Up for sale, a 2014 ESP Arrow-7 Flying V 7 string electric guitar in excellent condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original form-fit gigbag. Masterfully crafted in Japan, this is an incredibly rare non-catalog custom production Arrow, sporting a Candy Apple Red finish with metallic green bevel accents and pair of active EMG 81 and 85 USA-made pickups. This Arrow features heel-less neck through maple body construction with alder body wings and a maple fingerboard, ensuring an articulate, neutral tonal platform for high gain crunch and detuned chunk. The neck position EMG 85 features close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, and this popular EMG neck pickup is a powerful humbucker with exceptional tone and versatility. The alnico magnets provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones, enabling you to play everything from the blues to the most extreme metal. Pairing with a ceramic magnet EMG 81 in the bridge position, this pickup offers tones from fat, thunderous growl to metallic scream. This ESP Arrow-7 weighs 8lbs 2oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with slinky action and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve with nicely rounded shoulders, measuring .820" deep at the 1st fret and .905" at the 12th. The maple fretboard features flawless stock jumbo fretwire, and the guitar plays effortlessly up the straight neck with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod. The scale length is 24 3/4“, and the locking nut measures 1 13/16“ in width, providing ideal spacing for the seven strings. The matching headstock features a gold ESP logo, gleaming gold truss rod cover, and set of Gotoh tuners that turn smoothly.
The simple electronics function as intended, with the active EMG humbuckers governed by a Master Volume knob and three-way pickup selector toggle. The guitar is fitted with a new Floyd Rose Special vibrato unit (replacing the original of the same design), ideal for deep divebombs and sharp bends with flawless tuning stability. This Arrow-7 sports a custom color gloss Candy Apple Red finish with metallic green accents on the top edge bevel. Cosmetic wear is limited to a small ding on the bass side wing edge, typical minor finish chipping at the wing tips, and a few stray light marks and scuffs. The neck profile sports a clean gloss finish with a few shallow marks behind fret 6 that are not distracting to the palm, and light palm along the edges of the fretboard.
The original fitted gigbag is included.
