This guitar is a perfect match for me, so just ordered the last one from Thomann, but some info on the weight would be great, and would it ever be possible to get it in a different color, don’t want two guitars on tour in the same color‍♂️

Would I be able to tune the guitar to E flat standard?

I’ve just purchased this guitar and it’s great.

Where can I get a hard case? The official ST-TE GUITAR FORM FIT CASE isn’t available from any dealers here in the UK (or anywhere else). Has it been discontinued? Is there an alternative hard case that will fit?

Carl N.

Still a current case, and international ESP dealer or distributor can special order one of these items for you if they are not in stock.


I wish this was available, same burst, same ET bridge setup but for a 7 string. I’d buy it so fast. Tele’s need color in 7 string models, leave the satin blacks for the eclipses. Or at least make the 417 have a white option.

Carl N.

thanks for the suggestions

Is there a particular reason that this guitar ships with the XL120 strings instead of the typical XL110?  I noticed the same thing on the M-1000 Purple Natural Burst, and the only thing the same between the 2 were the EMG 66TW/57TW pickups.  I purchased this server Monday night, so can't wait for it to arrive next week.  Was asking about the difference an string gauge for my own edification. \m/

Carl N.

Different bridge models come equipped with different gauge strings, these can be viewed on the individual model's specifications or via our FAQ section

Thanks Carl, that was a big help. \m/
