Pro Series Signature Mick Thomson Soloist™ SL2, Ebony Fingerboard, Gloss Black

$899.99 MSRP

Slipknot lead guitarist Mick Thomson is one of metal’s most successful and revered players. His game changing, take-no-prisoners approach to metal guitar has influenced countless musicians worldwide, while his black hole-heavy de-tuned guitar sound has been an integral part of Slipknot for more than two decades.

Designed to withstand his acclaimed aggressive technique and tone, the Pro Series Signature Mick Thomson Soloist™ SL2 is a sinister axe loaded with high-quality features including a bound mahogany body coupled with a graphite reinforced through-body one-piece maple neck—carved to a custom super-thin profile for maximum comfort and high-speed playability, and a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 24 frets and block side dots.

This signature Soloist is powered by a pair of Mick Thomson signature Seymour Duncan® Blackouts to complement the complex, crushing riffs Thomson plays in dropped tunings. The EMTY bridge pickup offers the energy and output of the original Blackouts but with Thomson’s custom voicing to emphasize the percussive chunk of palm-muted notes. Designed for crystal clear clean tones, the EMTY neck pickup can also produce more aggressive mids and increased sustain for high-speed solos and ominous melodic interludes when you crank up the gain.

Other features include a Jackson MTB HT6 hardtail bridge and locking nut for laser-accurate intonation and ultra-stable tuning, a single volume control, three-way blade switch and a recessed barrel jack.

Beastly sounding with classic style, Thomson’s signature Pro SL2 is available in either Gloss Black with white binding or in Arctic White with black binding, along with a matching reverse pointed 6-in-line headstock and black hardware.

Dual Mick Thomson Signature Seymour Duncan® Blackouts AHB-3S Pickups

Customized to fit Thomson’s slaughtering riffs in dropped tunings, this signature Blackouts set is designed to handle extremes in tone. The bridge accentuates deep, chunky palm-muted styles, while the neck pickup cleans up extremely well for crystal clear tones that get more aggressive with increased gain.
