ESP LTD SC608B Stephen Carpenter 8 String Baritone Guitar in Black

Written by

Jed Van Wyngaardt

The ESP LTD SC-608B Stephen Carpenter is a baritone signature guitar made for the Deftones axeman to get those fat low tones that he's famous for.

Active Circuitry

The active EMG pickups provide the perfect platform for you to pile on the distortion but still cut through the mix. When combined with the low-end generated by the additional 2 strings and the baritone scale length you get a recipe for fat guitar sounds. 


The hipshot bridge provides plenty of sustain and stability so that your guitar doesn't go out of tune no matter how hard you chug. Add the locking tuners and you've got a tour-ready instrument. Surprisingly, the neck is super fast thanks to the flat neck U neck shape and massive frets.

You can really grip the strings and shred higher up and lower down for those heavy palm muted riffs.
