I've ordered this guitar through Zzounds. Currently they are on back order. Any idea when these beauties will be shipping to America?
Probably after the quarantine
Is the truss rod double action or single action?
Hi Claus, Our truss rod is double action so it will adjust in 2 directions.
Are the frets Nikkel/Silver or stainless steel?
Hi Claus, Yes they are nickel silver. That is what we use for everything unless noted otherwise.
I wish you guys had a larger variety of options for this model. Would buy one with pleasure if it featured an Evertune instead!
Thanks for the insight!
Just bought this guitar, my first new guitar this century! I love my old guitars a lot but I've been hankering after a 7 string for a while but a Benedetto is simply out of my price range so had been looking at solid body alternatives and this seemed about the best going. Well it looks beautiful, I mean REALLY beautiful and feels surprisingly comfortable in that it isn't too heavy in the body and is not head heavy which could be an issue with a 7 string. The sound is fine, in that it has pretty clear tones for an active pick-up design. The neck PU is the one I'll probably be using most as it sounded right within the first minute of playing. I'm still getting used to the Floyd Rose (very wobbly when compared to a 'Fender Plus/Hipshot' trem which I'm used to) so I see it as a slight challenge to master rather than a thing to change. I do get the 'Metal' thing that seems to be the main purpose for a lot of 7 string guitar but these days I'm foremost a Jazz player and YES, this guitar can certainly produce some lovely clean music. Well done, you fabulous ESP people.
Thanks for the kind words Gordon! Glad you're enjoying it!
