Updated for 2018 with a killer new Green Sparkle finish, the LTD SCT-607B is an extraordinary guitar designed by innovative player Stephen Carpenter of Deftones. The SCT-607B starts with a rather traditional shape, but then takes an abrupt turn into one of the most powerful guitars available for contemporary music styles. It's a seven-string guitar, with neck-thru-body construction at 27" baritone scale. That means this instrument can handle extremely low tunings, while still maintaining the string tension needed for expressive playing and excellent tones. It offers a comfortable alder body and a three-piece maple neck, with an unadorned ebony fingerboard. Components on the LTD SCT-607B include a TonePros locking TOM bridge with string-thru-body design for excellent sustain, and a pair of versatile Fishman Fluence® SRC Signature active pickups. Each pickup has multiple voicings; use the push-pull control on the volume knob to select the one you want. On the middle alnico pickup, push down for “Modern Active” tone or pull up for “Modern Passive Attack”. On the bridge ceramic pickup, push down for “Modern Passive Attack” tone or pull up for “Modern Active” voicing. This model utilizes a standard 9V battery.

Is it possible to get an 8-string of this guitar?

Carl N.

Through the custom shop yes but not as a normal production model.

Adam Q.

Looking into buying a used SCT-607B. Any advice on serial numbers, or what to look for to verify authenticity?

Carl N.

Hey Adam, if you need a hand identifying an instrument our customer service team can help with that, though they can't concretely verify an instrument without seeing it firsthand.  They can be reached at

Stanislav K.

What is the best tuning for this guitar on the "out of the box" strings?

Carl N.

Hey Stanislav, this will be tuned standard from the factory, you can see all of our instrument's tunings and gauges from our FAQ section.

Brandon P.

Where can I order a pick guard for the older black model? Warmoth offers a T-style 7 string option but I’m not sure if it will fit. Thanks!

Carl N.

Hey Brandon, best bet would be to use your current pickguard as a template for a luthier to produce a replacement for you.  You could always try the one from Warmoth but their specs could differ from what is used on this instrument.

Joseph  R.

Does anyone know where the signature models are made now? 

Carl N.

Hey Joseph, we currently produce this model in Korea. However, we constantly monitor production standards at our various factories in Asia where we produce LTD models. Should we determine that a certain facility is capable of manufacturing an instrument to ESP's required standard or better, we may decide to shift production, or in some cases share production of a model, wherever that factory may be located.  This instrument should be of excellent quality regardless of where it's made.

Man oh man, I wish this was still available in black

Carl N.

Hey Joseph, we still produce the ESP version in black
