X Series Soloist™ SLX Koa, Rosewood Fingerboard, Natural
Distinctive and affordable, Jackson’s X Series Soloist™ models are built for speed, and loaded with purebred Jackson DNA.
The X Series Soloist™ SLX Koa features a basswood body with a gorgeous koa top, through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and tilt-back scarf joint headstock for greater playing comfort. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkin inlays, the 12"-16" compound radius fully bound dark rosewood fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out.
Duncan Designed™ alnico HB-103N (neck) and high-output ceramic HB-103B (bridge) humbucking pickups power this metal beast, which also includes single volume and tone controls, three-way blade switching and a Floyd Rose® Special double-locking two-point tremolo for rock-solid tuning stability.
As well as a tonal machine, the SLX Koa is sure to draw attention for its looks - thanks to its beautifully stained Natural finish and black hardware.
The SLX’s basswood body is topped with Koa, an elegant and exotic tonewood full of resonance and warmth, with nice high-end shimmer.

Floyd Rose® Special Double-Locking 2-Point Tremolo

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.
