is available in eye-catching Bubblegum Pink, Daphne Blue, Neon Orange with white pickguards and a rosewood fingerboard. A (NEW!) Snow White finish features a black pickguard and laurel fingerboard. All SL4X models are finished off with black hardware and a traditional Jackson pointed 6-in-line black headstock.
SSS CONFIGURATION: DUNCAN DESIGNED™ HR-101 HOT RAILS™ PICKUPS
The only Jackson to incorporate an SSS pickup configuration, this model features three fearsome Duncan Designed™ HR-101 Hot Rails™ that deliver warm and articulate chords, with a scoop in the mids allowing solos to be fat and crisp with near-endless sustain.

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.
