Ash Body and Maple/Rosewood Neck
ESP’s LTD B-205 Bass Guitar features an Ash body topped with Spalted Maple to create a visually stunning bass. The Ash produces a sweetly thick tone that can cut through any mix, with firm lows and a crisp midrange and top end. A 5pc Maple and Rosewood neck with a Rosewood fingerboard is bolted to the body and delivers a sweet, warm tone. The neck packs plenty of punch, bringing sparkle and sizzle to the high end, helping to open up the midrange and to thicken up the lows to make them firm.
The B-205 bass has a set of ESP designed SB-5 pickups to provide versatile tones with interesting complexity and offers a good amount of clarity and sustain. The bass also features an active ABQ-3 3-band EQ, with controls to boost or cut bass, mid and treble for greater control over the basses tone. Also featuring a balance knob to allow the pickups to be blended or soloed and a master control volume, the B-204 is an exceptional bass for any low budget bassists.
