Ben Weinman signature model
- a slightly cracked neck at the nut.
- NOTE: The neck was not snapped nor broken. The neck was fixed, refinished, and looks great.
- a hairline crack in the 1st fret inlay.
- It's barely noticeable.
- a few nicks at the bottom backside of the body.
- The other damage was not repaired since it's purely cosmetic and attempting a repair would have made the areas even more noticeable.
The BW-1 EverTune is one of the most unique and innovative high performance guitars in the LTD Signature Series. Created by Ben Weinman, a founding member of mathcore geniuses The Dillinger Escape Plan and a highly respected player whose combination of speed and feel has landed him on many "best of" guitarist lists, the BW-1's most notable feature is its EverTune constant tension bridge. It keeps the BW-1 in near perfect tune and intonation under almost any condition.
The BW-1 is a neck-through-body design at 25.5" scale, with a chambered mahogany body and flamed maple top, and binding on the body, neck, and headstock. It offers a fast three-piece thin U-shaped maple neck with an ebony fingerboard that includes 24 extra-jumbo frets. The sound of this guitar is powered by a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker active pickups with nickel covers. These pickups allow for a remarkable degree of sonic flexibility. Two separate voicings are selectable via the push-pull on the tone control (down for “Modern Active” tone, or up for “Modern Passive Attack”). This model utilizes a standard 9V battery and comes in See Thru Black finish.
"The EverTune bridge is a bridge system that keeps your strings in perfect tune basically no matter what. The beauty is that it actually works and it works consistently."
"One big element of the way I play, is that I pick very hard, but that also creates a scenario where when you're recording, you're pulling your strings sharp because you're hitting so hard. I found myself recording literally recording trying to tune to the way I play, as opposed to just tuning properly. I'd have to compensate, tune the E a little flat because when I picking it's pulling sharp, you know? NOT A PROBLEM WITH EVERTUNE. No matter how hard I hit, it's in tune."
"Another feature that makes it a versatile guitar that enable anybody to record something very quickly without messing around. Just grab, plug it in and record."
