The Jackson SL2 is the "other" version of the flagship models that Jackson has offered for years upon years. The guitar was constructed in the 80s to serve those who wanted absolute performance out of their guitars. This guitar features a strat style alder body, maple neck, ebony fretboard with sharkfin inlays, original Floyd Rose, HH configuration, a volume knob, a tone knob and a 3 way switch.


The neck-thru design that Jackson used on this guitar is wonderful. There are 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 SL1. 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 guitar isn't quite as versatile as the original SL1, but it's still a great guitar. The JB in the bridge gives it this awesome sound that works for nearly any style of music you throw at it. Most people associate it with rock, but it can do metal and even jazz fusion without much of a problem. The '59 in the neck is my "go to" Duncan pickup, and it is absolutely wonderful. It has a nice bite to it, but it also has some warmth to where it handles fat lead lines with ease.


If you wanted a Soloist with an HH configuration, this is probably the guitar you'll be looking at getting. It is a very nicely constructed guitar that really delivers. One problem I'm having lately with Jackson is that these guitars are somewhat expensive, so you might want to look on the used market for one of these.
