Sire – maker of inexpensive acoustic guitars and basses – teamed up with American guitarist Larry Carlton to release his very first electric guitars: the Larry Carlton H7, L7 and S7.
Models adopt three of the most popular electric guitar contours, with prices ranging from $599 to $699. Here is the truth…
Larry Carlton H7
The Larry Carlton H7 is modeled after a 335 style shape and available in Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst or Red.
It is equipped with two Larry Carlton Vintage humbucking pickups, which can be controlled via the guitar’s two volume knobs, two tone knobs and a three-way switch.
The model also features a maple body with a flamed maple top and a C-shaped mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets.
Larry Carlton L7
The Larry Carlton L7 is an LP-style electric featuring a mahogany body, hard maple top and flamed veneer.
As with the H7, this guitar features a C-shaped mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard. The finishes available with the L7 are Trans Blue, Tobacco Sunburst and Gold Top.
The electronics run through a pair of Larry Carlton Modern humbuckers, which can be controlled using the two volume knobs, two tone knobs and three-way selector.
Larry Carlton S7
The S7 is an electric S-style model with an alder body and roasted hard maple neck and matching maple fingerboard, and is available in Arctic White, Tobacco Sunburst Sherwood Green finishes.
It features an HSS setup and is equipped with a set of Sire Super-ST pickups. Controls include unique volume and tone knobs. Hardware includes a modern Sire tremolo bridge and Sire locking tuners.
