ESP Guitars Announces Two New Bunny Brunel Signature Basses

After launching the Bunny Brunel Signature Series at the Winter NAMM show, ESP Guitars took to the Summer NAMM show to expand the lineup with a pair of new models: the LTD BB-1005/QM/Black Aqua and the LTD BB-1005 QM/Burnt Orange. Both models are 5-string fretted basses, which fills a gap in the initial Brunel signature offering of a fretless fiver and a fretted four-string.

Each of the new models features neck-through construction, a quilted maple top, and an ebony fingerboard with 24 frets. The pickups are a MM/J configuration made by Aguilar, which are matched to the company’s OBP-3 preamp. Hardware includes a Hipshot A-Style bridge and Hipshot tuners with an extender on the lowest string.

The ESP LTD BB-1005/QM/Black Aqua and LTD BB-1005 QM/Burnt Orange basses will be available soon. A price point has not been announced, but is expected to be around $1,399 street.
