The ESP LTD RB-1006SM Natural Splated Maple 6-String Bass Guitar combines unparalleled versatility and performance with the stunning looks of a uniquely figured maple top.

ESP is proud to introduce a special lineup of LTD basses for 2014 -- the RB Series. The product team at ESP has worked closely with renowned bassist Rocco Prestia (Tower of Power) to build and design a bass that would not only become Prestia's own instrument of choice, but would offer incredible sonic flexibility for a variety of players, styles and genres. Each RB Series bass comes outfitted with a pair of versatile passive Aguilar J and P pickups and comes loaded with an Aguilar OBP-2 preamp.

Offering a great sound with beautiful looks to match, the ESP LTD RB-1006SM Natural sports a swamp ash body and a gorgeous solid spalted maple top that showcases a natural finish. The durable bolt-on 5-piece maple/walnut neck is carved into a comfortable C contour and features a scale length of 34" and a nut width of 54mm. Bass riffs and solos are a breeze to play up in the lead zone thanks to the contoured heel. The ultra-playable maple fingerboard has a 500mm radius and carries 22 'J' frets. Unique oval-shaped inlays adorn the fingerboard to provide a classy aesthetic touch. A fitting choice for a wide range of playing styles and genres, the RB-1006SM comes equipped with a hum-cancelling Aguilar J pickup in the bridge position and an Aguilar P pickup in the neck position. For exceptional tone shaping capabilities, the RB-1006SM electronics include an onboard Aguilar OBP-2 active 2-band EQ along with Volume and Balance controls. A set of black nickel Grover tuners and a black nickel Gotoh bridge round out the hardware. Case not included.
