"The original neckthru Jackson"

The Jackson SL1 is one of the flagship models that Jackson has offered for years upon years. It was built in the 80s to serve those who want absolute performance out of their guitars. This guitar features a strat style alder body, maple neck, ebony fretboard with sharkfin inlays, original Floyd Rose, HSS configuration, a volume knob, a tone knob and a 5 way blade switch.


Jackson's neck-thru design is wonderful. There is absolutely no issues at all with getting to the higher frets. Those of you who had issues with the Dinky DK1 will probably be looking into either this or the SL2. The really cool thing about this is that it has a compound radius. That means that chording on the lower register is much easier to do, and big bends on the higher register won't fret out like they would on a normal radius. The fretwork on this guitar is usually really good, too.


This is probably the most versatile guitar that Jackson offers. The guitar comes equipped with Seymour Duncan pickups, and the pickups are awesome. In the bridge, you have the iconic Duncan JB. This has a bit of a searing quality to it, and while it's not super tight, it's just tight enough to work with most any style out there. In the middle and neck, you have the Duncan Classic Stack pickups. These are very versatile single coils that can deliver nearly any tone you're looking for. While most people associate Jacksons with metal, this guitar can really do it all thanks to its versatile configuration.


If you're looking for one of the most versatile guitars that Jackson has to offer, you should really check this model out. While I generally prefer the Dinky guitars due to their bolt-on construction, the Jackson Soloist is a great guitar that should be able to do nearly any style you'd like.
