Here's what ESP has to say...
You asked; we delivered. With the popularity of guitars with more than the standard six strings on the rise (due in part to new musical movements like the Djent scene), we have a bunch of new guitars that fit your many-stringed needs!
In the seven-string category, the new EC-407, EX-307, and V-307 takes three of our most popular body shapes and offers them in powerful yet affordable 7-string versions. The new EC-407 comes in BLKS (Black Satin) and SWS (Snow White Satin) finishes, and offers a mahogany body with maple top. The EX-407 and V-307 are being offered in BLKS (Black Satin), and also include pro features such as mahogany bodies, maple necks, and rosewood fingerboards. All three models use a combination of EMG 81-7 and EMG 707 pickups.
If seven strings aren't enough, it's time to check out the new H-308,H-338 and H-208 models.
Based on our H-style body shape, the H-308 delivers high performance via a set-thru maple neck, mahogany body, and an EMG 808 active pickup set. Part of our new 330 Series, the H-338 is a similar guitar, but has a bolt-on neck and includes our new ESP ALH-208 active pickups. Both models come in BLKS (Black Satin) finishes. Each of the new 7- and 8- string models with satin finishes also feature black satin hardware. The H-208 is a very affordable 8-string guitar in a BLK (Gloss Black) finish, with a basswood body, chrome hardware and passive ESP LH-308 pickups. Pricing and Availability:
