The ESP LTD SN-1 Baritone lets you explore new lows and unlock extended range potential. With its 27" baritone scale length, this six-string beast maintains ideal string tension for tuning down as far as B standard. The SN-1 Baritone's roasted maple neck offers exceptional stability and sustain. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard has a compound radius that allows for speed and comfort when soloing across 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets. From frets 17-24, the fingerboard is scalloped for increased string vibration and effortless bends. The SN-1 Baritone's lightweight swamp ash body resonates with thickness to produce a bold low-end, while its tilt-back reverse headstock provides ideal string angle over the Hipshot hardtail bridge. With string-thru-body construction and LTD locking tuners, this guitar stays rock-solid once tuned—essential for nailing chugs and chords in extended range.

Explore New Depths With the Extended 27-Inch Scale

The SN-1 Baritone's extended 27" scale length lets you tune down while maintaining tension and tone. Its long scale is perfect for dropped tunings like B-E-A-D-F#-B. The low B string won't go slack so you can play heavy riffs with tightness and clarity. With its baritone range, the SN-1 opens up new creative possibilities. Write songs in fresh tunings or put a dark twist on your existing material. The SN-1 Baritone makes it easy to go lower and explore new depths.

Resonant Swamp Ash Body

The SN-1 Baritone has a lightweight swamp ash body that resonates with thickness. Ash has an open pore structure that enhances vibration, producing rich lows, pleasant mids and singing highs. Combined with the 27" scale, the resonant ash body gives chords incredible depth and clarity. Its contoured edges and forearm cut allow hours of comfortable playing. Plug in the ESP LTD SN-1 Baritone and let your riffs rumble.

Speed and Comfort With the Compound Radius Ebony Fingerboard

The Macassar ebony fingerboard has a compound radius that flattens out as you move up the neck. Lower frets have a gentle curve for comfortable chording, while the flatter higher frets allow for fast soloing and wide bends. Combined with the smooth feel of ebony, the compound radius fingerboard lets your fingers fly across the neck with ease. The medium-jumbo stainless steel frets are built to last through heavy riffing and lead work.

Scalloped Frets for Increased String Vibration

From frets 17-24, the fingerboard is scalloped—the wood is carved away from beneath each fret. This allows your fingers to press the strings closer to the fingerboard for increased string vibration, making bends easier and adding life to each note. The scalloped frets let you put your personal touch on every phrase.

Two Distinct Voices With the Fishman Fluence Humbucker

The Fishman Fluence Modern humbucker bridge pickup unlocks two distinct voices to suit your tonal needs. Voice 1 delivers that coveted high-output growl, with crisp, tight bass and searing leads. For more organic crunch with outstanding dynamics, engage Voice 2 with the push-pull control on the volume knob. From thick rhythm chops to singing leads, you'll find the perfect voice to complement your playing style.
