The Jackson® name has always been synonymous with state-of-the-art guitar technology and the company continues to lead the way in crafting instruments that exceed the demands of today’s most discerning players. In May this year, Jackson launched a host of new X Series models . Now in their Fall product announcement, Jackson has offered 3 more X Series models.
X Series Soloist™ SLX DX, Laurel Fingerboard ( $1,599.00 AUD)
Distinctive and affordable, Jackson’s X Series Soloist™ model is built for speed and comfort! The X Series Soloist TM SLX DX is a venerable double cutaway workhorse that offers many fine features desired by today’s shredders. The SLX DX features a poplar body, through-body maple neck with graphite reinforcement and tilt-back scarf joint headstock. Hosting 24 jumbo frets, its 12”-16” fully bound compound radius laurel fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. Available in Manalishi Green.
X Series Warrior™ WRX24M, Maple Fingerboard ($1,799.00 AUD)
The X Series Warrior™ WRX24M model is a fiendishly affordable take on Jackson’s radically X-shaped shredder. Ingrained with purebred Jackson® DNA, ultra-fast playability and unbelievable value, the WRX24M features a 25.5” scale length, resonant poplar body and through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement for solid stability that guards against climate and humidity changes. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and distinctive sharkfin inlays, the 12”-16” compound radius bound maple fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. Available in Ferrari Red.
X Series Concert TM Bass CBXNT DX V, Laurel Fingerboard ($1,799.00 AUD)
The Jackson® X Series Concert TM Bass CBXNT DX V is a highly versatile bass designed for one express purpose—bringing the thunder to your music. Upgraded electronics, classically brutal style and fast, efficient playability make this entry into the lineup a fundamental force to be reckoned with. Perfect for rock or metal—or other styles that demand low, punchy bass—this instrument is an unbelievable value. This 34”-scale bass pairs a poplar body with a graphite-reinforced neck-through-body design that generates formidable sustain, while the speed maple neck contour, 12”-16” compound radius bound laurel fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets make for lightning-fast playability.
