Overview

The ESP LTD B-155DX Electric Bass from the B series features stunning beveled edges along the sides, an elongated upper horn and short lower horn, as well as a shapely headstock. Just like it's close relatives in the B series, the B-155DX is a short-scale (34") model with a bolt-on, U-shaped maple neck and light basswood body. Two ESP SB-4 pickups (bridge & neck) and the ESP ABQ-3 3-Band Active EQ will help you adjust the tones as you work your magic along the rosewood fingerboard. This 5-stringer also has simple dot inlays, 24 XJ frets, black nickel hardware, ESP tuners, a 45mm standard nut, and an ESP DB-4 bridge w/string-thru-body. All together, the ESP B-155DX is a beautiful bass with excellent sound to match. You'll be amazed it didn't cost you more.

Ok, but nothing special

By Frank

from Virginia Beach, VA

I owned one of these for about 2 years. I was not particularly impressed with this bass. The neck played slow. Didn't like the thin frets either. I did like the flatter fretboard radius. The eq was set wrong. The marked treble and mid were swapped. How do eq pots get put into the wrong spots? I changed them to the proper locations. Overall tone was kind of muddy. It lacked articulate zing, even with stainless steel strings. Entirely too much eq work at the amp to get some crispness - I play a ss amp into an 810 w/tweeter. Would probably do best with some flatwounds. Weightwise, it's rather light, and the body is comfortable. It is a handsome bass, but it looks better than it plays and sounds.

AWESOME

By shaq smith

from buffalo, ny

This is a good quality bass. I LOVE the design and the color. When playing the low B is bomming. This bass is way better than my yamaha 3 string. When playing the yamaha bass it tends to have a bad sound ending but not this bass. The three equalizer button are good for change the tone to fit the genre of the song.

1 flaw

By heavymetalrocker

from lewisberry, pa

This was my first five-string and I was really looking forward to the low B string. When I got it I loved the sound. No buzzing frets, and it stays in tune perfectly. But all that was eclipsed by the fact that the guitar's input didn't work properly. when you plugged it in it wouldn't send a signal to the amp at all. You had to twist it a couple times to get any sound at all. i found out that it wasn't the cable or the amp, so i was pretty ticked off. however i was able to get that fixed, and the bass has worked great ever since.
