Built to the Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist's specs, the ESP LTD BW-1 FMET stays flawlessly in tune, even after bends or vibrato, thanks to the EverTune bridge.

A Workhorse of a Guitar for the Aggressive Player
The ESP LTD BW-1 FMET Ben Weinman electric guitar -- the Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist's signature instrument -- was designed to handle whatever style your fingers dish out. This sturdy axe boasts a smart EverTune bridge system that keeps each string in tune no matter how aggressively you play, and a dark-sounding mahogany semi-hollow body with a flame maple top that's as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the ears. The BW-1 FMET's neck-through-body design yields plenty of sustain, and its Fishman Fluence pickup pairing forges a powerful tone that'll leave your ears thirsty for more.

ESP LTD's Versatile Semi-Hollow Guitar -- From Jazz to Rock
You won't stumble across too many semi-hollowbody axes that work well for more aggressive-sounding scenarios. This guitar can purr as gently as a kitten, yet fill the room when you go hard. When you take it easy, you'll certainly notice the inviting warmth and lingering sustain yielded by the BW-1 FMET's mahogany body. The maple neck brings in an appropriate amount of snap, so your sound will always find a way to cut through the mix.

Boatloads of Sustain
Aside from the BW-1 FMET's semi-hollowbody design, another aspect that'll add more sustain to your game is this axe's neck-through-body construction. It's immediately noticeable as soon as you pick up this guitar: neck-through-body axes have a very solid "one piece" feel to them, with the neck providing a more seamless transfer of sound to the body.

Maple Neck and Ebony Fingerboard
Get your fingers ready for some buttery fretboard action. This guitar's maple neck stretches 24 frets long over a smooth ebony fingerboard. Each fret boasts a comfortable action to make those speedy licks flow in seamless streams. This appendage is cut into a Thin U contour that makes for a comfy fit for fast changes and crafty chord progressions.

LTD Locking Tuners and EverTune Bridge
With the ESP LTD Ben Weinman BW-1 FMET, you can spend less time worrying about intonation issues and focus more on rocking -- thanks to this axe's LTD locking tuners and EverTune bridge design. The EverTune bridge utilizes an all-mechanical spring system that provides an individually attuned tension to each string, so once you find your tuning, it stays secure and on target. This system holds up well to anything from harsh string-bending techniques to atmospheric changes.
