      It only sounds expensive.

      Small in price, but big on tone, the ESP LTD B-104 Bass is a perfect bass guitar for someone looking for an interesting looking axe that is not too over-the-top. Fat, beveled edges accentuate the basswood body's curves. Combined with the elongated upper horn, deep cutaway of the much smaller lower horn, unique angular cut at the end of the fretboard, shapely headstock, and chrome hardware, the LDT B-104 bass exudes high-class style. But all that flair would be nothing if it didn't have a sound to match. Not to worry because it definitely delivers a mean punch with dual ESP SB-4 pickups and ESP ABQ-2 2-band active EQ. The B-104 also features a thin, bolt-on, U-shaped maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, 24 XJ frets, ESP tuners, and ESP DB-4 bridge.

      Case sold separately.

        Blown Away!!!

        Comments about ESP LTD B-104 Bass Guitar:

        I can't tell you how surprised I am by this guitar. Who would've thought that I could get such a well built, solid-feeling bass for under this much?!?! This is the first bass I've ever purchased, so I have nothing to compare it to, other than my 5 other guitars, but man am I impressed with it. It really feels like it should have cost way more than what I paid for it.

        The neck is super smooth and fast. I only get some wrist strain when playing in the first few frets, but that's because I have small hands and I'm not really used to playing bass, just yet. My 7 string ESP causes the same pain. The controls work nearly perfectly (the bass knob sticks a bit, but that's no bigger) and the sound coming through it is totally on point. I was a little concerned with the color as what you see on a screen is rarely what you see in real life, but it's actually pretty nice. I wouldn't get a regular guitar in the same color, but it really works for the bass. It adds to the funk.

        I've only played it through my MPB/GarageBand, but will be picking up an amp within the next couple months. I've noticed a little bit of fret buzz, but that could be due to me just hitting strings too hard or in the wrong way (Still learning, here!). I'll eventually get it set-up the way I like and maybe change the strings, but what's on there works for me.

        All in all, this is an absolutely perfect bass for anyone just getting started. It feels great. It plays great. The value is just undeniable!

        First off, dont let the color or the basswood full you. It is a much darker purple in person and the grade of basswood gets amazing tone quality. I put in emg 35 hzs and this thing rips now. Even with out the emgs it almost sounded like a p/j bass. Esp forever!

        My name is Dan, and I'm addicted ESP

        Comments about ESP LTD B-104 Bass Guitar:

        OK ? admitting is the first step! I?ve played bass for many years before switching to guitar and back again. I always played basses with big, chunky necks ? Thunderbirds, Ibenez DB-800X, SG and umpteen-eleventy bazillion P basses and P knockoffs. When I picked up the ESP, LTD B-104 however, I was hooked. I really looked it over for fit and finish and loved everything I saw and I was amazed at how much I loved the feel. Played without an amp, this bass is very friendly; it?s smooth, fast and easy ? it fits very comfortably in your hands. Played through an amp?.hang on to your butt; this little puppy has teeth! The tone is incredible. The active electronics give the B-104 a wide tonal range that suits just about any kind of music ? especially the aggressive stuff!! I play everything from classic hard rock to hair band metal to modern alternative and I never have to touch my preamp ? I get everything I need from on-board ABQ-2 2-band active EQ. A tweak here and there and I?m ready for the next song! I can?t say enough good things about this bass ? I am hooked on ESP.

        EXCELLENT

        Comments about ESP LTD B-104 Bass Guitar:

        I have an Ibanez GSR200, and have been looking into getting this bass...I played it at a local music store, and was blown away. It is fantastic. The only beef I have with it, is that I play Death/Thrash metal, and the glossy purple isn't the best looking color... but as long as I get that out of the way, I love this bass.

        Comments about ESP LTD B-104 Bass Guitar:

        I purchased this bass at a local music store about 2 hours ago and man! I just stopped playing it, only to write a review about how amazing it is! Its much more beautiful in person, the price is outstanding(the store matched MF's price), and the sound is crisp, clear, and defined. And I'm even playing it out of a regular guitar amp! I'm going to purchase a good Peavy rig or something within this week so I'll most likely love it even more by then... BUY THIS BASS!!!

        you seriously can't go wrong with this bass.

        I purchased this bass back when I was 15 and just starting on the instrument, and let me tell you, this is still one of the best basses I've ever played. I now own 3 basses and this is STILL the one I go to time and time again to play shows. I purchased an ampeg BA115HP about 3 years ago and I can say if you pair this bass with a nice rig like that, you'll be able to compete with the best of 'em out there. my guitarists play on 5150's and this thing cuts RIGHT through. BUY. THIS. BASS.

        ESP does it again

        By Alucard817

        from Tampa Florida

        Comments about ESP LTD B-104 Bass Guitar:

        The GoodTone is phenomenal for such an inexpensive bass, The neck is blazing fast and the electronics are perfect, the active EQ gives You a tonal range that You can't get with passive basses.The BadOnly has one volume so You can't play with each pickup separately, but not a big deal.Other ThoughtsI don't know why MF has "short on scale" listed on the site as that's standard scale.The purple is a little brighter then what is pictured, so the B-104 actually looks nicer in person then on the site. The strings blow (too bright) so You may want to change them.Mine required ZERO set up out of the box other then a quick string change Simply put, active electronics, wicked fast neck and great tone make this a need to have bass.

        Worth more than new price.

        By Gluino

        from WV

        Comments about ESP LTD B-104 Bass Guitar:

        This bass is absolutely worth every penny. I find myself going to it more than American made basses sometimes. If you want a lightweight bass with a super thin neck and some growl, this is the way to go. The only reason it's not 5/5 is some neck dive. But it's so light that any good strap will negate that.
