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
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."
