Jackson X Series Soloist SLX Crackle, Orange Crackle, Laurel
Built for speed and loaded with purebred Jackson DNA, Jacksons X Series Soloist SLX models also come with a budget-friendly price tag.
Taking style to molten heights, the newly added Orange Crackle finishe features orange magma running through the Black finish. The volcanic SLX Crackle also features a basswood body paired with a through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and tilt-back scarf joint headstock. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays, its 12"-16" compound radius bound laurel 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 bridge system for superior string stability, improved sustain and dynamic tremolo action.
Ready to erupt, the SLX Crackle models are finished off with Jackson sealed die-cast tuners, black hardware and pointed 6-in-line headstock.
