The maple and rosewood together, offer bright and clear tones as well a softer sound with great articulation. The neck is paired with a rosewood fingerboard which offers warm lows and a beautifully soft tone with crisp highs.
The ash body delivers bright tones with good resonance. It also offers a light and comfortable playing experience, and a sound that has plenty of twang. The ash tones are both crisp and articulate, with firm lows and snappy highs. The ash body is topped with a visually beautiful spalt maple top, which provides excellent sustain with a great dynamic range.
The spalt maple top offers a beautifully textured appearance, and it is finished with a natural satin to allow the wood grain to be visible through. Spalt Maple provides incredibly unique aesthetics, as the contrast between the grains adds another dimension to the appearance.
The B-204 is loaded with quality LTD hardware, including LTD Tuners and a LTD BB-604 Bridge. They work together to reliably keep your tune stable, no matter how hard your playing style is.
