Artist Spiritus7 Black Gloss 7 String Electric Guitar
Artist Spiritus7 Black Gloss 7-String Electric Guitar
The Artist Spiritus7 is the perfect introduction to 7 String guitar to take you on your journey to the world of low tuned Metal and Djent. This guitar has a super-strat shaped black gloss Poplar body, a Canadian Maple Bolt-on neck, black Tunomatic bridge and string-thru ferule tail for the best sustain possible. The controls are simple and effective, 1 volume, 1 Tone and a 3-way selector.
With its moderate-high output passive open-coiled ceramic magnet humbuckers, this guitar will have a tight low end, and that familiar lower-mid growl that some of the more expensive guitars on the market have, that is crucial to low tuned Heavy Metal and Hardcore styles.

Amazing guitar!By: Craig Diprose on 26 July 2021This is my first 7-string guitar that I have properly played and i'm amazed at how comfortable it is to play and how amazing it sounds too. Using it through a NUX MG-300, it sounds expensive without being expensive!
By: Artist GuitarsWe are stoked to hear your feedback with the Spiritus7. Thank you so much for your support!
Amazing valueBy: Peter Wong on 9 July 2021Just received one of these today. Playable right out of the box and getting great tones from it. Just amazing value. Credit to Artist Guitars for bringing quality to low-priced instruments.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you very much. We are glad that you like the guitar. We're always here if you have any other questions or need help. Cheers!
SolidBy: Dwayne on 17 June 2021I was skeptical a guitar under $300 would be of decent quality, but I was wrong. I bought this not expecting much and got so much more. If you're new to 7 strings, this is a solid starting point. The only thing that lets this guitar down are the stock strings and pickups. I highly recommend replacing the pickups (I opted for an EMG 707 in the neck and EMG 81-7 in the bridge), combined with some 0.11-0.70 strings and it sings. Now, one thing I did not check before I purchased (my fault) is the scale. This is a 25.5" scale 7 string, which means if you plan on playing Erra or Spiritbox riffs in tunings like Drop F#, you're out of luck as the scale means you would require very high guage strings and then need to adjust other parts of the guitar to support the tension. Still, if you're happy playing in Drop B/A tunings, this is a solid guitar. Definitely replace the pickups with active ones and new strings, you've got yourself a guitar that sounds like one 4 times the price then.
By: Artist GuitarsWe're sorry to hear that the pickups and strings didn't work out for you but thank you for the detailed product review and even suggestions for other customers. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need help with anything. Cheers.
Great valueBy: Yuri on 8 April 20217 strings aren't my thing at all but i was tempted to get this because it was a customer returned guitar so i got it at a great price. I figured i'll just tinker on it and if i don't like it, it's not a huge loss. Well after i dealt with an earthing issue, i was surprised how nice it is, and it had great low action straight out of the box. I didn't have to do any setting up at all. It's actually fun and enjoyable to play (and i've never liked 7 strings before) so i'm going to hang on to it. For people who are into 7 string guitars you can't go wrong with this. Even at the full price you won't find better value.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you for the kind words and we are happy to hear that you have grown to like the Spiritus 7. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us and we are more than happy to help.

By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for the review! We're stoked to hear that you are happy with your purchase!
Bargain on a 7 stringBy: Ernie on 14 July 2020I got this as my first Personal Guitar and i was conscious that a 7-string guitar under 300 would probably be a little bit dodgey but it was such a bargain I got it anyway and it is a very nice, good quality guitar and is an absolute bargain and I do not regret a cent spent on it!
Sub $300 7 String Guitar? You can't go far wrongBy: Narayana on 9 July 2020I ordered my new baby, and 1st ever 7 String on Tuesday, it arrived on Thursday. I have only had her for about an hour and already I have found that she is a beautiful playing instrument right out of the box. All she needed was a quick tune up after unboxing and she's good to go, and does she sound thick & chunky, or what, man!?! Holy hell... If you're in the market for your 1st 7 String and just want a budget axe to cut your teeth on without spending a small fortune then I highly recommend you try one of these beasts out. Awesome bang for the buck. Seriously, get one of these (unless you need a Tremolo Bridge Guitar? Hahahaha!). I am very impressed with Artist Guitars' budget instruments. I have a Dreadnaught Acoustic from these guys and it is the same story with it also... a beautiful playing instrument straight out the box, especially considering their budget pricetag. Very impressive. And the Spiritus 7 is sooo much fun to play... hearing those thick, chunky LOW Notes is near orgasmic. Thank you Artist Guitars!
An amazing find!By: Helen Vincent on 23 June 2020The guitar is such a great quality instrument. Its well made and finished. Ordering was quick and easy on the site and delivery was so fast, turned up quicker than expected. Im so happy with the purchase, will definitely be back for more soon!!
