A beautiful blend of three woods give you great tone and visual appeal.
If you love the sharp contrast in color you get when you put different woods together, you'll love the design of this guitar. As with it's 4-string sibling, the 5-string B-5E has extremely beveled edges which allow you to really enjoy the distinct shades of light and dark that where the mahogany body and ebony top meet. Adding to this differentiation of color is the even lighter 5-piece neck-thru-body maple/mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. The quality of the craftsmanship makes it almost look as if this is how the woods naturally came off the tree.
But looks aren't everything your getting. Ensuring you get the most of the tones these blends of woods provide are ESP SB-5 pickups (bridge & neck) with an ESP ABQ-3 3-band active EQ. It is also worth noting that the body is short scale, at 34", with an extra thin "U" neck contour, making it easier to play for the average person. Other features include a 42mm standard nut, 24 XJ frets, ESP tuners, an ESP BB-604 bridge with string-thru-body, and black nickel hardware.
