    Those are Fishman Fluence Moderns. Big difference, and another reason to be excited about it imo.

    Head said he sold off/gave away his Ibanez 7s when he quit korn, only kept his LACS Untouchables guitar, also said he dind't pick up another 7 string until he went onstage to play with korn for the first time since he had quit.

    I'd take a K7 before that, IMO. I really dig ESP a lot, but that doesn't look too special for a sig model. It's cool, but I'm really shocked he left Ibanez for it.

    My thoughts exactly. It doesn't need to scream signature, but it's a bit boring and I just hate Evertune :(

    But still, Ibanez artist department is a bit "stiff" unless you're mr. Vai or Satriani and that's why I understand him swapping to ESP. Maybe the next Head model will be more appealing to me.

    I can't say anything about Head's sig, but I got the H-1007B and that neck is surprisingly thin for an ESP/LTD. I really like it a lot.

    ^It's ESP, so no. :ugh:

    I disagree. I was never a fan of the inlays on the K7. Love how much more subdued this is. If anything, this seems to have more personality compared to his boring Konrad sig model.

    ESP has a decent amount of lefty models (definitely more than Ibanez).

    Blurry, but took a screenshot from ESP's Instagram video feed. This thing looks really nice. The hardware appears to be a true black and not a black chrome/cosmo black look. That's a positive in my book.

    Head posted this on his Instagram last night. It definitely looks like they ended up going with a matte finish on the pickups.

    My thoughts exactly. I just need ESP to update their website so I can download a high res full image of the guitar to look at until mine gets here.
