ESP LTD B-206SM 6-String Bass Spalted Maple
The ESP LTD B-206SM 6-String Bass Spalted Maple is built for beautiful performance, looks and tone. ESP crafted this bass with an ash body and satin-finished spalted maple top, providing optimal resonance, clarity and warmth. The combination of tone woods and 5-piece maple/rosewood neck gives this six-string bass outstanding tone and playability.
Powerful Pickups Deliver Versatile Tone
The ESP LTD B-206SM features SB-6 neck and bridge humbuckers that deliver modern, low-noise tone. An active 3-band EQ provides maximum tonal control, allowing you to shape your tone with the turn of a knob. Roll off the highs for a warmer, rounded tone or boost the mids for extra cut and punch. The tonal possibilities are endless.
Fast Neck Promotes Fluid Playing
The ESP LTD B-206SM has a bolt-on maple/rosewood neck with a thin U profile that plays fast and comfortably. A 350mm radius rosewood fretboard responds quickly and accurately to facilitate fluid solos and riffs. Twenty-four extra-jumbo frets provide ample space for wide bends and vibrato. The maple/rosewood neck construction provides a balanced tone with articulate highs, tight lows and a focused midrange.
Striking Looks and High-End Components
A spalted maple top gives the ESP LTD B-206SM a gorgeous yet understated look normally found on much more expensive basses. Black nickel tuners, knobs and a string-through bridge complement the spalted maple top. The bridge adjusts to any playing style, whether you prefer a high action for upright bass-like tone or low action for speedy playing.
Versatile Six-String Bass for Gigging and Recording
With pro features and components usually reserved for high-end basses, the ESP LTD B-206SM six-string bass is ideal for gigging, recording and practice. The balanced tone, fast neck and flexible electronics make this bass suitable for any genre from rock to jazz to metal.
