Features include an oil-finished maple neck, compound radius ebony fingerboard (12 to 16-inch) with 24 jumbo frets and "High Boltage" lightning bolt inlays designed by Shepard Fairey, Ivoroid neck and headstock binding, Seymour Duncan Scott Ian El Diablo bridge pickup and Seymour Duncan '59 neck pickup (two-pickup model only), original Floyd Rose bridge (two-pickup model only) or TonePros Tunamatic bridge (single-pickup model only), black hardware, Schaller strap locks and G&G case.

The single-pickup Scott Ian T-1000 Soloist 1H/ST will be priced at £2,218, while the double-pickup 2H/FR will cost £2,422.
