OVERVIEW

Wicked looking but hand friendly.

The inspiration for the unique shape and design of the LTD F-105 bass from ESP would appear to be a mix of Route 66 Interstate signs and weaponry from an old Dungeons & Dragons manual. Forgoing the traditional, rounded apple bottom bass, the LTD F-series basses feature off centered curves, beveled edges, and points in places you won't see on any other guitar, let alone a bass. The double cutaway design makes the upper and lower horns appear to be a skeletal finger and thumb respectively. This particular ESP bass is a 5 string, with a thin "U" contoured maple neck and 35" scale that makes it accessible for all sizes of bass players. The body is made of basswood, with rosewood fingerboard for some brighter tones. These are captured by the dual ESP SB-5 pickups and can be reshaped with the ESP ABQ-2 2 band EQ. The ESP DB-5 bridge, tuners, and control knobs are all chrome making them stand out on the F-105 Bass Guitar's body, which is a standout design on it's own!

Case sold separately.

    Comments about ESP LTD F-105 5-String Bass Guitar:

    I purchased an open box model that honestly looks like new. I can't find the supposed blemishes detailed in the item description, so color me pleasantly surprised. Out of the box, the action is perfectly set up for me (nice and low, no fret buzz) and the tones coming out of it are fantastic. Despite there being no mid cut/boost, the sound coming out of my amp has lots of nice mid-range sweetness. The strings are bright and lively, and the neck is fast and comfy. I love this thing!!

    Awesome Bass for a Great Price

    Comments about ESP LTD F-105 5-String Bass Guitar:

    This will be a short one but this bass is an amazing instrument. The Tone is perfect, The body Shape is awesome, Pickups are just flatout awesome. This bass is perfect for metal bassists, and for me at least I play better with this bass over any other besides the Dean Demonator

    awesome bass at an affordable price

    Comments about ESP LTD F-105 5-String Bass Guitar:

    i just recently purchased this bass and as soon as i hooked it up i was amazed at the tone and feel it is very lightweight which is always a plus for me and it fits well with my playing style, also the two active ESP pickups only add to the awesome tone that i am already getting from my Crate BT220 amp all in all this is one great deal for anyone looking for an awesome sounding bass at an affordable price
