Featuring a 27-inch scale length as appose to traditional 24.75, 25, and 25.5 inch scale lengths, the SC-208B provides players with baritone capabilities ideal for a range of technical playing styles. Due to the longer scale length, the ESP can be tuned to a range of low tunings such as standard tuning (F#,B,E,A,D,G,B,E), or fourth tuning (F#,B,E,A,D,G,C,F) particularly favourable with heavy metal players requiring a low and deep tone.
The ESP LTD SC-608B Stephen Carpenter Baritone is crafted from mahogany, delivering warm, balanced tone with an excellent bass response. A classic, single cutaway is also included and allows players to reach the higher frets with ease. Finally, the SC-608B is finished off with a red sparkle finish for added elegance.
Fishman Fluence SRC Signature pickups provide you with two distinct and powerful voices, that can be selected by using push-pull tone knobs. The re-imagined active electronics offer the incredibly powerful and muscular, classic humbucker sound without the noise, hum or undesirable feedback. Players can easily select their preferred voice using the volume and tone controls with push/pull functionality, as well as the 3-way toggle switch.
