I just got back from work and I got the email about it, checked out the specs, pics etc
It's on the new jackson website.

What do you guys think about it?
I'll be keen to test it when the shipment arrives at work

Jackson SLS3

Released in fall 2008, the SLS3 also marks the appearance of a brand-new Jackson finish, Swirl Green. Further, the SLS3 complements its predecessor, the SLSMG, by offering dual Seymour Duncan® Zebra ’59 passive pickups and shark-eye fingerboard inlays.

The SLS3 is also available in three other classic Jackson finishes—Black, Satin Black and Snow White. In addition to the new Swirl Green finish available for this guitar, Jackson fans can look for new colors on all import model guitars in late 2008.


The site also includes the ENTIRE charvel and jackson catalogue books to read.

Anyway just thought some jackson fans would wanna read up

Thats pretty sick.
i really like the 3 a side headstock, jackson needs more guitars with it

yeah is sure took them a while to update the site but it's looking noice =]
the SLS3 looks pretty sweet, it kinda makes me think of the older style Jackson and Charvel's
and I'm really liking the headstock, I saw it on a KV2T and it looked stunning.

and it looks nice, just I'm not the biggest fans of the inlays

EDIT and the new SL2h mahq soloist is the most beutiful thing I've ever seen :O

do what i did and go to a BFMV concert and yell how much they suck every time they finish a song and enjoy the freedom because everyone in NZ who likes them are emo pussies that won't do anything except try and kick you in the head.

Sweet, they previewed the SLS3 on JC Forum awhile back, but this is cool to see it is going to be an import, AND the new site is up. we MIGHT *GASP* actually see a new catalog!
#15
Don't give two craps of the name on the guitar as long as it plays good and the guy who's name is on it is not a murderer/rapist, racist, or terrorist...

Wow. You're both lame as hell. Ok. He has a sig. So what? That doesn't mean that Jackson are now going to decline. I don't like Kerry King or Slayer, does that mean I'm not going to use or buy anything from B.C. Rich or ESP? No. Also, you'd be stupid as hell to go to a concert, WHICH WOULD BE SUPPORTING THEM, and telling them they suck. Because guess what? You just kissed their ass.

Anyways...Back on topic...I think it looks sick as hell. I love the inlays they're using for it.

Good point, my apologies on the comment.
I still dislike the band, though.
Played the sig guitar and it wasn't too special but that's opinion.

The shipment of Jackson arrives on Wednesday.
Should be great.
Only a couple of USA models though

What i like about the SLS3:
- Ebony fretboard
- no trem
- mahogany body
- seXXXy as hell
- it says 'Jackson' on the headstock

What i dont like about the SLS3:
- Headstock
- '59 in the bridge
- '59 + mahogany = mud when you use overdrive/distortion, and there is a '59 in the bridge, so thats not a good combination.
- no OFR version available (SL3 has one, but that model has a rosewood fretboard)
- ugly inlays

agreed, especially on the headstock point, i really dont like it.

I actually dont mind the inlays though, or the fact you cant get an OFR version

if they had one with an OFR and the classic jackson Rhoads styled pointed headstock, i'd plan on that as my next axe. BEAUTIFUL!

You know whats weird about the new site?

They use the RR24 as 'avatar' for their Pro series, but its not there. It's with the MG series.
I always thought the RR24 was a Pro series guitar?

The SLS body can't have a Floyd Rose because the routing for the Floyd Rose is too deep for the body itself, plus a lot of wood will have to be taken out of the guitar which already doesnt have that much wood to begin with.
