Watch as Mick Thomson Runs through the Features on his New Signature Models
February 13, 2018
Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson caught up with our Jackson crew to talk about his ferocious new USA and Pro Series Signature Soloist™ models. The savage shredder knows what he likes in his guitars and was extremely hands-on with the development process, making sure that every detail lived up to his expectations.
With more than a year spent on R&D, Thomson made sure that his new signature axes could accommodate the heavy-duty playing that has become synonymous with his body of work, regardless of which model you pick up.
For instance, both the USA Signature Mick Thomson Soloist™ and the Pro Series Signature Mick Thomson Soloist™ SL2 feature a proprietary Jackson MTB HT6 hardtail bridge that has both the fine-tuning benefits of a Floyd Rose® while retaining the feel of a hardtail. Also included are Thomson’s ear-crushing signature Seymour Duncan® Blackouts AHB-3S pickups, inlay block side dots for easy fret reference on dark stages, single volume control, three-way blade switch, recessed barrel jack and sealed die-cast tuners.
The USA Signature Soloist™ includes a three-piece maple neck-through-body construction with mahogany body wings, while the Pro Series version has a full mahogany body and one-piece maple neck-through-body design.
