OVERVIEW

Crushing 7-string low end inspired by Whitechapel's Alex Wade.

The ESP LTD AW-7 Alex Wade Signature electric guitar features neck-thru-body construction, a mahogany body with a flamed maple top, and a 25.5" scale maple neck with an ebony fretboard. The thin U-shaped neck contour and 24 extra jumbo frets make the AW-7 an extremely playable instrument. Armed with a vicious pair of humbucking pickups-a DiMarzio D-Activator in the bridge and neck positions-this guitar can handle plenty of gain and boasts unmatched heavy metal roar. High-end appointments include a fixed bridge with thru-body strining, ESP locking tuning machines, all-black hardware and comes in a Wade-inspired Blood Red Sunburst finish.

    Comments about ESP Alex Wade 7-String Electric Guitar:

    To start, the pickups in this guitar sound great, and it looks amazing. It has a great feeling neck as well. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because when I first got it my low string kept breaking (apparently do to a "burl" in the bridge) but, It was an easy fix done by a local tech. Now it's perfect as far as I'm concerned.

        Comments about ESP Alex Wade 7-String Electric Guitar:

        Ive always been an ibanez man when it comes to 7's but when i saw this guitar i had to get it. The neck has such a great feel and the heel is very comfortable when playing higher up, and the ebony fretboard is gorgeous and all frets are smooth with no sharp edges and completely level. I had to do a basic setup because the action was a little high but i think it was from being shipped in the cold. But now its perfect. The finish is such a deep red it has to be seen in person to truly justify it. I was suprised at the wide range of tones i could get from the pickups, most of my guitars have active but im gonna leave these in. The only thing that could throw some people off is no fret markers but it doesnt bother me. I chose this over an ibanez premium 7 and i am glad i did.

          Comments about ESP Alex Wade 7-String Electric Guitar:

          Found this instore at Guitar Center. Im a total Whitechapel fan so i HAD to play it. Played it through a couple tube combo amps and each and every one of them made this guitar sound incredible. I even put in the Chapel amp eq settings. Bass 10, Mid 4, Treble 7ish. Killer beyond words. I always loved 7 strings but this by far is my favorite. Im really digging the Dimarzios in them.
