      Neck-thru design for tonal intensity!

      The inspiration for the unique shape and design of the LTD F-4E Bass Guitar 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.

      However, the ESP LTD F-4E differs from it's siblings in that it features a 5-piece maple/mahogany neck-thru-body design, a mahogany body with a flamed maple top, and an ebony fingerboard. All of the distinct, natural hues of these woods combine to give the axe an even more unique look than the single colored versions. It really is a feast for the eyes.

      The LTD F-4E has 4 strings, an extra thin "U" contoured maple neck, and its 35" scale makes it easier for bass players of all sizes to access the entire fretboard. As your fingers explore the 24 XJ frets your rhythms and melodies are snatched up by dual ESP SB-4 pickups and can be reshaped to your liking with the ESP ABQ-3 3 band EQ. This captivating axe also features an ESP BB-604 string-thru-body bridge, ESP tuners, and control knobs that are all black nickel, adding an extra dash of coloration.

        Fantastic tone right out of the box. Hits the low notes and makes everything rumble yet its clear and punchy with many different tone options. Sounds great from jazz riffs all the way to heavy metal without skipping a beat. Very highly recommended.

          Comments about ESP LTD F-4E Bass Guitar:

          I'm really a guitarist(30 yrs.)but I needed a bass for recoding purposes. I like the look, feel and sound of this instrument a lot. I use this bass for a variety of styles of music(fusion, rock, funk, blues) and it handles them nicely. The EQ lets me tighten up the sound but doesn't really alter it as much as some would say.

          This thing is a BEAST!!!!

          Comments about ESP LTD F-4E Bass Guitar:

          Okay, so I got this BEAUTIFUL guitar a couple days ago and all I can say is that I've been completely blown away by it. First of all, it sounds brilliant, you can get anything from a smooth, warm jazz tone to an ultra bright slap and anything in between, even running through a junk behringer 4x10. But it doesn't stop there, its got a smoking body to match its fantastic tone. The picture doesn't do this thing justice, the wood has been shaped into the perfect blend of smooth and sharp and the contrast in the woods just bump its beauty up that much more. That, along with being perfectly dialed in from the factory make for a killer deal, especially at such a great price.

          I have owned mine for about a month now and the tone you get with the active EQ is just great. I play in a metal Experimental band and we play in drop C and there is just a little buzzing but not to bad. Good buy for the price and the when you get it, it just looks way better than the picture does

          Comments about ESP LTD F-4E Bass Guitar:

          At first thought for most players, ESP's are meant only for metal and hard rock. I purchased this bass today after firstly falling in love with its gorgeous looks, pictures do not give this instrument justice, it has to be seen in person. It plays super fast and has a wide range of tones thanks to the 3 band eq. It's a wonderful bass for the money and offers a wide variety of sounds for all players.

          Not bad at all

          Comments about ESP LTD F-4E Bass Guitar:

          I got this bass after I graduated, I play in a death metal band and really there's quite a bit you can do with this guitar with the 3-Band EQ. You can really get about any sound you like out of it, I'm not too great of a player but for what I need to do, this guitar can support. I played a Squire MB before and when I plug this in there is a significant difference, which I expect, and as far as looks go this guitar is stunning. A good guitar for a mid level bassist.
