A bass for Mr. Natural.

The B-4E Bass Guitar has beveled edges that reveal the contrast between the mahogany body and ebony top for a gorgeous, natural look all its own. Adding to this contrast of woods is the 5-piece neck-thru-body maple/mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard.

Ensuring you get the most from the tones these wood combinations provide are ESP SB-4 pickups (bridge and neck) with an ESP ABQ-3 3-band active EQ for extended tone shaping. Dial in more brightness on pop tunes or get more kick on the low-end when you're getting down and dirty on heavier tunes.

The neck is 34" scale with an extra-thin contour, and has a 42mm standard nut, and 24 XJ frets. Details include ESP tuners and an ESP BB-604 string-thru-body bridge in black nickel.
Case sold separately.

    Great sound Great look amazing performance. This bass has it all. A differant natural look will set you appart from the other bass players of the night and you will always have ppl asking you where you got it. I live in hamilton ontario and there is only one esp dealer for the city and usually ppl ask me all about it.

    Amazing value

    By LastSalomnMan

    from St. John's, NL

    Comments about ESP LTD B-4E Bass Guitar:

    After considering some Ibanez and Schecter basses in the same price range I decided on the B-4E just because of overall quality and construction. This bass is beautiful, with mahogany body and ebony top with a 5 piece maple and ebony neck; everything about it makes me wonder ESP can sell it so cheap. It is a very easy instrument to play, very fast smooth neck with excellent access to higher frets. As far as electronics go, it has ESP passive pickups and a 9v active preamp that gives you full tonal control. I put a set of EMG DC's in mine with an Aguilar preamp and switched to 18v, and overall it still cost me less then a "higher end" bass would have. I would strongly recommend this bass to anyone, excellent quality and good stock electronics at an unbeatable price.

    More bang for the buck

    Comments about ESP LTD B-4E Bass Guitar:

    I've been playing bass guitar for about 4, almost 5 years now. And right now I own a standard fender Mexican jazz bass. But with the price increase by fender, this bass is top of the line quality, the LTD B-4E I mean. The solid all one piece body is nice, along with the 5 piece wood. The neck is very slim, natural gloss, my fingers feel as if they are gliding across the back of the neck, the bridge is heavy, meaning good, string thru body feature is a plus. great tone, solid playing. And for what they price this, it's a steal for real. This plays just as nice, if not better as any american fender I would play. I think its better then a music man bass. Excellent, deff. check this one out.

    INSANE VALUE

    By supermallard

    from St. Paul, MN

    Comments about ESP LTD B-4E Bass Guitar:

    I saw this bass ten months ago and bought it. I was a little terrified after that since I hadn't planned on getting a new bass, but then it showed up. Web pics don't do it justice, it looks amazing in person. The neck / body layers of different woods is just awesome. One quick note - the only reason I took points off for quality is actually a problem I've noticed with my other LTD (a five year old EC-300) and my former bass player dealt with on both of his LTD basses: pots. The pots on these guitars will loosen up on you at some point. It is annoying, yes, but also a very easy fix, allen wrench, pop the knob off and tighten the pot. Back to the quality of this bass - a good friend has a music man stingray - costing more than twice what this one does, and this LTD is of the same quality. Also this bass does have the re-enforced neck / head joint as many LTDs do, another plus. Also, the bridge design is very cool - you can string through the bridge OR the body for thicker tone / higher tension at lower tunings. The tone, the sound - serious tone shaping capabilities here - 3 band eq plus a volume and balance knob - the knobs with the click in the middle. The active pickups sound great! I run this bass directly into a Hartke vx3500 combo, and I can get any bass sound I want (except distortion, no bass fx yet). Go for a classic bass sound, or dial the balance and treble for the Tool / Justin Chancellor sound. You can get that type of tone definition from this bass. Overall this bass has value, when I bought it I didn't find another one with the features / price ratio. stop drooling and get it!

    Better Than I Expected

    By Made

    from California

    Comments about ESP LTD B-4E Bass Guitar:

    Very good bass. I was using a variety of different basses and when I got this one I thought that the sound was a lot cleaner and cut through more than a lot of other basses. Everything was great about this bass, I would recommend it for any musician, it has a nice feel for the body size and the neck. There was only one problem about 1 month after using it, one of the wires was a bit chewed up and I had to send it back, but that was the only bad part about this bass.

    ESP LTD B-4E is the best value around

    By rteisher

    from Muncy, PA

    Comments about ESP LTD B-4E Bass Guitar:

    I began playing bass seriously about 3 years ago, & I started-out on a entry-level ESP B-Series bass. I loved how well that one played & felt for the little $ that it actually cost, so I've been eyeing the upgrade, this baby, for a long time. I finally ordered it here, and it arrived two days ago. Again, ESP has not disappointed. The photo here really doesn't do this bass justice, it looks so much sexier & more classy in person. I didn't know if the 3-band EQ was going to be that big of a difference from my last ESP which had a 2-band active EQ, but there is a noticeable benefit in how much more you can shape your tone. And of course, as with all of the B-series basses I've played, it feels super-comfortable around your shoulders, & the neck plays like a dream. That's really the most important thing in my opinion (especially on neck-thru guitars), & this bass plays better than any other bass I've picked up, no lie. I'm not a huge fan their guitars, but ESP basses are the best!

    Comments about ESP LTD B-4E Bass Guitar:

    This is the smartest buy by far. this bass plays and sounds like a bass twice its price. Not to mention it looks very classy the pic in this ad does no justice to the real thing. you would be an idiot to not buy this bass.

    exellent bass

    By Garlak

    from Pennsylvania

    Comments about ESP LTD B-4E Bass Guitar:

    I baught this bass a few weeks ago and im very impressed. Its very comfortable and the features are astounding for such a low cost. Ive been playing it through an old 1960's stero (im saving up for an Ampeg)and it still sounds great. I got to play it through an Ampeg B1RE1 and an 810 once and it was amazing. Nice sustain and the pick ups are nice for ESP's. The active EQ ads a nice touch. The bass comes with SIT srtings, which were supringly nice for factory. However, if you like to drop tune, i do recommend you buy a higher gage than the factory stings, because i noticed some buzzing when i droped it to D standard. and the tension (or lack there of) is unberable at drop C.
