The ESP BB-1004QM in see thru black looks genuinly amazing, the new signature model for Jazz Fusion Bassist Bunny Brunel. Bunny is used to playing in every genre with some of the worlds most famous musicians. His signature Bass is ready for anything you can throw at it.
The Quilted Maple top is amazing. With a smooth black sunburst effect this bass looks stylish and has a smooth Glossy finish. Black hardware and an Ebony fretboard finish the style nicely.
Quality Aguilar Pickups
The Neck MM pickup recreates the classic Stingray style tone while adding all of the characteristics that Aguilar pickups are known for – excellent string-to-string balance, consistency of tone and rich harmonic content. With this pickup you'll have the ultimate in tonal flexibility.
The bridge mounted split-coil pickup gives you noiseless Jazz Bass tone that works for all playing styles. With traditional single-coil pickups, bassists are plagued by hum when the neck and bridge pickups are at different volume levels. While other hum-canceling pickups tackle the noise, you are left with thinner lows, a harsher midrange and a lack of dynamics.
The Aguilar hum-canceling pickups feature a split-coil design that allows you to get any pickup level combination without 60-cycle hum - all while retaining the natural, organic tone of your bass. Now you can experience the deep, resonant low-end of the neck pickup or solo the bridge pickup for that sought-after midrange cut without annoying hum! Wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory, the HC pickups are wound to have the big, dynamic tone that Aguilar pickups are known for.
ESP Guitars - one of the "Big 3" when it comes to making guitars & basses for Rock & Metal players. ESP guitars are available in two basic series - ESP & LTD. If it has ESP on the headstock then the guitar has been hand crafted in the ESP Japanese workshop. The quality of these ESP guitars is exceptional - they even have a custom shop that can custom make you anything you want! If the guitar has LTD on the headstock then these are made in other Far Eastern factories (normally Korea). These LTD guitars are made in larger quantities using an assembly line process - the quality is still great & the value for money is amazing.
Over the last 30 years ESP has attracted 100's of the worlds best known guitarists & bass players. The full artist list is massive (if you want to read it go here http://www.espguitars.com/artists.html), but here are a few of the guys that have their own ESP custom made models.
