        If metal is what you peddle, then you'll love to meddle with this bass guitar.

        Many people refer to guitars as "axes", and in the case of the AX-54, it really brings the metaphor to life. This ESP LTD bass was designed with extreme curves and pointed ends on the body, beveled side edges, and seemingly razor sharp hooks on it's double cutaway horns. By the looks of it, this electric bass guitar would be just as effective on a medieval battlefield as it would be in a Battle of the Bands.

        This short-scale (32") model is made of basswood, and has a thin, "U"-contoured maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Despite it's lightweight body, you won't lose the tone or the low-end thunder you desire thanks to an ESP SB-4 pickup with ATB-1 active tone boost circuit. Other features include a sturdy, bolt-on construction, DB-4 adjustable bridge, chrome hardware, 24 XJ frets, and a 40mm standard nut.

        I was a little disappointed.

        Comments about ESP LTD AX-54 Bass Guitar:

        The ESP AX-54 is a really cool looking bass, but I was a little disappointed with the playability. It rattles a bit too much and the action isn't great. The tone could be better on the low end, but if you prefer a higher tone it sounds great. I'm sure I can make a few adjustments to correct the issues I have with it. This item would be best as a relly good-looking starter bass. I just expected a little better from that particular manufacturer, but it's well worth the amount I paid for it. I would suggest it to others as a starter.

        amazing sound

        By facelessxpride

        Comments about ESP LTD AX-54 Bass Guitar:

        This bass is amazing I have had 5 others, one being acoustic the rest all elctric, this is the easiy to play and the best sounding, the only problem I see with it is that the pickup is in an awkward place so its hard to find a place to rest your thumb where its nothard to play and you still get the best sound. Other than that its great. beautiful sounding and simplistic.
