By popular demand, Mick Thomsons signature brand of vicious shred is now available for extended range instruments.
Since its release, extended range players demanded we offer the clarity and aggression of the original EMTYs custom-shifted EQ in a 7 string size. This is the active mount 7-string EMTY Blackouts neck. 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 7-string active mount bridge model for a perfectly matched set.Also available in a passive sized cover that retrofits traditional passive 7-string humbucker routes.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.
