ESP LTD Stephen Crapenter SC-607?!?!?!?!?!?!

Hey everyone,
I recently had to get rid of my beautiful Ibanez S7420 Flame Top w/ an H-S-H configuration for new EMG 707's for my UV7, which leaves me heartbroken. But, after doing some looking around, I found the ESP SC-7. It's a neck-thru-body, with a rosewood fretboard, EMG 81-7's(?), and a gorgeous 2-tone burst (what resembles a Gibson Vintage Sunburst) on a flame top. I'm greatly considering this one, because it's around $850, $200 cheaper than another UV. It's built a little better, will sound better and sure as hell looks better than most of the UV's out there now. Has anyone seen this thing yet? if not, go to ESP's site and check it out in the Signature series under Stephen Carpenter's lineup. It's NOT the baritone, the one right above it. Let me know what you think, & BE TRUTHFUL, as it will greatly affect my purchasing decision. Thanks again, Josh

Stephen Crapenter in the subject title? Was that a Freudian slip?

Oooh! New ESP site! I like that they now show colour switching options on all the guitars!

That standard-scale SC-607 is new for 2004. Very nice... the sunburst looks really cool. If the longer scale isn't your thing, i'd say this is a great guitar for the money. As far as i know, you can't get those EMGs anywhere else at this time.

Hey, I NEVER said he was a good guitarist, he just has good taste in how his guitars are built. Like I said, it's built better than the UV's, and will sound better than a UV, due to the neck-thru-body & string-thru-body set-up. The EMG's add a nice touch to the whole thing. The sunburst finish looks killer compared to the all black/chrome combo.
