ESP USA M-7 Hardtail Guitar, Solid Gold


ESP USA M-7 Hardtail Guitar, Solid Gold


Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this ESP USA M-7 guitar finished in a solid gold color. Much like its 6-stringed M-series brethren, this one is a real shredder. The added 7th string is nice and tight with great clarity and punch.

This is an excellent way to get some of the best craftsmanship ESP has to offer in an American-made guitar that is absolutely shred-ready in every way. The USA ESP's are top notch and you can feel it right away when you pick this bad boy up. The fretwork is silky smooth, the action is freakishly low, and all the notes ring out and sing with seemingly infinit sustain.

This guitar comes equipped with a versatile set of Duncan Custom and Jazz pickups. They can handle clean sound as well as striving with some gain and distortion. They are articulate and defined while still having the ability to give you a taste of vintage sweetness, too.

This is a guitar that's built to rock. It is primed and ready to let loose!
