If recent online developments are to be believed, Slipknot’s Mick Thomson has left both Jackson and Seymour Duncan in a move that sees him switch to the ranks of ESP and Fishman.

Thomson – who, alongside Slipknot bandmate Jim Root, was a Fender brands artist with two signature guitars to his name – seems to have switched guitar and pickup providers in recent months, with speculation arising after he was spotted playing a handful of ESPs during Slipknot’s recent shows.
