I have been playing this bass now for a good five months and I love it! I got an Ibanez Bass when I turned 15 and played it up till 5 months ago. Great bass but age was really setting in. 20+ years I have used it. So it was time.

I have an ESP LTD Guitar and I love it so thought I?d go with a bass. Read reviews and nailed it to this one... ESP LTD B-205SM. I am so glad I picked it up. The sound can go from super clean to dirty slap. This was also me going from a 4-String to a 5-String. I wanted to challenge myself and I?m glad I did. I don?t use the low B string to much but I have it when I need it.

If you?re in need of a new bass. I highly recommend this bass. I love it. I have so much fun playing it and it sounds amazing!

This is just a very nice guitar. Pretty well setup right out of the box. I am very pleased with the quality, playability, and sound from this guitar. I do not think you can do better without spending over twice the amount I paid for this fine guitar. Thank-you ESP!!

I don't play a ton of bass but I needed a 5 string to do some bass tracks and I was looking for something that would sound decent without breaking the bank. This bass is phenomenal; it's beautiful, it has a great sound, and it's very smooth to play. Exactly what I was hoping for and more.

I have been playing bass for 30 year, and working on them the entire time as well. If you are comfortable with adjusting the truss rod and setting the intonation, then there will be no issue with this bass. If you are alright with paying someone else to do those things, then no issue. If you do not know what I am referring to, or how to make those adjustments, or can't afford them, then I would look to another bass. After a few adjustments though, this bass really feels and sounds great!
