The concept of creating a sleek and deadly guitar combining a traditional double-cutaway body style and scale length with shark-like high performance was ingrained into Jackson’s DNA at birth in the early 1980s. The resulting instrument, the Soloist, debuted in 1984.
With an addictive compound-radius fingerboard and a new pitch on its through-body neck, the highly versatile Soloist was built to shred. With those features and such a sleekly alluring look, it’s easy to understand why the Soloist has earned so much acclaim. It remains one of the most popular and oft-imitated Jackson models ever.
Tradition reborn. Custom Select Series instruments are Jackson’s top-line best, recalling the time-honored traditions of the ’80s-era Jackson Custom Shop. Nowhere else will you find U.S.-built production-model shred machines of such stellar design, peerless performance and superior craftsmanship, brought to life by the best builders in the business.
Quartersawn Maple Necks and Ebony Fingerboards
From time-honored neck-through models such as the Soloist and Rhoads to the bolt-on classic DK1, Jackson USA Select guitars feature ultra-stable quartersawn maple necks and the finest ebony fingerboards with mother-of-pearl and real abalone inlays.
Made with the best components
Jackson Custom Select guitars feature the finest components available. From top to bottom—from the Floyd Rose® tremolo system to the premium tuners and every part in between—every single element of a Jackson Custom Select guitar is nothing less than the best. The best pickups. The best hardware. The best inlay work, binding and bevels. The best finishes and graphics, from the elegant to the insane. All your call, and all to create your ultimate Jackson guitar.
Compound Radius Fingerboard
Custom Select models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal articulation and bending nearer the heel.
Class and Elegance
From basic elegance to incomparable flamboyance, Jackson's Custom Select series delivers great Jackson style. Colors range from sinister matte black to vibrant solids. Hand-painted graphics range from the understated to the outlandish, or choose one with a beautifully figured top. Necks with oiled finishes and classic inlay work. And much more. In body styles both classic and brand-new, the Custom Select series is the U.S.-made top of the Jackson line, sought by players worldwide.
