OVERVIEW

Finely crafted in Japan with active EQ.

Formerly called “ESP Standard”, all ESP E-II instruments are created at the ESP factory in Tokyo, Japan, and are designed for professional players who accept no compromises in tone, feel, or reliability for their guitars and basses. The new BTL Series basses (available in the 4-string BTL-4 and the 5-string BTL-5) offers a set of extraordinarily flexible tools for sculpting the perfect tones for any genre of music.

Available in an outstanding Black Natural Burst finish over an alder body with spalted maple top, the BTL basses offer a sonic signature powered by an Seymour Duncan SSB passive pickup set that’s paired with ESP’s own high-end active 3-band Cinnamon EQ system. The extraordinary versatility of the bass’s controls (volume with push-pull preamp bypass as well as balance and discrete controls for bass, midrange, and treble frequencies) allows you to use this bass for any gig, in any style.

High-end component include a Schaller straplock, Gotoh tuners, a Hipshot A style bridge, and a bone nut. Includes ESP hardshell form-fitting case.

FEATURES
  • Alder body with spalted maple top
  • Bolt-on 3-piece maple neck with ebony fingerboard and thin U profile
  • Seymour Duncan SSB soapbar pickups, 3-band EQ
