It's actually smaller than you think...

IN SUMMARY - it's very small, light, and plays well. Change the strings and it's a great little bass.

Features: 4/5 - it doesn't have all that much, but what it has is good. The gig bag was a nice addition but I'd use a sturdier one.

Sound: 3/5 - perfectly serviceable, but I recommend a quick set-up to change from the out-the-box configuration. Might be a 4 if it came with different strings.

Quality: 5/5 - seems well put-together, feels very nice to play, is very small/light.

I bought this looking for a short-scale bass, and I did read the dimensions, so I knew it would be small: but this thing is REALLY small - I can actually fit it into a case for a short-scale guitar. I guess that part was a pleasant surprise; but I'm a small person (5'6" and very scrawny) and it almost looks too small for me, so if you have an imposing physique or you're just a big person this bass will look funny/comical on you.

Because it's so small, it can be difficult to find comfortable positions to slap/pop, and it takes a bit of getting used to. There's not much room to maneuver if you like to move about.

Having said that, it plays really nicely. Neck feels really thin - if you play with your thumb over you can actually probably use the A string reliably and without too much difficulty. Strings might feel quite close together for some but I like them compact - again, it's really small. It's balanced well and I've not noticed any neck dive at all, although I do have a pretty good strap for that.

The strings it comes with are round-wound and the action is fairly low, which can lead to things being quite buzzy sometimes if you're not careful, although with some set-up it should sound nice. I gather some players actually like a tiny bit of a buzz, so maybe you won't need to change it. Funnily enough, the pickups don't really respond at all to the buzz, so it's not a problem plugged in.

It sounds pretty good - there's not much in the way of variety with the one tone knob, but it gets the job done. The mids and highs don't seem over-exaggerated as the knob is turned up but it does sound a little brighter - with the tone knob set to 0 it's quite mellow. I always run it through a bunch of effects, but I didn't feel like my dry signal was lacking anything or stilted in any way. If I had to criticize I'd say maybe the low-end felt a bit thin sometimes, but the whole tone of the instrument is generally fairly well-rounded.

The gig bag is perfectly acceptable for keeping it clean, but it's one of those thinly-padded ones, so perhaps not the best choice for actual gigging. The zips strike me as the kind that might snap off if you were packing in a hurry, too - but if you're just taking it to rehearsals or something it might be alright.

I think I'd recommend it, but be warned that it's probably slightly smaller than you imagine it is. If you just want something tiny to practice on or travel with, it's certainly very light.

Some additional rough measurements to help you out:
Top of head - bottom of body: 39"/99cm
Depth of the body (thickest): 1.5"/3.9cm

Flok S, 17.01.2017
Ich habe mir den ESP LTD B-4 JR als Zweit-Bass besorgt, da ich einen einerseits sehr Kompakten Bass haben wollte der auch nicht viel Kostet.
Und meiner Erfahrung, nach einem halben Jahr, hat sich der Bass wahrlich bewährt - eine gute Anschaffung.

Der Bass misst in seiner Gesamtheit 99 cm und zusammen mit dem mitgelieferten Gigbag 104 cm.
Was sehr angenehm ist für alle die oft Flugreisen unternehmen und ihren treuen Begleiter nicht missen wollen.
Daher ein großes + da er mit diesen Maßen (bei den meisten Airlines) problemlos als Handgepäck mit in die Kabine genommen werden kann.

Weiters positive sehe ich:
+ Optisch schöner Bass, der auch
+ Angenehm leicht und auch gut
+ Für Anfänger geeignet ist, da er als Shortscale eine
engere Bund-Aufteilung wodurch die Töne leicht zu
greifen sind

Einige Mankos sind:
- Die Saiten, die sind erwartungsgemäß schlecht hier
empfiehlt sich auch gleich neue zu besorgen
~ Das Gigbag, eigentlich ein annehmbares Teil, erfüllt
seinen Job und hat eine Tasche für etwaigen Kleinkram
Doch wenn man da zuviel reinfüllt dann drückt der
Reißverschluss innen gegen den Kopf vom Bass,
einerseits nicht gut für den Bass andererseits wird
dabei mit der Zeit auch der Reißverschluss kaputt

Alles in allem ein guter Bass der auch ideal für Unterwegs und auch längeren Auslandsaufenthalt nach Flugreisen geeignet ist.
