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.”
