For those looking to expand their sonic palette, the fine minds at Jackson melded innovative design, superior sound, high-performance playability and ultra-modern style to create its 7-string Soloist™ models.
Purebred and ergonomic shred machines, the SL7Q features a 25.5” scale, mahogany body with quilt maple top, one-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, and 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and piranha tooth inlays.
Dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose® FRT-SSO2000 double-locking tremolo bridge, recessed for pick hand comfort and providing laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning when combined with a 7-string Floyd Rose locking nut.
The SL7Q is available in an Alien Burst finish, featuring all-black hardware, single ply neck binding and a reverse Jackson pointed 7-in-line headstock.
SEYMOUR DUNCAN DISTORTION (SH-6B 7S)
The Distortion 7-string bridge incorporates a massive ceramic magnet and hot coil windings to deliver well-balanced rock and metal tones that have upper midrange harmonic content and a focused top-end perfect for keeping your low strings responsive and articulate. Great for hard hitting, crunchy rhythms, and searing lead tone. This passive humbucker comes in a standard open-coil look or black metal humbucker cover, both in a classic passive mount to easily fit in any guitar with that routing.
Jackson began back in the late 1970s, when heavy music experienced a flamboyant and virtuosic resurgence in popularity and a small Southern California guitar repair shop became the epicenter of a new level of shred-approved excellence. Ever since then, Jackson guitars have been universally lauded as the metal guitars; the shred machines—highly original high-performance instruments of distinctive style and formidable substance. www.jacksonguitars.com
