ESP LTD BB-1004 Quilted Maple - See Thru Black Sunburst
Special Order

A Bass as Versatile as Bunny Himself

Chick Corea bassist and jazz fusion great Bunny Brunel partnered with ESP to bring his newest signature instrument to life. The ESP LTD Bunny Brunel bass's maple-on-alder body is light and balanced with bold body contouring for unfettered access to high frets. Bunny didn't want a low end that choked a mix. So the Aguilar humbucker and single-coil pickup pair take up just the right amount of ensemble space, with a throaty and forward midrange that helps parts stand out on their own. The active 3-band EQ reflects Bunny's eclectic needs, which range from the smooth grooves of Ziggy Marley and CAB to the nimble-fingered funk lines of Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock - a true workhorse for the gigging musician.

ESP LTD BB-1004 Bunny Brunel Signature Series Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Built to Bunny's demanding specifications
  • Unhyped Aguilar pickups blend with the band
Built to Bunny's demanding specifications

From the look of the quilted maple top to the feel of the ebony fingerboard, the ESP LTD Bunny Brunel bass is the height of luxury for the serious bassist. ESP's radical body stylings, crafted from lightweight alder, turned out to be the right fit for Bunny at this stage in his career. The exaggerated horns provide access to all 25 frets for smooth lead playing. And the 3-piece maple neck is built to provide stability for the touring musician.

Unhyped Aguilar pickups blend with the band

Longtime session player Bunny Brunel is particular about how his bass sits in an ensemble. The passive MM neck single-coil pickup and 4J HC bridge humbucker each begin with a natural, modern tone that's easy to slip into a mix. The active Aguilar preamp with 3-band EQ is where the player can dial in extra lows and high-end sparkle when the occasion demands. If versatility is a top priority, Sweetwater bassists recommend taking the ESP LTD Bunny Brunel bass for a spin.

ESP LTD BB-1004 Bunny Brunel Signature Series Bass Guitar Features:
  • Designed in part by Chick Corea/Stevie Wonder bassist Bunny Brunel
  • Tones and performance to accommodate Bunny's many styles
  • Unique body style is bold, balanced, and comfortable
  • Breathtaking quilted top hints at the quality throughout
  • Alder body is lightweight with a clear, full-bodied sound
