Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this beautiful 7-string shredder from ESP's USA factory here in California. The M-7 is a powerhouse and, to give it a sound that matches, we had ESP equip this with some hot EMG active pickups for a thoroughly rock-ready tone. This baritone sports an extended 27" scale length so you can drop-tune to your heart's content while still having good tension on the strings and a snappy response to the feel.

The build quality is excellent. The neck is thin and even if you're new to extended range guitars, it shouldn't take long to get used to. It's definitely designed, from top to bottom, to be a hard-rockin' shredder's axe. The action right out of the box is low and the playability is super easy with these. The bridge pickup has a searing tone and can handle any amount of gain or saturation that you can throw at it. The neck is also aggressive but also has some nice warmth for beautiful melodic solos.

Made by some of ESP's best luthiers, the guitars they're cranking out in their North Hollywood factory are nothing short of thoroughly impressive.
