This is a great bass for its price range, and just perfect for beginners, or for intermediate-level players who want to try out an ESP without spending too much money.
The guitar looks incredible. The sleek black finish is just perfect, and the overall construction quality is top-notch. I cannot find any defects on this thing. It sounds really nice too, with a very smooth tone to it. It isn't perfect, but it's about as good as you'll get at this price range. The 2 pickups (one split coil, one single) and the 3 control knobs give you plenty of sound options.
Overall, I love this bass, and I would recommend it to a friend.
