USA Soloist? Because they have not gotten cheaper price wise :scratch:

I do like the late 80's early 90's better...but i'm sure that just because that was my era. They do feel better to me though. :shrug:

Back before fender purchased Jackson the soloist where all pretty consistent in build quality and tone, with the occasional dead sounding one. I remember when Fender first took them over people did not like what they were putting out, but that might have changed by now as they have gotten very consistent with the fender line, even the MIM line.

Almost everyone here will say 80/90's and for good reason. SL_'s from that era slay. My personal favorites are SLSMG's, and Soloist XL's.

I had the quicksilver SL2 pro and it was pretty good. Not as fancy as the old ones, as the old ones were MIJ or USA, and the new ones are Indonesian. Soloist XL's are the predecessor to SL1's, or just the Jap version, whichever it may be. But find a soloist XL, and you'll be happy as fuck.

I really wish they'd go back to the short-horn pre-1992 Dinky body style instead of the "bolt-on Soloist" look they've got going now. It was a really great look that better bridged the traditional Strat and the modern Superstrat shapes.
