ESP LTD RB-1004 Electric Bass Guitar
In stock at Guitar Center
The LTD RB-1004 electric bass rocks a swamp ash body, burled maple solid top, a thin U-shape maple/walnut neck, 34" scale and 22 extra-jumbo frets on a maple fingerboard. And an Aguilar AG 4J-HC bridge pickup & AG 4P-60 neck pickup push all your earth-rumbling notes down the signal path. A Gotoh bridge makes sure your notes have the maximum sustain imaginable, while the Grover tuners keep everything cinched down and in-tune through heavy crunches and string-stretching licks.
Reviews From Buyers
Waited months for this, loved the look of it and expected a above average quality instrument for this price point. Well, I ordered it the day it became available and it arrived in a few days. It was very light, but not in a good save your back from a long set kinda way, but more a cheap flimsy low quality way. Played it a while and really struggled to get a good vintage tone from the Aguilar pickups which was a big surprise even though I've never tried them. So that's two strikes. Ok let's recall the price-which for me was strike three; at a third or a quarter of the price this would prob be a keeper, but for what I paid I expected much more, and this puppy has to go back to the shelter. Oh, and the kicker is that the back of the neck was completely unfinished and it felt very light and cheap. I've got about 20 basses and the only one with a neck like that is the kit bass I put together, but I left that unfinished and it's one of my favorites. ESP should be ashamed at what they're asking for this one.
