35-inch Scale Neck
The BTB's extra-long 35-inch neck scale offers tight, even tension with no flopping on the low end, and added sustain on the high strings. It also provides superior articulation, making it perfect for 7-string.
Neck-through construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability.
The BTB's much deeper cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets.
Stainless steel frets
The stainless steel frets are known for their bright tone, and they add player-friendly features, such as long durability and a smoothness to bend on.
A "zero" fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.
