If metal is what you peddle, then you'll love to meddle with this bass guitar.
Many people refer to guitars as "axes", and in the case of the AX-54, it really brings the metaphor to life. This ESP LTD bass was designed with extreme curves and pointed ends on the body, beveled side edges, and seemingly razor sharp hooks on it's double cutaway horns. By the looks of it, this electric bass guitar would be just as effective on a medieval battlefield as it would be in a Battle of the Bands.
This short-scale (32") model is made of basswood, and has a thin, "U"-contoured maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Despite it's lightweight body, you won't lose the tone or the low-end thunder you desire thanks to an ESP SB-4 pickup with ATB-1 active tone boost circuit. Other features include a sturdy, bolt-on construction, DB-4 adjustable bridge, chrome hardware, 24 XJ frets, and a 40mm standard nut.
