    Comments about ESP LTD FB-4 Frank Bello Bass Guitar:

    Looks like I'm one of the first set of bassists to actually get a hold of the first batch of FB-4s. I got mine in early June. When it arrived I noticed that the neck had high frets in certain spots that caused the strings to fret out. SamAsh was cool with taking it back but they didn't know when a replacement would come in. So I decided to keep the bass and send it into ESP for warranty work. Having played guitar for years, I feel pretty confident that the neck simply needed a level, crown and polish. However, ESP ended up just replacing the neck. Now my only issue is that the side fret markers are the same color as the pearloid binding, which makes it very difficult to visually discern what fret you're on. Other than these two issues...this is actually one smoking bass. The ebony board is killer. The satin finish is great. The nut is Tusq. The new EMG JX series pickups sound great. Very lively, just like passive pickups. However, the P-pickups in the middle are very, very full sounding, very articulate. The bridge is very solid Gotoh feeling. The neck binding is very well done and the fret work is very clean. Overall this is a great bass. But it wasn't an out of the box experience this time around with ESP.
