X Series Soloist™ SLXQ LH, Laurel Fingerboard, Transparent Black
Distinctive and affordable, X Series models are built for speed and loaded with purebred Jackson® DNA. A venerable workhorse designed for effortless playability, the Jackson X Series Soloist™ SLX LH elevates your sound and performance.
Ergonomically contoured, the poplar body and through-body maple neck with tilt-back headstock create a playing experience like no other. Hardy graphite rods reinforce the neck for robust durability against temperature or humidity shifts while the ultra-fast 12-16” compound radius laurel fingerboard is engineered for comfortable chording and riffing near the nut and bind-free bends as you move up the neck.
Enjoy highly dynamic response and massive sound from the pair of Duncan Designed™ pickups; a biting HB-103B humbucking bridge pickup is matched to a powerful HB-103N humbucking neck pickup for articulate tone, channeled by single volume and tone controls, along with three-way blade switching. The recessed Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo system is expressive and maintains Jackson’s world-famous tuning stability.
Who said left-handed players need to compromise when it comes to their guitars? The SLX LH is dressed in traditional Jackson style—black hardware, including the knurled dome control knobs and switch tips, pearloid sharkfin fingerboard inlays, famous Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock and highly durable Satin Black finish.
12"-16" Compound Radius Fingerboard
Jackson pioneered the use of the innovative 12"-16" compound radius design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.

Floyd Rose® Special Double-Locking 2-Point Tremolo (Recessed)
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.
