It's no secret that Jackson electric guitars are a favorite amongst some of the world's tops shredders. Ex-Megadeth man Marty Friedman, Trivium's Corey Beaulieu, Slipknot's Mick Thomson, Anthrax's Scott Ian – the list goes on. These players look to the company for superior build quality and top-tier playability every time.

If you're a metal guitarist yourself who's looking for a well-rounded shred machine, look no further than the Jackson X Series Soloist SL5X FSR, which Guitar Center is now offering at $549.99 – down from $699.99 – for a limited time only. That's a pretty noteworthy saving of $150 or just over 20 percent.

Its solid poplar wood body offers a resonant, meaty tone – perfect for executing those hell-raising riffs – while its one-piece maple neck and 24-fret, compound-radius laurel fingerboard assure total comfort and maximum playability.

The X Series Soloist SL5X FSR features a Seymour Duncan-designed HSH pickup configuration – specifically a HR-103N in the neck position, HR-101 Hot Rails in the middle, and a HB-103B in the bridge. This setup guarantees a wealth of sweet tones, from destructive leads to silky cleans. Controls include master volume and tone knobs and a five-way selector switch.

Other features include Sharkfin inlays, a Floyd Rose bridge – essential for divebombs – a 25.5" scale length and black hardware. Choose the finish that best matches you, too, with Blue Burst and Purple Burst options available.
