X Series Soloist™ SLXQ LH, Laurel Fingerboard, Transparent Black

$649.99 MSRP

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.
