Great sound for the money
Bazzaria, 29.03.2018
Just got a new B204SM and am very happy with it. The sound quality is excellent for the money. Not as punchy and maybe a bit more boomy at the lower end than my Fender jazz copy but I guess thats to be expected given the twin powered humbusckers installed. Its very easy to play and slap.

It may need to be set up better as there is a small amount of fret buzz from the lower two strings but maybe I am just being too heavy on it, it definitely needs a lighter touch than the Fender Jazz bass copy I have been playing.

Build quality and QC appear to be excellent and I have no complaints there.

One small quibble I have, and its not really a complaint at all, is that it appears to be quite heavy given the compact body shape but perhaps thats just because I am used to a basswood body and Ash is obviously heavier and better quality.

Overall, very much worth the money and I am glad I didnt go for the Ibanez I was considering.

Nice looking bass but not painfull to play
Leftystrings, 04.03.2020
I bought this bass because it looked good (both visually and specs). As a left-handed player it very difficult to get an affordable and good playing instrument.

I feel the ESP LTD B204SM has some serious shortcomings that made me decided to return the product. The main shortcoming is that the bass has no sloping ridge to put your arm on. This results in a painful lower arm due to cut of blood circulation. Also I feel wood used on the fretboard is very coarse and rough. Not something you would expect from a bass in this price range.

The tuner have some serious gift or wiggle and don't feel very solid, although the strings stay in tune.

Too bad it looks like promising instrument only to be let down by poor design choices.

Great Choice
Ygvyth, 22.07.2015
Very good Bass guitar

This guitar sounds great, looks great, weight a lot... yes its quite heavy.
Very slim and thin neck fits to players with smaller hands. Guitar is very flexible for tuning, and very sturdy.
Active electronics are good quality and gives nice boost. EMG type pickups gives good tone for every type of music you would like to play. From Metal, to Rock, to some blues,jazz stuff.
Best choice for beginers, and mid-advanced guitarists.
First of all, give this guitar time to learn how it sounds, how it feels, and you will be happy.
Another very important fact. Its ESP LTD !!
