Crafted one at a time at the ESP Custom Shop by our world-class luthiers, the ESP STEF-T7B is an extraordinary guitar designed by innovative player Stephen Carpenter of Deftones. The STEF-T7B 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 that offers side-dot position markers. Components on the STEF-T7B are first class, with a graphite nut, Sperzel locking tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge and string-thru-body design for excellent sustain, and a set of Stef's own Fishman Fluence® SRC Signature pickups. Available in Black finish. Includes high-quality hardshell case and Certificate of Authentity from ESP. Also available in a more affordable LTD version with the SCT-607B.

Hi, I really like that guitar but I‘m Not a big fan of that pickup configuration. Is the cavity under the pickguard empty, so I can move the pickup nearer towards the neck without routing? Otherwise I would just remove the pickup and replace the pickguard for a single Humbucker Look.

Thanks guys

Hi Michael, This is the configuration that Stef uses. One option is to lower the middle pickup so it's out of the way. You would have to route under the pickguard to move the pickup to neck position.
