There's nothing like the buttery feel of an ebony fingerboard

For his signature 7-string, Alex Wade spec'd an ebony fingerboard. One of the hardest of the hardwoods, ebony is the premium fingerboard of choice for guitarists who prefer a slick, nonporous playground for fast fretwork. Ebony also gives your notes a snappy attack that's quite a bit different from what you get with maple and rosewood. These qualities - on top of ESP's U-shaped maple neck - make ebony the perfect fingerboard for high-speed, low-drag shredding.

DiMarzio D Activators onboard for serious tone

The ESP LTD AW-7 Alex Wade Signature 7-string is fitted with two DiMarzio D Activator humbuckers that serve up a veritable tonefest, giving you everything from chimey cleans to searing hot shred - and all points in between. These passive pups are designed to replicate the strong, focused attack of active pickups without batteries. They have great high end and are nice and tight when you're driving distortion. With tons of headroom, D Activators quickly and accurately respond to nuances in your pick attack. When you dig in, your signal doesn't flatten out, and the sound cleans up nicely when you pick softly or roll back your volume pot. Designed from the ground up as a set, the Bridge D Activator is about 25% louder than its neck counterpart, so when you switch between them, no volume compensation is necessary. At Sweetwater, we love these pickups - and so will you!
