Review: Jackson Guitars Pro Series Soloist SL7 HT

(Image credit: Jackson Guitars)

Currently offering 32 different seven-string guitar models, Jackson has positioned itself as a leading contender in the seven-string market. All of Jackson’s seven-string models are solidbody guitars with metal-and-shred-oriented built-for-speed designs, so if that’s your specialty as well and you’re looking for a seven-string, chances are good that Jackson has exactly the model you need. For players who prefer a hardtail bridge, traditional (i.e. non-slanted or multiscale) fretboard, passive pickups and a non-extended scale length, Jackson’s Pro Series Soloist SL7 HT is a great choice. Priced right in the middle of Jackson’s seven-string range, it offers a great balance of value and pro features.
