A Classic Superstrat Returns to America

The Jackson American Soloist launches a comeback

First born in California's Jackson Custom Shop, the neck-thru, 24-fret, hot-rodded Jackson Soloist has long been a holy grail for high-octane players across the globe. Now, Jackson returns to its Southern California roots to offer the American Series Soloist, built in its brand new Corona, California production facility.

With bold finishes, Floyd Rose trem, the legendary Speed Neck, and a compound radius fretboard, the new Jackson American Soloists are built for speed.

Like a nice sports car, the American Soloists are not just quick machines. They're comfortable instruments that invite anyone along for the joyride. Thru-neck construction and smooth, rolled edges make it a blast to play, even as you fly by the seat of your pants. Full features, according to Jackson, include:

  • Speed Neck profile: A souped-up neck shape taken from classic Jackson Soloists.
  • Compound radius fretboard: Starts at 12" at the nut and flattens to 16" at the 12th fret.
  • Thru-neck construction: A defining feature of original Soloists, it's the backbone of the guitar, maximizing sustain and tonal variety.
  • High-performance touches: Luminlay fretboard markers, Gotoh MG-T Locking Tuners, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel.
  • More features: Shark tooth inlays, Seymour Duncan JB TB-4 and SSL-6 pickups, and Floyd Rose 1500 bridge

The Soloist can, of course, shred with the best of them. But how would a tasteful roots player, say, someone like Ariel Posen, think of it? Well, we surprised Ariel and Warforged's bonafide metalhead Max Damske to get their honest reactions to the Jackson American Soloist. What's yours?
