STEPHEN CARPENTER PICKUP SET
Stephen Carpenter has never been afraid to push the limits of what a guitar is meant to sound like. With an unmistakable style, he has turned to ESP since the 90’s to build guitars that meet his every need. Stephen’s guitars were built to handle the heaviest of breakdowns, the richest of clean tones, and everything in between.


The SC-607B Stephen Carpenter signature guitar has a lot of the same great properties as its predecessor. For instance, ESP LTD and the Deftones guitarist have once again decided to go with a maple through-body neck with a rosewood fingerboard and alder wings. This allows for a warm sound with lots of sustain and rich lows, prominent mids and a slight bite in the trebles. To ensure this 7-string solid-body guitar stays in tune, no matter how low you go, the ESP LTD SC-607 Black was designed as a baritone guitar with a 27″ scale length.

The SC-607B guitar features two active Fishman Fluence Stephen Carpenter Signature Series humbuckers. “My signature pickup set has the full range of tones that you’re looking for. Voice 1 is similar to the tone of the original Modern Humbucker Fluence set. And for the second voice, I like a bit more heat, some hot stuff on it… more edge, so that’s in there too.”

“I was never the super-critical guy. I’m not much for specs, but I like clean, full sounding pickups. We put Fluence in and I jammed on them for 45 minutes and thought… ‘these things are freaking great…’ I didn’t want to stop playing.”
