ESP Original Series Snapper-7 Electric Guitar - Vintage Candy Apple Red
Part of ESP's Original Series, the Snapper-7 is a traditional-style solidbody electric guitar handbuilt by the company's master luthiers at their Custom Shop in Japan. This hot-rodded extended-range instrument boasts a contoured body crafted from solid alder, which exhibits a balanced-sounding acoustic tone that pairs perfectly with its Seymour Duncan pickups. Speaking of which, the Snapper-7 sports a versatile HSS pickup configuration, with a push-pull tone knob and mini-toggle switch for added sonic flexibility. You'll love the comfortable playability of this guitar's bolt-on Thin "U"-shaped neck, which is capped by a lightning-fast 12-inch-radius Honduras rosewood fingerboard. A responsive ESP Flicker-III tremolo and rock-solid Gotoh locking tuners are also on tap. This 7-string electric guitar also includes a bone nut, a head-turning finish, and gleaming chrome hardware. Adventurous guitarists searching for a classic S-shaped axe for extended-range playing will appreciate the styling, tone, and playability of the ESP Snapper-7.
Optimized for playability
The Snapper-7 is a completely optimized version of what Sweetwater customers expect from ESP: effortless playability that streamlines and even enhances the relationship between you and your guitar. A 1-piece bolt-on maple neck and Honduras rosewood fingerboard offers glassy smooth fretting made easier by ESP's "Thin U" profile for a speed neck that retains some rounded fullness in the overall feel. For enhanced fretwork, this neck also features a 12-inch radius and 22 medium-jumbo frets.
Hot Seymour Duncan pickups
A fine guitar is nothing without fine pickups, and the ESP Original Series Snapper-7 offers nothing but the best. This guitar boasts three premium Seymour Duncan passive pickups in an HSS-style configuration. The bridge, a Custom 5 humbucker, is a red-hot, Alnico V version of Duncan's acclaimed Custom Custom humbucker — perfect for bombastic soaring solos and nuanced fretwork. In the middle and neck positions you'll find powerful Custom Staggered Strat single-coil pickups. These Alnico V pups, which were developed for legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, deliver a pumped-up single-coil sound with glassy highs, bell-like mids, and round low end with extra harmonic richness at every turn. The Snapper-7 features classic 5-way pickup switching, but with the additional pickup mix toggle and capacitance switching options, the available tones onboard are practically double.
