Since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1994, Korn guitarist and songwriter Brian "Head" Welch has been inspiring fellow metal musicians as well as up-and-comers with his unique and moody playstyle.
Nu Metal Lives On!
Despite the "Nu Metal" scene seemingly dwindling throughout the 2000s, Korn continue to release new material and remain a firm favourite amongst their fanbase even today, spurred on by Head rejoining the band in 2013 after an 8 year hiatus.
7 Strings, Powerful Pickups, And Enough Growl to Scare the Vicar
A large feature in the creation of Head's (and Korns) signature sound was the use of 7 stringed guitars. Featuring a Low B after the Low E, even with standard B to E tuning the depths to which you can plummet to with a 7-string is impressive.
Drop tune the guitar from B standard to drop-A tuning (so, A, D, G, C, F, A, D), then throw some heavy fuzz/distortion into the mix, and you'll hear just one of the reasons why Head's riffs throughout the 90's managed to stand out above his peers.
Brand New Evertune "Sir Headly" Brian Welch Signature Guitar
The LTD SH-7ET Evertune is Head's latest signature guitar. This premium-grade, feature-laden beast of an instrument is new to 2017 and won't be available forever, so order yours today to avoid missing out!
Head Specified Features
Brian Welch worked very closely with the ESP product development team during the creation of the SH-7ET Evertune. Featuring thinner, more streamlined horns, an EverTune constant tension bridge system, and a pair of innovative Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups, this is a guitar that will certainly serve its purpose and then some.
Highly Versatile Electronics
Whether you want to make full use of the powerful, active humbucker voices presented by the Fishman Fluence pickups on the SH-7ET Evertune, or you'd prefer a brighter single-coil sound, the options are here for you. Simple make use of the tone-control's Push/Pull function to switch between pickup types, then use the selector toggle to choose the configuration you need.
ESP's LTD SH-7ET Evertune gets its name from the innovative bridge system used in its construction. EverTune constant tension bridge systems are designed to ensure that your guitar stays completely in tune (with perfect intonation across the fretboard) in nearly any condition. Drop tune the guitar to your heart's content, and play it as aggressively as you wish, it won't go out of tune!
In addition to the delicious translucent Purple finish over the Flamed Maple top, the SH-7ET Evertune is adorned by an ebony fingerboard, which offers glow-in-the-dark side markers, allowing fret positions to be easily seen on even the darkest of stages. Not only that, but the ergonomically sculped, lightweight basswood body offers an extremely comfortable playing experience for you, whatever your situation.
If my buying decision was based on looks alone, I'd still be tempted by this guitar. Fortunately it also sounds incredible, so watch out for it landing at PMT Stores soon, or order yours online today!
