Jackson Custom Shop Soloist Satin White and Green

Item: FE2849891000

Rainbow Guitars is very proud to introduce our Satin finished run of Jackson Custom Shop guitars, and I have to say, these are the most “custom” Jackson guitars I’ve seen anywhere. Everything about our Satin series is custom, from the neck shape to the fret wire, from the pickups to the control layout, these are Jackson guitars built for shredding.

First off, this is one of the best feeling Soloist necks you may ever get your hands on, it’s straight out of the eighties, and built for speed. We started by removing the fretboard binding so the neck could be shaved down a bit, now don’t worry, this is not a ridiculously thin “prestige” neck shape, just thinner than your standard Jackson Soloist, and it feels immediately comfortable. For increased speed, 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. Next is fretwire, we specified tall, skinny Dunlop 6105 fretwire, these tall frets give a slightly scalloped feel to the fretboard and make hammer-ons, pull-offs, and tapping runs extra pronounced. These frets are also skinny and offer more space between notes, this is noticeable in the higher registers and makes shredding between the 20th to 24th frets actually possible. I’ve personally been using these frets since the early 90’s and consider them one of my secret weapons of speed playing.

The pickups in the Jackson Satin 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.

We knew, if we were going to have Jackson Custom Shop build us some of the baddest guitars available, these guitars would have to look bold, and grab people’s attention like a “tricked out” Muscle Car. We went with Satin finishes, matching painted headstocks, Jackson logos that match the colors of the pickups and knobs, and a bold color scheme that tips it’s hat to the wild 80s. The color choices were personally inspired to me by my love of skateboarding. When I was younger, I loved buying new skateboards, picking out a cool colored deck and then finding the perfect colored wheels to make a statement. And this is exactly what we’ve done with these killer “one of a kind” Jackson Custom Shop Soloists.

After an 18 month waiting period, Jackson Custom Shop has finally delivered our dream Custom Soloists with killer looks, extreme playability, and awesome tone. There are 5 of these guitars in the entire world, each with a unique color scheme, and only 5 of you shredders will get your hands on them. If you see a color you like, do not hesitate to buy it, you will not be disappointed. Shred. -Scott
