BW-1 EVERTUNE

SEE THRU BLACK

$1,599.00 with case

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 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”). This model utilizes a standard 9V battery and comes in See Thru Black finish.

How much sound effect does the f-hole add to this guitar. MIT did research on f-holes in violins years ago and discovered that the elongated f-hole increased the quality of sound. So I'm wondering if that applies to this guitar also?  Also, does the semi-hollow body of this guitar have more of a metal sound than a solid body guitar?

Carl N.

Hey Ron, we do not measure the output generated by the soundhole of this instrument so I would have no figure to provide to you.  Not sure what you mean by metal sound, metal as in like metallic in nature or do you mean metal as in the genre?

Ron M.

Carl, what I mean by metal sound is heavy metal music genre. 

Carl N.

Hey Ron, maybe the demo of this instrument will help you out.  Though, you can get nearly any guitar to sound metal with the right amps, effects, etc.

Any idea where I can get one of these in the UK? Kind of struggling!

Hi Ben, This may not be an item most dealers stock. Please contact your local distributor and ask them to assist you. Here is a link to our distributor page: https://www.espguitars.com/locations?categories=intl-distributors

I just got one.  Such a great guitar.  Mine doesnt have any push-pull pots though.  And mine has another internal jack inside.  I doubt its connected, but neat that it's there.

 

I'll have to get some 25k push-pulls so I can use the diff voices.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Mike, Thanks for your comments. Sorry to hear you didn't receive the push pull pots. Those should be included with the newer build of the BW-1 model with the Fishman Fluence pickups. Please contact our customer service team and send them the details of your instrument (dealer where purchased & serial number) and they should be able to help you out. Here is their email: customerservice@espguitars.com

How long will this guitar be sold for? Is it a limited run, or would I be able to buy it in a year or two?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Gavin, This is a regular production model. It is not limited and will continue to be in the line until we or the artist decides to discontinue or replace this model. I can't say whether it will be around in a year or 2 but there is no plan to discontinue it at this time.
