Product Description
If you love the sharp contrast in color you get when you put different woods together, you'll love the design of the ESP LTD B-5E five-string bass guitar. As with its 4-string sibling, the 5-string B-5E has extremely beveled edges which allow you to really enjoy the distinct shades of light and dark where the mahogany body and ebony top meet. Adding to this differentiation of color is the even lighter 5-piece neck-thru-body maple/mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard.But fantastic looks aren't all you're getting. Ensuring you get the most of the tones these blends of woods provide are ESP SB-5 pickups (bridge and neck) with an ESP ABQ-3 3-band active EQ. A 34"-scale neck features an extra-thin, U-neck contour, making it easier for the average person to play. Other features include a 42mm standard nut, 24 XJ frets, ESP tuners, an ESP BB-604 bridge with string-thru body, and black nickel hardware.Case sold separately.

    3Nicely built, great craftsmanshp......except for the electronics
    By Dupuis
    I really liked this bass A LOT, in my opinion it was very well crafted, the wood was beautiful, it handled nicely but after about a week it blew a potentiometer (or some internal electronic part associated with it). One day while adjusting the treble knob, I heard a pop sound and it started buzzing. Rather than returning it, I liked it so much I considered gutting it and putting higher quality pick ups, EQ and other parts. But then I thought about it and if I did that I'd be up around cost of a much more sought after brand bass. So I regretfully returned it.
