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 SL2P MAH include a resonant mahogany body with poplar burl top and a through-body maple neck with hand-rubbed oil finish on the back for smooth playability, as well as scarf joint and graphite-reinforcement rods that provide stiffness and high stability to guard against temperature- and humidity-induced bending and warping. 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 humbucking bridge and neck 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 pickup 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 this axe is no exception. Available in Carmel Burl or Transparent Black Burst (NEW! AVAILABLE MARCH 2021), the SL2P MAH is completed with alumiloid piranha inlays, Dunlop® strap locks, sealed die-cast tuners, Jackson pointed 6-in-line matching headstock and black or black nickel hardware.
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 distinctive wood grain pattern that pairs wonderfully with a variety of transparent finishes.

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.
