This is the seven string version of the six string guitar he uses. It's almost exactly the same, only this has an EMG 707 and has a solid black paint job. The guitar has the following specs:

Mahogany body with a carved top
Mahogany neck-thru construction neck
Ebony fretboard with 24 jumbo frets
String-thru-body bridge
EMG 707 pickup
One volume knob
Solid black paintjob

UTILIZATION

This is very similar to his six string in that it's a very no frills guitar. You have the bare necessities needed to make a high gain sound. I found this one to be put together better than the six string version at the shop for whatever reason. It didn't have the nut issues that the other one had, and it didn't have the sharp edges. This could simply be due to it having more stable wood than the other or just be a fluke. I'm not exactly sure. The bridge on this is pretty nice for overall resonance transfer, but I was never a fan of the angle that these bridges create. The same goes for pretty much every TOM style bridge out there. I've been a floyd player for almost all my life, so I prefer a straighter style string angle.

SOUNDS

The guitar is a bit limiting, and that's its biggest killer for me. It's either high gain or nothing. The EMG 707 works great for what it sets out to do. It gives you this super thick and fat sounding low B that sounds super crushing. It's great for fast riffing, and it stays tight under extreme gain. That's one of the beauties of EMG pickups. However, the clean tones were really bad. I never liked EMG clean tones. They always sound very sterile and lack that nice bloom that normal pickups have. The fact that it had no neck pickup was also a big deal breaker for me as I love neck pickups for lead tones.

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar is great for those wanting a nice, solid one humbucker seven string guitar. However, the lack of a neck pickup was just too much of a deal breaker for me to consider buying this guitar. If you never use the neck pickup and want a seven string guitar, this could be worth checking out.
