The Jackson Soloist is an electric guitar model by Jackson Guitars officially produced since 1984 (prototypes were available in early 1980s). Jackson was essentially the pioneer of the "Superstrat" design. Overall design started as a superstrat with differences from the Stratocaster such as a neck-thru design and often a Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo bridge, as well as premium woods that made the Soloist a high-end guitar.
As the 1980s brought up a shredding guitarist phenomenon, the Soloist was widely acclaimed in rock and metal music, especially by lead guitarists.
Famous quotes containing the word jackson:
“All who wish to hand down to their children that happy republican system bequeathed to them by their revolutionary fathers, must now take their stand against this consolidating, corrupting money power, and put it down, or their children will become hewers of wood and drawers of water to this aristocratic ragocracy.”
—Andrew Jackson (17671845)
