ESP Ltd. H-307 review
ESP Ltd. H-307 is a pretty much sought after 7-string that was made in 2000-2002. Mahogany body with maple top, neck-through construction, T-O-M bridge with tailpiece.
Tuning stability 9/10
Decent tuners, well cut nut, tight bridge. It's okay when it comes to tuning and it stays in tune for quite long.
Acoustic sound 8/10
Dark, warm, round and pleasant. I would say that it sounds powerful, given its body which is only 38mm thick.
Electric sound 9/10
I've never had a chance to check out its stock pickups as I bought this one with EMG 707s. They deliver harmonics like nothing else I have played. The tone is saturated, round, thick and ballsy. Versatile and useful sounds.
This guitar was used in recording of a grindcore album Bullet(in) by FAM:
High quality finish, no complaints.
25.5" scale and thin U neck-through neck with upper fret access that good that it beats every Ibanez I have ever played. The best, most playable neck I have layed my fingers on.

Standard features, nothing fancy. No TonePros bridge, standard plastic nut, no straplocks.
This guitar is perfectly balanced and shaped. Thin, slick body makes it exceptionally comfortable.
H-307 isn't heavy but on the other hand it certainly doesn't give an impression of a cheap instrument.
Price - around 750 dollars new, it's not a bad price.
