Acey Slade who plays for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, 3 band members from Slayer, Tommy Stinson from Guns N' Roses and Brett Tuggle are just a few from the long list of artists who make an ESP bass their instrument of choice. Want to add your name to this roster? Narrowing down your search should be your first step so let's take a look at your options.
ESP offers 4, 5 and 6+-string extended-range basses so knowing how many strings you want is important. A top-seller in the 4-string style is the LTD B-4E Bass Guitar. It has the "wow" factor with its contrasting wood detail and also plays as good as it looks. SB-4 pickups and a 3-band active EQ allow you to dial in a good solid tone whether you're playing jazz or rock. Want a basic instrument without the frills? Try the LTD B-50 Bass on for size. Extra-large frets make it easy to play and the split and single coil pickups provide a range of gutsy tone.
If a 5-string is what you need, we have plenty of those. With its unique shape, great range and 35" scale, the LTD F-105 5-String Bass Guitar is a great choice for bass players. Chrome tuners, control knobs and DB-5 bridge really stand out on the body for more visual appeal. Another option is the ESP LTD D-5 5-String Bass Guitar. The action is fast, low and spot on, the active EQ helps you dial down the range whenever needed and it comes set up straight out of the box. This guitar is an awesome neck-through 5-string at a great price.
For the ambitious bassist looking for more tonal range, there's the B-208FM 8-String Bass with Flamed Maple Top See-Thru. This beauty will definitely give you stage presence. Its flamed maple top is pleasing to the eye and it allows you to do harmonics that just aren't possible without a double-stringed instrument. With a flanger or chorus pedal, this thing would sing! The LTD B-206SM 6-String Bass is another excellent piece. It's the perfect blend of beauty and tone with its spalted maple top and ash body combined with ESP pickups with volume and balance controls, plus an active 3-band EQ for maximum adjustability.
As you can see, there's a large selection of ESP bass guitars. With different colors, wood choices, strings and design details, ESP doesn't make it easy to pick just one. But it doesn't have to be hard either. Feel free to use the filters along the left hand side to help refine your search. Just know that no matter which bass guitar you decide on, you can be confident that it's created with the level of expertise you can always expect from ESP.
