ESP Guitars Introduces Bunny Brunel Signature Basses

Fusion bassist Bunny Brunel teamed up with ESP Guitars to unveil a new signature line at the 2015 Winter NAMM Show. The basses comes in two models: the BB-1004/QM, which is a four-string with a See-Thru Black Sunburst, and the BB-1005FL/QM, a fretless five-string with a Burnt Orange finish.

Both editions carry many of the same features, including an alder body topped with quilted maple, a maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard. Besides frets, the main difference in the basses lies in the neck profile. Where the four-string has a “C”-shape, the five-string has an asymmetric neck profile.

The basses are both fitted with an Aguilar MM-style pickup in the bridge position and a hum canceling J-pickup in the neck position. Electronics include an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp, while the hardware consists of a Hipshot bridge and tuners with an Xtender on the lowest string.

The ESP Guitars Bunny Brunel BB-1004/QM and BB-1005FL/QM basses will be shipping soon with price points of $1,299 and $1,399, respectively.
