ESP Electric Bass
The first step to choosing your perfect ESP bass is to decide what your personal needs and goals are. If you're a metal thrasher in search of dramatic stage presence, look at some of the edgier designs like the AX-104. For a classier wood finish, look at the B-4E or its extended-range big brother, the B-5E. To find your perfect personalized sound, think about the tonewood each bass is made of. Do you like the bright tones of basswood, found in basses like the B-104 and B-105, or the warmth of the Stream-204's mahogany? How about something exotic in both string count and tonewood, the 6-string merbau D-6? The wide variety of basses from ESP can cater to any taste.
ESP also makes it easier than ever to get your hands on a signature instrument designed by one of the bassists who have grown to love their instruments over the years. Take Anthrax bassist Frank Bello's FB-204 model for instance. It's a 34" scale bass with a basswood body and maple neck, loaded with 21 extra-jumbo frets. The LTD FB-204 is the kind of bass that calls out to you to pick it up and play, delivering rumbling tones through its ESP-designed pickups. Whether that or another model is the right one for you, there's no going wrong with a signature ESP bass.
It's no secret why so many acclaimed musicians are clamoring to add ESP electric basses to their collections. These are rock-solid instruments that provide serious versatility no matter your skill level or style. Join the family of satisfied ESP bass owners and you'll have no trouble seeing how they've earned their respect from the music community.
