Here's what Jackson say about the SL2 HT:
Unleash your creativity with the innovative Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL2 HT MAH. A high performance evolution of the electric guitar, this ergonomic instrument opens up new horizons of playability, resetting the bar of what’s possible in guitar design.
Body & Neck
Premium features include a resonant mahogany top and body and one-piece through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement rods to provide stiffness and high stability, guarding against temperature- and humidity-induced bending and warping.
The SL2’s lightning fast 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard (with 24 jumbo frets) is designed for highly technical lightspeed playing—more curved by the nut for comfortable chording, it flattens out as you move up the speedy neck (with hand-rubbed oil finish) for increasingly fast playing speed and wide bends without fretting out.
Chosen specifically for their incredible sound, a pair of modern Seymour Duncan® Distortion humbucking pickups (TB-6 bridge/SH-6N neck) drives this guitar’s voice, combining for highly balanced, flexible tone, with plenty of high output for pristine cleans and snarling distortion.
Master volume and tone controls shape the pickups’ output, which can be further refined with the three-position pickup toggle switch for the precise voice required to bring your musical vision to life, while a Jackson HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge provides improved sustain. All the famous Jackson appointments are offered with the SL2 HT MAH —black hardware, a satin Natural Mahogany finish, pearloid piranha tooth neck inlays, single-ply binding around the body, neck and Jackson’s signature pointed 6-in-line headstock.
