Up for sale, a 1990's Grover Jackson Soloist Standard HH electric guitar in excellent condition and in perfect working order. A rare Japanese domestic market model, the Grover Jackson instruments were the precursors to the Jackson Stars line, expertly crafted at the Chu Shin factory. Finished in a Metallic Black gloss, this Jackson features heel-less maple neck through construction with poplar body wings and a 24 fret rosewood board with jumbo fretwire. The guitar has an immediate, clear natural acoustic quality that provides the perfect platform for the dual humbucker pickup complement.

Loaded with an upgraded zebra bobbin DiMarzio Super Distortion in the bridge position and the original Grover Jackson branded J-50N at the neck, the guitar offers a broad tonal palette. Engineered for high gain, the Super Distortion provides a range of roaring tonalities with ample output, midrange push, and a lightly compressed response that is perfect for chunky rhythm playing and fat lead work. The J-50N in contrast is cast in the traditional PAF mold, delivering a dynamic, clear quality that handles gain superbly with Alnico V magnet construction. Weighing 8lbs, we've had this Soloist professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar and dialed in with 9-42 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The maple neck features a shred-worthy slender D shape, fairly flat central to the carve with rounded shoulders and heel-less construction, measuring .740" deep at the 1st fret and .825" at the 12th. The rosewood fretboard shows faint first position finger wear into the rosewood, with pearloid shark fin inlay and stock jumbo fretwire that shows sparingly little wear. The guitar plays cleanly up the 25 1/2" scale with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The locking nut measures 1 5/8" in width, and the bound headstock is fitted with the original Gotoh-made and Jackson-branded black tuners.

The electronics function as intended, with Master Volume and Tone controls with knurled black knobs and a three-way pickup selector switch. The Schaller-made Floyd Rose Licensed vibrato is designed for deep divebombs and broad, expressive wails with ideal tuning stability, and the unit comes complete with a chrome arm. Wear on the gloss Metallic Black metalflake finish is limited to light scuffs and marks mostly relegated to the lower bout, and a couple tiny stray finish chips on the headstock edges. The neck sports a pristine gloss finish.
