What we say:

At A Glance

The Jackson X Series SLAT8 is an impressive 8 string guitar with a lot of great features for the money. The multi scale gives the player an extremely practical and comfortable solution to many of the problems that can come with adding extra strings. The versatile Jackson Blade humbuckers can take all the heavy riffs but also clean up beautifully making this great for modern styles that require a variety of tones. A compound radius with 24 jumbo frets makes playing almost effortless. The Black Burst is subtle but adds just enough character to set this guitar apart from the rest.

Features We Love:

Jackson Blade Humbuckers

These Jackson 8 string Blade humbuckers provide a high output but with plenty of flexibility. They can easily move from sparkling cleans to growling distortion but sound pure regardless of what tone you choose.

Multi Scale

The scale of 26" - 28" takes into account the longer scale length needed when using an extra lower string. Due to the gradual change it still feels familiar to play and follows the natural movement of your hand while also giving correct string tension to let you get on with your playing.

Compound Radius

The compound radius gives the best of both worlds. Moving from 12" to 16", it is comfortable and natural feeling for chords lower down the neck. As you work your way further up the neck, you can feel how effortless it is for playing lightning fast solos with big bends due to the change in radius.

Pros:

  • A well built and reliable 8 string
  • A unique finish
  • Jackson X Series level of quality
