Guys,
I've heard people say Jackson Soloists are the 'ultimate shred guitar' but dont the gloss necks pose a bit of a problem for shred sometimes? Doesn't the gloss finish make it harder to move up and down?

Thanks in advance...

My Les Paul has that glossy neck and it has paint. Its only hard when my hands get sweaty. But the Soloist owns. Its a beautiful guitar. If I had the money I would buy that guitar!

Yes, but its not THAT big of a factor...... Dont let that stop you from buying a soloist

Well, I am EXTREMELY picky about the necks I play and for me they must always be a satin finish or a tung oil finish. I would buy a Jackson soloist myself but I am not a fan of standard neck joints (non aanj) either so I would only buy a neck thru soloist but those come with big price tags and I would have to refinish the neck which would definately ruin the value of the guitar.

Gloss does slow you down but with many people (not me) it doesn't really matter. A gloss finish is also stronger against discoloration and sweat so it does make your neck's life longer.
Bleh.

i have several guitars with gloss finishes and it doesn't affect my sliding, it's all about how loosely you grip it.
