The BW-1 EverTune is one of the most unique and innovative high performance guitars in the LTD Signature Series. Created by Ben Weinman, a founding member of mathcore geniuses The Dillinger Escape Plan and a current member of hardcore legends Suicidal Tendencies, Ben is a highly respected player whose combination of speed and feel has landed him on many "best of" guitarist lists, the BW-1's most notable feature is its EverTune constant tension bridge. It keeps the BW-1 in near perfect tune and intonation under almost any condition. The BW-1 EverTune is a neck-through-body design at 25.5" scale, with a chambered mahogany body and flamed maple top, and binding on the body, neck, and headstock. It offers a fast three-piece thin U-shaped maple neck with a macassar ebony fingerboard that includes 24 extra-jumbo frets. The sound of this guitar is powered by a set of Fishman Fluence® Modern Humbucker active pickups with nickel covers. These pickups allow for a remarkable degree of sonic flexibility. Two separate voicings are selectable via the push-pull on the tone control (down for “Modern Active” tone, or up for “Modern Passive Attack”). Available in See Thru Black finish.

I've wanted one of these since they were first released.

Finally ordered one in March 2023 and waited 8 month for it to arrive in Australia.  

Although I'm pretty disappointed that there is a small ding/crack in the finish, I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it and possibly waiting almost another year for a replacement.

That said... This thing plays like a dream. Feel is amazing! The neck on it is exactly what I look for!

This guitar single-handedly made LTD/ESP my favorite guitar brands. The specs and sound are perfect, and it looks even better in person. Bought it about 3 years ago and haven't gotten tired of it for a second.

I finally decided to buy this guitar from AMS and I’m so happy I did!  My bands music is a little eclectic, and this guitar is perfect….jazz, hardcore, progressive metal all sound awesome!  Plus it’s fun to play some fast loud stuff with a semi-hollow body because no one expects it when you get on stage with this

I received this guitar today and it sounds amazing! Extremely versatile. I traded in my Gibson for it and it's the greatest decision I ever made.
