Twenty years after the ESP 400 series instruments were introduced, they are still among the most sought-after basses. ESP is issuing a limited run of Vintage Plus bass guitars created with a distressed finish to mimic years of natural wear and tear. The Vintage-4 looks like a well-played classic but has the modern refinements that improve its playability and feel.

Comments about ESP Vintage-4 Bass Guitar:
One of my biggest mistakes when I started playing bass was passing on a ESP 400 P bass. The bass played and sounded amazing but it was Salmon Pink. I was into metal at the time and being young and vain I passed on it but always regretted it. These new ones are just as good if not better than I remember them; extremely well built, super tight neck pocket and an awesome P type neck (though not as fat as a Fender and with a flatter radius board). Tone is amazing and versatile with the P/J configuration and the distressed finish makes them feel like an old friend and lessens the pain that you get with the first dings . Some of my favorite bass tones are from Jeff Ament on the early Pearl Jam albums and his original P/J Bass he used for those had a fretless ESP 400 series neck on it.
