BB-600 BARITONE

SEE THRU BLACK SUNBURST SATIN

$1,299.00 with case

Ben Burnley is the founder of the eponymously-named rock/alt-metal band Breaking Benjamin, and his LTD Signature Series guitar, the BB-600 Baritone, is the driving force for this frontman's musical creations. The BB-600B is one of the most versatile signature models ever made by ESP. It includes two distinct pickup types: a pair of high-quality magnetic pickups (with a set comprised of Seymour Duncan '59 and JB), as well as a Graph Tech Ghost-Loaded Resomax NV bridge and tailpiece that offers an integrated piezo pickup. The BB-600B also includes two output jacks, allowing you to route the signal from the standard magnetic pickups to one amplifier and the piezo pickup to another for incredible flexibility onstage or in studios. More than just sonically flexible, the BB-600B is an incredible instrument in other ways as well. A single-cutaway Eclipse body style with set-thru construction, the BB-600B is a baritone guitar at 27" scale, allowing for downtuning without sacrificing ideal string tension. Its mahogany body is topped with quilted maple in an amazing See Thru Black Sunburst Satin finish. It offers a thin U-shaped three-piece maple neck for a comfortable playing feel. The aesthetic of this guitar is complemented with custom red pickup covers, red fingerboard inlays with the Breaking Benjamin symbol, and a red LTD logo.

Hello, 

Just wondering if you someone can explain the 'active EQ' for the passive humbuckers in the guitar and if the battery is needed? 

Jeff H.

Greetings,


The majority of breaking Benjamin songs are played with Drop A# tuning, yet this signature guitar comes in B to B tuning.  So to play Breaking Benjamin songs you would have to actually tune up 5 out of the 6 strings by one half step to achieve Drop A# tuning.  (A# F A# D# G C) up from B E A D F# B.  Only the 6th string would be tuned down one half step but all other strings would have to be raised one half step.   My question - can this guitar handle that extra tension out of the box or would I have to make a bunch of adjustments (truss rod, etc.) to achieve Drop A# tuning without damaging the guitar or the stock .13 strings?  Or is the guitar good to go without any adjustments to achieve Drop A# tuning?

Hi Jeff, Yes this guitar can handle this tuning, however the guitar will need to have the truss rod and bridge adjusted for intonation. It would probably be a good idea to put a slightly lighter string gauge on the guitar for this tuning (maybe a 12 gauge or 11 gauge set), but it certainly will work with the stock strings if wanted.

Trevor T.

What string gauge does this guitar cone with?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Trevor, This model comes with D'Addario XL158 (.013/.017/.026/.036/.046/.062), and is tuned in a Baritone tuning (B-E-A-D-F#-B).

Jordan P.

So if I wanted to swap these pickups for fishman fluence moderns with two push pulls, what kind of work am I looking at doing?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Jordan. Basically you will need to replace the pots for the electric pickups and you may need to adjust the preamp buffer on the piezo to match the output between piezo and electric pickups, however, since each has a discreet output this may not be necessary. This all is not too difficult, but we recommend taking your guitar to an experienced guitar tech or repair person who can do this for you.

Curious if this is currently being made/can be ordered in lefty models as well. I hate being lefty but I could never get it down as a righty.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Damon, Sorry this model is not currently available as LH, and it is not possible to special order.
