Katana FX7 MkII

  • $3,499.00

The Katana FX7 MkII is the higher spec version of the original Katana series, and is indeed our most brutal weapon and flagship of the ET Guitars range.

The Katana FX7 MkII is also a 7 string baritone 27" scale guitar, ideally suited to down-tuned players, wanting to achieve dropped G tuning while keeping reasonable string tension and good percussive playing performance.

Design was enhanced with the introduction of the Evertune© bridge system. And it does just that, it stays in tune for ever! Please check out the technology here Evertune Technologies . The dense Wenge body top is full in tone, and balanced with the American Swamp Ash back, giving it some mid-scooped depth and high end sparkle. The body and headstock are painted in a "Slime" finish, featuring Neon Green and Black swirl graphics  The Ebony fretboard is snappy and can handle full range of dynamics and picking nuances, and in theme has neon green offset dot markers and green Glow side dots.
