Jackson Custom Shop SLHS Soloist Custom White and Blue

Item: FE2849962000

Rainbow Guitars is very proud to introduce our second run of Jackson Custom Shop SLHS guitars. This time we went with Maple fretboards and colored binding for a truly unique look that steps out of any crowd, and features a tone that will stand in front of any mix. So before we discuss build specs, I have to give “props” to the Jackson Custom Shop who has outdone themselves on these guitars. Jackson matched our “mocked up” color schemes to the “T”, and in fact, had to source a binding manufacturer to custom make our colored binding - Thank You Jackson.

Lets begin… We started with a Maple fretboard on a Jackson “Speed Neck” and then, upon Jackson’s recommendation, fretted with a medium fretwire. These frets are the same that Eddie Van Halen uses on his EVH guitars, they are skinnier, and allow more space between frets for maximum shredding, especially in the higher registers. There is no finish on the back of the neck, giving that classic, smooth raw wood feel that started the Metal scene in the 80s. This neck plays great, and also contributes an articulate, biting attack to your tone that will instantly remind you of your favorite 80s Metal gods.

The pickups in the Jackson SLHS series are pure classics. The bridge pickup is a DiMarzio PAF Pro, and has been used by Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Paul Gilbert (to name a few) before they had their own signature pickups. The PAF Pro has a very clear and articulate sound with a lot of soulful character. This is a medium output pickup that allows notes to be heard clearly even during extremely fast picking techniques. No more “chunk sound” every time you pick high notes. The neck pickup is a DiMarzio HS-3 made famous by Yngwie, we all know how good this pickup sounds, and it is also a perfect complement to the PAF Pro. This guitar has all of our guitar heroes’ sounds at the flick of a switch, and we moved that switch to where the volume knob used to be, so now you can easily switch between bridge and neck pickups during a solo, something not possible on a standard Soloist. And that pesky Soloist volume knob… we moved it to a brand new location that’s out of the way but still easy to grab.

Here at Rainbow, we know if you’re going to go bold, you need to go all the way, and that’s exactly what we did. The Jackson Custom Shop SLHS Soloist Custom is a shred machine designed for extreme playability, inspiring tone, and looks that kill. If you see a color you like, grab it before it’s gone, you will not be disappointed. Shred fast, and shred accurately. - Scott
