Love this Bass

11.05.2016
I really belive that the ESP LTD B-4E NS was the best choice for this price range :
A beautifully made bass, excellent finish, light weight, very comfortable feel ? a very easy instrument to play. The humbucker tone is fat and rich and the tonal options of the active EQ is impressive. The 5 piece maple through-neck gives this bass great sustain and the ebony fretboard looks great as well ? a very fast neck with excellent access to higher frets. I would strongly recommend this bass to anyone, excellent quality and good stock electronics at an amazing - unbeatable price.

The best cost/benefit you can get!

Ricardo886, 28.03.2015
That´s the best bass you can get in this price range!
The neck is very thin and comfortable, with a good access on high frets as it´s a neck through body. What impresses me also is that there were no buzzing at all. The fretwork was very good and it was all levelled.
You have the option of putting your strings through body, through the bridge or even mixing them, having E and A through the body and D and G through the bridge for an example.
The tuners are very stable and if the strings are installed correctly, it wont detune!
The electronics made by ESP (of course, don´t expect an Aguilar/Seymour Duncan in a 500~600E bass) are very good and make the intended job.
With a few upgrades, this bass can beat a lot of custom basses that would cost 3x this price!
