    Ok so this is my first 7 and holy hell it is brutal!!

    Features: master tone and individual volume. 3 way toggle EMG 81-7 (b) and 707 (n) love the combo thought about switching the bridge but gonna leave it for now. Tom bridge and Esp tuners. Mahogany body with maple top. 5 stars simple and effective

    Sound: sound is absolutely killer. Very crisp cleans in all positions especially at middle and neck pos. the low end this thing possesses is pretty damn good, super tight and guttural when loaded with gain. 4 stars

    Action/finish: this guitar needed very little set up. Intonation was almost spot on and action is low and easy considering the x jumbo frets. The finish is sexy to say the least with the Snow White satin. The binding is attractive as well. The guitar feels good, its got weight which I love. 5 stars

    I absolutely love white les pauls and 7 string guitars, this is both in one. I have always wanted one of these, looks fantastic and most certainly feels also. Maybe someday I'll get one too.

    I actually got rid of mine fairly quickly. The Les Paul heel just didn't work for me on a 7 string, as anything above the 15th fret on the lower three strings was pretty much unreachable. =/

    Aikupu I concur, that looks great with gold hardware white pickups and clear knobs. Classy yet brutal I love it. I'd love a 7 string LP.

    These guitars play very well for the scale and have a nice sized neck, not a lot of girth. They are comfortable to do riffs on, and so comfortable I though they were inspiring to just play downright ugly riffs on them lol. Great budget 7.

    Kind of tired of people complaining about neck joints. I have a les paul with a baseball bat neck and a giant heel and I learned to shred and play all the up to the 22nd fret even with my guitar incredibly low. It just takes some getting used too. Although, it is a way better idea to get a guitar with a small neck joint if you haven't learned how to deal with the heel, but don't rule out a guitar because of so,etching you can eventually overcome.
