I dont know where to start...
This model is present in the ESP factory for years, and I have to tell you that I wanted this model for more than 5 years. Eventually I got it - in 5 string version. Its a beauty! My friends were sceptical about buying this bass because it looks good. But after they have seen it..they agreed with me :)
It has a very good finish, good quality hardware and great sound. The EQ puts the bass in the versatile category. By setting the knobs you can get a fat, punchy sound or one with presence in the mix. Good for finger and pick players.I think that for recordings will be amazing, just thinking that you can get the sound before recording, not needing any other additional mixing.
Active pick ups, Neck-Through, mahogany body. One of the most beautiful guitars I have ever played with!

Just wow
AhmaDA, 15.09.2019
This is the second bass I have ever bought. My first one was an ltd as well and considering how long it lasted me, I decided to stick to what worked for me the last time.

And I have zero regrets. The F series always plays like a dream and this specific bass has pretty much everything I could want in a good 5 string bass. It sounds great and it plays like a dream. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a budget friendly 5 string.

Fenomenal
17.03.2015
A beautiful peace of instrument art. Powerful, nice sound, great to play. Feels good in my hands.

One big minus though, a such huge piece of mahogany with a long neck is very HEAVY! Already after a few minutes playing my left shoulder and back is starting to hurt. If you have a lot of problems with your back or shoulders in general, you may consider choosing an other, lighter bass than this. I have now ordered a Planet Waves 50DARE000 Guitar Strap, maybe it will help a little bit to spread the weight over both shoulders.
