Brian 'Head' Welch is known for his massive low-tuned guitar sounds in Korn and this new sig model is deisgned to give the player the flexibility of getting those massive tones with ease. The Fishman Fluence pickups provide incredible clarity in bridge and neck positions no matter how much gain you have cranked up.
With an Evertune bridge you can keep perfect intonation up and down the neck not matter how low it's tuned. For recording and live work, this mean's you don't have to worry about low tuning any more and for riff based music (Metal, hard rock etc.) it works a treat.
Made to go low
Everything about this guitar is to bring out the best in low tunings with the Ebony board to add brightness and the 25.5" scale length. The alnico neck and ceramic bridge pickup keep the low-end tight and 3-piece maple neck means that it'll stay firm and stable with less tension (Having the guitar in a lower tuning means less tension on the neck).
Here's what ESP say about the SH-7 Brian 'Head' Welch Signature Model
The SH-7 EverTune is the LTD Signature Series model of guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, the seven-string innovator and founding member of nu-metal icons Korn. The design of the SH-7ET was a result of Brian working closely with the ESP product development team, and has a body style with horns that are slightly thinned and streamlined for a sleek, menacing look.
Its EverTune constant tension bridge system ensures that it stays in tune (and with excellent intonation all over the neck) in nearly any condition. The SH-7ET makes use of innovative Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups, with the Alnico version in the neck and the Ceramic version in the bridge position.
The pickups provide an amazing range of great tones on their own, and the SH-7ET also provides a push-pull tone pot to access two different voicings of the pickups.
The SH-7ET is a neck-thru-body design with a flamed maple top in See Thru Purple finish over its comfortable, contoured basswood body. It employs a three-piece maple neck at 25.5" scale with an ebony fingerboard, and offers glow-in-the-dark side markers so that the fret position can easily be seen even on dark stages.
