The American Series SoloistTM SL3’s alder body is matched with a sustain-enhancing throughbody three-piece maple neck that has a pair of graphite reinforcement rods for the ultimate stability to resist temperature and humidity-induced bending and warping. The Soloist was built for speed and engineered to become the fastest guitar in Jackson’s portfolio thanks to its legendary Speed Neck, which includes masterfully rolled fingerboard edges for maximum comfort. To complement the neck profile, the Soloist sports a compound radius that starts at 12” at the nut and flattens to 16” at the 12th fret for screaming bends and intricate finger work as you move up the neck. Add in player-focused features like Luminlay side dots to illuminate your fretboard on dark stages and quick access truss rod adjustment to make easy neck relief adjustments, the result is an instrument ready to take on any stage at any time.
