An outstanding value for the modern guitarist, the Jackson X Series guitars come jam packed with all the killer tone, classic style, shred-ready playability and superior performance that you've come to expect from Jackson—all at a price that won't drain your bank account.

The Jackson X Series SLATHX 3-8 sports an ergonomic Soloist basswood body featuring a beautiful quilt maple veneer and elegantly arched top. The ultra-fast 26.5"-scale maple neck runs through the body for amazing tone and endless sustain while graphite neck reinforcement ensures incredible stability. Whether you're playing massive power chords down by the nut or shredding it up in the lead range, the 12"-16" compound-radius dark rosewood fretboard offers incredible playability from the first fret to the last. The fretboard also comes loaded up with 24 jumbo frets to allow for effortless string bending while Piranha Tooth inlays and binding provide that unmistakable Jackson look.

Equipped with a pair of perfectly matched high-output Seymour Duncan Nazgul/Sentient bridge/neck humbuckers, the Jackson  SLATHX 3-8 is capable of serving up all of the burly, shred-ready tones that metal players demand. The Nazgul bridge pickup delivers all the tone you need for those dirty, ground-shaking riffs. Even in super distorted, ultra high-gain amp settings, the Nazgul bridge pickup offers exceptional tonal fluency and note-to-note clarity and articulation. The ultimate mixture of modern and classic tones, the Sentient neck pickup has incredible depth, attack, clarity, detail and expression for an amazing sonic response in both heavily distorted and super clean settings. The simplistic control layout consists of a Master Volume control, a Master Tone control and a 3-way selector switch for on-the-fly sound shaping.

Performance-ready black hardware featured on the SLATHX 3-8 includes a Jackson HT8 hardtail string-through-body bridge and a set of Jackson sealed die-cast tuning machines. Case not included.
