The sound off the bass surprised me. It doesn't sound like a bass that would cost only a bit over 400 euros.

Pros:
-Good sound quality, awesome tones
-Beautiful
-All good except some little things:

Cons:
- Noisy pickups when using treble, boosting treble causes great hiss
Cut treble max. to minimize hiss
-Poor B-string, it's good enough but definitely not as good as the other strings

The overall feeling of the bass is pretty good and I am definitely liking the sound. Great tones for slap, great tones for finger play and partly muted playing. 9.5/10 - in it's price range, can't think of a better choice.

Absolutely great bass

Alexander605, 27.10.2011
In a music store, I noticed this bass immediately. And after the play I was totally excited. The processing is absolutely great. The days that came from Indonesia only a few things have long been over. The processing is absolutely perfect and the bass looks beautiful. All those who see him are instantly enthusiastic.

Only from the setup I was disappointed. Since I had to do a lot before the instrument was playable. I had not expected that from ESP. I also own a Schecter guitar, which comes from the same factory and the setup was absolutely perfect.

The strings I exchanged for DADDARIO ECB 81-5 CHROMS and that is totally cool. The sound of these flatwounds is equally bright as with roundwounds but the play feeling is absolutely great. De bass has a nice deep and an honest clear high. In the studio it is my favorite bass because he has a very nice sound. On the stage he could have a bit more pressure but there my Hartke Bass Attack helps out well.
If I bought this bass again, then I would opt for the 6 saiter because I already have another 5 saiter.

For the money, it is absolutely a top class product even if you have to screw it around even a bit. Maybe this was just a random hit. I would recommend everyone to this bass and buy it again immediately.
