Breaking News – Jackson Guitars model names become incomprehensible; may sound like “SLUT”

SLATTXMGQ3-6 Soloist™

Get that in your face. It astounds me sometimes that marketing teams allow brands to create product lines which have such convoluted and just utterly unmemorable, alpha-numeric names. Imagine if the Gibson Les Paul had instead been called the Gibson LSPLSTD001Q42.

The hell.

Anyway… some new offerings from Jackson, where, much the same as the rest of the guitar world seems to be heading, the low/mid end of the market is the name of the game.

Here is the new X-Series Soloist. Planet of manufacture unconfirmed but I assume Indonesia or Vietnam. Both seem to be a popular destinations for lower cost guitar factories these days. #oldguy I remember the days when the name Soloist was a top of the line designation only used for USA models or the very best of the Japanese line. Where are those days headed now?? ESP, Jackson, Ibanez, it seems like everyone is headed this way – guys, I don’t have enough money to start hoarding all the cool old guitars, goddammit.

 

The six-string SLATTMGXQ3-6 features an arched Soloist™ mahogany body with a quilted maple top, a three-piece through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement for superior stability, EMG® 81 neck and 85 bridge pickups, a bound compound-radius (12”-16”) rosewood fingerboard with Piranha Pearloid inlays, 24 jumbo frets, 25.5” scale and a string-through-body Tone Pros™ tune-o-matic bridge.
