        I've been playing bass for 25 years or more. I needed a cheap bass to leave at the band's jam shack instead of leaving my expensive basses. I looked at everything I could find in this price range. I read all reviews and this one stood out as the best in that price range. I'm super happy with this purchase. It played great out of the box but I set it up to my specs and BAM, I have a really cool bass for cheap. The pickup is good. I figured I'd have to change it but I'm leaving it stock. The pots are mini's but work fine. Green chiclet cap. I'll replace the electronics as needed. Hopefully not anytime soon. Tuners are solid. 3 piece plank body, heavier than I thought but not too heavy. Even the stock strings weren't bad. Awesome sustain with the 6 bolt extended neck and high mass bridge. I got the see thru brown satin. Beautiful. The extended neck between the fretboard and pickup is brown, not black like in the pictures. The headstock is also brown not black. The very tip of my headstock has a small crack but is easily repairable. Do not hesitate to buy this bass. Whether you are a seasoned pro looking for a good cheap one or a student looking for a good cheap easy playing bass, this is a great deal. More bass than I had hoped. Gigbag, truss rod tool and bridge tool included. I'm very well pleased.

        Beautiful bass guitar. Simple design and easy to play. Pretty good tone.

        Perhaps it got damaged when it was shipped though. Really bad fret buzz on the first fret of all four strings that rendered those frets unplayable.

        Returned. :(

          My first bass. Always (35 years) used my old Traynor Bass Master for my guitars but seeing this bass at such a low price and after reading the reviews, I couldn't resist buying my amp a friend. No regets! This is a beautiful, quality instrument and the price is unbelievable. It was TUNED right out of the box! Plays beautifully and no fret buzz on this one. Love it!

            Comments about ESP LTD B-10 Electric Bass Guitar:

            This is nice beginner bass. I got it in white color, and it came in well-packed and quickly. The bass plays well with no fret buzz. It looks very good with no finish flaws It sounds very good specially for rock music. I like the simplicity of this bass. It comes with a soft cover case which works well as a dust cover, but you will need a better gig bag with more padding or a hard case if you are planning to take out of your house.

            Comments about ESP LTD B-10 Electric Bass Guitar:

            Hold on, what?
            I've played bass guitars worth more than this in the thousands, and this has a comparable sound to even them. As a professional musician I didn't have high expectation buying this. I was referred to by a friend and I have to say I'm really starting to question the price behind my other bass guitars. This thing is perfect. At first there is minor fret buzz but a minor adjustment to the tress rod and this thing is worth more than what I paid for it. It is a little heavy for those who wouldn't be used to the feel but overall this bass will see you through till you can splash on overpriced bass guitars. I'm lost for words.

                In my opinion, this is definatly one of the best basses for beginners, experianced, whoever. I had been told that ESP was a great brand to use due to their durability and great feel and im so glad i took their word for it. Its a great bass and i will continue using ESP models in the future.

                Great bass to play. Looks great and has a simple design, that looks very nice. Sound is nice.

                Just had to raise the strings a little to get rid of the fret buzz. I think if you get this bass professionally set up, it will be a fantastic instrument.
