New B-Stock w/ 90-day ESP Warranty. We are an authorized ESP Dealer.
This instrument has a little bit of buff-through in the finish stain on the headstock volute and a pair of light-colored spots further down the neck near the body joint. These are all perfectly smooth to the touch and purely cosmetic in nature. We have included close-up photos so that you can take a look!
Javier Reyes is one of the most innovative guitarists in progressive rock today. He consistently pushes the boundaries of how the electric guitar can be approached in his band Animals As Leaders and in his solo work. A master of the 8-string guitar, Javier had detailed input into the creation of the LTD Signature Series JR-608. This combination of eight strings with a five-piece walnut/maple/padauk neck-thru-body design at 27” baritone scale allows you to explore a huge range of pitch on a single instrument.
Its features also include Graphtec Black Tusq nut, a Macassar ebony fingerboard with a custom inlay pattern, and glow in the dark side markers. It offers a swamp ash body with the resulting articulate sound, along with a figured quilted maple top. Top-tier components on the JR-608 include a Hipshot bridge with string-thru-body setup, and a set of Javier’s new Fishman Javier Reyes Open Core Signature Pickups, with a mini-switch to engage its multiple voicings.
