Versatile Bass

Featuring a double-cutaway design with an extra-thin “U” neck contour and 24 extra-jumbo frets, these ESP LTD electric basses are primed for fast, aggressive playing—yet capable of suiting virtually any style. The five-piece maple/rosewood bolt-on neck and ash body ensure maximum thump and sustain, while the three-band active EQ gives you control over bass, mids, and treble frequencies to fine-tune your sound.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice between the ESP LTD B-334 Stain Black, the ESP LTD B-335 Stain Brown (-$10), or the ESP LTD B-335 Stain Red (-$10).

This drop is for new B-Stock instruments with the original box and paperwork. ESP has very stringent quality control procedures, and a tiny imperfection in the finish can qualify a guitar for B-Stock. These basses may have minor cosmetic imperfections which will not affect playability.

I see the “What are the issues with B stock” question a lot so I thought that I should share what I found when inspecting my new bass. The quick answer is not much. There are only 2 areas that might have classified it as B stock. First one is a nick on the top side of the headstock (pic 1). It’s noticeable up close and when compared to the bottom routes of the headstock. I’m thinking that this is what classified it as B stock. The only other thing might be with both cutaways of the body (pics 2 and 3). As the cutaway bottoms out and curves back to the front it gets a little choppy, squared and flat. No issue with playability and because of the rough body finish you can’t tell cosmetically from a distance. If this was a sanded and painted body it would be more obvious. It is an LTD and not a $2000 ESP so maybe this is the norm. When I first played it I noticed a buzz on low B. It was because the bridge pickup height was completely out of whack. I just dropped and leveled both pickups and the problem was solved. It does need a setup as the action does get a little high at the top. Nothing that a truss rod adjustment can’t fix. Pickups are fine, pots are little stiff but workable and it sounds good plugged in. Note that I’m a guitar player so I might be off with this. For the price it was a great buy. No case but you can find a new one for about 140. An extra 100 plus and you have this bass. Your results may vary but B stock for me, at this price, was not an issue. Hope this helps. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment%2FTmdK74bSaOrINbCz1rxr_DSC02913.jpg https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment%2FP1xU1KOQOeywIVkwEaKZ_DSC02941.jpg https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment%2FykxWPBQvRsKUEpJzfTa7_DSC02943.jpg
