The LTD Signature Series guitar for Alex Wade of American deathcore band Whitechapel is back and better than ever! The AW-7 Baritone is a 7-string guitar at 27” scale, allowing for extreme downtuning with its extended lower range. The guitar’s swamp ash body offers an Open Grain Black Satin finish, and its five-piece maple/walnut/paduak neck has a Macassar ebony fingerboard and stainless steel frets. The AW-7 Baritone gets its tone from a set of direct-mount DiMarzio D-Activator 7 pickups, with enriched harmonic overtones and tight low end response. This guitar also features a Hipshot fixed hardtail bridge and LTD locking tuners.
