Overview

If seven strings isn't giving you enough depth, it's time to experience the ESP Stef Carpenter 608B Baritone Electric Guitar. Built to the specs of the guitarist for Deftones, this amazing 8-string baritone comes with an alder body, black hardware and Fluence Signature Series Stephen Carpenter Pickups. It's perfect for achieving powerful low end and offers players a huge expansion of range over a standard 7-string guitar. Case sold separately

Signature Pickups
Stephen is a player's player, preferring to concentrate more on his music than equipment. "My signature pickup set has the full range of tones that you're looking for. Voice 1 is similar to the tone of the original Modern Humbucker Fluence set. And for the second voice, I like a bit more heat, some hot stuff on it... more edge, so that's in there too."

Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core Fishman then create the classic timbres and tone — colors you expect from great guitar pickups — as well as some you’ve never expected.

"I was never the super-critical guy. I'm not much for specs, but I like clean, full sounding pickups. We put Fluence in and I jammed on them for 45 minutes and thought... 'these things are freaking great...' I didn't want to stop playing."

Voice 1 - "Like the original Modern Fluence sound that I love, but tweaked a bit in the midrange."

Voice 2 - "This is my custom voicing with some tone and gain tweaks to give it that extra heat and edge."
