Korn Hits The Road

Korn, the iconic band who helped launch the entire nu metal genre in the 1990s, is hitting the road right now on a massive tour that will take them through Europe, South America, and North America. They’ll be spending nearly six months on the road with barely a break in between shows, so it’s a good thing that founding member Brian “Head” Welch will have his recently-introduced LTD Signature Series guitar, the SH-7 EverTune, with him to rock hard from Albuquerque to Zurich and everywhere in between.

Brian "Head" Welch LTD Signature Series SH-7 EverTune

The SH-7 EverTune is a 7-string guitar that's the result of Brian working closely with the ESP product development team, and has a body style with horns that are slightly thinned and streamlined for a sleek, menacing look. Its EverTune constant tension bridge system ensures that it stays in tune (and with excellent intonation all over the neck) in nearly any condition. The SH-7ET makes use of innovative Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups, with the Alnico version in the neck and the Ceramic version in the bridge position. The pickups provide an amazing range of great tones on their own, and the SH-7ET also provides a push-pull tone pot to access two different voicings of the pickups. The SH-7ET is a neck-thru-body design with a flamed maple top in See Thru Purple finish over its comfortable, contoured basswood body. It employs a three-piece maple neck at 25.5" scale with an ebony fingerboard, and offers glow-in-the-dark side markers so that the fret position can easily be seen even on dark stages.
