OVERVIEW

An affordable 5-string that's well equipped and worth its weight in tone.

The B55 features an Agathis body, a 24-fret Maple/Rosewood neck, and jumbo frets that are easy to play. This is the perfect bass for the bassist looking to add the low B to their arsenal without spending too much. This is also a great bass for beginners trying to learn 5-string technique since the neck is surprisingly thin and easy to get around on.

          Comments about ESP LTD B-55 Electric Bass Guitar:

          I have considered a 5 string for years. I thought this could be my Mike Bloomfield, walk in kick off the snow and play bass. LOL, there is no way. This bass is way too nice so I am getting a gig bag for it. Still laughing because of how little I paid for it but I am curious how it will hold up over the years.
          Nice range of sound between the pick ups and tone control. Frets are smooth. The red burst is darker around the back and edges than in the picture. Actually better looking in my opinion. It is very well balanced. No neck diver.

            Comments about ESP LTD B-55 Electric Bass Guitar:

            I was just about to seal the deal on a Fender Squire bass to do some home recordings with and this went on sale. For the same price I decided to give this a try. Real glad I did. Not saying Fenders blow at all, just for a 5 string... its not metal enough!!! \m/
            But honestly I used to play an Ibanez SR years back and I liked the way it played and the way the body was contoured. My friend has ESP guitars that are built like tanks so I figured the bass would be a great buy, and it is. For a bottom of the line budget bass you would be a fool to not grab this. It's definitely worth the money and more!!!!!

              I always like to get a new instrument brand that I haven't had before, and this model from ESP is one of there beat kept secrets! Seeing other reviews about the sound and then finally hearing it for myself blew me away! This bass has some serious punch. Definitely worth more that the price! Pick one up and you'll see what I mean.
