I think that looks like a decent set-up. The only changes I might suggest are to make sure you use different grips for the different bicep exercises (palms up, palms down, and neutral grip), and, although not necessarily every week, substitute in deadlifts or rack-pulls for DB rows (or if you're insane, do them both).
As for the over-training issue, I don't see this routine being a problem given the right caloric intake -- 2600 isn't a bad number but might be low for building mass. However, it's easier to make that call when we know your stats -- so what are your height, weight, bf%, etc?

so you're already pretty lean -- is building mass your primary goal or losing fat? are your macros along the lines of 40c/40p/20f or are you on a higher-fat diet like 10c/40p/50f?

Shoulders after triceps is going to limit your strength. It might be easier to combine triceps with shoulder than with back.

I'm trying to recomp/cut. I know I won't gain a lot of mass if any. My diet is more like 300g protein/ 210g carbs/ 76-85f or something like that.
