MH-17

BLACK

$199.00

The LTD 10 Series is designed for beginners and players on a tight budget who still want a solid instrument for the money. The MH-17 includes both an excellent starter guitar with seven strings, and a gig bag so you’ll be able to take your instrument to lessons, or out to your friends’ homes for fun jams. Seven-string guitars are great for modern music styles like metal and progressive rock, where you may want to go lower than the standard range of pitches offered by six-string guitars. The MH-17 has a smooth, comfortable, thin U-shaped maple neck that will make it easier to get around to chords and scales all over the fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets. It has a well-balanced and contoured basswood body that's good for playing while seated or standing. When you're ready to rock, the MH-17's ESP Designed pickups are great for any genre of music you like to play. Available in Black finish.

I'm just wondering how balanced this guitar is when standing and playing?

Carl N.

Hey Herra, it balances very well.

Max M.

Is there or can there be a left handed version

Hi Max,

Sorry we do not offer this model in LH version currently.

This in a 27 inch scale would be dope AF. I have a first run m17 and my only gripe is the scale length being too short. Amazing guitar for the price at the time. But yeah. This in a 27 inch scale again would be dope AF like some of these folks are saying about the more expensive MH417. I wouldn't need a custom guitar if y'all offered it that way at the m17 retail price. Just saying it could be a "gateway drug" for new players in the extended range market.

Hi Grinder, Thanks for that suggestion.

I had put down music for a while and recently decided to pick it back up.  I had been a 7 string player for years but when i stopped playing finding a used 7 at this price point was unheard of.  So when i saw this one for $200 I figured it was garbage.  But after playing it once i took it straight to the counter and bought it.  Yes the pick ups are not any thing to write home about but if you are a bed room player using a modeling amp or even going strait in a computer for recording they are fine. I only really found a problem with pluging it into a friends loud tube amp, Krank rev to be esact. And honestly the noise im sure could have been fixed via noise gate.  I do plan on swiching them out but thats not on the "have to do list" Bottom line if you are on a budget and want a 7 this is a killer guitar.

Hi Velociblue , Thanks for sharing your comments. Glad to hear this model worked out well for you and thanks for recommending it to other users!

Could we ever see an 8-string MH on the cheaper side such as this?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Cooper, it's possible but not anything we have planned currently.
