Until now, 27-fret models have been available only through the Jackson Custom Shop. Due to high demand from so many full-on shredder diehards, we now bring you our first-ever 27-fret production model in the form of the Jackson® Limited Edition Wildcard Series Soloist™ Arch Top Extreme SL27 EX.
Absolutely radiant in a Blue Sparkle finish with a color matched reverse pointed 6-in-line headstock and chrome hardware, this high-performance axe has an aggressively carved alder Soloist body with arched top and a through-body three-piece maple neck with graphite reinforcement and satin finish on the back. Primed for energetic riffing near the nut or blazing leads and aggressive bends in the upper registers, the 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard features 27 jumbo frets, a pearloid sharkfin at the 12thfret and Luminlay® side dots.
The HS pickup configuration routing features direct mount DiMarzio® Super Distortion® DP100FW+BK bridge and DiMarzio Air Norton S™ DP180W neck pickups. Designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, the Super Distortion has a perfect blend of power and tone — thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs. Boasting expressive pick attack and dynamics, the Air Norton S neck pickup provides deep and warm tone, but not muddy and is also hot without being distorted. Dial in the instrument’s voice to taste with a three-way toggle switch, single volume control and single tone control, and radically dive bomb without going out of tune thanks to the Floyd Rose® Original double-locking tremolo bridge system.
This assertive axe is finished off with Gotoh® sealed die-cast tuners and Dunlop® dual-locking strap buttons.
