ESP LTD SC337 Stephen Carpenter 7 String Guitar in Black

The 7-string signature guitar for Deftones Axeman Stephen Carpenter

Written by

Jed Van Wyngaardt

The ESP LTD SC-337 is a guitar that offers the brutal tones you'd expect from a Deftones signature axe. It's got 2 active pickups in the bridge and middle position - because who even uses the neck pickup anyway with a string-through body construction and fixed bridge for tuning stability.

Made for going low

This guitar has been designed with drop-tunings and fat chugged riffs in mind. It has 7-strings with a Low-B that you could always tune down for extra fatness and sludge but with a very comfortable-feeling thin U-shaped neck. 

The large frets make it easy to bend when you do decide to go higher on the neck and the flexibility of having the extra strings means that the change from chug to shred will be seamless.
