Jackson X Series Soloist SLATTXMGQ3-6, Transparent Purple, Rosewood
One name is synonymous with the utmost in high-performance guitar design-Jackson, the progenitor of all musical speed machines. Conceived as a launching platform for technically advanced guitar playing, the X Series SoloistTM SLATTXMGQ3-6 is rife with Jackson's bloodline-sophisticated ergonomic design, ultra-fast playability and, of course, monstrous tone.
Dual graphite reinforcement rods run the length of the one-piece maple neck with speed profile to fortify it against the extremes of nature, buttressing it against warping while a speedy 12"-16" compound radius fingerboard creates the ideal playing surface for fat riffs and easy chording near the black plastic nut while gradually flattening in the upper registers for lightning-quick solos and wide bends without fear of fretting out. A pair of EMG active humbucking pickups-an 85 neck pickup and 81 bridge pickup-generate versatile, huge and high output tones for brutal distortion and clear, crisp cleans. The Charvel®-Jackson compound radius compensated bridge produces massive sustain, and when combined with the Jackson-branded tuning machines, rock-solid tuning stability along with precise intonation.
Classic Jackson appointments include the instantly recognizable piranha inlays, black hardware, single-ply neck binding and the Soloist's ergonomically arched top for playing blazing licks with comfort. Sleek, refined, and dangerous, the X Series SoloistTM SLATTXMGQ3-6 is art brought to life, tempered with high-tech performance for the ultimate metal machine.
NAME-BRAND PICKUPS AND HARDWARE
Jackson X series models feature a selection of EMG® and Duncan DesignedTM humbucking pickups for unparalleled tonal versatility from clean to heavily distorted. All tremolo-equipped models feature Floyd Rose® Special bridges.
GRAPHITE-REINFORCED NECK-THROUGH DESIGN
True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980. For greater playability and sustain, X Series models feature a neck-through design usually reserved for much more expensive instruments. Further, graphite support rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
X Series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative 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.
GORGEOUS JACKSON STYLE
The X Series presents a wealth of distinctive Jackson stylistic options from the subdued to the striking. Sharkfin or "piranha" fingerboard inlays. The traditional Jackson six-in-line headstock or an AT headstock with tuners on either side. Deep solid colors or beautifully figured tops. The X Series has something for everyone.
