The Jackson SL3 Soloist features an alder body with a flame maple top on a transparent orange finish. Its maple neck through body combined with its compound radius rosewood fingerboard provides amazing sustain, and quick playability. It is powered by EMG pickups. It also features a Floyd Rose tremolo and chrome hardware. Jackson's compound-radius 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.
