Did somebody already found out, what the guitar tuning on the koi no yokan songs (that we already heard) is?

Stefs guitar tunning is E B E A D G B E .. and chino has a very weird tunning .. check out on a thread a guy posted saying he covered rosemary .. he has the right tunning i believe for chinos guitar ..

Yeah when they did the show at Warner Summer Sessions and debuted Rosemary The setlist had the tuning on it and It was A#GCFAD for Chino's guitar... However, as far as the rest of the songs on Koi No Yokan I'm not too sure. I'd imagine a couple will be in Drop C for Chino.. That's usually his guitar tuning for a lot of songs.

So for Adrenaline, Around the Fur, and White Pony, Stephen obviously wrote his guitar parts on 6 string guitars Standard Tuning for Adrenaline Drop C# for ATF and Drop C for White Pony... Now from watching all the live videos, it seems like Stephen plays all of those 6 strings songs on 7 strings and DE and KNY on his 8 string guitars.. Does anyone know what tuning he plays ATF WP on his 7 string guitars? I'm trying to figure out how he would play classics like My own Summer and BQAD on a 7 string guitar.. The tunings gotta be different.

Since transitioning from a 6-string to a seven-string guitar in late 2000, in live performances Carpenter plays the songs originally played on a six-string guitar on a 7-string with the two highest strings tuned to the same note (ex. EADGBEE for Adrenaline), after discovering that Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland did this to some of his seven-string guitars. Carpenter does this because it was harder for him to play a regular 6-string after getting used to the wider neck and longer scale length of his signature 7-strings. The song "Rocket Skates" from Diamond Eyes is played on an 8-string, although Carpenter does not make use of the low F# string. In order to prevent confusion between rigs while touring, he has two identical rigs, one for U.S. tours and the other for foreign countries.

I was never into 7 or 8 strings for my own playing, but I completely need an ESP Stef B-7 an B-8 but they cost so damn much, damn.

I got his 207 ltd and I love it super good value for the price and it's still good enough quality that it's worth spending money upgrading the pickups and stuff, I barely use it for 7 string songs at the moment but I still choose to use it for 6 string songs because as a big guy it just feels alot more comfortable the neck fit's my hand alot better and I can play for long periods of time without my hand cramping up like on my 6, when I use a normal 6 now I feel like I'm using a children's guitar I don't think  I'd ever buy another 6.

that's awesome. That's why I want a 7 and an 8 because you just can't create thunder with a 6, maybe a little lightning to ride on with a 6 but not thunder. Ive gotta get one.

For anyone interested, I got to have a chat to Abe after the first Melbourne show and I asked him about the snare he has been using for the majority of the year so far. Abe is no longer using the 14x6" Starphonic Brass Snare that he has used since 2010. He is now using a new Tama "Signature" prototype snare which is like an old OCDP snare with large vent holes. Not to sure when and if it will be made available to the public.

This is the only photo of it I can find.

Na fender have the slimmer headstocks, the one he's using looks alot like this but his guitars are all customised so theres never going to be an exact match, I heard he has a tele customised with emgs and a humbucker in the neck the one in the video could be that.

It might be some weird brand aswell though I know he's not a signed artist anywhere and in the past he's used lots of odd cheaper brands like yamaha,gretsch and epiphone but lately I've noticed he's been sticking to the higher end brands like Gibson and Fender so chances are it is fender.

Thats most definitely an EPS/LTD "vintage plus telecaster", probably custom made because of the neck pickup. And it seems that the logo on the headstock was sanded out or covered with tape. Or maybe he requested a headstock without logo, ESP used to offer that option on his "online custom form" back in the day.
