The ESP LTD AW-7 Alex Wade Signature electric guitar features neck-thru-body construction, a mahogany body with a flamed maple top, and a 25.5" scale maple neck with an ebony fretboard. The thin U-shaped neck contour and 24 extra jumbo frets make the AW-7 an extremely playable instrument. Armed with a vicious pair of humbucking pickups-a DiMarzio D-Activator in the bridge and neck positions-this guitar can handle plenty of gain and boasts unmatched heavy metal roar. High-end appointments include a fixed bridge with thru-body strining, ESP locking tuning machines, all-black hardware and comes in a Wade-inspired Blood Red Sunburst finish.

Ive had this guitar for 8 months, and there hasn't been a day that I regret purchasing this guitar. Since day one of playing it, I have experienced no problems what so ever. The thing that pulled me towards purchasing this guitar was the fact that it had passive pickups in it, yet it is played by the guitarist of Whitechapel. Knowing that they originally used active EMGs, and I myself used active Seymour Duncan blackouts, I wanted to see why they made the switch and decided to make the switch as well. I could not be more satisfied with the tone I get from this. Perfect crunch for any Deathcore, death metal, metalcore, and anything in between.
More Like 3.5 stars. Here's the good. The D Activators sound amazing. Perfect for anything from Jazz to Prog/Tech/Metal. Finish is flawless, overall, it feels like a sturdy, quality instrument. Now the bad... All of my hardware was defective out of the box. Went to change the strings and the action and that's when I found multiple stripped screws in the bridge saddles. The nut was also filed too low and the two lowest string sockets were too deep so strings of the stock gauge were hitting on the first few frets. Sadly I did not change the stock strings for 3 weeks and when I did, I found all these problems. Return/Exchange is not happening because it would cost me more in gas to drive to my nearest GC and shipping is out of the question. My advice. Change the stock strings ASAP so if there's problems, you'll know right away.
