Whether with his solo efforts, his time with prog-metal band Nevermore and now Swedish powerhouse Arch Enemy, or guest appearances on countless projects with the metal elite, Jeff Loomis is known as one of the most respected technical guitarists in the game.
Jackson® proudly collaborated with Loomis on a new addition to his signature lineup in the form of the Pro Series Signature Jeff Loomis Soloist™ SL7.
With an extended sonic palette that allows for extended expression all along the fretboard, this 7-string guitar features a 26.5” scale length, resonant basswood body with sandblasted ash top and through-body three-piece maple neck with graphite reinforcement for rock-solid stability and enhanced sustain. Designed for highly technical, lightspeed playing, the 12”-16” compound radius bound ebony fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays. For touring musicians, Luminlay® side dots provide fret guidance even on the darkest of stages, while a conveniently-placed heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes neck relief tweaks a breeze.
A pair of active Seymour Duncan® Jeff Loomis Signature Blackouts® humbucking pickups creates a versatile voice with dynamic range, articulation and note attack. The neck pickup delivers smooth, glassy leads, while the bridge pickup sinks its teeth into more aggressive tones and sustain while maintaining its legato.
Three-way toggle switching allows you to explore different pickup combinations, while a single volume control allows you to dial up the intensity on a whim. Dive and soar expressively with the Floyd Rose® 1500 Series double-locking tremolo system, recessed for pick hand comfort, laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning.
Keeping with his tradition of developing guitars with menacing metal style, the Pro Series Signature Jeff Loomis Soloist SL7 is cloaked in Satin Black with a matching Jackson pointed 7-in-line headstock and black hardware.

26.5" Scale Length
The greater spacing of harmonics on strings that span a longer 26.5” scale give an impression of greater chime and shimmer, and allows for more articulate notes on the lower strings. The longer scale length also enhances tuning stability, and is an ideal match for dropped tunings.
Luminlay® Side Dots
Luminlay® side dots are superior-quality fluorescent inlays engineered to emit a soft, yet potent glow to help guide the guitarist along the fretboard on even the darkest of stages.
