ESP LTD EC-407 Electric Guitar, 7-string

Adding a 7th string to a classic design, the ESP EC-407 screams and growls with EMG 81-7 and 707 pickups, while its mahogany body delivers serious sustain.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
EMG 81-7 and 707 active pickups Hot humbuckers; beefy low B, punchy midrange
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain

Bringing the power of a 7-string guitar to the popular ESP EC series, the EC-407 offers a full complement of heavy metal tones to satisfy rhythm chuggers and solo shredders alike. The use of mahogany for the body gives an bold sustain to the guitar, while the active EMG Standard Humbuckers deliver that sharp tone to cut through any mix. The thin U contoured neck and single cutaway design allow full access to all seven strings at every point of the fretboard -- essential for the more aggressive shredders out there. With black satin hardware and reliable ESP LTD tuners, the ESP EC-407 is a versatile and stylish 7-string just waiting to melt faces on stage or in the studio.

Another killer LTD 7-string.
The EMGs sound great w/the mahogany. Very easy to get teh br00t4Lz outta this thing. It would probably sound good clean too, if I cared about that sorta thing ; )
The satin finish not only looks cool, but makes the neck faster.I also love the fact that, even though it's an "LP" style guitar, it's got a 25.5" scale length; much better for that low B-string.
Ease of Use
Plug it in and ROCK! The neck feels pretty much identical to my Viper-417 (which is to say KILLER!).
The quality is actually quite high for the price; the only reason for a slightly lower mark here is that the tuners SUCK! They are not Grovers, as the text says, they're ESP tuners with the crappiest gearing ever. The body binding was executed very nicely. Action was great out of the box -- No dead spots, no rough fret edges, nice clean fingerboard. Just had to switch to my brand/guage of strings and I was good to go!
Heck yeah!
Manufacturer Support
Never had to deal with ESP support; I've never had problems with their products.
