The LTD EC-17fromESPis a seven-string electric guitar that features a double-cutaway basswood body with a sleek black finish, and a comparatively low price point for an entry-level seven-string. Its 25.5"-scale bolt-on maple neck is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard and 22 extra-jumbo frets. To increase the natural sustain of the wood, the strings attach through the back of the body and are intonated with a tune-o-matic bridge, then secured by a set of LTD tuners.
For electronics, the guitar is outfitted with a pair of ESP-designed humbucking pickups—an LH-100N in the neck position and an LH-100B in the bridge. A three-way pickup selector switch, a shared volume knob, and a shared tone knob give you control over the electronics various timbres.
