Get Down and Dirty With This Stephen Carpenter Signature Axe

You don't have to shoulder an eight-string electric guitar to get to those earth-rumbling lower tones; the 7-string ESP LTD SCT-607B Stephen Carpenter baritone electric guitar delivers low frequencies with force and might. Stephen Carpenter's deep distorted sound is heard all over the Deftones' discography, and this seven-string baritone axe brings the heavy with its alder body and maple neck in neck-thru body construction. The SCT-607B's pair of EMG 81-7 active humbuckers break up your playing in a nice, full distortion that doesn't get muddy in the lower register, and your ebony fingerboard of 24 XJ frets plays like butter over a comfortable thin U contour neck shape. Get extra low with this heavy baritone electric guitar.

Alder Body and Maple Neck

Alder bodies have a strong, full-bodied sound that balances well. Alder is great for a baritone guitar because it lifts your mids and lows nicely, but not in an overbearing fashion. Your maple neck adds a nice and tight character to your sound -- bringing a welcoming brightness in contrast to the darkness of your alder body. It adds up to a classic tonewood pairing for this Stephen Carpenter signature 7-string.

Thin U Neck Contour and Through-body Construction

You'll navigate the SCT-607B's extensive 27" scale neck with ease and comfort via its thin U contoured neck shape. Having the extra string widens your neck a little bit, but this thin cut means your hand won't have to stretch too far to reach that seventh string. Thru-body construction means your strings will have a nice transfer of sound over to your body with a more present resonation, in longer sustain, and with reliable intonation. Your axe will also have a solid "one-piece" feel to it when you play.

Pair of EMG 81-7 Active Humbuckers

These two baddies are a great pair for an axe that goes as low as your SCT-607B does. You get a full angry tone that breaks up nicely and evenly in well-defined manner, no matter how low you go. EMG humbuckers are housed in an epoxy casing that keeps out dirt and dust, and the enclosed preamps will boost your signal well with no unwanted hum or buzz. Use your tone and volume knobs and three-way pickup selector switch to play around with different tones and combinations.

Durable and Secure TonePros Tune-o-matic Bridge

Baritone guitars have longer scale lengths to them, which means your strings stretch longer and tighter. You won't have to worry about staying in tune because of this baby's reliable TonePros Tune-o-matic bridge and LTD locking tuners. You'll be able to play extensively -- pushing your low end and bending your strings to screeching highs -- without the worry of your guitar losing its intonation.

Product Description

If you want a huge bottom end, mega distortion, and superior sustain, the ESP LTD SCT-607B Stephen Carpenter Baritone Electric Guitar is the one for you. Stephen Carpenter, guitarist of the Deftones, teamed up with ESP to create this beauty.

This 7-string baritone is sure to be your go-to guitar. The ESP LTD SCT-607B boasts neck-thru construction, a 27-inch baritone scale, and a classic Tele-style body with a black finish and white pickguard. The SCT-607B is loaded with EMG 81-7 bridge and middle active pickups.

EMG 81-7 active pickups give you a huge range -- from a full, cranked-out bottom to screaming high notes on the upper register. The ESP LTD SCT-607B's string-thru body and TonePros locking bridge give the thru-body maple neck with ebony fretboard great sustain and resonance.

5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beautiful guitar with great tone and punch "
Overall: I have owned many guitars over my tenure of playing and this is by far my favorite. It features high end components and gorgeous looks for a great price. Locking tuners, tone pros bridge, EMGs, and a fast neck. This thing pumps out some punishing lows and good cleans which I credit to the hefty alder body. You can not beat the sound and looks for the price, I have received more compliments on this guitar at shows then I have with any other instrument. I gave it a slight knock in ease of use due to the weight but what you lose in shoulder pain you gain in fat tone so it is really a non issue. I have had this guitar for about a year now toting it from town to town with no issues so I have not needed to contact manufacturer support. Abrahams tank for the metal masses buy with confidence.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Finally a 7 string I am happy with"
Sound: The EMG 81-7s are really brutal, but when it comes time to clean things up the tone is crisp and all there. The alder body really helps this guitar ring out chords and notes forever. Feature: The pickup configuration is my favorite of all the features. At first, I had problems with the middle pickup getting in the way but after about an hour of playing I adapted to it. I really enjoy the look of the middle/bridge configuration a lot as well, but the sound that comes from both pickups being on when playing cleans was everything I have been looking for. Ease of Use: Going from a 6 to a 7 string was very easy. I didn't have to mess with anything, just plug and play. Quality: The quality of this guitar is absolutely amazing. I plugged it in right out of the box and did not need to do anything to it. It came set up perfectly and the intonation was spot on, never had it go out of tune. Value: For $1000 its everything i could have asked for Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with it! The Wow Factor: When I first saw this guitar I knew I had to have it and when it came in the mail and I played it for a couple days, it was like Stephen Carpenter made this guitar just for me. It's perfect in every way and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a solid 7 string. Overall: WOW

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds has proven to me that they have the best customer service and support of any online music store. The first amplifier I received was having some issues. Obviously not zZounds' fault. Could have been faulty from the manufacturer or damaged in shipping. Using the expedited return option I had the replacement amp sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after calling them about it. Just in time for a block of studio time I had set up. zZounds seriously came to the rescue and saved the day on this one." - customer on October 28, 2014
