Mick Thomson Blackouts® - neck AHB-3n

$115.00 StreetBuy


A signature tuned preamp yields a tighter focus to this active neck pickup for Mick Thomsons violent flurries of staccato shred.


Mick Thomson of Slipknot came to us wanting a set of Blackouts that had increased high-end and a tighter low-end to compliment the complex, crushing riffs he plays in severely dropped tunings. The resulting EMTY neck model has a special custom voicing for crystal clear clean tones with a distinct edginess to them. With the gain cranked up, the top and bottom stay tight and focused while the midrange pushes more aggressively through the mix for smooth sustain and crisp individual note definition.Pair with the EMTY bridge model for a perfectly matched set.Comes with pots, hardware, quick-connector cables, capacitor (active pickups require a special cap value), output jack, battery clip, and wire needed for installation. If your guitar already has active pickups with quick-connector cables installed, you should be able to simply unplug them and plug in your Blackouts.
