Great for price

Comments about ESP LTD B-55 5-String Bass Guitar:

Bought a month ago. Quality construction and great sound, However came out of crate with a slightly high 14th fret. Was not a quick fix, but can be adjusted with right tooling and knowlage. Shipped with two volumes and one master volume (active adjustment) No Tone control so that is a draw back. play thru a GK with 4/10 1/15. Other basses are a 1982 Ibanez RS824BB and a Fender re-issue Tele Bass. ESP is a great 5 string addition to the arsenal

Affordable

Comments about ESP LTD B-55 5-String Bass Guitar:

Ive been playing guitar for a bit and i wanted to play bass. I decided that sense i already had experience with a stringed instrument i would go with a five string because i am into metal and i like having options. At first there was wicked fret buzz on the b and e string, after waiting for the strings to settle in and raising the action it went away. I can even drop it 4 half steps now. It has an OK sound. And an OK sound at this price point is great. I have it plugged into a fender rumble 75. Still, i wish i had more to work with when it came to tone. This is a beginner bass in 5 string form. Basically what im saying is you will deff want to buy a better bass in the future when start figure out how it works, Ive been looking at some 4 string models because i rarely use that B string. But for now this is good enough for me and it gets the job done. I would recommend this to a beginner and not an advanced 4 string player looking to go to a 5 string. Ive had this thing since august and its now December, so ive gotten time to know it.

awesome bass

By Andrew

from Medina, OH

Comments about ESP LTD B-55 5-String Bass Guitar:

I've had this bass for almost a year now and I still can't find anything wrong with it. The P & J pickups are perfect for me because I play a wide range of music I play in school and in my own band. It's very sturdy and holds up to the abuse I've put it through (I've accidentaly rammed the headstock into a couple doorways but the paint hasn't even chipped). This bass is an EXTREAMLY good value and sounds as good as it looks. The gloss finish is hard to clean.

Amazing Bass!!!

By Deyquan

from New York

Comments about ESP LTD B-55 5-String Bass Guitar:

I purchased this bass a couple of days ago and i am absolutely amazed with the quality of this guitar. Ive been playing bass for over a year now and decided to buy a 5 string. Ive look and tested models from Ibanez and peavey, and this guitar sounds equally as good as models for a fraction of the price. The pickups arent active however you can get a monster tone from the active tone adjustments(2 volume knobs and 1 master tone). This guitar also has the best low b string ive ever heard and is perfect for the addition of effects. This is also a very good looking guitar ideal for any type of playing style however, its gloss coated agathis body and rosewood fretboard requires constant cleaning to maintain that "just bought" look. I have no overall complaints for this guitar and i highly reccomend it if your looking to get a 5 string.

This Bass Rocks!!!!!!

By Andy

from South Bend, IN

Comments about ESP LTD B-55 5-String Bass Guitar:

I bought this bass for myself on Fathers Day two years ago, and it is still my favorite bass. It has a very easy to play neck, nice and smooth. Plenty of access to the upper register and wide enough even for fat fingers like mine. The action may need to be adjusted a little depending on your style of playing, and it needs better strings but other than that it's ready to go right out of the box. This is a great 5-string and would be worth it at even a much higher price. I have played other basses that were three or four times the price and they just sounded tinny and lame compared to this thing! You MUST consider this bass if you are looking for a 5-string. Well worth it.
