A high-performance update on a classic design, the ESP E-II T-B7 offers serious extended-range performance for players who need all the contemporary features for powerful guitar playing in the studio and on stage. Made in ESP’s Tokyo factory by our expert luthiers and designed for pro players, the E-II T-B7 is a seven-string baritone guitar at 27″ scale that includes premier-quality features like neck-thru-body construction, a 24-fret ebony fingerboard, a fast thin U-shaped maple neck, Gotoh locking tuners and an EMG 707/EMG 81-7 pickup set. Available in Snow White and Black Satin finishes. Includes form-fitting hardshell case.
Based off the popular EMG 81, the 81-7H utilizes powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils to produce a detailed tone with incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position of your seven string guitar, this humbucker pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix.
The 707 has been leading the pack of 7-string guitar pickups since its debut in 2001. The EMG 707 eliminated the problem of a muddy low B string that often lacked rich harmonic character and definition. Featuring Alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils, EMG was able to beef up the Low B string tone while maintaining a balanced and articulate upper register. This provided the responsive and tight sound seven string players grew to love. Whether you are ringing out Opeth-style jazz chords or playing palm muted death chugs, these pickups will articulate every note, chord, and harmonic you ask of them.
